I Want to Go to There...

...the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs, CA. Oy! After the week I've had, it would be nice to get away for a looong weekend in this equal parts retro and kitschy hotel.  It's on the grounds of a renovated mid-century modern motel, but it's somewhat atypical of desert modern architecture in that the rooms border on granola-hippy.  Don't believe me?   There's a Commune.  Don't get me wrong, though.  I love it! Anyway, the place has only been open for a little more than 2 years and it's already been named on of the top new hotels by lots of travel mags. Look how homey the rooms are!  I know I'd love a bedroom that opened up onto a patio... Once I've gotten some R & R, I'd tool around town on one of these...which they provide: Here's where I'd be getting my massage... Perhaps not this weekend, but I'll be booking a vacay here sooner rather than later. For more information on events, rooms, spa services and gift cards for me, visit Ace Hotel.
