The Parker Palm Springs Review
A cacophony of color and over-the-top contemporary art assembled by New York designer Jonathan Adler, this hip hotel appeals to a stylish, L.A.-based clientele. When you arrive, a greeter will whisk you from your car to your room to complete registration; the stroll takes you through a brilliant desert garden. You can find relaxation around the pools, if nowhere else—pulsating music fills the air throughout the resort. 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 clubby restaurant, Mister Parker's ($$$$), will delight any well-heeled carnivore.
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.
