If you’ve fallen slightly out of love with mid-century style, these mid-century hotels are sure to change your mind and conquer your heart once again.
The Durham Hotel, Los Angeles
This hotel in Los Angels realls brings back the retro feel, not only in its interior but exterior as well, reminding us of the movie theaters of the mid-century era. This 53-room hotel makes the most of geometric patterns and a palette of primary colors to really channel the mid-century aesthetics in all its glory. The building was constructed in the 1960s, originally housing a bank, and it’s now the incredible Durham Hotel, open since 2015.
Hotel Valley Ho, Arizona
Scottsdale became the go-to gateaway for Hollywood’s elite and Hotel Valley Ho is the one that welcomes them with the charm of the mid-century modern style. The 1956 haunt was designed by Edward L. Varney, a student of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and many of its original elements remain today. This is definitely one of the best ways to experience the joyful, colorful and playful mid-century style.
Monkey Tree Hotel, Palm Springs
Of course we had to include a mid-century hotel in Palm Springs. In fact, you can’t spell mid-century style without Palm Springs, one of the most iconic locations for the American mid-century. Architect Albert Frey, the king of desert modernism, designed this historic hotel in 1960 and in 2015 the now owners of Monkey Tree bought the property, having left many of the original design elements untouched. Legends like Lucille Ball, Marilyn Monroe, and Gene Wilder chose Monkey Tree for accommodations, and now it’s still a celebrity hotspot.

For a surf-inspired version of the midcentury-modern movement, head to the Surfjack in Waikiki, Hawaii. The building was constructed in 1961 for another project by Hawaii architect and hotelier Roy Kelley, but this hotel only opened in 2016. Ceilings, koa-wood furniture with a clear mid-century inspiration, and vintage postcards, are what you’ll find at Surfjack Hotel.
