A Palm Springs Must Stay: Ace Hotel & Swim Club
"We found a neglected treasure — a mid-century desert modern former Westward Ho with a Denny’s — dusted it off, gave it some love and made it into Ace Hotel & Swim Club."
Nestled in the heart of Palm Springs California, the Ace Hotel & Swim Club is the perfect desert place to stay, relax, and enjoy everything that the desert has to offer. The 173 room hotel, space and resort is within walking distance of downtown Palm Springs, and close to Joshua Tree National Park, the Salton Sea and Indian Canyons. Taking inspirations from its desert landscape, the rooms incorporate earth-friendly and sustainable elements, like recycled materials, low VOC paints and vintage furniture. The design is organic and bohemian with some rooms having record players and vintage vinyls to play.
Aside from being a great place to stay and relax, the Ace Hotel & Swim Club offers a wide variety of services perfect for weddings, events, and everything in between. The Commune is a modern space that opens onto a small outdoor amphitheater and pool which is perfect for things like film screening and family gatherings. Their Stargazing Deck is perfect for meetings or small receptions. The Clubhouse is their brand new double-decker events space. This space is a flexible space perfectly suited for business meetings, private receptions, weddings, social gatherings, and much more. The Ace Hotel & Swim Club has made it easy for everyone to visit and enjoy their space.
What used to be an old Denny's Restaurant, the Ace Hotel's King's Highway is the on-site restaurant that offers a variety of options for dining and drinking and an elevated take on road side diner. The space celebrates its retro style with terrazzo flooring and saddle leather booths. The menu draws inspiration from California's seasonal bounty, using the best ingredients possible and featuring as many local, sustainable, organic, and nonGMO products they can get their hands on.
