LATEST NEWS: SPA HOTEL DEMOLISHED

The Spa Bathhouse and Hotel was designed in 1955, a collaboration by noted modern architects William Cody, Donald Wexler, Richard Harrison and Phillip Koenig. One of the most striking features of the building’s design was its graceful, concrete-domed colonnade which lead visitors diagonally to the Bathhouse. The Hotel was designed by William Cody and was originally a three-story, flat-roofed modernist rectangular block. Two stories were added later.

The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians who own the property, have announced plans to demolish the Spa bathhouse and hotel in its entirety. Given the unique nature of the tribe’s autonomous status as a sovereign nation within the City of Palm Springs, our preservation efforts are focused on working with them to find a viable preservation solution.
