When in California, we had a wonderful time at the Ace Hotel and Swim Club in Palm Springs. We especially enjoyed the little patio with fireplace that came with our room, the complimentary bikes we rented the next day to explore Palm Springs and the fun bar that was hosting trivia night when we were there. Everyone at the Ace Hotel was super friendly and the design of the site was almost as beautiful as the mountains and palm trees that serve as its backdrop. Also, the location is perfect if you want to explore all the modernist houses in Palm Springs and the iconic Moorten Botanical Garden.
Adjacent to the Ace Hotel is a restaurant, the King’s Highway where you can have dinner – be sure to make a reservation – and breakfast. You can also get room service from the restaurant, however. Since we had this cute patio, we opted for the latter and enjoyed some decent food and wine in front of “our” fireplace.
The “Swim Club”, though…
The only thing I found a little disappointing about the Ace Hotel and Swim Club was the main pool area. It felt a tad old-fashioned and not super inviting. It sounds a bit ironic as they advertise their “Swim Club” in their name even and maybe we are just very spoilt by places like the Hôtel Les Roches Rouges in Southern France. Anyway, as we only stayed at the Ace for one night and had not planned to spend heaps of time by the pool, in the end, this was no big deal. But, if you want to stay in Palm Springs a little longer and enjoy some leisure time by the pool and are as spoilt as we are, maybe check out some other places.
