awhile back i had made a list of hotels that i thought would make for the perfect little getaway. recently i had the opportunity to visit one of the hotels, so i packed a bag, called my friend and headed to the ace hotel & swim club in palm springs.
mind you, this is no hotel but rather a museum; you are constantly surrounded by art. from three giant letters greeting you at the entrance to a nautical roped lounge chair by the pool, it’s hard not to have a kodak moment around every corner. in our room we had a record player along with a vinyl selection of earth, wind and fire, neil diamond, and the doors; just when you thought this place couldn’t get any cooler. my stay here reminded me of the creative mind and i couldn’t help but think “why didn’t i think of that?” or “i’m doing that to my apartment when i get home”. we all know that saying “it’s not about the destination but the journey”, with the ace hotel they leave you questioning such a remark because frankly with this hotel, it’s all about the destination. i can’t wait to explore and visit all the other ace hotel locations. next stop: downtown los angeles? stay tuned!
“YOU SHALL NOT PASS!” i’m sorry but our room came with a walking stick and a shawl… how can we not ?
