This hotel is an oasis. The architecture is incredible, and the interiors are incredibly decorated, fitting the property. The owners include great records and cds. The lighting of the property and the plants is amazing.The firepit is relaxing to hang out near. I didn't try the dipping pool because it was cold out, and it is not hot tub, it is a dipping pool. I stayed in room 2, which was incredibly cool, with the plants surrounding the bed. This hotel screams sexy. I can't wait to go back.

“Fun, interesting but considerable shortcomings too”

I'm not going to repeat any of the items mentioned by the prior reviewer in "A few things to know." Read that -- it's all true! I will add my .02. My sig other and I jumped at the chance to stay at a Lautner designed hotel -- the architecture is the real draw here, all wood, glass and midcentury modern. The downside is the ample windows left us exposed to a very tall and bright security light on the premises that stays lit all night long.I don't know the crime statistics in Desert Hot Springs but something must be up for them to resort to such a drastic measure. We never had darkness in our unit and had to wear sleep masks (yes, the room comes with two). Fortunately the bed, although small, is very comfy with soft Italian linens. I slept well in spite of the klieg light. It's quiet at night and you won't hear a peep from the hipsters in the adjacent units. They've added a few amenities that didn't exist at the time of the original construction in 1947 e.g. a Keurig coffeemaker and a flat screen TV (hidden behind an oil painting). You'll get two Keurig cups gratis and asked to pay $3 for any beyond that. The bathroom comes with L'Occitane toiletries and Frette linens, no complaints there. The kitchen comes equipped with a "beverage center" that keeps its contents at 46-degrees -- so not a real refrigerator and don't expect ice cubes. Luckily it's a quick trip to the nearby supermarket or you'll be drinking your cocktail straight up. It's an excellent place for relaxing which you can do by the communal fire pit, on the chaise lounges in your private outdoor patio or in the small warm saline spa pool (not large enough for actual swimming and no jacuzzi). Very slow wireless internet. We really enjoyed staying at such a unique property with all the care taken to the restoration and interior design but would have liked to know about the various shortcomings in advance...kind of pricey for what we got.

“Amazing Experience!”

Amazing three day experience at Hotel Lautner in the "Honeymoon Suite" (Room 1) with my wife on our first trip down to California. It was a perfect combination of beautiful architecture, great design, and a tranquil setting far enough removed to feel like you're sleeping alone in the middle of the desert. The serene and well-designed environment allowed for a much needed time of relaxation. The highlight had to be watching the sunrises, sunsets, and stars in the middle of the desert through the many windows of the space (including those directly above the bed); it's an experience that is near spiritual. Highly recommended for those wanting to unplug and recharge, those lovers of great design and architecture, and those wanting to be challenged by the beauty of isolation in nature. Tracy and Rick were both great and incredibly attentive during our stay, and I feel very lucky that we had the opportunity to spend the main bulk of our trip here. The location was the best of both worlds in that the environment naturally forces you to appreciate the beauty of the desert, yet is still within 20 minutes or less (driving) of nightlife options in Palm Springs. We will definitely be return guests and highly recommend Hotel Lautner!
