Palm Springs Area Hotel Guide: The Ace Hotel To Open in January
On our weekend trip to Palm Springs we noticed construction going up on the Ace Hotel Palm Springs on Palm Canyon Drive. And today we found this job listing for a Director of Sales and Marketing for the hotel which spilled some detes on what to expect here.
The hotel will have 180 rooms and that distinct Ace personality.
While keeping the bohemian-modern sensibility of Ace hotels in Seattle and Portland, this desert property will be more laid back and natural, with a folk-modern energy. Rooms will be available for the budget traveler as well as those looking for a more deluxe experience.
We had also heard the Denny's restaurant that was on the lot when it was an old Howard Johnson, will be connected to the hotel. And since it's official name is the Ace Hotel and Swim Club, the pool scene will be important. The hotel is scheduled to open in January 2009.
Fun fact? It's just a few blocks away from our VIP reviewer Brad Johns' favorite hotel, the Caliente Tropics.
And good news for bikers. The "Ride Long, Stay Strong" section on the website links to some rambling man talking about motorcycles. We say hog enthusiasts will probably be very welcome.
