Travelers' Choice
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.

Hotels should act as a respite when traveling. A welcoming place to return to after all that DRIVING. This Hotel ultimately did not satisfy. One is essentially in a fish-bowl. The rooms (and bathrooms) are small. (a chair placed in a corner does not a "seating area" make. The "private patio" is indeed public- WAAAAY overpriced-and is not-by any means, a Five Star Hotel! I booked for 6 nights and got myself the heck outta there after day 3 and checked into a MOTEL 6! I complained about music being played outside by the pool at about 9:45 PM (not loud, but oh that base!) and was told: "I was not aware that the music was still on" ...five-star attention to detail? I think not. Also, very annoying pet people-difficult to find an empty chair by the pool without some labradoodle tethered nearby taking up valuable real estate. The VALET only was also a nuisance.

It was cloudy at the beach so we thought we'd chase the sun to PS. Made reservations at 10am & arrived at 12:30pm. They had a nice secluded room ready for us - big plus! Why would somebody pay extra to at the pool, no privacy & noisy I'd think. Only the pool restaurant & bar was open, fine we us. Poolside cocktails were excellent, no need to leave the property. Bring your dog & if you don't like dogs PLEASE don't stay here b/c that we all LOVED our BFFs. My biggest complaint was no covered parking (valet only) so our car was HOT whenever we needed. We've already booked our next escape, we'll be cancelling if it's sunny at the beach

Nice rooms with very cool design, I would say the good experience ends there. The hotel is severely understaffed, getting phone calls answered before our stay to confirm the reservation required a call to AMEX so they could get through. A call to the GM of the hotel, Peter, was never returned or acknowledged which is almost unheard of. Room service required multiple phone calls, food arrived incomplete, and by the time everything was complete it was cold. Not to mention priced at a premium for the mediocre food. After checking out, the hotel incorrectly credited the AMEX FHR amenities and it has so far required 3 phone calls and two emails and it is still not resolved. It should be noted the hotel has argued with me every step of the way and it will ultimately, again, require the intervention of AMEX. At $200 a night, this might be OK, at $390 for the second lowest room, with a $44 per night resort charge, and a $30 valet fee, and additional taxes and fees, for a small room that was approx 300 square feet, it is absolutely unacceptable. Lots of better choices in the area that understand luxury service. The bartender Robert and the front desk associate Chris were both helpful, the rest of the staff isn't worth mentioning.

Our Stay was Fraught with issues from check-in to check out... Below is the exact letter I sent to the GM after being prompted for feedback: Hello, There is rarely a situation that I respond to feedback inquiries with anything but positive reviews, but our stay at L'Horizon was 'shaky' to say the least. There are things that cannot be helped, and even though they are inconvenient, it is something everyone just works through, such as the card machine breaking down and having to be escorted to our room for entry. But from check-in to check out, our stay seemed to go awry at every step. -I had pre-paid for my room through Hotels.com, and when I arrived at the hotel I gave a card for incidentals, which was re-charged the full amount...I have had 500$ holds placed, but the full amount charged seemed different and it didn't build confidence that this was a normal procedure that the front desk staff looked frazzled and unfamiliar with the process. -I reserved a Pool View Room for two nights, and yet when we got to the room we had a sliver of lawn view room next to the water/jacuzzi system which hummed. Machinery is a necessity and it is an Updated Motel but there is no reason Bungalow 14 should be sold as a "pool facing suite". -Breakfast was delicious but the staff seemed insanely unorganized, which again during this health scare is understandable and we all have to be patient, but that being said weird things started to happen. Our Bill for breakfast came on two different checks because the server didn't know how to key it in as one...I checked the bill and it was correct, so no harm...but it made me aware that staff at the hotel were unfamiliar with the systems. -Fast forward to lunch, and the waiter slipped and spilled a drink on my wife, who was sunning...again, we all slip it's not a big deal. Still, I will say I was surprised when the drinks arrived again MUCH later, and they weren't comped or discounted after the spilling, I mean at the Ritz Carlton my entire spa treatment was comped because the masseuse's phone range during the session even though I protested that again... it's not an issue at all. -For lunch, we ordered two Market Salads from the bar about 15mins before lunch began...our Salads were forgotten about and finally arrived an hour and a half, later and we could tell they were hastily thrown together. When we received the bill was incorrect by roughly twenty dollars, which was corrected, but again the staff wasn't paying attention to details. -The spa canceled our reserved treatments because the spa was flooded. Palm Springs received very little rain as compared to Santa Monica, so to have a key facility/service that is a draw for guests flooded due to moderate rain is strange. -Upon checkout, I was handed a bill of charges that included the full price of the room. I explained the room was prepaid, and the staff looked bewildered and confused with now about five staff members crammed behind the front desk wheres as there was one very stressed out sweating with his shirt wrinkled and untucked staff member when we arrived. I was assured that the room charges would be refunded in 7 days and that only the charges during our stay would show. Again considering everything I will be watching my account and if by next Monday it is not resolved, I am asking American Express to flag the charge and recoup on my behalf. It's a beautiful Hotel, and the staff was very friendly. Still, we were VERY disappointed with L'Horizon on about every level...if asked if I would stay again, my immediate answer would be no Opting for La Maison or the Desert Riviera. Again I hope this review is used for spot-checking areas that L'Horizon that can be improved, and I hope the charge to my card is remedied before I have to initiate a claim. Thank You, Deryk Schlessinger

My husband and I booked and paid for a room at L’Horizon several months in advance. Two days before our scheduled arrival, we received a call from L’Horizon informing us that they were overbooked and that we no longer had a room. They offered to put us up at a sister property, The Weekend, which is not comparable to L’Horizon and was not an acceptable alternative. We called multiple times over two days asking to speak to the manager, Becky. She never returned any of our messages - we even sent her an email, to no avail - and we received no further communication at all. In the end, we scrambled to book another hotel room at the last minute. As frequent travelers, we have never been treated so dismissively and unprofessionally by hotel management in response to such a mishap. According to the front desk, we were not the only guests in this situation, so I wanted to warn others not to book this hotel.
