Bedazzling, Happy Chic Jonathan Adler design awaits at the Parker Palm Springs. Indulgent, comfy beds with plush, soft linens pair with old Hollywood touches, adorning the walls and in ceramic inserts created especially for the Parker Palm Springs. Luxurious bathrooms feature an eclectic collection of designer amenities including Hermes and L’Occitaine.
Lounges, bars, and restaurants throughout the property cater to your every mood. However, you haven’t experienced anything at the Parker if you haven’t made at least one stop at the Lemonade Stand. Order poolside or from beneath the yellow and white striped awning stand.
Norma’s is the brightly colored open-air terrace restaurant that serves breakfast all day and night. Mind you, the concept of breakfast at Norma’s can be a no-holds-barred extravaganza of decadent proportions—it’s a habit picked up from her sister restaurant—located in New York City. But there is no denying a contagious feeling of both calm and delight as you pull up a chair or slide into a booth to peruse the menu. Go spare and minimalist with the simplicity of poached eggs and half a grapefruit or go maximalist with any one of the french toast, waffle, or pancake concoctions. Go gluten-free, vegan or vegetarian—they serve to change it up and please. The white slump block and wood interior of Norma’s is a room open, friendly and bright throughout the day—cozy, votive-lit, and discreet at night when the menu changes to a short selection of California fresh, clean entrees prepared to classic perfection or with the subtlest twist to standard.
Dark, discreet, and decadent, Mister Parker’s celebrates over-the-top decor and under-the-tank mischief. A guy’s guy sort of place with a menu to match—epicurean, savory favorites with Chef’s personal inspirations include a wine list not meant for the faint of heart. This bar happily provides your martini in lieu of an entree and desserts that extend the pleasure principle.
Mini Bar and Counter-Reformation are intimate and grandiose at the same time—both designed like a jewel box. Dark emerald stone facings with mirrored accents, blackamoor sconces, and lucite stools are just a few of the details. Pull up a chair, christen it as your own and return daily for your split of champagne, your driest gin martini or your ruby colored negroni. Wander a bit further into the lounge proper—a space that warms on a cool desert night—if not from drink then from the suspended fireplace and it’s seating surround. A mix of adjacent love seats, couches, and hanging chairs provide a setting for discreet tete-a-tetes.
On the same property, PSYC, is a free-standing emporium of custom treatments and wellness regimens with full-on in pampering and self-indulgence. White cotton terry robe, flip flops, a key to the private locker room and a thimble of cucumber-infused vodka set you on your way to one of the 15-private treatment rooms. All treatments—from facials to wraps, reflexology, and massage—are personalized to your specific requirements.
