They found a neglected treasure – a midcentury desert modern former Westward Ho with a Denny’s. The dusted it off, gave it some love and made it into Ace Hotel & Swim Club. This 179 –room hotel and spa is within biking distance downtown and close to cool stuff like all kinds of historic desert modern architecture and tons of great vintage shopping. It’s also the best place in Palm Springs to get a laid-back massage at the Feel Good Spa.
The Ace Hotel Palm Springs has two big pools, a vintage photo booth, room service, WI-FI and a gym round out the basics. Bring your kids, bring your dog because they are family and pet-friendly.
There is a big event space by the pool at the Ace where you can get married, throw a party or have a big-deal meeting. The design is organic and bohemian. Some rooms have a garden patio or a fireplace. Some have record players and old vinyl you can play in your room and take home with for a few bones. There are also communal fireplaces located throughout the hotel and minibars with really addictive caramel popcorn.
They collaborated with friends to curate amazing music for the lobby and poolside. On weekends there’s a DJ scene at the pool. Almost every night there’s something going on at the amigo room bar – live music, DJs, bingo, crafting, karaoke and the occasional special event like our annual Craft Beer Fest. It’s open late, so join the party whenever.
There’s always something happening at the Ace Hotel & Swim club in Palm Springs.
