Romantic California Getaway: Parker Palm Springs Is a Designer Dream Come True

For Californian couples looking to embark on a Valentine’s Day weekend escapade, here are some hotel stays to fulfill all your romantic fantasies. The Parker Palm Springs is Beyoncé's own personal Coachella hideout during the star-studded music festival, so of course you can expect the hotel to be nothing but sublime.

But the Parker Palm Springs is not only Bey-worthy during Coachella. If you can believe it, the Parker is even dreamier in the winter, when the temperate climate allows you to sip lemonade by the sparkling pool, play croquet on the manicured lawns or get a massage at the glamorous spa.

The property was first the Gene Autry estate, then the Merv Griffin resort and then the Givenchy hotel before being completely redesigned by superstar designer Jonathan Adler.

Now the Parker's unique style is eclectic but always tasteful. Adler's aesthetic manages to blend together the chic mod vibe of the Sixties and the groovy cool of the Seventies with a dash of that iconic Rat Pack-era appeal.
