HSPB-10: Oasis Hotel
Feb 9, 2006 - 08:11 AMLatest in a series - photo of plaque #10, located at 121 South Palm Canyon:
The Oasis Hotel, constructed 1923-25, contained approximately 20 units and included the Tower Building, the only three-story hotel building in Palm Springs for many years.
The 40-foot tower, with its pyramidal roof, provided access to the upper-story rooms and a roof-top terrace. The topmost room was called "Loretta Young's Room", because it was her favorite in Palm Springs.
The Moderne/Art Deco-style hotel was designed by Lloyd Wright, the son of Frank Lloyd Wright, and constructed of solid concrete using a technique which was quite advanced for that time.
The McCallum Adobe, once located on this site, has been moved to the Village Green.
