Bottom Line

If it has anything, the Parker has style. Expect eclectic and 70s-inspired decor with a modern edge, and an entranceway that belongs on a movie set. The Parker has two dining options: one a breakfast-all-day diner and the other a dinner-only spot with a menu that changes daily. The Parker manages to be dressed-up glamorous and laid-back cool all at the same time. The rooms are just as impressive, with white brick walls, white decor, and private balconies.

Oyster Hotel Review


The Parker is 10 mintues from the heart of downtown Palm Springs.

Map of The Parker Palm Springs

Formerly Gene Autrey's Melody Ranch and Merv Griffin's Givenchy Resort and Spa, The Parker has had to shed some seriously kitschy history and introduce its own version or eccentric glamour. The hotel is on the main vein of Palm Canyon Drive, just south of the center of downtown Palm Springs.

Once known as a destination only suited for spring breakers or retirees, Palm Springs has become a classy and clean desert destination for anyone looking for an uncluttered city with resort amenities. With a healthy gay scene and the Coachella valley (and music festival) just over 30 minutes away, the Palm Springs crowd is slowly becoming harder and harder to define. Most who come are there to spend, exercise and relax.
