The Parker Palm Springs Review

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. You can find relaxation around the pools, if nowhere else—pulsating music fills the air throughout the resort—and comfy nooks are scattered throughout the gardens. Rooms have textured sisal floor coverings, exotic woven fabrics in bright reds and browns, and leather seating. All have private balconies or patios (with hammocks) that are secluded behind tall shrubs. The massive villas, a splurge, are an essay in style, with woven wall hangings, white poster beds, wooden swings, and large private patios. The clubby restaurant, Mister Parker's ($$$$), will delight any well-heeled carnivore. The more subdued Norma's caters to families and those in search of comfort food.

2010 Fodor's 100 Hotel Award Winner

It's the hippest hotel in the desert. The design is unmistakably Jonathan Adler, and fans of his whimsical ceramics and rainbow-bright textiles will appreciate immersion in his playful world, where '70s swagger meets '40s Hollywood glam. Loungy-low couches around a fire pit and rooms done up with geometric-patterned rugs and high-gloss lacquer tables are all part of the show.
