This boutique hotel is a best kept secret. Simply an incredible stay. The property, the staff, and so many 'little' details added up to the perfect stay. Manager, Diego, runs an excellent establishment. The indoor/outdoor shower was one of our favorites. Very nice to have Apple TV/Netflix wired in. Fabulous bar and restaurant. Loved the linens. Thank you

I am so glad we chose to stay at L'Horizon during our recent desert getaway. From it's central location, original mid-century architecture, impeccably manicured grounds, and delicious food and cocktails it certainly is a wonderful oasis.

Disappointingly, I rate this only a 3 star Resort and Spa due to the lack of amenities one would associate with a true resort and spa. There is no real spa. No structure, no changing area and no facilities you would associate with a spa at any resort. It is merely a shrubbed off area near the pool with privacy...

It is a boutique hotel, with smallish rooms with lower ceilings on well kept grounds. The food here is exceptional!!! What l found disappointing was the following...we had reservations at the...

We just stayed at L'Horizon for four nights and absolutely adored the hotel. This is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy quality pool time. We loved the staff (especially around the pool) and the grounds are absolutely gorgeous. You're in a different world once you walk through the lobby. The rooms are gorgeous. We stayed in a Premium Pool...

Made a last minute booking, and was given a great bungalow, the staff is amazing. The room was cool and quaint it's a restored architectural gem from the 50's. The pool the bar, the rooms, the amenities all so top of the line, the privacy and quiet as well as the views can't be beat. The only down point is...

Great and memorable experience from reservation to check out.

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
