Mister Parker’s Guide to Love

“Romance starts with a private bungalow.”

— Mister Parker


Rudolph Valentino, the great lover of the silent film era and an icon of desire even to this day, understood that love was more than just words. For Valentino, his romantic overtures had to be expressed in other ways – a look, a mood, and most importantly, in the right moment.

Parker Palm Springs, long a favorite romantic getaway of Hollywood, is renowned as the perfect setting for those perfect moments. Nestled on thirteen acres, our private desert oasis feels like it was created for romance – especially on Valentine’s Day. Whether you want to propose or just repose, our estate is an ideal destination.

Mister Parker, our master of joie de vivre, knows more than a thing or two about romance and believes that like Valentino, it is all about setting the mood. His distinctive style is one of the reasons our guests keep coming back. What truly makes our hotel romantic is how people feel when they spend time here, and is why many guests have been inspired to book their wedding with us.

And why would they not? Parker Palm Springs is considered one of the best and most exclusive wedding venues in Palm Springs, if not all of California. Here, people always feel like they are on a honeymoon, of one sort or another. Guests constantly tell us that they lose track of time, their shoulders drop, and they feel satiated – physically and emotionally. 

A great romantic hotel stay starts with a great room and renowned designer Jonathan Adler has created an unforgettable collection of Palm Springs hotel rooms and suites to suit whatever moment you are looking for. Favorites include:

Junior Suite – At 600 square feet, this suite provides plenty of room for romance. It includes a lush private garden, 2 bathrooms – one of which has a party shower – and a sexy four poster bed (fluffy handcuffs not included).


Private Villa – Enjoy your privacy in a stunning, spacious, and oh-so comfortable residence that feels like home. It offers easy access to the rest of the resort, including our on-property Palm Springs Yacht Club, a spa emporium of wellness and relaxation. 


The Gene Autry Residence – The ultimate hideaway, this crown jewel of accommodations in Palm Springs offers seclusion-seeking couples the space and luxury to indulge themselves. Amenities include a large private patio, screening room, fully equipped kitchen, and your own treatment room with sauna.


When it comes to dining, Mister Parker is a renowned bon vivant and his palate is impeccable. With a variety of on-property establishments, including Norma’s, Counter Reformation, Mini Bar, and Lemonade Stand, the range of delectable food and drink options ensures no appetite ever goes unsatiated. And for those couples comfortably ensconced in their love nest, we provide in-room dining and bottle service. As Mister Parker says, “When you start with a good meal, you never know where the evening will lead.”

Another important aspect of the Parker Palm Springs experience is the privacy afforded our guests. Our acres of secluded desert flora and miles of walking paths offer an array of amenities waiting to be discovered. With hammocks swaying between giant palms, Terre Battu tennis courts, croquet lawns and Pétanque courts, and three gorgeous swimming pools, guests find it so easy to spend their entire time with us without ever leaving the estate.

While a lot goes into making us perhaps the romantic hotel in Palm Springs, when it comes to the romance itself, Mister Parker believes it does not have to be complicated. “You just need to have the right touch,” he says. “But a chilled bottle of bubbles on hand doesn’t hurt either.”
