Well ensconced on the superluxury Palm Springs hotel scene, is a $27-million renovation of the former Gene Autry Melody Ranch and then the Merv Griffin Givenchy Resort and Spa known simply as the Parker. If you have been to either of these, you won't recognize the makeover. The 13-acre property has 131 rooms, 12 one-bedroom villas, and the original Gene Autry house. In keeping with the desert decor, the rooms are basically a relaxed white with light wood overtones. And bathrooms include both tub and shower. Two restaurants serve your every desire: Norma's has all-day breakfast for late sleepers, including the renowned $1,000 sevruga caviar and lobster omelet, served indoors or on an outdoor terrace; Mister Parker's presents a daily changing dinner menu in an intimate atmosphere (closed Mon-Tues). A chic boutique, Veri Peri, features up-scale designs. Activities center around four red clay tennis courts, four pools (two of them heated), and the Palm Springs Yacht Club spa, to revive the jet-lagged body, and a 24-hour gym to get it back in shape. Golfers will be able to use the next door Seven Lakes Country Club's 18-hole golf course, where President Dwight D. Eisenhower reportedly scored his only hole in one.

A variety of gardens can be found surrounding the property. Norma's diner is a classy place and it serves breakfast all day long, both indoors and outdoors.
