Steve and Mark Hermann Help Reinvent Palm Springs Iconic Resorts

Known as the “Capital of Cool,” Palm Springs has become synonymous with a sexy retro vibe that can be seen in stylish digs, open air lounges, poolside soirees, and scores of annual celebrations. Early modernist architects created a seamless indoor/outdoor lifestyle that has become a defining characteristic of Palm Springs. We celebrate our mid-century design and desert modern style every year during Modernism Week each February. Now the Hermann brothers have brought their style to Palm Springs to contribute to the retro, yet modern design, with two iconic resorts; L’Horizon Palm Springs and The Weekend resort.

Steve Hermann

Steve Hermann, an L.A. based designer and luxury-hotel devotee began his journey in Palm Springs with the purchase of the 1952 property L’ Horizon, built by legendary architect William F. Cody for Jack Wrather, a producer of Lassie and The Lone Ranger. After a $5 million retrofit, the 25 rooms set in original white bungalows reopened in 2015, largely with the concept of a large home feel. No two rooms are the same, mixing collectible vintage and new modern pieces, sweeping walls of glass and original artwork. With Frette robes, 600-thread count bedding, Le Labo bath product and Dean & DeLuca minibar goodies, this resort is unique and highly awarded.

Mark Hermann

Now enter Steve’s brother, Mark Hermann, who recently purchased and opened another iconic mid-century modern boutique luxury hotel called “The Weekend” resort. This newly renovated 10-suite resort is located in the Uptown Design district.  Just a block from the prestigious Old Las Palmas neighborhood, it has undergone a multimillion renovation. While rooted in Palm Spring’s signature mid-century style, it offers a modern and timeless space. Villas come in one or two bedrooms with spacious living rooms and private patios. Amenities include Frette linens, L’Occitane toiletries, rain showers, and multiple Smart TV’s per suite. “What people really love is the space and attention to detail,” says owner Mark.
