I Want To Go To There: Ace Hotel and Swim Club

22 Sep

I was seriously looking up “kitsch midcentury motels california” in Google, trying to find some rad and unique places to go for a trip in November. I guess I was hoping to find some dorky space-age atomic furnished B&Bs, but came across the Ace Hotel. A 60’s-70’s style vintage furnished hotel in Southern California.

Built on the foundation of a 1965 Howard Johnson hotel, Ace Hotel & Swim Club maintains functionality and simplicity without sacrificing the Ace aesthetic. Much of the property is an outgrowth of the original five-building structure, from the old Denny’s restaurant – now King’s Highway and the Amigo Room – to the rare, deep pool. Just south of downtown and close to the mountains, the location allows easy access to everything.

Definitely not full-on MCM style, but for any avid thrifters or collectors this place is props worthy and perhaps now you have a place to stay in Palm Springs. Oh, and it looks like we’ll be heading to the snow instead of the sun anyhow.
