Enjoy a rare opportunity to tour the award winning Hotel Lautner designed by legendary architect John Lautner in 1947. Along with the John Lautner Foundation, tour all four luxury units of this world renowned property. The iconic desert hideaway once known as the Desert Hot Springs Hotel was reimagined as the award winning Hotel Lautner in 2011. The owners, Tracy Beckmann and Ryan Trowbridge meticulously renovated the property over a period of 3 ½ years. They paid homage to the four primary elements used in the original construction of the property: concrete, steel, redwood and glass winning the “Palm Springs Modern Committee – Best Commercial Renovation 2011” and “12th Best Designed Hotel” by California Home + Design.
The tours range from: 2 afternoon 1 hour tours of the hotel and the newly anticipated “Laut 47” event space, 1 “VIP” twilight tour which offers a chance to meet the owners and enjoy appetizers and wine catered by Two Bunch Palms, and lastly a limited number of “VIP” tour/dinner tickets available offering the “VIP” tour plus a 4 course tasting and wine pairing at the new Essence restaurant at Two Bunch Palms.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the John Lautner Foundation, striving to preserve the Lautner archive, educate the public on the architecture of Lautner, and provide support for preservation, protection and maintenance of all Lautner structures. Be a part of this important movement by supporting the foundation so that you too can play an integral role in preserving Lautner’s architectural legacy.
