Due to logistics, we were upgraded to room near fronting highway. Very surprisingly, room was calm with very efficient and quiet Samsung AC. Everything was precise, in and out , down to the clipped grass and racked pebbles . Extras are pricey, so final bill can startle with authoritative explanations at check out desk. Later at home, found extra arrival...

Stayed here one night. Had booked two nights and the manager graciously allowed us to cancel the second night when we explained that we did not think this place was for us. Lovely property, great pool, average room, average service and above average price. They charge an additional $150 per person per night to your credit card at the beginning...

L'Horizon is a carefully restored mid-century hotel with one storey rooms and suites scattered in the exquisite gardens surrounding an infinity pool. Palms sway and the mountains act as backdrop to this hedonistic fabulousness. Furnishings are fit for the connoisseur with cashmere throws on the bed, patchwork hide rugs on the floor, brass taps and light fittings and geometric black/white...

Where do I begin? The grounds are well manicured, the rooms are immaculate, and the amenities are grade A. You can tell they pay attention to the little things like the specially engraved name plaques at every door, the Le Labo products, the BMW house car ect. Even the room service is well thought out - I've never seen a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With iconic, mid-century modern architecture and a rich Hollywood history, L'Horizon offers a perfect boutique-hotel experience just minutes from downtown Palm Springs. Built in 1952 by renowned architect William F. Cody, L'Horizon was a favorite celebrity destination spot in the 50s and 60s, and it attracted guests of Hollywood's golden era including Marilyn Monroe and Betty Grable and several U.S. Presidents. Upon completing a multimillion-dollar re-envisioning by celebrity designer Steve Hermann, it will become Palm Springs only luxury boutique hotel. It's twenty five bungalows with private patios and outdoor showers, spread out over three acres, provide an exclusive and intimate feel to the property. Featuring Frette Linens, Le Labo toiletries, marble baths, and a mix of bespoke and high end vintage furniture, it is once again an iconic property in the making. ... more   less
