Verified Reviews of Ace Hotel & Swim Club

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"No hot water but great vibe and quirky."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Great hotel, cool little bar and restaurant, fun poolside vibe on weekends. Staff friendly rooms quirky but comfortable.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from AU flag
21-Jan-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Thu Jan 17 to Sat Jan 19 2019 at a $215.20 average nightly rate.
"Extremely Disappointing Stay Roaches, bad food, terrible service!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
What a terrible experience, right from the beginning! We checked in and were given the wrong keys I went back and had them reprogrammed only to find out we were given the WRONG room (with only one bed when we paid for two) we discovered this AFTER hauling all of our luggage up to the second floor (no elevators here). We had to go back to the desk again and then back to the car and move to the other side of the hotel to the second floor again. They were not apologetic about this, nor did they offer to help with all of our bags after the trouble. Upon checking in, the room was humid and musty. We soon learned that WiFi “doesn't work very well in our building” (the “100” rooms) and by “very well”, they meant NOT AT ALL. If you have any work to do online, or come from another country and need to be online to avoid data charges, this is clearly terrible. Now one of the worst parts THE FOOD. It was DISGUSTING. Terrible. We tried dinner twice and everything we tried was revolting. I'm not that picky, but this over priced swill was on a quality level somewhere below Burger King. It took forever and I can't even believe there are any good reviews of this place. Those people must have been extremely intoxicated when they ate. I 100% believe that. No one cleaned our rooms throughout our three night stay. One cleaner showed up at 7:30am on the third day and we told her we were getting ready for the day and to please come back later we were gone all day and when we came back at 5, the room wasn't clean. We called the front desk and one of the cocky, disinterested hipsters literally told us, “This is the desert you have to ask if you want your room cleaned” what does that even mean? I could understand not replacing towels unless requested to preserve water, but do they not make BEDS or empty GARBAGE in the desert? We then asked for some towels (with a few tiny towels and three people, we needed new ones) and they FORGOT. No apologies for forgetting when we called back after a few hours. After going to the grocery store across the street to get breakfast foods and snacks because the hotel food was so awful, we had garbage that needed to be emptied I have included photos of the pile that was not removed. I paid a fortune to stay in this dump and ended up making our beds myself! Here are the final two horrors my young daughter and I woke up to a ROACH crawling on us at 6:30am (photo included)! I called the front desk immediately and they didn't care they said they'd let housekeeping know and that was that. After finding roaches and not having WiFi for 3.5 days, I demanded they remove the ridiculous “resort fee” from our bill. As we were packing up our stuff to get out of that mess as fast as possible, a cleaner showed up at our door at 7:15am! Was she there to check about the roaches? To apologize for our experience? NO. She opened the door herself and walked right in, to TAKE THE HAIR DRIER OUT OF OUR WASHROOM for another guest. This was a terrible experience that ruined the Palm Springs leg of our vacation. We spent one night at the Saguaro Hotel down the street and even that place was 1,000,000 times better. Do yourself a favour and don't listen to the reviews they're probably fake or made by friends of the owners or staff I travel several times a year and this is the worst experience I've had with a hotel in years.

Property Description

Ace Hotel Palm Springs reinvents and updates the idea of the resort property, broadening the boundaries of the desert oasis. People come here to escape the city and recharge in the tranquility of the desert landscape.


The Ace sensibility appeals to people into imaginative amenities and an authentic cultural context. We have offbeat details like tamale carts and a sno-cone bar, while the property embraces its serene setting via outdoor massages and native plants. Ace is the low card: simple rooms with all the basics. Ace is the high card: large suites with vintage living room furniture and outdoor hearths. King's Highway and the Amigo Room bar serve American peasant food. The Spa offers treatments based on fresh ingredients. Ace Palm Springs is the perfect complement to its urban counterparts in Portland, Seattle, and New York; its laid-back atmosphere embraces a natural and organic design.


DESIGN

Built on the foundation of a 1965 Westward Ho Hotel, Ace Palm Springs maintains functionality and simplicity without sacrificing the renowned Ace aesthetic. Much of the property is an outgrowth of the original five-building structure, from the unearthed terrazzo floors in the restaurant to the rare deep swimming pool from years ago. Just south of downtown, the location allows easy access to everything.


Interiors, a collaboration between Ace and the L.A.-based visual design team Commune, build on the Ace penchant for pure design and honest materials. Commune's collaboration with Atelier Ace transports the guest to an indulgent camping experience. An eclectic assortment of local artists and designers also contributed their talents to create a space with many voices. The grounds expand on this idea of community, with shared outdoor areas like communal fireplaces and patios that invite guests to come together.


PLANTS

Ace embraces the character of the desert and its sensual tranquility. We let the California landscape guide the design, from the native vegetation to the dramatic mountain views. The Ace team enlisted prominent landscape consultant William Kopelk to cultivate this wide expanse of native desert vegetation into an inviting oasis
.

SHELTER

The rooms are designed to embrace indoor-outdoor living with cloaked, tent-like walls. Many open onto patios with outdoor fireplaces. The color palette for the rooms is soothing and natural. The furniture is vintage, giving a handcrafted feel and making each room unique. Although the room provides an atmosphere of escape, it is highly civilized. Each one of the 180 rooms will have everything you need.


SPA

You can recline and absorb the lulling aromas of rosemary and thyme with a poolside massage, or choose from an assortment of face and body treatments. The spa also includes a sauna, steam room, and gym.


POOLS

There are two: the first, a rarity because of its depth, is connected to a shallower wading pool by an underwater walkway. Pillows and hammocks dot the area for guests looking to lounge. A caravan bar will serve alcoholic sno-cones poolside.


FOOD AND DRINKS

In what was once an old Denny's, King's Highway redefines roadside diner fare as part of an American peasant food tradition—rustic, direct, resourceful, sensuous, and social. The focus will be on fresh, organic, and local ingredients that expand the stereotypical view of Palm Springs to create a regional cuisine grounded in a sense of place. We are committed to nurturing artisanal and independent producers as much as we can. There is an old ranch-hand bar, the Amigo Room, plus the caravan bar for drinking by the pool. We emphasize quality micro-distilleries and fresh mixing ingredients like real, squeezed juices, infusions, and homemade syrups.


PARTIES AND MEETINGS

We feature a modern 3,000 square foot building, the Commune, that opens onto a small outdoor amphitheater and pool. It's perfect for weddings, meetings, and the occasional family supper.
