We fell into hosting our wedding at the Parker by accident. It was a cold and rainy Saturday afternoon in December 2016 (yup, that can happen in PS in the winter!), and my now wife Amy and I were in Palm Springs for a few days of vacation before visiting family in LA for the holidays. We weren't actually staying at The Parker (we should have!), but some friends had told us to at least go have a drink there, and see the hotel while we were in town. So we did. When we arrived, we walked through the lobby filled with quirky ornaments and beautiful designer mid century furniture, to the outside - just past Norma's, the more casual restaurant on the grounds - where the majority of the hotel is located. Unfortunately, we were stopped by hotel staff at this point, and told that we couldn't walk around unless we were guests actually staying at the hotel. So Amy leans over and says to me, "why don't we just tell them we're thinking of getting married here, and maybe they'll show us around?" (we weren't - the plan was to get married in either San Francisco or NYC). I said "great idea!", so we headed back inside and asked one of the receptionists if there was anyone that could show us around. The receptionist was happy to check for us if someone from the events team was there to meet with us. Lucky for us, there was! Enter Randy. Randy is the type of event/venue manager one could only dream to have, and the Parker is LUCKY to have her! She walked around with us for 30-40 minutes, even through some rain, showing us all the possible spaces and options for a Parker wedding (of which there are many) and we fell in love with it all. Fast forward to February, and after a few dozen emails back and forth with a million questions that Randy handled with absolute grace, we had booked our wedding at The Parker!

Throughout the whole planning process, Randy, and later her colleague Shannon as well, couldn't have been more delightful or helpful. They fielded every question and concern with detailed responses, and never once made us feel like we were being a pain, which I know we were. There was 10 months of this from the time we first met Randy to our actual wedding weekend, and they were with us every step of the way, advising us on how best to do things based on their expert experience with the facilities. In July (the temperature read 120!), we went with both sets of parents to do a menu tasting. We were blown away by the quality and presentation of the food, and the friendliness of the entire catering staff that we met. Steven, the beverage manager, was awesome and accommodated all our crazy requests for special cocktails, even making sure we had the right type of ice for the drinks we wanted!

When we finally checked into the hotel on Thursday before our Saturday wedding, Randy and Shannon were both there to greet us and to make sure we got settled. The whole weekend was magic, and went off without a hitch thanks to the amazingly wonderful and super friendly staff at The Parker - especially the magical RANDY ARAIZA! Thank you all so so much for everything, we can't wait to come back soon :)

The most amazing place we visited in Palm Springs and California, a perfectly quaint hotel you can tell with lots of history and fun and superb setting and experience to match! cannot wait to return for another break!

I visited the Parker with my mother for breakfast and asked if we could check out the pool area and gardens in anticipation of booking our next stay in Palm Springs there. Unfortunately, after spending $75 on a mediocre breakfast at Norma’s (would not recommend the sweet potato and turkey hash), we were told that only guests had access to the grounds. Fair enough that they don’t want swarms of people walking around taking photos, but we would have been more than happy for guest services to offer to take us around for 5 minutes. Having travelled from Dubai to visit Palm Springs, we were very disappointed that they were unwilling to accommodate this simple request. As a result we will book our next stay at a hotel nearby that was much friendlier and won’t be inclined to return for a meal.

We were pleasantly surprised to stumble across this little jewel. Staff treated us like VIP. Very romantic!!! Please do not bring your children here- it's too special. Loved the decor in the rooms- ultra stylish.

My wife and I recently spent three nights in a suite in the North Wing.First impressions,from our valet arrival and reception check-in were of a chic and stylish hotel with classic PS style.Public spaces including restaurants and bars and a magnificent garden all have class and quirky style.
However,peel back a few layers and The Parker is showing its age.Many of the doors and furnishings look tired.The orange front door needs a good paint as did the door and cabinetry in our room.The gardens are also showing lots of wear with the lawns in particular,in need of attention.
The Parker commands top dollar and in my opinion,this charming old hotel needs a good bit of love and attention.
