The Parker Palm Springs continues to inspire and delight.
At first glance, the bright, shiny Parker Palm Springs seems almost too good to be true. The mid-century marvel of a hotel boasts a uniquely storied past: Celebrities have not only enjoyed staying here, but also become more involved, as previous owners Gene Autry and Merv Griffin did. In addition, celebrity designers have put their stamp on the property over the years.
Hubert de Givenchy was at the helm of design back in 1994, with an obvious nod toward French style using Versailles as inspiration. In 2004, when the Parker was purchased again, it was the talented Jonathan Adler who molded this expansive property into something akin to the inside of a jewel box. His penchant for color and distinctive design dazzles guests from every angle, and his ability to add in modern and contemporary touches gives the property an eclectic atmosphere.
The outdoors are just as interesting and serve as extra spaces to luxuriate in the beautiful weather Palm Springs has to offer. The pools, tennis courts, outdoor bar and seating areas are meticulously kept, with beautiful flowers and fruit trees dripping with ripe lemons, grapefruits and limes. The restaurants boast well-tailored menus and exquisite wines. Counter Reformation, a secret bar, offers the most interesting menu and an experience like no other.
The Parker Palm Springs is in every way a vision of beauty and inspiration, drawing visitors to come and delight in it just as much today as in decades past.
