Lodging and Conference Facility
We are staying and meeting at the beautiful Riviera Palm Springs!
Situated 100 miles inland in the beautiful Coachella Valley, Palm Springs has been a destination for southern Californians for generations. Our conference hotel, the Riviera, was once a hangout for Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and the rest of the Rat Pack. A recent review by SFGATE says it has a "playful, plush vibe (with) retro furniture and cheeky postmodern decor..." With three pools, six restaurants and bars, and warm desert air, it's bound to be a good spot for decompressing after a busy field season.
$95.00 single/double conference price until Oct. 2
Reservations: Use our conference reservation page.
