Parker Palm Springs

Palm Springs, USA

The hotel

Cheeky yet civilised, Parker Palm Springs lives up to its belief ‘you are only young once… but you can be immature forever’ by throwing in witty twists to desert living. After all, who said a desert-bound hotel couldn’t have a yacht club? (To be fair PSYC’s actually more ‘American country club’, with tennis, spa, and 24-hour fitness zones). The Parker’s inexplicably lush gardens host highbrow petanque and croquet, while its three pools include a 24-hour adult only pool, its rooms promise WiFi, and its dining spans Norma’s diner-style comfort food, Mini Bar’s sharing boards, and the seductively indulgent bistro, Mister Parker’s. And it’s all near downtown Palm Springs and El Paseo Drive, with local attractions including Moorten Botanical Garden and Cactarium, the Rimrock and Canyon Plaza shopping centres, the convention centre, and Knott’s Soak City Palm Springs.

Since joining The Leading Hotels of The World Chain, The Parker Palm Springs, which was already quite spectacular, has become truly world class. The hotel is set on extraordinary grounds that are lush, cool, and tropical, contrasting with the desert environment it is in. The amenities like the two pools, Normas restaurant, and incredible private and public outdoor fire pits, hammocks, sculpture gardens, and more, make you feel like you have the entire resort to yourself. The rooms are beautifully and whimsically decorated and the lobby is a stunning reference the the glory days of the best of the mid century. The staff however, seals the deal as they cater to your every whim, and anticipate every needs. They are the definition of a world class staff. Special shout out to Peter Ybarra, as a true leader at the Parker. Everyone in their lifetime should have the opportunity to stay at the Parker. It is a special place. There is nowhere like it.

Awesome hotel. Great vibe. Incredible service. Entire adult pool crew was excellent. One word of caution, if visiting in the winter, it seems the pools get shaded pretty early in the day ~2pm. I’m sure it’s much better as the sun gets higher in the sky but something to consider if you are traveling for some sun to relax by the pool. That was us… Read more

I’m sure it’s much better as the sun gets higher in the sky but something to consider if you are traveling for some sun to relax by the pool. That was us but we still had an absolutely wonderful time. Room was great, amenities were great, crowd was great. Would stay again. Read less

The service is excellent, the vibe is hip and you cannot beat the gardens. We really enjoyed our stay at this fun property and everyone from the Valet to the great bartender made our stay enjoyable and memorable. The Adler design is great and we really liked our room.

The service is excellent, the vibe is hip and you cannot beat the gardens. We really enjoyed our stay at this fun property and everyone from the Valet to the great bartender made our stay enjoyable and memorable. The Adler design is great and we really liked our room. The hotel had old bones though and the bathrooms and spaces are old design though nicely designed. The gardens, pool and outdoor areas are perfect for COVID19 friendly travel and of course Norma’s is superb. A must stay property in Palm Springs. Read less

My favorite hotel with definitely the best staff! While I am not a frequent reviewer my experience at Parker Palm Springs leaves me compelled to share for others. First, I agree with a review previously posted: "This is a GORGEOUS hotel and super retro chic!!" The grounds are spectacular and so relaxing in the beautiful PS weather. I have to say I don't feel the current 3 star rating is a fair reflection at all. In fact, in my very fortunate experiences of travelling I would go as far as saying this is my favourite hotel. Apart from the points made above I have to give a shout out to Yagmur who is easily the most friendly, welcoming and helpful hotel manager you will ever meet. He made our stay a true delight. Let’s keep this simple - simply must stay here if you go to Palm Springs!! Read less
