Beautiful architecture to experience. However we were disappointed to find a sheet listing all the things that weren't working but were on the agenda to get fixed. Windows beautiful to let in the stars and light but smeared in cleaning. Instructions to buy your own ice but no freezer to keep it in. Makes the price seem a bit over the top since not supposed to be second rate. But worth the stay for the architecture.
We stayed at the Lautner few years ago... What an incredible experience! As an architect and hotelier, we really enjoyed this place! You succeeded in preserving the original atmosphere which was great...
I really wanted to give this place a 5 star review, but my stay just wasn't 100% sorry to say. Amenities are very slim- no pool, spa, food, drink, etc. They do offer massage treatments online and I booked one when I booked my reservation along with the pet package (which is just $50 deposit for your pet to stay). They don't offer the service anymore, so my money was refunded. I asked if I could bring my own massage therapist- they said no for insurance purposes, I would have had to go elsewhere if i wanted a massage. I called to see if I could check in a bit earlier because I got into town earlier, the woman on the phone said no was a bit defensive about it. So I went to kill time in PS. At 9 am in the morning the owner was on the grounds and asked me if I heard some outdoor faucet running. She asked if she could turn off some faucet, and inquired if I paid for my pets to be in the room as she came in. I am sorry, but that was a bit rude and unnecessary. I would think management is aware of who's bringing pets and who doesn't. There was also a large condensing puddle from the AC unit that collected on top of a credenza by the TV and I mentioned that to her. She explained that was a common issue and said she would notify management to let them know I didn't do it. If it's a known problem, why would guests be blamed for something that happens regularly? Anyways, attitude should not be an amenity at a luxury accommodation. Needless to say, it's a beautiful building, meticulously restored and nicely appointed. It's definitely a must see if you are into mid century architecture. But if you are looking for luxury accommodations, this may not be the right place for you.…
We did not stay at the hotel but rather attended a wedding here. What a gorgeous place to get married. Of course the architecture is incredible, but they are also set up to make ones wedding day perfect. The food was delicious. Plenty of room for everyone to sit down. The only downside is there were only two bathrooms.
I stayed here a few years ago and couldn't have been more impressed. It was like going back in time. So vintage, yet so clean and new. Our room was an absolute dream. The attention to detail and history was flawless. It made me want to watch Mad Men! They don't really have a pool - They have something the size of a jacuzzi but not heated, since it's in the desert... and that was really ok. Plenty of places to lounge in sun or shade on the property, including our little private deck. I would absolutely stay here again, especially during a non-swimming season or Modernism Week. I couldn't take enough photos there. LOVE. IT.
We spent a quiet and secluded weekend. Close to Palm Springs and hiking in the mountains. Its also a great place for a corporate retreat. The rooms are very retro...reminds us a high end 60s get away.
