The Ace Hotel is a total gem! The Ace is full of good design, fun, and cool people. It's clean and the rooms are nice. I would highly recommend this place for a quick getaway weekend to Palm Springs!

The Ace has a really nice sense of retro-style, if you like mid-century. If you're looking for a Holiday Inn, this ain't your place; if you like something more hipster you'll love the Ace.

The pools are nice, and the place lives us to the "Swim Club" part of the name. The staff is really friendly; not always the most polished hotel professionals but very personable and helpful. Rooms vary quite a bit, with some having outdoor fire places and the second floor suites having doors on both sides and a resultant cross-breeze.

On the dog side, the outdoor off-leash area is really tiny, but large enough for a small dog to play in or a large dog to do it's business. The staff is friendly with the dogs, and the neighborhood has good streets for dog-walking.

Overall, the value for the money is really high - it's the place my wife and I prefer in Palm Springs with dogs and without.

Ace is like summer camp-Good and bad
the rooms need a good scrubbing-yucky bed spreads
But are comfortable and have many amenities - a well stocked mini bar- tv- robe
There are 2 pools - a DJ - and lots of skin -
I like that I can order drinks and food poolside -
Liked the breakfast best -And big French press coffee
Pot -
It has everything - including noise -
Great grounds and easy to walk around the local area -
The check in and out needs some help - it takes forever
Overall a fun place but not for everyone -
Party atmosphere - not quiet solitude -
Please drop the "Spa Fee". That is Not Cool

Room Tip: Away from main pool

When we rolled up, I was skeptical. Beautiful design, but I thought I was about to be the biggest nerd at Hipster Summer Camp. However, I found that despite trendy appearances, The Ace has a lot of sincerity. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were super comfortable, and the bar scene was energetic, without being too crazy. Plus, they have fun activities - Monday night Bingo was a blast!

Unlike some other reviewers, I didn't have any trouble with the noise, but to be fair, my room was a little bit of a walk from the main pool area. Conversely, the daytime scene is incredibly laid back and relaxing. I spent a quiet afternoon by one of the smaller pools, while my friend got some treatments at the spa.

This place is great if you're traveling with friends or a significant other. Works best for laid-back people who aren't running on a tight schedule, as you'll want time to take advantage of the many amenities. Definitely not recommended for families with kids.

Room Tip: If you're worried about noise, ask for a room away from the main pool. Also, consider upgrading...

I have never stayed over night at the hotel but use the restaurant, bar and pool several times.
The food: truly inconsistent from ok to poor
The drinks: hit or miss, some drinks arrived with basically no alcohol in it and very poorly mix.
The pool: when you charge admission for swimming, You would think 86 / 87 degree is what you would expect like most small hotel in Palm Springs but not at the ACE.
If you go:
I believe they have an "happy hour" order a pepsi and cruise around....The rest will be a waste.
