Hotel Lautner Before and After, Orange County Auctions Roll On

New, 23 comments

DESERT HOT SPRINGS: Tracy Beckmann, one of the owners of the newly renovated John Lautner-designed hotel confirms the hotel has soft-opened, and sends some photos of the exterior. And hey, it's not a motel. More to come on this story, including interior shots. But price, you ask? There's an introductory rate at $350 per night. “Hotel Lautner” is described as a hybrid between hotel and vacation rental property, according to Beckmann. The last three photos are the "before" shots, dating back to when Beckmann and her partner bought the place in 2008. [Curbed InBox]
