I have fantasies about this place.

Great to go with some friends - chill out, eat food, & relax with *great* music and beautifully designed, well-appointed rooms.

Fresh Mexican/BBQ inspired menu.
Fun, friendly servers that clearly enjoy their jobs.
Great music everywhere you turn.
Get the room-delivered prepared BBQ with your crew - loads of fun + good eats.

The gym/spa area is a bit of an after-thought and sort off odd to use, but you're in the desert - it's a beautiful place for some outdoor exercise/yoga.

Definitely the most successful ACE property.
LOVE this place.

Room Tip: It's worth the few extra bucks for the private patio suites!

All inclusive hipster party paradise. Poolside cocktails and people watching (ogling) galore. Comfy beds, dangerous minibar. Sweet communal fireplaces outside - perfect for a picnic of room service. The bar is cozy, but they blast the music too loud and last time I went they did not know how to make a sazurac. The food is okay (not bad, not mind blowing) and they over-charge for it, but what do you expect? The hostess of the restaurant is a relic and if you are lucky she will serenade you while you eat which is so awesome. They have tons of bikes you can borrow to cruise around the mid-Century modern neighborhoods (the tires are all flat and they have back pedal brakes, but once you get past that they're fine for the purpose of neighborhood cruising just be careful if you have had one too many poolside bevys). It seems like an especially fun place for hipsters with kids - something for the whole family. Basically you have to be in the mood for this place. If you want a quiet, budget gettaway this is not for you.

Ace Hotel is a really great place to enjoy the beauty and relaxation of Palm Springs! The rooms are fun, the pool area is relaxing (and they play really good music!), and their bar/restaurant have a unique selection, and it is more than your average hotel bar/restaurant. Also, I love that they're dog friendly (be sure to mention that when booking though, since only certain rooms allow dogs). My dog had a great time! The rooms with the fireplace are especially nice and cozy.

Also, you can rent bikes for free! Ride around town for a fun way to see the area!

An effortlessly cool hotel with an enormously fun pool experience and easy social ambience. The hotel has a beautifully executed laid back retro feel. The restaurant is good and serves a great breakfast. The best times are had lounging around the pool. There is a gym too which is reasonably well equipped with treadmills, stationary bikes, a free weight section and a couple of isolation training machines. While arguably on the expensive side the ACE provides what I would call a quintessential Palm Springs experience with a mid century modern twist. Well worth a weekend break.

Room Tip: Try a room with private patio and fire place. Palm Springs is best visited in winter, fall or spring...

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and didn't have a great start. During check-in we waited for at least 2 hrs before getting the room. As they have just finished cleaning, the room smells of chemical products. We just open the doors and windows to let the smell out.
The foods in the restaurant is ok, the breakfast is better than lunch though.
The pool is a decent size and has a spa next to it.
Don't expect any valet people to park the car. You have to park the car yourself.
When we checked out there was a power cut so they have to sent out the invoice via email.
The good thing here is the wifi as its has a very strong single throughout the hotel area.
Overall for my experience, I will look for other hotels around the area.
