Hotel Lautner is the first of its kind “hybrid” between luxury vacation rental property and micro-boutique hotel.

Our guests are free to live the “Lautner Lifestyle” in their own private flat we have equipped with all the creature comforts of a “home away from home”. Nowhere else can you sleep in a John Lautner designed residence without owning one or being lucky enough to have a friend that does! You can also rent out the entire compound for the ultimate retreat with family and friends. Please contact the office directly at 760-832-5288 for more details.

Our hotel is comprised of four ingenious interlocking structures. The dramatic play of light throughout the day and night is achieved with the thoughtful use of skylights and glass walls. An impressive succulent garden wraps each unit on three sides giving the guest the magical feeling of living in a terrarium. The outdoor patios and garden areas are four steps up giving the room a feeling of being nestled in the desert earth. Each of the four units is remarkably spacious and is uniquely appointed with luxurious vintage modern furnishings and boutique hotel amenities.
