This Ace is similar in style architecturally to Ace Portlandin terms of vintage style, laid back room decor, and great location. However, on the weekends in turns into a desert scene for young (think barely 22) year old hip LA crowd. So if squeezing into a dance club pool skip. The second quiet pool was closed both weekends I was...

Hi Kathy W, Thank you for your review and for staying with us! Our main pool can be quite lively at times but not all the time. I'm glad you found our second pool and were able to relax there. Please come and see us again soon! Oh, and glad you enjoyed the food in King's Highway and that amazing...

For a weekend getaway - the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs needs to make your list of travel destinations ANY time of the year. So here's the story: The rain was a bummer. I asked myself, "What's a warm and fun place to visit this weekend?" Minutes later I was online looking at places to stay and things to do...

Pros: Busy, fun vibe around the pool on Saturday. We had a patio room with a fireplace and it was awesome to have our own little private space that was still close to the pool action. Room 207 was perfect! Also, the food was good (nice cappuccinos in the morning, yummy chicken sandwich at King's Highway diner, good chips and...

Hi Cacillas, Thank you for reviewing our hotel. Sounds like you were very happy with some things and not so happy with the charges. We get that. Some of those charges are unavoidable but especially because you did not get to park on the property one of the nights we would love to help you out with that resort fee....

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon in the U.S. The location was gorgeous, set against the desert backdrop. I cannot imagine how beautiful it would have been in summer. The hotel had many beautiful areas for instagram worthy shots. Also, they were very kind to upgrade us to a suite on the 2nd floor for...

Stayed there for the start of spring break with my husband and 16 year old daughter. On the positive side we loved the desert flora in the common areas between the various buildings. The desert was blooming remarkably following an unusually wet winter, and the tree-lined walkways with the mountains in the background, were pretty. 2 story Hotel-room blocks each...

Hi myrabbitknows, Glad you enjoyed a lot about our hotel but sorry you felt we try too hard to be hip! What we try to do is be welcoming to all people and to be kind and genuine to everyone. It's true, our rates are definitely higher in our busier months when we sell out. A good time to enjoy...

My boyfriend and I are huge fans of anything that the Ace Hotel does, but this time they truly went above and beyond! We had a group of about 12 staying there to celebrate my 30th birthday last weekend. Not only were we surprised with a bottle of champagne upon entering our room, but they even went out of their...

Needed a place close to the airport with a restaurant at the last minute this was available and I am glad I picked it. Bed was comfortable rooms are interesting. Restaurant was great with good pours on the wine. I had the salmon. Bar looked fun but had a 6AM flight. Free scooters and bikes for your use. Some rooms...

We recently stayed at the Ace for a friends 40th birthday and the service we received was outstanding. I've never stayed at an Ace before although I do frequent their restaurants/bars in other cities and I have to say that I was truly impressed. The rooms definitely have that hipster vibe but they are well appointed and comfortable. The *only*...

I like and respect the ACE brand and what they represent. Unfortunately, after my stay in Palm Springs I like it a little less. It felt more like a spring break camping trip or an old motel than a modern hip resort. The room was dump, smelly, stuffy, badly lit (no windows!), badly ventilated. The bed was basically a mattress...

Hi DareToLive, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on Trip Advisor. Though negative reviews are tough to read, they do allow us the opportunity to review all comments and see where we can focus on improvements. Ace Palm Springs is a reinvented 60’s motor lodge. While we have polished it up a bit, the campground feel,...
