Rooms & Rates

This new boutique hotel -- the only Leading Hotels of the World hotel in Palm Springs -- was originally built in 1952 by renowned architect William F. Cody as a private residence for Jack Wrather, a TV producer, oil tycoon and hotelier. It was built with 20 guest houses so his friends in Hollywood could come stay on the weekends. Those friends include the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable and President Regan, among others. Having recently undergone a multimillion-dollar renovation from designer Steve Hermann (known for his work on celebrity homes), the hotel maintains that 1950s Hollywood glamour and midcentury modern architecture with luxurious accents.

All of the 25 bungalows are sleek in design, incorporating natural elements, neutral colors and plenty of light streaming through floor-to-ceiling glass walls. They are decked out with luxe amenities, including vintage furniture, plush Frette linens, marble bathrooms with rain forest showers, Nespresso coffee machines, Apple TVs, Le Labo bath products and furnished outdoor patios. Larger bungalows get even more luxurious with fireplaces and private outdoor showers; the Residence bungalow even has its own private pool and yard. Rather than a number, room have the name of the guest on them for the utmost in personalized service.

As if you couldn't get any more luxurious, the restaurant, SOPA is run by chef Chris Anderson, who worked at some of the best restaurants in the states, including Alinea in Chicago. His innovative cuisine is served up in an alfresco dining space. Pamper yourself at the spa, which offers an indoor/outdoor space with private outdoor showers. The pool is for guests only and daily treats are passed around -- from ice cream to shots of tequila -- making it a very intimate experience. Other indulgent complimentary amenities include twice-daily hand and foot massages. To top it off, take in views of the surrounding San Jacinto Mountains during your stay.

From the press:
  • "The Mad Men look may be everywhere these days, but at L'Horizon -- a 1952 estate once frequented by Ronald Reagan and Marilyn Monroe -- Midcentury Modern isn’t just a trend, it’s built into the property’s DNA" -- Travel + Leisure

The decor and design is beautiful. The rooms are quiet and clean with lovely lighting and details. And RJ at the front desk was very nice.
Other Comments
They were so understaffed that it felt like they were still trying to work the kinks out. They advertise a Spa but there isn't actually a facility, only in-room services. I can't really imagine getting a scrub (which they advertise) in my room. The restaurant advertised a Michelin rated chef and listed his menu on the website but he is no longer with the company. The food was so salty one morning that I couldn't eat my breakfast and it took hours for the dirty dishes to be cleared from our patio.
