Ace Hotel & Swim Club unveils new Mural
By artist Laura Berger
Ace Hotel & Swim Club’s has exclusively unveiled a new large scale mural from Chicago-based artist Laura Berger.
Laura's mural evokes a singular California feeling — its rich desert hues, legacy of sun worship and unified spirit of collaboration, all elements we try to foster at Ace, too. We're really lucky to have her work here for our 10th Desert Gold celebration. -Kelly Sawdon, Chief Brand Officer, Atelier Ace
I'm very inspired by the desert and I draw from it a lot for my work, so this was such a dreamy project. It was restorative to paint in the quiet early mornings, look at the bright blue sky with mountains and palm trees around me, and to meet the amazing team at Ace. The mural, titled "Lifting the Sun," represents our collective interests as a community of humans — supporting each other, and holding up what's good on an individual, societal and environmental level. -Laura Berger, Muralist

Two big pools, a vintage photo booth, inspired tacos and more at King's Highway, nightly events at the Amigo Room and a gym round out the basics. Bring your kids, bring your dog — they are family and pet-friendly.
