This special weekend package is a design-lover’s dream. The playful grounds of one of Gray’s favorite hotels, the Parker Palm Springs is a modern-day fantasy with hammocks under palm springs, croquet and petanque courts, vintage umbrellas and lemonade stands by the pool. Palm Springs is renowned for its legacy of midcentury architecture and design, and has no shortage of visionary murals, astounding sculptures, local history and desert culture.

This unique weekend will include two nights of hotel accommodations at the Jonathan Adler designed hotel for guests to indulge in mid-century swank. The weekend will begin on Friday with a welcome reception and dinner at the Parker hotel. On Saturday, guests will be treated to a private architecture tour featuring some of the most famous houses in Palm Springs, including the Abernathy House and William Holden Estate. Following the tour, guests will return to the Parker to enjoy a lunch at the Gene Autry Residence alongside Gray Malin. During the lunch, Gray will answer Cardmember questions and talk about his career and current projects. To cap off a wonderful afternoon, Gray will lead guests throughout the Parker on a walking tour as he shares special anecdotes about his time shooting there. To culminate the evening, guests will head to one of Palm Springs’ most iconic restaurants to enjoy cocktails, dinner and dessert at Copley’s. 

After a weekend of activities, guests will enjoy a farewell brunch on Sunday morning prior to departing. As a celebration of this special weekend, each guest will receive a custom gift bag that includes a signed copy of Gray Malin’s book along with other commemorative items from Gray Malin and the Parker.
