An Ace in the Desert

This mid-century gem in the desert was once a Westward Ho with a Denny’s. Now it’s the Ace Hotel & Swim Club. The vibe is very fun and hip, and a bit more youthful than what you typically find in Palm Springs.

The pool area is normally rocking…but of course I shot it early in the morning before the sun-worshippers arrived.

My room had a wooden gate…

with a good-sized enclosed private patio:

A spacious room:

…with signage that keeps it real:

Yup…turntables are back in vogue:

The restaurant has been redone and is now called King's Highway:

A great place for a date shake!

Thumbs up to this little oasis at the edge of town!

I've never heard of a date shake, but that sounds great. Amazing pics, too. Thanks.
