L'Horizon Hotel in Palm Springs; A Wrather Hotel

Excerpt from Palm Springs Magazine

Built in 1952 by oilman and movie mogul Jack Wrather and his actress wife Bonita Granville, the 22 room boutique hotel was a favorite hideaway for the socially well-connected couple's Hollywood friends, not the least of who were Lassie and Marilyn Monroe. Lassie, money-spinning star of Wrather's productions, had a private suite, it's not known which bungalow Marilyn preferred. The Wrathers had their own separate residence on the property.
