= I need to fly to NYC for a day to go to the party.
HOWEVER, there was open bar with top shelf drinks so I did not absorb the details… but I wasn’t hungover the next day either and hopped on the plane and went straight to work. so proud of myself.
Shurls gave me one of the teddies!!! love it xoxo.

I remember this coat check girl. She was really pissed off.

What makes all ACE hotels special is that they preserve and restore instead of build from the ground up.  The ACE Palm Springs property was once the Westward Ho Hotel and also a local Denny’s.  Part of their philosophy is “to create an egalitarian atmosphere by bringing together creative types with tight budgets and more affluent travelers willing to trade down, as it were, in exchange for cool”.  If you’re looking for luxurious, look elsewhere.  If you’re looking for cool, proceed to check in.

King’s Highway @ Ace Hotel Palm Springs. I had 5 “pot brownies” this weekend.

Bike Rental – tandems too!

For more Palm Springs getaway photos click here.  If you’re thinking about going Coachella weekend, the prices are double, there’s a 3 night minimum and it’s already almost booked out!  Of the 3 ACEs I’ve been to, I still think Portland is the best.  Check out this photo set from NY Times.   Can’t wait for ACE NYC!!!!!!!!!!

This woman is out of this world.  You can find Palm Springs personality, “Linda Fabulous”, hanging out at King’s Highway @ ACE Hotel.  She will tell you about her huge collection of FABULOUS glasses, her spot on Deal or No Deal and if you’re lucky, she will even sing you a song.  Here’s a video of her performing Judy Garland’s “Zing! Went the Strings of my Heart”.  (link to the original song)

ACE hotel Palm Springs!

The Seattle ACE was the first, the place is plastered with KAWS (btw, meet KAWS at Royal/T soon!).  Please excuse my year 2000 face.
I turned 28 at Portland ACE which is my favorite thus far.
