Ace Hotel & Swim Club reinvents the desert oasis. People come here to escape the city and recharge in the tranquility of the desert landscape. Offbeat details like tamale carts and tuk tuks keep things interesting, while outdoor massages and an edible landscape embraced the serene setting. Built on the foundation of a 1965 Westward Ho, original elements are reinvigorated, from unearthed terazzo floors in the restaurant to the rare deep saltwater pool.
The Ace’s penchant for pure, human design transports guests to an indulgent, bohemian experience. Utilitarian and beautiful, Ace Palm Springs caters to people seeking the simple and sublime.
