Hotels >Parker Palm Springs
Beautiful hotel with unrivaled design. Love the landscape and that much of it feels private. Incredible spa + a 24 hour pool not to be missed. This is the place to be seen.
A stylish getaway in the desert. Expect to find many PYTs soaking up the sun rays at the chlorine-free saline pool, or playing tennis at one of the property's courts.
Normas is too Expensive and too Uptight!. Had breakfast here today. The veggie omelet I had was dry. Maybe that was because I didn't add cheese, but at $21 for the omelette I figured adding cheese would have added at least 3 to 6 more dollars. I get a bad vibe at this place and it has to do with their attitude and policies. The bottom line is they charge way too much for an ordinary breakfast.
awesome. Awesome palm springs desert getaway! this is the one hotel i enjoy the most! the golf courses are fabulous too
My boyfriend and I went to the Parker a few weeks ago during the week, where they have a really great room rate. We were both taken by the chic retro style of Johnathan Adlers vision of fun easy going life style that you walk into and forget all your worries. The Hotels sense of humor along with Mr. Adler is awesome and quirky. We love the amazing gounds and the sweet breakfast menu. The French Toast I had was like having a birthday cake for my 10th birthday. The service is excellent for food and guest services. The only thing I could see to improve is the pool side menu. The Items are priced right for the type of hotel they are, but the food lacked flavor and creativity. They do allow dogs under 20 lbs for a $150.00 daily rate which is a little outrages, but maybe a certain comedian had something to do with that policy after the fact. LOL
Over all The Parker is a great place to escape from any concrete jungle.
By far the BEST hotel in Palm Springs. I have been coming to the Parker ever since it first opened and I have never been disappointed. I have friends who have complained about service or price (yes, it can be a pretty deep-pocket experience, but if you come in the summer you can get rooms for as low as $160), but I have never personally had a bad moment at this place. From the moment you arrive on the property, everything is catered to your needs and making sure you're comfortable. The grounds alone are worth it --there's practically every kind of plant and tree on the premises, a croquet lawn, a fabulous spa, hammocks, a fire pit with butterfly chairs, grapefruit & orange trees that you're free to pick fruit from & have freshly squeezed for you if you like ... the list goes on. The beds are super comfortable and so are the sheepskin rugs, but I do admit that they really need to upgrade their TV's -- you'd expect from such a cool hi-end spot that the TV's would be flat screens. As for toiletries, they used to offer Hermes soap in every room, but the last couple of times I've been those seem to be curiously absent. Even so, the saltwater pools are awesome and Mister Parkers is fantastic. Normas is incredible as well, altho sometimes it's a little hit-and-miss w/the fancy omelettes, but the oj is perfect! I mean.. even the glasses and dishware is cool. No detail has been spared at this place and that's why I love it so. If you're big into design, you'll love this place. The location is off the main area of downtown, but you'll almost not want to ever leave .. and w/the restaurants & spa onsite, there's really no reason.
The place to do Palm Springs like you've never done it before..
Quirky, irreverant and utterly luxurious, this historic property may look like Austin Powers' wardrobe exploded all over it, but the real man behind its unmatched--and mismatched--look is acclaimed design guru Jonathan Adler. A hodgepodge of decades--from medieval knights in shining armor to Brady Bunch-era Peruvian wall hangings--the aesthetic is one of sheer exuberance. Or, as employees of "The Estate" like to say, "happy chic." Aimed at being a "five-star without the attitude," the 131-room, 12-villa resort's main building was originally built in 1959 as California's first Holiday Inn. Today, the 13-acre property feels less like a hotel and more like your eccentric, globe-trotting aunt's home. Employees do not wear name badges (because the service should be so good, so personal, you'll remember their names) and the villas are named after the owner's grandchildren. The green marble-and-mirror lined Mini Bar is where bartender Kevin will serve you a stiff one with his own vodka infusions using local flowers and herbs, while Norma's is the on-site diner for breakfast and lunch. For dinner, guests indulge in a decadent meal at Mister Parker's, the property's urbane den of fine dining.
Cool atmosphere, nice spa, pool - great service.. Showed up at The Parker without really knowing anything about it. Was pleasantly surprised. It's definitely a throwback to the swinging sixties (I expected Sean Connery's 007 to show up at any moment). The design is very cool and the service is great. Beautiful desert gardens on a multi-acre resort-style property. Lots of places to get romantically lost at night. Nice bar, good cafe (didnt try Mr. Parkers restaurant). The room was decent. The spa was great, very upscale. The pool was fun, good for people watching (only drawback being that there were a lot of "industry" people there - do they EVER stop talking about business?). This place is great for a weekend getaway for two - not really for singles or kids.
resort sold. resort has been sold-everything is different not what it used to be. would not recommend
