Inexpensive cool
Not as close in town but next to the newest Koffi and this hotel poolside, pool bar and restaurant are one of THE places to be on weekends. Community pool parties. Definitely gay friendly. -DennisMasonPS

I love the minimalistic design. You get almost everything here you may expect from a decent hotel and some surprises also. Staff and service is very casual. Not everybody's thing probably. I liked it. -

“Parking was super simple, checking in was easy to do. The rooms were spacious. We ate dinner at the King's Highway, the on-site restaurant, and all had delicious food. Jacuzzi is extra large, can fit tons of people, which was appreciated since it didn't mean we awkwardly waited until some people left. Drinks at pool bar were DELICIOUS!” -Mary-cate, United States of America

“The pool was so nice and the perfect temperature. It was a really relaxing vibe in the pool area with large comfortable day beds and pool food & drink service. The restaurant King's Highway was delicious and the bar was so much fun! We went to karaoke on Tuesday night and it was great! We had a room with an enclosed patio & fireplace which I definitely reccommend.” -Andrea, Canada

“They upgraded our room for free when we couldn't check in as early as we wanted, but they did get us to check in 2 hours earlier than we were told on so we had time to get ready for the wedding! Super friendly staff. Pool stays open late! There is a free mellow yoga class on Sunday morning on the star deck!!” -Nicole, United States of America


Ace Hotel & Swim Club is an oasis in the desert. Built on the foundation of a 1965 Howard Johnson hotel, it remarries style with substance, focusing on elegance and luxury with a low-key, relaxed vibe. Guests can dine at King's Highway — a fresh, reimagined roadside diner by the folks from Brooklyn's Five Leaves — grab some tacos by the pool or sip on a smoothie from the Short Bus. The menus at our eating and drinking spots focus on fresh ingredients, bold desert flavor and all of the influences of old world California. Sunbathe and stargaze by our two big pools, or soak in the warm botanicals of Feel Good Spa. We feature a vintage photobooth, award-winning room service and a well-equipped gym. Bring your kids, bring your dog— we're family and pet-friendly. Every room comes equipped with robes for lounging, vintage modern furniture and a walking stick for hikes in the mighty San Jacintos. Some rooms have a garden patio and some have a fireplace. Some have record players and old vinyl you can play in your room and take home with you. There's fragrant shampoo from Rudy's Barbershop, and minibars with addictive caramel popcorn. The design is organic bohemian, with vintage mid-century furniture throughout and a giant rope sculpture in the lobby. We collaborate with friends to curate music for the lobby and poolside, and on weekends there's a DJ scene at the pool. Almost every night there's something going on at the Amigo Room — live music, DJs, bingo, karaoke and the occasional special event. We have been called a boutique hotel, and we're not sure what that means. We only know what feels good and what looks good and what this place means to us.

We found a neglected treasure — a mid-century desert modern former Westward Ho with a Denny’s — dusted it off, gave it some love and made it into Ace Hotel & Swim Club. Our 176-room hotel, spa and resort in Palm Springs, California is within biking distance of downtown and close to cool stuff like Joshua Tree, the Salton Sea, Salvation Mountain, all kinds of historic desert modern architecture and tons of great vintage shopping. It's also the best place in Palm Springs to get a laid-back massage or natural treatment at the Feel Good Spa, by the pool or in your room.

Two big pools, a vintage photobooth, award-winning room service, free WiFi and a gym round out the basics. Bring your boyfriend/girlfriend, bring your dog— we're family and pet-friendly. There is a big event space where you can get married, throw a party or have a big-deal meeting. Since the hotel is embedded in one of the best landscapes on Earth, we go to great ends to protect it.

The design is organic and bohemian. Some rooms have a garden patio and some have a fireplace. Some have record players and old vinyl you can play in your room and take home with you for a few bones. There are also communal fireplaces located throughout the hotel.

On weekends there's a DJ scene at the pool. Almost every night there's something going on at the Amigo Room bar — live music, DJs, bingo, crafting, karaoke and the occasional special event like our annual Craft Beer Fest. And it's open late, so join the party whenever. We also throw parties with live music and DJs during Coachella, Gay Pride, White Party and Dinah Shore. And that's not all— we host many events so we welcome you to stay with us and see what else we've got up our sleeve.


The Feel Good Spa at Ace Hotel is an organic, simple experience. Ingredients are pure and basic and come from nature, curated in partnership with Body Deli. This is a real place that engages the spiritual aspects of your well-being. The treatments are practical and indulgent, with an emphasis on the pleasurable enhancement of health. Come feel good.

We have an embarrassment of riches for you to enjoy here. Body treatments, including natural body masks, body brushing, and reflexology, are a good way to ease into the experience. Personalized massage treatments loosen you up, while facials – using the best fresh, raw botanical products – leave your skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated.

*Swedish, couples, deep-tissue and scalp massage

*Exfoliating body scrub, sea-algae body mask, cooling aloe wrap, detoxifying clay wrap

*Detoxifying and hydrating facials

Kings Highwayis the roadside diner at Ace Hotel & Swim Club, helmed by award-winning Chef Carlos Salgado of famed Taco María and executive Chef Carlo Guardado. Formerly a Denny’s restaurant, King’s Highway celebrates the ineffable, bohemian spirit of the wide open West. Chef Salgado’s menu for King’s Highway focuses on his deep commitment to using heirloom ingredients and locally-sourced produce to create exceptional Alta California fare for desert diners.

We’re also the home of Fabulous Bingo with Shirley Claire on Monday nights, and the King’s Highway coffee bar serves beans from our friends at Stumptown all day.

Our Amigo Room Bar serves artisanal cocktails and a wide selection of craft beers in a cool, cavernous space. Our draft beer selection, with 21 taps, is entirely comprised of craft beer.

We have strong relationships with breweries who share our love of expression through their craft. Partners include Stone Brewing Company, Lagunitas, Hangar 24 and Dogfish Head.

There's something going on in the Amigo Room almost every night like awesome DJs, live bands, comedians and performance artists from the desert, LA and everywhere else as well as bashes for Coachella, Gay Pride and every holiday we can use as an excuse to lay around by the pool with a fresh cocktail and good food.

Room service is available all day from King’s Highway or The Amigo Room.

We serve Stumptown Coffee at Ace.

Stumptown is one of our oldest, best Northwest friends. Based in Portland, Oregon, they're committed to sourcing, roasting and brewing the best coffees available anywhere. They have close partnerships with farms and believe that working together year after year results in the highest level of quality.


Every Monday night since time immemorial, a captivated crowd at Ace Hotel & Swim Club have followed the bouncing bingo balls on a fantastic ride — a flamboyant night of sass, song and showbiz razzle-dazzle. We call it Fabulous Bingo, in memory of the night's longtime host/our PSP patron saint, the legendary Linda "Fabulous" Gerard.
