The Parker Palm Springs

Famous for its mid-century architecture and design, desert resort city Palm Springs in California’s Coachella Valley is the epitome of retro-chic. The must-visit destination of Hollywood’s elite in the 1950s and ‘60s, Palm Springs is now home to some of the most stylish boutique hotels, homes, and restaurants in the state – and is just moments from the famed Coachella Festival.

The city is all about the tourism, making visitors spoilt for choice when it comes to hotels and places to stay, but The Parker Palm Springs is up there as one of the best. Designed by New York City-based designer Jonathan Adler, The Parker is everything you could want from a Palm Springs bolthole: bold colours, mid-century shapes and details, and enough seclusion to feel like a star from Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Featuring no less than 144 rooms, 12 villas and a two-bedroom house, three restaurants and a spa, The Parker oozes with opulence. With secret nooks throughout the gardens, relaxation-inducing swimming pools, yoga classes, tennis courts and good old-fashioned croquet, The Parker Palm Springs is the ultimate resort getaway and perfect for a stylish Coachella base.
