Picturesque Palm Springs and and a very cool hotel

By Melanie

Palm Springs is the perfect weekend vacay for those that live in Southern California. It takes less than two hours to drive to this desert oasis. I went for a weekend with some friends back in May. It was actually for my bachlorette party! We stayed at the ACE Hotel & Swim Club.
Ace is so unique. At first glance it looks like a small lodge maybe even a renovated motel. But once you're inside you realize that it has so much style and presence. Ace is such a hip, cool hotel. I really liked the vibe and the decor is amazing.

Here we are becoming part of the signage!
Beautiful blue skies against the mountain back drop. Gorgeous!
I love the decor dangling from the ceiling in the lobby.


They even have beach cruisers that the guests can ride into town on. Unfortunatley, we didn't have enough time during this visit to ride them. We spent most of the day by the pool.

He we are lounging pool side.
The pool was filled with a stylish, hipster crowd. Mostly singles, a few young families and people with their dogs. We even saw a bride and groom on their way to get married! The pool had a fun, relaxed atmosphere. They even had a DJ playing.

In addition to their retro decor, the design on all their signage and promo materials is pretty creative.


I love the clean and fresh design, fun colors and cool fonts.

I can't wait to go back! Maybe it will be soon since we're having such "unsummer" like weather here in the OC (it barely reaches past 70 degrees by the beach where I am). I need some sunshine!


  1. How very, very cool (not the weather, the hotel). The bf and I were just discussing a little getaway to PS given that we're freezing here in SoCal (what is up with this weather??)

    This could be a fun spot to stay!

    Thanks for sharing!!
