Jonathan Adler's Parker Palm Springs

You'd think after battling the summer heat for months, the last place I'd want to be is the desert.  But Jonathan Adler's Parker Hotel in Palm Springs is calling my name, especially in the midst of a busy week.  Built in 2004,  the former Givenchy Resort underwent a $27 million reboot, adding 13 acres and 144 rooms of frolicsome Jonathan Adler-designed spaces.  The centerpiece of the 13-acre property is the legendary pool—chlorine-free so as not to turn my blonde tresses green.  A second, chlorinated jewel-box-sized pool is quieter and has an accompanying whirlpool. You’ll also find lawn croquet, pétanque, golf and tennis, and a funky brunch spot called Norma's.

The 16,500 square foot spa, Psyc, offers delicious treatments like the vanilla sundae and guilty pleasures.  But the spa lobby is delicious enough for me:
