Fodor's Expert Review Ace Hotel and Swim Club

701 E. Palm Canyon Dr., Palm Springs, California, 92264, USA

With the hotel's vintage feel and hippie-chic decor, it would be no surprise to find guests gathered around cozy communal fire pits enjoying feel-good music. Rooms, on two floors of the former Howard Johnson's, are spacious; some on the ground floor have patios with fireplaces. Vintage appointments are simple, and everything inside and out is immaculate. The hotel is canine-friendly, with its own dog park. The Ace's weekend events draw locals and enhance the party atmosphere.
