Welcome to Riverside — a city brimming with California charm. Whether you want to stay in the downtown area or further away on the outskirts, you can find a range of different hotel options to meet your needs.

Situated on the Santa Ana River, Riverside is located approximately 60 miles east of Los Angeles in the Inland Empire region. It was founded in the early 1870s and quickly became a center for navel orange growing. As the decades passed and more prosperous citizens moved into the city, a golf course and polo field — the first in Southern California — were built. Large homes and popular hotels began showing up as well.

Today, Riverside boasts a number of iconic landmarks, exciting festivals, and thrilling outdoor attractions that reflect the authentic history, art, and culture of California. No matter what your reason may be for visiting Riverside, it's important that you find the best hotel for your needs so nothing stands in the way of you enjoying everything the city has to offer.

When to Visit Riverside, CA

The best time to visit Riverside is from March to May, when the weather is pleasant and temperatures hover around 70 degrees. It's a great time to explore the California Citrus State Historic Park, shop for organic items at the Downtown Farmers Market, or take a look at some local art while sipping coffee at the Daily Brew Coffee House.

June to August is Riverside's peak tourist season, so expect large crowds, packed attractions, and expensive hotel rates. If you don't mind the inconveniences and higher prices, this is a great time to visit the city. Although temperatures will reach scorching highs in the upper 80s, there are so many things you can enjoy. Within the city, you can visit Castle Park, an amusement attraction with 28 exciting rides and a refreshing swimming area. Or venture outside of the city to nearby Southern California beaches.

From September to November, temperatures drop to in the 70s, making conditions perfect for enjoying the city's many fall festivals and events. There's the Ghost Walk Riverside, Long Night of Arts and Innovation, and the famous Festival of Lights. Crowds will be much fewer, so you'll have an easier time getting around, and hotel rates will be affordable.

During the winter months, temperatures drop even further to in the 60s. Although the weather is chilly and sometimes rainy, you can still visit Benedict Castle, catch a weekly Flamenco dinner show at Cafe Sevilla of Riverside, or attend the Riverside Robot Expo.
