Marker Details

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. HSPB-10. This plaque sponsored by Nathan W. & Bernadette K. Cohen.
