    My friend and I loved our stay here for a couple of nights - nice crowd, chilled atmosphere with a cool bar and pool area for day and night. The rooms were traditional motel on the outside but hipster fun on the inside with everything you'd need for a great stay. Staff we helpful. Nice coffee shop right across the road too. Easy drive into town centre, plenty of parking.

    Ace Hotel and Swim Club

    Pros: Character and location
    Cons: The cost of visiting California.... Everything is about 30% higher in cost than in Arizona.
    Location: We also ate at nearby Elmer's that I do not recommend (blah-blah food and slow service).
    At the front desk, Abe was great and insured that everything was in order for our stay. The room was cozy and we had an outside patio with a gas fire place that was very nice but beware that the in-room refrigerator and other items to drink and eat from the room bar are outrageously expensive (no price guide was available in our room). The hotel grounds were well maintained and the pool area is expansive so bring a swim suit but as Palm Springs goes, this hotel is older and does not have a large 'wow' factor. We ate at the hotel restaurant two times during our stay and the food was good. The hotel is located south of downtown and the other hot spots were easy to get to.

    Not like the DTLA Ace

    1 out of 5
    Posted Jan 9, 2017
    Pros: Adam, who was part of the great staff.
    Although the staff was extraordinary and accomdiating, the hotel is in desperate need of an overhall. It appeared that the linen hadnt been changed from the previous guests and the bathroom looked like it needed a steam cleaning with lots of bleach! Although the Ace isnt known for their value, we feel that it was outrageous what we were charged for this filfthy, tina and inconvienient room. The staff said that theres a plan to renovate this year.

    We miss the splendor of the ACE from 3-5 years ago

    We'd been coming to the ACE once or twice a year for the past 5 years and we are quite sad with what it's become. Sadly, our shower was really gross. The white subway tile and grout had tons of mold and mildew built up and it wasn't a pleasant situation for showers. While there were 'No Smoking' signs up at the pool, lounge, and breakfast area-- people were constantly smoking. We never saw anyone from hotel staff, waiters, or security say anything to the many guests smoking in the pool, in the lounge area, or in the outdoor breakfast area. Super inappropriate for the families with children and expecting mothers we saw during our visit. Big bummer.

    Hang with the cool kids at The ACE !!!

    Pros: The grounds. The pool. The way they bring in live music to perform! Bikes to ride around the hood.
    Amazing all around!! This is the place to stay in Palm Springs if you want to hang with the cool kids. It has just the right balance of quiet and action. I highly recommend this place. It's kid friendly, dog friendly and pretty much all people friendly. Super hip and attentive staff from the front of the house to the people behind the scene. I will be back for more. THANK YOU ACE HOTEL AND SWIM CLUB
