Here are some shots from our Valentine’s Day/birthday party at Ace Hotel Portland (we just turned three). It was fun and laid-back. We had a great crowd of all ages who had fun crafting valentines with awesome art supplies from Readymade - especially the Xyron sticker machines. Everyone liked the Clyde Continental breakfast too.

OPENING CEREMONY at Ace Hotel New York

Opening Ceremony, the high-fashion version of a cultural-exchange program, unveils its new outpost at Ace Hotel New York on Valentine’s Day. They’ll be joined by Project No.8’s anti-souvenir shop, No. 8a. The people behind these shops are curators, rather than owners. They’ll be bringing their pitch-perfect favorites to the Ace, suiting the stores to everything you’ll need or don’t know you’ll need during your travels. In addition to highlighting their unique and democratic roll call of established and emerging designers, OC at Ace promises Tumi Luggage, Haribo gummie snacks (if you eat through the ones in the snack bar in your room), Maison Martin Margiela white ostrich and goose feather pens, and custom OC dental packs. No. 8a has I <3 NYC snowglobes filled with tiny trashbags, minamalist white sex toys, and double-ended lollipops covered.

Find OC’s countdown to the Ace here.

We have really fabulous weekly events in Palm Springs. The Amigo Room at Ace Hotel &amp; Swim Club was picked by Details Magazine as one of the top ten hotel bars in the world. It&#8217;s become a clubhouse and watering hole for desert locals, and a second home for LA weekenders. Freshly muddled drinks and good food nourish the soul. Unusual DJ nights draw their own followings and build community. Find out if you belong with Linda or Howie, or both. There&#8217;s always something going on.
All week long, you can hang out at the pool, get a massage in a yurt , or enjoy a Desert Facial from the Amigo Room. It&#8217;s made with muddled cucumber and mint in fresh pineapple juice with sparkling water. You don&#8217;t have to pay a cover or book a room to enjoy these rare luxuries, but you might want to check out The Easy Rider.
Here&#8217;s a list of weekly events:
+ Mondays: Rose Tattoo Bingo with Linda Fabulous, the Singing Waitress. Linda has a way with Judy Garland Tunes. Amigo Room, 7 to 10pm.
+ Last Wednesdays: Craft Night with Ranger Joe. 1/2 off drink specials, free craft supplies, and a new craft featured each month. Amigo Room, 6 to 9pm.
+ Thursdays: ¡Reunión!  with DJ Day. Inclusive and intimate. A mix of funk, folk, house, hip hop, dub/step, and disco. Feel at home and be yourself. Amigo Room, 9pm.  Plus TNT Taco &amp; Tequila specials from 5 to 11pm.
+ Fridays: Intoxica Radio Live with Howie Pyro. Playing dirty old rock n&#8217; roll records in the Amigo Room. 9pm.
+ Sundays: Children of the Sun. DJ Victor Rodriguez has punk rock attitude with a disco soul. You can dance to Victor&#8217;s legendary, unique mix or lounge poolside with outdoor cocktails. 3 to 7pm. Plus Sundays at the Short Bus: $4 margaritas and $2 domestic drafts by the pool, 4 to 7pm.
Also on some Thursdays, Ace presents Night Moves, a semi-monthly film night. During the Palm Springs International Film Festival, we had a Jeff Bridges tribute.
