Hotel Lautner



A former producer’s retreat is now anyone’s retreat, designed by mid-20th century California architect-to-the-stars, John Lautner.

This is a most unique place to stay and a time capsule to mid-century design and culture in Southern California’s Palm Desert. Far from the crowds in nearby Palm Springs, though close enough to be a part of that action, this was originally a retreat built in 1947 for a film producer. Hotel Lautner is named for its architect, John Lautner, who has designed many homes in the desert region as well as Hollywood, where many of his clients lived.

It was a dream realized who Tracey Beckman and Ryan Trowbridge who acquired the property and undertook the restoration of this California landmark property, with great results.

A true boutique hotel, it is comprised of only four self-contained suites, which can be fully rented out for exclusive use, or by individual unit. Units are furnished with full kitchens and classic mid-century furnishings that are still popular today. Each unit has a private patio with desert plantings and lounge furniture compatible with the overall design. There is a saline spa and outdoor shower, and a shared fire pit for grilling.
