The Parker (part 1)

Last week, Tim and I had the opportunity to escape to Palm Springs for a little getaway sans kids! We stayed at the beautiful Le Parker Méridien Palm Springs, or more simply known as “The Parker”. The Parker has been host to Hollywood’s elite crowd for over 70 years now, and after experiencing many of the amenities that the hotel offers, I can see why. It’s a place where one can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and experience luxury at its finest. The grounds are extremely private, and the pathways throughout are surrounded by tall hedges which remind me of a scene out of Alice in Wonderland. The hotel was designed by the famed Jonathan Adler, one of my favorite interior designers. He incorporated one-of-a-kind vintage pieces with modern and contemporary furnishings, as well as hints of his signature “Hollywood Regency” style.

Our stay at the Parker couldn’t have been more perfect  (we could have easily extended for another day or two). We enjoyed muddled lemonades poolside, while snacking on delicious bites from the kitchen. We even managed to slip in a few games of pétanque and croquet! I really enjoyed chatting with the staff; they are attentive and very knowledgeable about the property. I love all of the design elements around the Parker, and am particularly enamored with the lobby. I’d like to sit in and enjoy a martini in every chair, chaise, sofa, and stool! Here are a few of my favorite photos around the lobby…
