Same rooms, nicer pool and louder music. Restaurant below average above average prices substandard quality. Love their Karoke but hotel security lacks and wrong kinds of people are attracted here. Always a fight or threat of one. Surprised they can get and maintain help. Especially the Karoke folks as they are so good. Drinks very high, as is the food.... More

I could live at the Ace Hotel, it's my second stay here and I was so glad to find absolutely nothing had changed- it is still awesome. I get that it's not to everybody's taste, it's not luxury and it's very laid back in terms of service and vibe-but that's exactly what I look for in a break. It was... More

As part of our Californian road trip, we stopped of at ACE hotel for a couple of nights and I really wish it had been longer. As a 16 year old girl, this hotel was the embodiment of cool and I spent the whole time dreaming of coming back in a few years with my friends. The interior was exactly... More

First the obvious: The Ace in Palm Springs is a beautiful hotel. It's styled within an inch of its life, has a reputation for great parties, and seems like it should be a fun backdrop for any getaway. I came here for a getaway weekend with +25 friends, and while the setting was beautiful and there are individual staff members... More

Cool place but definitely not luxury. Rather odd, retro interior and relaxed atmosphere. Simple and large (but cheap) suite and great pool. Very good food in their diner restaurant where we had lunch and breakfast. Good drinks service around the pool. More of a place for young people and parties, but fine for a family, at least during the week... More

Been here several times over the years and it's almost like I'm not cool enough to come to this hipster vibe hotel, but my dog can come too, even by the pool with me. The only thing I wish that there was a door on the shower. The beds are low to the ground and the patios have couched sand... More

Went to check out the Ace Hotel for a venue for daughter's wedding. Having never been to Palm Springs before, it was just as I had imagined. A former Howard Johnsons gone hippie, dorm room retro! Everything was just fun. The rooms, the restaurant had great healthy food, the pool was cool and the bar was an absolute grotto. What... More

Seriously, can these guys come to Australia and style my house? Amazing. Desert Hipster perfection. Great attention to detail. These guys know their market - stayed with Ace in LA on this same trip, equally as amazing but completely different - Downtown LA Hipster perfection. Haha :) Clean and comfortable.

Palm Springs is full or retro glory - still trying to push somewhere trendy. So this is where the ACE Hotel fits! At first this place felt way too hipster, then all the small details fell into place, and this effort was well appreciated, and I mean everything was right on trend and bubbling in an over exposed culture!
