Welcome to the Parker



Palm Springs is like California's version of the Hamptons. I've grown up spending time in the desert since most of my mom's family resides there. My parents have a home in Rancho Mirage, so we are lucky enough to have a free place to stay. Last weekend, my husband and I needed a little break from life and wanted some place WARM. Our first thought was Miami, but as you've seen on the news, they have been having unusually cold temps lately. So we decided on the Parker.........


We have eaten dinner many times at the Parker but obviously never stayed there. For those that don't know, Jonathan Adler designed the hotel, which opened in 2004. He had this idea that the hotel should be like "your great aunt's estate." I wish I had family this cool....












Oh the "Drugs" sign, it's a vintage sign from an old pharmacy. Whenever we visit here, we end up taking pics with the sign in the background......just because we think it's kitchy










I couldn't wait to see the rooms in person....and they did not dissapoint...




My iPhone pic


A much better version....




My favorite part is the Lobby area.....check out my hubby chillin' with a martini




Norma's is a great spot for breakfast, classic Adler ceramic touches...






But my favorite part of the trip was spending time by the pool.....



I'm sure you've seen Adler's own manifesto posted in his stores. The one posted at the Spa (PSYC) did not disappoint. My favorite is number two, hahaa


P.S. The rates right now are very reasonable, check out their deals here......
