Ace Hotel & Swim Club, Palm Springs

What’s Up Wednesday

With wedding season in full gear, we have been busy throwing fabulous celebrations every weekend!  What to do when your weekends are slammed?  You grab your BF and get the heck outta dodge for a couple of weekdays!  Since we can’t plan on little weekend getaways, we snatched midweek playtime by a pool with a cocktail in hand.  It was time for a little retro fun in Palm Springs, courtesy of the hipster-fabulous Ace Hotel & Swim Club.

On our trek into the desert, we had to do the quintessential stop to visit the Cabazon dinos!  118*F heat and huge lizards!!  This was going to be an epic getaway.

When we finally reached our destination, we pulled right up to this awesome sign.  We got a little giddy…it may have been the heat, but we were feeling like we were going to be in for a very cool stay.

Think 70’s fab meets yurt haven and I think you will get the picture.  Check out the room!  Replete with tent canvas lined walls!

We are talking legit mini bar status.  And I think I fell in love with the robes and walking stick.  This place is seriously dialed.  Just check out the cool “Not Now” in lieu of “Do Not Disturb” sign.

The random rock by the sink may have been our favorite touch!

Even the wall mounted lighting gave the feel of uber cool flashlights for our “yurt” experience.  Hahaha, I loved all the small touches!

 All checked in, it was time to throw on some suits and check out the other half of this desert gem.  The swim club!!

On our trek to the pools, we were loving all the community fireplaces and lounges along the way.

We weren’t even tempted by a fire, but how dreamy would it be during the Fall?

And FINALLY, the pool…..

This was the perfect chill spot!

In the evening, this gazebo area turned into the coolest drum circle with locals and tourists just doing their thing.  But during the day, it was blasting the misters and bringing the grub!

As if poolside weren’t enough, we were jonesing on the well stocked gym and Good Times Spa!

When things got too hot, and a little air conditioning break was needed, Ace had us well fed with gorgeous field to table dishes and delicious cold brew Stumpton coffee.

Even the bar was dialed.  Epic midweek karaoke my friends.  LOL it was awesome!

Time to throw on something other than a suit and get exploring outside of The Ace.  Don’t fret, we have more to share….
