During our trip to Crafting Community, we had the pleasure of staying at Ace Hotel Palm Springs. That officially makes check number two off my ace bucket list, the first being in Seattle. Despite our experience being a little different because of camp, the place was everything I hoped it would be. We like Ace Hotels because there is extra thought put into all the right aspects of a hotel stay. I don’t always care for some of the extras at finer hotels, but absolutely hate some of the bland design and horrible service at lower-level chains.
The Patio with Fireplace room was quite spacious, and an extra bed was made out for Aiden in addition to the king sized bed for the three of us. We had a good sized patio with a fireplace which was perfect for relaxing after the kids were off to sleep. The shower was good sized, with high quality rudy’s toiletries included. My favorite thing about Ace is the charcoal facial soap from detox because I use a charcoal soap and always have to bring my own. I don’t need to freak out if I forget it while staying here.
Most amenities were standard at Ace. The pool area was a big hit with temperatures climbing above 90F most days. There were actually two pools available during camp which was wonderful because one was more quiet. At the larger pool towels were available via a towel bus, and food and drink were also available at the bar. Ace in Palm Springs boasts a full service spa, gym, and a dog park since it is pet friendly. The kids never felt out of place and were welcomed with open arms, and I have friends who feel the same.
We really enjoyed our time at Crafting Community, and our time at Ace. We’d love to go back to see more of Palm Springs at some point, perhaps during the cooler months. As for a rating, 9/10 is our pick. I wish the concrete around the pool weren’t so hot, and parking were a little easier. but overall it’s another Ace property that we’re in love with.

We stayed at Ace Palm Springs three days in July 2016, one of these was a Saturday: it was like spring break, a music video and the craziest bachelor party rolled into one. Very fun, except for the expirence for our 2 kids aged 11 and 8. We were almost worried they would get STDs from the pool! Seriously: people were having sex and smoking weed in the pool. We are from Denmark and super liberal and not prudish at all, but this was too much. After the weekend things slowed down, and the hotel was absolutely fantastic. My point is that if you are traveling with kids consider going on weekdays, or contacting the hotel in advance to hear if they have many events planned or groups staying with them. If it’s just adults, it’s a super fun and a lovely hotel. The kids were welcomed by the hotel and staff, but the behavior of other guests was too much.

You take some amazing pictures! I haven’t been to the beach in a long time! Well since 2012! I’m in need of going back…i love the relaxing sounds of the waves and the warm sun with a cool drink. Ok now i want to be at the beach!
Wow, this hotel looks beautiful! My husband and I are always torn about where to stay when we travel. We, like you, get annoyed with boring and bland hotels, but hate it when a place feels stuffy. That’s left us leaning more toward boutique style hotels that are thoughtfully designed but are also warm and inviting. Your post has me checking out all the Ace locations and planning my next getaway. Panama maybe?
PS – I wish I could capture photos as beautiful as yours!

The ACE hotel looks beautiful, I love how much detail was in your room. I can’t believe that had charcoal face wash! Normally all places have those tiny samples that just break me out! Plus a fireplace in your room! Your stay sounds amazing!

Shawn and I love staying at more ’boutique’ hotels as well for the same reasons. I love the added details and the room with patio AND a fireplace sounds divine! Palm Springs is on the bucket list, definitely! I’ll have to check out Ace Hotels as well! Thanks for sharing!
This hotel looks amazing!! Thank you for sharing! It sounds like you had a great time! <3

What a cool looking place! We stayed at the Ace Hotel is Seattle and loved the experience. It was out first time at a hotel with shared bathrooms, but we would definitely do it again. And it was affordable!
We stayed at Seattle too! Our room had it’s own bathroom though. It’s not easy to do shared bathrooms with a family of 4.
