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.

I mean, it’s The Parker! They are known for their excellent service and friendly staff and they never disappoint. We especially loved Tony at Minibar. Such a fun guy to chat with! The grounds are so beautiful and spread out to give everyone some breathing room. I love it all.

The Parker was the location for our daughter’s wedding, and we couldn’t be more pleased. The service was excellent, despite all of the restrictions in place due to Covid. The grounds are absolutely amazing, and the food — made en mass for 170 guests — was flawless. We ate at Norma’s as well and loved it. Finally, the decor throughout the facility… Read more

The grounds are absolutely amazing, and the food — made en mass for 170 guests — was flawless. We ate at Norma’s as well and loved it. Finally, the decor throughout the facility is funky and fun. Such a cool vibe. I think our guests who stayed on property loved the bathrooms the best. Over the top! Read less

It’s hard to make every guest feel truly special but they nail that here at the Parker, wow! The concierge is amazing, they can arrange what ever you need thru daily texts to check up on you. The pool service is fun And absolutely amazing, the valet guys rock. Even with one restaurant and the spa closed we still feel as tho it was worth the price tag. The only thing I’d say is that they could update the showers and new beds ( they Weren’t uncomfortable) but could be better. We stayed in the hammock room but when we come back we will stay at a pool patio room, the second pool is where it’s at! So fun, thank you! Read less
