My boyfriend and I stopped by to have dinner at the restaurant. We had been there once before after it had just opened, and it was a fun place, with ok food. This time the experience was so ridiculous that I could hardly believe it. The hostess/waitress with a long blonde braid was the rudest person I have ever encountered...

Wow. Very sorry. That's not how we do things. We've shared your feedback with the team......and hope you'll come back to have a very different experience.

This is by far my most favorite hotel. Ever. That's saying a lot, but it's a bit of a first love situation... I started going to Palm Springs with my boyfriend and this was the first place we stayed and immediately fell in love. I've since stayed in houses and other hotels, but nothing beats the simple, beautiful white buildings...

We have to admit that this place is different and interesting - but there's a lot that isn't so great. Everything seems to be beat up and not very clean for one thing. Someone had left a room service tray outside our room before we checked in and it was still there the next afternoon. No one came to make...

Like most of the reviews say, this is where the hipsters of LA come to vacation. For $300/night, the rooms were VERY disappointing. I felt dirty. When we check in we were told we were 'upgraded' to a poolside room. I was so happy to hear this. Well, this was obviously a sales technique that I guess she thought we...

I haven't actually stayed here (yet), so this review is for the pool & food. I always come here around Coachella time so the pool can get pretty packed on the weekends, but nothing too extreme. On weekdays, though, its much more manageable. View: The view of the desert mountains from the pool is really beautiful since the hotel is...

I stayed here with friends for three nights in February and had a fantastic time! We arrived late one Monday night and were immediately (and not exactly reluctantly!) roped into a game of bingo in the restaurant… why not?! You could argue the Ace is so hipster it hurts, but actually we found it to be a really friendly and...

I stayed here for two nights and while it was loud one of the nights, it was a fun place to stay. The staff are super nice and helpful and the pool is great. If you're concerned about it being loud, avoid the weekend. Weekdays have a great chill California vibe. I'd definitely stay again.

We came to the property for a wedding. Let me start by saying that we are NOT hipsters. We are crunchy easterners with a child under the age of 1 who traveled with us. We were fully prepared to find ourselves wildly out of place and annoyed by the self-proclaimed hip-ness. We loved the Ace, and, I would say it's...

I can get beyond all of the hipster trying too hard but the thumping bass pool parties ALL DAY just feet from my room is too much. If you are looking for a relaxing hotel, avoid this place at all costs. It's incredibly loud with spartan rooms and not relaxing at all.

Went in February to escape the winter in the East and it was amazing. Great staff, clean and simple rooms. Great outdoor fireplaces. The pool is a fun scene if a little noisy on the weekend. Easy drive-up parking. Food at the restaurant and pool is good.
