Went to check out the Ace Hotel for a venue for daughter's wedding. Having never been to Palm Springs before, it was just as I had imagined. A former Howard Johnsons gone hippie, dorm room retro! Everything was just fun. The rooms, the restaurant had great healthy food, the pool was cool and the bar was an absolute grotto. What...

Seriously, can these guys come to Australia and style my house? Amazing. Desert Hipster perfection. Great attention to detail. These guys know their market - stayed with Ace in LA on this same trip, equally as amazing but completely different - Downtown LA Hipster perfection. Haha :) Clean and comfortable. Stayed just one night as part of a road trip....

Palm Springs is full or retro glory - still trying to push somewhere trendy. So this is where the ACE Hotel fits! At first this place felt way too hipster, then all the small details fell into place, and this effort was well appreciated, and I mean everything was right on trend and bubbling in an over exposed culture! I...

Ace looks great. Very hip design, and pet friendly. However, the beds are futons on a concrete floor, and the bed covers are made of stiff scratchy denim. Not comfortable. The pool is lovely, but open to the public, and overcrowded. Food in the cafe was good. It could be perfect If the pool was private, and beds comfortable. I...

We stayed at one of the rooms with outdoor fireplace/patio. The room was very kitschy, no drawers just hooks on wall. The curtains didn't block the morning light, we were up by 8a because the room got so hot. The bathroom was home to quite a few cockroaches that were never removed. Two dead cockroaches in corner of bathroom were...

Very sorry you had that experience. Not typical at all.......and while we are in the desert.....we seldom (if ever) have issues with insects. Do hope you'll consider another visit......as we have many exciting changes in the works. We value your business and take all feedback to heart.

This was the first trip for me to California. Our conference was booked at the ACE, which is a vintage hotel that has some unusual and fantastic upgrades like no hotel you have every stayed. All I had to do was walk into my room, and I knew I was in heaven. I had the best nights sleep on their...

This hotel has a great vibe! Lots of energy and great people. The service is prompt and all the good on sight is outstanding! It's a younger crowd so know that ahead of time...the weekend pool partys are fun but go on through the night so can be a little loud if you're not prepared for them! Rooms are very...
