The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa is not just a luxurious AAA Four-Diamond Riverside hotel – it's a National Historic Landmark and a member of the Historic Hotels of America dating back to 1876.  

This property is a destination, inspiring a sense of romance and enchantment as if it were an authentic European castle. Guests will encounter grand archways, flying buttresses, lofty domes and towers and classic, old-world décor with modern sophistication. 

The luxurious downstairs on-site bar is named "The Presidential Lounge" and features drinks named after former U.S. leaders.

This enormous property occupies an entire city block in downtown Riverside and boasts easy access to the Riverside Convention Center. 

It's also known for its incredible, beloved, over-the-top holiday lights display called the "Mission Inn Festival of Lights," which has been taking place for more than 30 years, traditionally from late November through early January. 

Pro tip from Metrolink employee Matthew B: They have an amazing courtyard, and a great restaurant!
