The Riviera Palm Springs will undergo a multimillion dollar expansion this year, to be completed in mid-2013, adding meeting space and a new pool area. 

Riviera already has the second largest meeting venue in Palm Springs with more than 45,000 square feet of meeting and event space, but the updates currently underway will tack on 3,000 more square feet of conference space to the establishment.

During the renovations, the property’s Deep End pool will be expanded, and a third pool will be built that can be booked for private groups. The revamped pool area will add two fire pits, eight cabanas, and a full bar, all of which can be booked for a reception space.
