The Horizon Hotel is a true emblem of old Hollywood’s playground in Palm Springs. It was built in 1952 for Jack Wrather, an oil tycoon, and his wife Bonita Greenville, an Academy Award nominated actress. William Francis Cody designed the modernist-style hotel with spacious rooms and a personal retreat for the Wrather family. The couple became entertainment moguls and their Wrather Corporation built hotels and attractions, including the Disneyland Hotel the Horizon Hotel originally known as L’ Horizon. The hotel was a hot destination in the 50’s and 60’s frequently hosting legendary Hollywood style parties and lounging poolside with celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe and Betty Grable.

The hotel was restored in 2006 using original blueprints to highlight the mid-century modern style.
