Known as the Stouffer Concourse Hotel, the $83-million, 750-room project is the 24th hotel in the Stouffer chain. It is also the company's first in the West, although others are planned.

The stars were out, decked in jewels and tuxedos. Singers Julio Iglesias and Leslie Uggams, actors Alexis Smith and Ernest Borgnine--all came to support what has become a favorite Hollywood cause: the Betty Ford Center at Rancho Mirage. "How could I not support this? It saved my life," said producer/manager Jeff Wald, who snuffed out a cocaine habit last spring at the drug rehabilitation center. But the stars weren't the only ones who turned out for the benefit dinner Saturday night.

The prospect baffles Jamul real estate broker Ken Rupe: that in a couple of years, tourists from New York, Chicago or Detroit--or even Los Angeles--might seek out Jamul, of all places, for a resort-style golf vacation. C'mon. Jamul? La Costa, maybe, or Mission Bay. But Jamul? "We're on a two-lane highway that doesn't go anywhere. If you're up to your kazoo in snow, are you going to want to come back to some laid-back, redneck community like ours?" he asks.

Oil heiress Caroline Rose Hunt was stunned, the story goes, when she got four offers in April for her 92-room Hotel Bel-Air at more than $1 million a room. Never before had a hotel in the United States sold at the $1-million-a-room mark, and Hunt thought her 1940s landmark was only worth in the $600,000-a-room range, said Chris Leinberger of Robert Charles Lesser & Co., a Los Angeles-based real estate consulting firm. A Tokyo company, Sekitei Kaihatsu, closed escrow in late May at a total purchase price of about $110 million, or $1.1 million a room.
