It’s great to see Palm Springs is so often in the national news. Today I’m writing about our still relatively new Ace Hotel and Swim Club, because it’s featured in the December 2010 Food and Wine issue in their Where to Go — BEST OF THE YEAR section.
The Ace design style is somewhat quirky, with industrial materials used in the decor, and many of the furnishings are vintage mid-century. They offer many creature comforts such as body care products and luxury soaps. They allow dogs, a definite plus. Ace can reserve for you at nearby riding stables, rent you a scooter and much more. This all spells fun!
Their great pool is a rarity – it’s deep! And parked pool-side you’ll find an adorable retro mini-trailer which offers snacks, including alcohol-spiked snow cones. In the evenings, guests can request the fire pits be lit along with a buffet of fish tacos. Yes, fish tacos here in the desert! People are loving the pool-side dining, featuring flavorful Mexican fare. Food and Wine also recommends Ace’s hip diner, King’s Highway. Another fun and popular feature is the luxury of pool-side massages in the yurts.
Sometimes Ace offers special events to coincide with events happening in Palm Springs such as our International Film Festival (in January). The parking lots at Ace are packed every weekend. Check them out at Ace Hotel.
