U.S. News Review

Retro, hip, magical, luxurious the list of adjectives that recent guests attach to the Parker Palm Springs is long and overwhelmingly positive. From the exterior, the property looks like a classic Palm Springs resort, but inside, guests find themselves among chic furnishings, modern artwork and stylish facilities. Guest room decor uses white and beige hues as a jumping-off point for bold colors and quirky patterns. Rooms and suites are outfitted with private patios or lanais, LCD flat-screen TVs and minibars. The hotel features the PSYC spa and gourmet eateries that earn guests' praise. However, travelers warn that the room bills are steep and include an unwelcome resort fee. To save on a stay here, consider becoming a member of the Starwood Preferred Guest program; though it may not be obvious, Parker Palm Springs is a member of the Le Méridien hotel family. Just a few miles from Palm Springs International Airport and downtown Palm Springs, the Parker's location is ideal.

Critic Reviews

Travel + Leisure

“Adler's redesign of the 144-room Parker is perhaps the most ambitious attempt to restore the luster of Palm Springs, the one that will likely be the benchmark for the luxury resorts that follow.”


“A cacophony of color and over-the-top contemporary art assembled by New York City-based designer Jonathan Adler mixes well with the brilliant desert garden, two pools, fire pits, and expansive spa of this hip hotel that attracts a stylish, worldly clientele.”
Award: Fodor's Choice

Brides Magazine

“Picture sexy pools with chic cabanas and striking umbrella-topped lounge chairs, guest rooms with cheeky color schemes and shag rugs, a fabulous spa, and playful touches like lawn croquet. (Admit it, you know you're dying to play.)”
