Iconic Hotel Lautner in Desert Hot Springs



The iconic desert hideaway built by legendary architect John Lautner in 1947 is reimagined today as Hotel Lautner, a stunning modern day oasis in Desert Hot Springs, California.

Hotel Lautner, formally known as The Desert Hot Springs Motel, was designed by John Lautner in 1947 as a master planned community of over 100 buildings, storefronts and pools on 600 acres in Desert Hot Springs.

Lautner’s client was the famous movie director Lucien Hubbard, the winner of the very first “Best Picture” Oscar for the silent movie “Wings.” After building the first four-unit prototype and pool, which sat kitty-corner from the property, the project came to a halt and it was subsequently used for Hubbard’s stars and starlets as a getaway from Los Angeles; it gradually fell into disuse and sat vacant for almost 20 years.
