The Desert Hot Springs Historical Society met at the Miracle Springs Spa and Resort for its quarterly soup supper on Thursday, Oct. 25. Guest speakers were Tracy Beckman and Ryan Trowbridge, who told the story of their restoration of Hotel Lautner. Trowbridge is an artist who with his friend, Scot Brown, design and build high end metal furniture for restaurants and hotels primarily in LA and New York.
Beckman has her own interior design firm, Tracy Beckman Design. They both have won numerous awards in their respective fields, and the Hotel Lautner has been written up in many publications. Guests come from around the world to enjoy a most unique and special experience in this hotel and spa, which has been ranked in the top five of the United States.
