Site Visit: The Ace Hotel-An Oasis in the Desert
We recently had the pleasure of spending some time at The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs while waiting for our flight back to San Francisco. It's one of the new hip properties in the desert catering to a younger crowd. Room rates are extremely reasonable and the pool scene is the place to be on the weekends. Every Sunday they host the "Sundays at the Short Bus" party featuring a variety of DJ's and homemade boozy snow cones. What's not to love?
The property was originally a Howard Johnson hotel and the adjoining restaurant began it's life as a Denny's. Although completely revamped, the property still maintains the kitschy side of it's humble beginnings.
We were not able to check out the event space during our visit because it was still under construction but more recent photos which we've posted below show it's definitely a fabulous place to hold private events and weddings. We plan on going back down in August to check out the completed space so stay tuned for more details.
We love The Ace!
