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 stayed here for a business trip and felt pampered & taken care of then entire time. Beautiful property and wonderful staff. They were very accommodating when I asked for a room away from the noisy lobby and upgraded me at no additional charge. Highly recommend the Parker!

WOW! I loved every inch of this place! I felt like I was back in the 60's, but in a modern version. The Spa was perfect! The rooms are perfect! The service was perfect! The food was perfect! I can't wait to go back!

Stay here if you want Hermès soap + IG pictures, but don’t care about your room, food, service, functional plumbing, etc. Room 1/5. Sink didn’t drain. Location 1/5. Not walkable. Food 1/5. Not a single veg option. Coffee $32 for 2 lattes Bar 1/5. $73 for 3 champagne cocktails Service 1/5. Confused about open/close times of their own sub-areas. Some folks were really nice and attentive, but others were confused. Example: called to schedule bikes, was told to call at 9:30AM, when I called at 9:30AM it turned out they actually opened at 9AM, and all the bikes had been spoken for already. We much prefer other options in the area, like The Colony, Riviera Palm Springs, or if you’re doing it for the Gram, just stay at the Saguaro for 1/4th the cost. Read less

We didn't stay here but did have breakfast in the garden and saw the spa and pool on premises. It is so lovely, I would definitely stay here the next time we're in town. Breakfast was delicious AND beautiful. Definitely get the fruit smoothie.
