Follow in the footsteps of serious Hollywood royalty (think Marilyn Monroe and Betty Grable), who stayed here in the 1950’s
L’Horizon was originally designed in 1952 by renowned architect William F. Cody as a private family retreat for the television producer, oil tycoon, and legendary hotel owner Jack Wrather and his wife, Hollywood actress Bonita “Bunny” Granville. Wrather was one of the most important California figures of the 1950’s, producing both “The Lone Ranger” and “Lassie”, building the Disneyland hotel, and opening the Queen Mary and the Spruce Goose. He commissioned a residence with 20 guest houses be built in Palm Springs as a getaway for his Hollywood friends to come join him relaxing poolside. He named his estate "L’Horizon" and the guests of the property included Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe, Presidents Reagan and Nixon, as well as countless other luminaries.
Designed by Iconic architect William F. Cody, the low slung bungalow hotel is now considered to be one of Cody’s finest pieces of work and is one of the most significant examples of mid-century architecture on the West Coast.
Now returned to its original name, glamour, and luxury, L’Horizon Resort and Spa has been transported back to its former glory, while our renovations and additions have moved the boutique property on to its next storied chapter.

Wonderful, intimate venue for our wedding. We loved having our friends and families surrounding us for the entire weekend. The hotel and their amazing staff only made this even better. They provided exceptional service. And the pool and scenery aren't bad either!Sent on 03/18/2013

This hotel was a great location for our wedding. One thing that was very important to us was privacy as we didn't want people who weren't part of the wedding, invited guests or vendors to be able to watch or even pass by our wedding and reception. Because of the small quantity of rooms (only 21) we were able to rent out the entire hotel for the weekend for our friends and family. The hotel is such a great setting of 50s architecture (one story buildings and swimming pool in unique shapes) with lots of green grass and palm tree and mountain views. Jesse and Vanessa were both very helpful and a pleasure to work with. The only thing to note is that this hotel does not have a lounge, bar or restaurant, so you will need to plan accordingly for meals off the property during your stay, except for their complimentary continental breakfast that was excellent!Sent on 07/08/2011
