Parker Palm Springs just sent out an email about their category change next month. Award nights at this property are getting pricey moving from 12K per night to 20K. Also, they are currently in litigation with Starwood for faking occupancy reports in order to get higher reimbursements from Starwood for award nights consumed at their property. They will be likely (forced) to leave SPG once these issue have been solved.
Despite all these changes and problems, this is the hotel that has had the weirdest mix of bathroom toiletries that I have ever seen. The above photo is from the showerless bathroom and the photo below is from the shower.
They must have serious budget for bathroom amenities. I have never seen a hotel to carry seven different brands and most of then are very nice.
Parker Palm Springs is a swanky hotel with very nice bathroom amenities (or at least was when I was there last time). I just never quite understood what was the message they were trying to get through by carrying seven different brands?
