“Lived up to our high expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

We stayed at The Parker during Coachella and it truly felt like a lush, peaceful oasis amidst all the crazy desert partying. The grounds are amazing: palmtrees, hammocks, petanque, a lemon stand, pools and beautiful quiet hiding spots. Service is top-notch from the valet to the pool boys attending to your every need with a big smile. Breakfast at Norma's was heaven. The decor made me feel as if I was starring in a Mad Men episode. Well, I could go on for a while longer but you get the picture.

Verdict: yep, expensive but sooooo worth it!

The products were fabulous. Loved the spa. I wish there was complimentary water. The pillows smelled like smoke. Comforter was plain. Everyone was really nice. The steam room and sauna were perfect. I loved the food at
Mister Parker's the food at the pool was just ok. The chips were kinda stale.

Great service from a new dude. He said he's only been there 3 weeks but he did a great job! Food was outstanding. Fried caprese appetizer was yum! Burger was delicious and the steak fajitas werw enough for 4 people. I ate the left overs for breakfast the next day. After our mid century modern architecture tour this was the perfect ending to our day. Next time I want to stay at the hotel.

Dear Beth P,

"The new Dude" is doing great. It takes a long and patient search to find the right individuals to work with us at the Estate, but patience pays off.

Thank you for coming in to experience Norma's. Staying at the hotel opens up another world of experiences. Please let me know the next time your coming to Palm Springs and we'll be sure you get experience every element.

Warm Regards,

Brandon McCurley

We had a lovely time and the staff was great. It was so different from the usual Palm Springs golf hotel experience. I was disappointed that on top of the $30 per day resort fee they wanted an additional $25 per hour to use the tennis courts. I hate that nickel and dime approach.

Dear Rick S,

"Not What I Expected" in a good way...what a relief!

We're very pleased to read you had a great time and enjoyed the service of our team. Tennis is one of the activities (actually the only one) that there is a fee for use of the clay courts. The other options for you to enjoy complimentary include petanque, croquet, putting green, badminton, spa day use, bicycles, and the list goes on....

Please do come back and visit us in the near future.

Warm Regards,

Brandon McCurley

Stayed here based on a recommendation of a friend. This hotel has history and nostalgia and has been re-vamped. It is advertised as non-smoking establishment. I guess Pot falls under it's own category. Every night for 3 nights someone in the hotel smoked pot AND cigarettes. It blew straight through out vent into our room. We had to have the door to our patio open as well the hallway door open. We all had headaches and burning eyes.

When they remodeled they failed to do the vent system. The odor was overwhelming. We notified management. They were unable to get us another room as they were full. No other solution was offered. HORRIBLE PLACE unless you want a free contact eye. Then you are in the right place.

And cell phone service is almost non-existent, so if you have an emergency and need to make an outside call...........good luck

Dear Tracy J,

As a non-smoking hotel we rely, as all hotels do, on guest respecting that. In the very few cases that this is not followed, we do have a cleaning fee applied for the removal of the room from service to be deep cleaned. I am sorry that this impacted you.

Good news, AT&T (The only service provider that has the issue) are erecting a tower down the street that will provide the best coverage available. No more "Can you here me now" disturbances in the gardens.

Warm Regards,

The place is great to get a few relaxing days. Very beautiful and large palm and flower gardens and a lot of nice "extras" like a crocket playing area, outdoor fire place, adult swimming pool and family pool separated, appealing interior design, very attentive staff ... all-in-all a very relaxing stay

There are few "hotels" that welcome you into their home. From the second I open the doors at the Parker I instantly get excited. It's so refreshing to stay in such a luxe environment with such down to earth people. The Parker is a dream.

Dear Teressafoglia,

Luxury with formality. Who needs, or wants, the pretentious attitude that comes with traditional 'luxury'? We don't see that approach as being relevant anymore.

We strive to provide bespoke experiences in an environment you can be yourself.

We all look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Sincerely,

Brandon McCurley
