I've stayed at the Ace many times, and each time I do I meet a bunch of cool fun people. The pool is always a fun scene, and a great place to drink some beers and listen to music while you swim and sun. The rooms are cozy and well styled and and the beds and the sheets are super... More

...but still enjoyable. A good steam cleaning, and replacement of the sunscreens poolside would do wonders. The staff is still the friendliest group of folks and very attentive. Very chill here. Yes it might seem pretentious but that's just you thinking that it's pretentious. No one really cares what your deal is. Relax and try to blend in. No tattoos... More

As a 44 year old mum travelling as a family of four I have to admit I was apprehensive about staying here. So much so I telephoned twice to make sure we had rooms away from the party scene noise which I had read about. This was the last part of an expensive road trip holiday through California and we...

Stayed for a short break, thinking it may be too cool for school, however the staff were so friendly and easy to talk to and helpful, the diner was serving amazing American/Spanish/Mexican fusion foods, and the pool was a welcome relief from the heat.

We love the ACE Hotel and Swim Club and stay there each time we visit Palm Springs... Here's why: 1) Cool, club vibe at the pool areas, 2) Great, comfortable rooms with patios, 3) Dog-friendly, 4) Great location, 5) Funky (albeit hipster) clientele, 6) Always good service and amenities. We are definitely fans of ACE.

This was my second trip to the Ace and it definitely won't be the last. My friend and I decided to do a weekend trip to get away from LA/OC life and lounge by the pool. We had an amazing time except for slow service of drinks and food at the pool by our waitress. We eventually had to resort... More

My daughter was staying here for her 21st birthday for a few days this week. She had booked: we are from England and all we wanted to do is pay for her room. They insisted that we send them (a) a signed and scanned authorisation form, (b) a scanned copy of my credit card, and (c) a scanned copy of... More

and that's a good thing. They've preserved the layout of an old Westward Ho/Howard Johnson's - ixnayed the motel style parking and turned it into wonderful grounds with outdoor seating, fire places, lounge areas, and racks of loaner bikes and cafe tables. The pool, now salt water, and the jacuzzi are oversized, and the whole hotel is just fun. I'm... More
