VISITING THE PARKER HOTEL IN PALM SPRINGS






While we were in Palm Springs we stopped in at the Parker Hotel to get a first hand view of the hotels decor and amenities. The Parker was designed by Jonathan Adler (who's pottery is available at Provide) and is a glamourous mix of 60's Palm Springs and a whimsical modern style. The lobby is filled with unexpected items that when combined together create an overall look that makes you feel as if your where transported back in time to the days of the Rat Pack.

We had a lovely lunch outside at Norma's and then walked the very impressive grounds that are truly an oasis in the middle of the desert. We dreamed about staying at one of the suites like the Gene Autry Residence (yes, he lived there) and lounging by the pool in the beautiful California sun. Dreams can come true, right?
