Ace Hotel and Swim Club is built on the foundation of a 1965 Howard Johnson hotel and the property has been revamped to maintain the 1960s era charm. Funky, edgy decor creates a distinctive look, and rooms combine well-worn leather couches with luxurious bedding, expertly melding gritty, 60s-type furnishings with modern amenities. Just south of downtown Palm Springs and close to the mountains, Ace Hotel and Swim Club gives a nod toward the coolness of the past, in a contemporary setting.
Rooms

Ace Hotel and Swim Club rooms boast eye-catching, distinctive details. Screens around the beds feature 1960s-era photos tacked up with binder clips. Chairs seem rescued from old schoolhouses or offices. Canvas drapes are pinned back to reveal patio spaces, giving rooms the feel of a safari tent. The effect is a charming, retro atmosphere that feels comfortable and welcoming. Suites offer separate living areas and some feature vinyl record players in the room.

Property features

Ace Hotel and Swim Club features an old, restored diner called King's Highway that offers traditional American favorites. Chefs use local, seasonal and organic ingredients whenever possible and the meats are sustainably raised.

Guests can also borrow one of the hotel's Weber grills for a room's private patio or terrace. The hotel offers communal outdoor hearths if guests want to mingle and make new friends while preparing their outdoor feasts.

 

The Feel Good Spa at Ace Hotel and Swim Club provides simple, practical treatments geared toward boosting health and relaxation while treating the senses to a luxurious experience. The spa focuses on using natural, organic ingredients and offers purifying clay masks, body scrubs, hot stone massage, deep tissue massage, cooling skin treatments and facials. The extensive pool area offers another opportunity to relax and recharge.

 

Ace Hotel and Swim Club is close to numerous activities in the area. The Smoke Tree Stables offers horseback riding by the hour, while Indian Canyons Golf boasts two semi-private, championship courses. Also close is the Palm Springs Tennis Club.

Dining

King's Highway Restaurant
We took the old Denny's restaurant on the property and unearthed a cool terrazzo floor, sandblasted the flagstone walls and recovered the booths in saddle leather. The food redefines roadside diner fare as part of an American peasant food tradition-rustic, direct, resourceful, sensuous, and social. The focus will be on fresh, organic, and local ingredients that expand the stereotypical view of Palm Springs to create a regional cuisine grounded in a sense of place. We understand that food is first and foremost a series of relationships not only in the eating but in the preparing and the sourcing. We believe that cooking should always be inspired but never pretentious and that food should be accessible but not ordinary. In feeling, we imagine this experience like the most amazing backyard barbeque you've ever been to.

Great and unique experience, as usual

I've been going to Palm Springs since I was born. My parents went together for years before. I've stayed at many hotels there. The Ace maintains the essence of what remains of Palm Springs traditionally special experience, and of course it brings the out-of-the-box element that I'd enjoyed in Portland. Great and unique combination.

Great Pool

The Ace is well thought out. But the best part is the pool. Lots of young beautiful people sitting by the water sipping cocktails, kind of a real life music video... Enjoy.

Great instant getaway

I love escaping here for a day or two with my boyfriend. It's just a easy brainless getaway. The drinks are delicious if you order doubles and the rooms are decorated comfortably although it look s like Urban Outfitters threw up all over it. It's a kitschy hipster place with very chill vibes. A bonus is they allow dogs! Which saves a lot of headache when you just want to leave town last minute. The pool is great, the diner is cute, and the photo booth they have in the lobby doesn't suck either. It's not the cheapest place but I like the atmosphere and over all esthetic.

Love this place!

I really enjoyed the stay. It was close to downtown but still had to drive down there. I would totally recommend this hotel, it's totally modernized. Lots of hipsters FYI.

Funky hipster vibe

I've been here before and I'll be back. Especially when there is a deal. The hotel has a super cool vibe--lots of great details from vintage signs to record players and vinyl albums in the rooms. It's super sexy and perfect for a romantic weekend. The pools give you a choice--fun party pool or chill place to hang out. Have a massage on your patio, or hit the spa. It's pretty good value for the money. Close enough to downtown to head in for dinner or nightlife (it's a short bike ride) but far enough away to give you privacy and seclusion.
