Ace Hotel dynasty... But if you are, you have some homework to do. The mindful, smartly designed and accessible American hotel group has changed the reality of urban travel for Seattle, Portland, and New York - and with the addition of Palm Springs, the get-away vacation.
The Ace Hotel & Swim Club occupies a sprawling 1965 Howard Johnson motor hotel and resurrects its late mid-century vintage spirit as a stylistic springboard. Combining desert chic, modern simplicity, and a sense of adventure and rustic luxury, the Ace is immediately comfortable and challengingly familiar.
Stumptown coffee (a unicorn find for CA), a handy to-go counter for in-room dining, and poolside service, your snacking needs are well accounted for.
