Ace Hotel + Swim Club

Whenever I visit Palm Springs, I stay at The Ace Hotel + Swim Club. Each Ace location has a different vibe, and Palm Springs is all about laid back. Here are a few pictures from around the hotel...
They have two pools, an enormous hot tub, a dog park, spa, communal fireplaces + awesome bikes to rent.
Each room on the ground floor has a large patio with your own personal outdoor fireplace.

King's Highway, the hotel restaurant, offers lots of veggie options, including a Black Bean Burger Vegetarian Chili and a refreshing Heirloom Tomato + Watermelon Salad.
The Vegan Southwest Tofu Scramble is filled with multi-colored peppers and red onions. Perfect with multigrain toast and their incredible berry jam.

These sea anemone-like flowers bloom all along the fences.
Their pool area is a great place to spend a sunny afternoon.
And they'll deliver their many veggie options to you poolside. The Mezza Plate is my snack of choice. Hummus, baba ghanoush and tabouleh served with crisp pita and cucumbers. There is feta on the side, for sharing with any non-vegans you might be dining with.

Their hot tub is the hottest I've ever encountered. It is so relaxing and cozy when the temperature drops at night.
And on my last morning in PS, this gorgeous hummingbird let me get close enough to take these pictures.
Her wings are moving so quickly they're a blur.
