We had a wedding at the ACE but the room block was already full. Found the Desert Riviera on tripadvisor and could not be happier. The pool and garden areas are very pretty and well maintained. It is not the party hotel. Quite the opposite, tt was quiet, guests were all couples (various aging groups), great to relax by the pool and lay back. You can use the bbq if you want to just stay at the hotel and not drive downtown (although it is just a 7-10 minute easy drive). They have tons of videos at the lobby you can just take to the room (at no cost), although we didn't have time to do that, I thought it was a nice touch. The room and bathroom were nice too, retro decor, well maintained, cleaned and comfortable bed and linens. Nothing too fancy but had all the elements needed to make it comfortable. It is very sweet that they offer a complimentary glass of wine or beer as soon as check in and there is also a complimentary basket of snacks in the room. They also provide 2 complimentary bottles of water (I only wished they had replenished the water after the first night or had it available for purchase)
A plus for us was the convenience of being just across the street from the ACE, no driving to or from wedding, being close to where our friends were yet having a quiet oasis to come back to relax.
I would certainly go back and recommend.
