Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Parker is set in beautiful, secluded gardens just a few miles from downtown Palm Springs.

Rooms at The Parker

The rooms, suites and villas are airy, spacious and colourful, with kitsch touches in their low-slung armchairs and brightly-patterned rugs for an overall contemporary and stylish effect. Private balconies or patios are standard, where you can relax in a hammock. 

Food & Drink

Norma’s is a five-star diner which serves up comfort food and all-day breakfast on the sun-kissed terrace, as well as fresh Californian fare in the evenings. Mister Parker’s is a stylish bar with an extensive wine menu, or you could head to the Paris-style Counter Reformation bar for a glass of vin rouge, or relax by the fireplace at Mini Bar, which offers sharing plates along with drinks.

Facilities

There are several pools to cool off in and relax beside, as well as a fitness area, and you can unwind with some yoga. For some first-class pampering, enjoy a personalised spa treatment at the swish Palm Springs Yacht Club. 

Activities at The Parker

The Parker has manicured lawns for croquet and pétanque and four red-clay tennis courts. Play a game of pétanque, followed by a refreshing citron pressé under the shade of a yellow umbrella at the Lemonade Stand.  

Further afield, there are countless hiking trails just outside of town in the Mojave Desert and around the San Andreas fault-line craters. If you’re in town at the right time, follow the stars and head to the Coachella Music Festival, returning to your hotel for the inevitable pool parties that keep going well after the show is over.
