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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
