The Desert Riviera Hotel in Palm Springs has been chosen the No. 1 hotel for exceptional service by TripAdvisor, the world's largest travel website, while two other Palm Springs hotels, Hotel California and La Maison, also finished in the top five.

Travelers' Choice Exceptional Service award-winners were determined based on the millions of reviews and opinions of TripAdvisor travelers worldwide, taking into account the quality of reviews and ratings for service.

One Riviera customer commented on the website, "What really made our stay memorable was the staff. Everyone made our stay incredibly pleasant, from morning coffees around the pool to organizing a birthday party, to helpful advice on how to enjoy our holiday."

Hotel California (at right) claimed No. 2 in the top 10 while La Maison (pool area below) garnered No. 5.

"Palm Springs is a magnet for TripAdvisor travelers, thanks to its picturesque landscape and abundant sunshine, but it's also the friendly hoteliers and imaginative personal touches found in some of its top accommodations that keep TripAdvisor members going back," said Wendy Perrin, Travel Advocate for TripAdvisor.

The awards recognize top accommodations for service in the world and individual lists for Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, Caribbean, China, Europe, Japan, Mexico, Middle East, South America, South Pacific, the U.K., and the U.S.

"Travelers have millions of hotels to choose from, and service is one way to stand out in the crowd. It's clear in reading our hotel reviews that when you have a happy customer, they spread the word."
