Hosting the January Elite Meetings Alliance was an unqualified home run. The event paid for itself with new definite bookings in 3 months.

Our time at the Riviera was a seamless experience; from the cleanliness and luxury in our guestrooms to the effortless and exceptional accommodations for our meetings. We will be sure to return as we consider this gem in the desert a home away from home. - Tressa Mathews, Field Executive Director, MAC Cosmetics
Every Riviera staff member has done an excellent job with follow up and service. They are easy to work with and were helpful with all of my requests. The food and audio visual team were highlights of our event. I couldn’t be more pleased! - Jana MacWilliams, Area Sales Manager, Audi of America
Thanks so much providing a really excellent weekend for our group. We all had a great time. The dinner was very good and the service was terrific. All of the group were very happily surprised by the room upgrade and enjoyed the hotel ammenities. Those of us who slept in had a delightful breakfast on the pool patio and the conversation was all about what a great time they were having. So, thanks again to all for your efforts. Best regards. - Jack Curtis, Ferrari
We recently concluded our SRT meeting at the Riviera...very successfully I must say. Besides the scientific program, a big part of the success was your facilities and staff. Katie and Lauren were very accommodating and patient through all the snafus during registration and meeting arrangements. Brandon and his colleagues at the reception put a smile on everybody's face at check-in. And Angie (?) and the chef-in-charge (I forget his name) were excellent with their service, courteousness and the quality of food was amazing. These are comments not just from me, but "all" the attendees. They highlighted that a big part of the charm of the place was how courteous ALL the staff were...from the wait staff, to the room service folks to staff just working around the grounds, who all said hello and had a smile on their faces. Dave Allen, at Swank AV, were very provided excellent service and we did not have a single glitch in AV throughout the meeting. He was even creative the first night in figuring our some alternatives to get our presentation working. Our participants come to meetings for the scientific sessions, but their mood and enjoyment is greatly complemented by the environment they are in and yours was the best we have experienced. the previous one was a disaster form that point of view! We greatly enjoyed your hospitality and congratulate you on the great staff you have there. Would be glad to recommend your facilities to others if needed. - Dr. Koushik Seetharaman, Associate Professor and Cereals Chair, University of Guelph
