The ultimate desert escape. The Parker Palm Springs is a place to relax, retreat and indulge.  Recently went for the first time for Hillary's Birthday.  Lovely grounds and formerly the Givenchy  estate.  I recommend enjoying the space.  Breakfast at Norma's. Drinks by the pool.  Keep a slow pace and stay hydrated. 

Built as an estate and designed by Jonathan Adler, the Parker Palm Springs boasts 144 room including 12 villas and a 2 bedroom house on 13 lush acres. There are 3 restaurants - Norma’s (of NY fame), mister parker’s a sexy, dark and seductive French bistro and the Lemonade Stand, perfect for an afternoon bite or cocktail. The Palm Springs Yacht Club spa at over 18,000 sq. feet is well-known and a place to indulge in a treatment, take a yoga class or just lounge. Additionally the hotel has 4 red clay tennis courts and grounds filled with croquet, petanque, outdoor firepits, fountains, hammocks and so much more.
