Had an amazing time at the Ace Palm Springs over Christmas. The hotel offers a very trendy and unique spin on any other place I've ever stayed. I would highly recommend it if you're looking for a hipster inspired place to relax with a really cool clientele.

This is a really difficult review to make. The Ace hotel and swim club is a magical hotel. The grounds with the couches and fireplaces and string lights strewn around are so atmospheric and wonderful. The pool areas are great and we were luckily staying through a relatively quiet period so no crazy parties to manoeuvre. Spent hours one day...

I really wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone that is not a hipster under 25 years old. Usually my group goes to Vegas every year and our accommodations are amazing. For 2016, my group of geniuses wanted to try Palm Springs because our dollar would go farther and the party scene was supposed to be good....wrong, so wrong. The clubs...

Hi autorennen - Seems like Palm Springs in general wasn't quite a fit -- if you were looking for a Vegas style experience, PS is way more low-key than that. We are in the process of doing a $2M refresh to Ace Palm Springs which will update all the bathrooms, the Spa and our exteriors. Really happy to hear you...

Visited for the 3rd time over the holidays and even though most of the time I was there the hotel and restaurants were extremely busy and at times chaotic, we still had a fantastic time. I will admit I am happy to see some improvements and refreshing being done around the hotel. Pool area looks updated and there was some...

I've stayed at the Ace Hotel in NYC and London and loved both, so when visiting Palm Springs for a quick getaway, it was an easy pick to stay at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club. In typical Ace style, this is a renovation of a far less cool hotel, a Howard Johnson. It's spread out over a pretty big...

Anand - Thank you for your honest feedback. We are in the process of doing a $2M refresh to Ace Palm Springs which will update all the bathrooms, the Spa and our exteriors. While the bathrooms won't be any larger, they will be completely redone and updated. Our apologies for the slow service poolside. Christmas week was unusually busy and...

Great grounds and great amenities. Our stay was Jan 6 to Jan 8 and we lucked out with some sun and no crowds (during the day). The pool was only about 20% full if that, both days. The service was medium. Every single time we ordered something whether from room service or poolside or at the bar, they got it...

The Ace Hotel really lives up to their positive reviews. We stayed at the hotel over for two nights over NYE. The staff was friendly and informative from the moment we checked in. The room was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. We loved the fireplace in our private courtyard. We ate at the restaurant at the hotel twice – excellent...

We had an amazing time ringing in the new year with friends at the Ace. The Ace is THE place to stay in Palm Springs. The hotel is clean and has a very unique aesthetic. We ate and drank at kings highway for multiple meals and it was delicious. We need to return at a warmer time of year to...

The ACE Hotel and Swim Club was amazing! A great place to stay during your trip to Palm Springs. Super expensive! I was able to book the room at a group rate for an event I attended. Otherwise it would've been affordable that weekend. This hotel is exactly how someone would picture 70s, psychedelic, desert culture. The radio in our...
