“Amazing stay in Palm Springs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

First time in Palm Springs and this was a perfect hotel. Overall room concept was a bit odd - but it works. And you're in Palm Springs - who is spending much time in the room anyway. Great pool and pool scene. Largest jacuzzi I've ever seen - and perfect temperature on those chilly nights. Don't understand the odd sun shades - but overall a unique experience in PS.

It's got a cool retro vibe - built in an old Howard Johnson. Rooms are nice and well appointed, really comfy bed. The only issue is it is JAM PACKED with loud partying hipsters, has zero chairs at the pool after 10 AM, wifi was down and it is pretty expensive for Palm Springs. If you want that scene you'll love it. I'm stuck in my swimsuit reading in my room...

Our bedroom looked nice, and fortunately it was far away from the pool, because we might have not slept at all otherwise.
Clients are over 35 year old springbreakers, putting a lot of sunscreen sitting smoking and drinking beer in the pool.
Music is super loud at the pool in the afternoon and evening.
I dont even understand why they have a spa next to the pool.
If you dont have tatoos, fake boobs and want to get dark oil tan, cross the street and go to another hotel.
Breakfast, interior design and natural setting are great though, it's really sad that the clients do not match this place at all!
At the end, it is really expensive place for what it is, and we were really happy we only prepaid one night! (Weird booking also, they wanted me to give very confidential details, which I refused: watch out if you still want to book a room there)
ACE hotels might be better in the other cities (NYC and Portland), but Palm Springs, really: NO!

fantastic pools. the smaller/quiet one really perfect to do nothing. didnt make it to the other one much as the quiet was appreciated. perfect spot to spend a few days hiding/rejuvenating (and/or partying). fantastic bars. restaurant was good too. great design and detail. dog friendliness was super too.
