2010 Palm Springs Int'l ShortFest

PALM SPRINGS INTERNATIONAL SHORTFEST
and THE ACE HOTEL & SWIM CLUB
OFFER A SPECIAL PROMOTION


How does a Palm Springs summer getaway get a little cooler? The Ace Hotel & Swim Club is offering two chillin' travel packages during the Palm Springs International ShortFest, which takes place June 22-28.

One of the world's most celebrated short film showcases, the annual Festival has teamed up with the celebrated Palm Springs property, a boutique hotel that the L.A. Times calls "a fun, affordable retreat that is a bit urban, a bit like a camp-out." When they're not watching screenings at the air-conditioned Camelot Theatre, ShortFest attendees can stay cool in the Ace's outdoor deep pool, or even enjoy a booze sno-cone from the Short Bus Bar.


TRAVEL PACKAGES INCLUDE:

The Long Short Week
$300 plus applicable hotel taxes and fees.
Package includes:
   2-night stay on Tuesday, June 22 and Wednesday, June 23.
   2 passes good for the Opening Night Screening and Party, and all screenings on Wednesday, June 23 and Thursday, June 24.


The Long Short Weekend
