    Question Hotels in the area already booked for 2013?!?

    I normally book our hotel room a year in advance because we always stay at the same place. I was just about to do that and it turns out that they have NO ROOMS AVAILABLE either the 2nd or 3rd weekends in April of next year. So I did a little searching and it turns out that every hotel on the shuttle lines is sold out for those weekends in 2013.

    That seems ridiculous, even considering the demand for wristbands, etc. It makes me wonder if Golden Voice or someone blocked a bunch of rooms so that they could sell more packages next year.

    Anyone know what's going on??

    Maybe they just aren't for sale yet. Most only open bookings 11 months out. Why not just pick up the phone and call?

    Captn have you guys stayed at the same place for the past few years? Do they automatically save it for you?

    Nice, we do too. I just wish ours had a pool. We can access the public pool, but it would be so great to dive in whenever you felt like it.

I want to just camp and not even get a hotel, but the heat this year and the fact that all my friends were DEAD tired on Sunday made my g/f even more convinced that she never wants to camp lol. So I'll just be safe and get both.

    FOR SURE going weekend one this year, do we all agree that weekend one will be April 12-14?
    not sure on dates...as far as heat, that solar system afforded us the ability to have a running shower, 26" box fans and misters...the canopies made it 100% shade for 14 sites.
    i had a nice bed in my jeep, fans inside there (14v) and we kept food and drinks frozen or cold (whichever ice chest we put stuff in) wed-monday.

    camping is as comfortable as you make it. if your girl is high maintenance, you need to bawss out your design. best of both world would be to have hotel+campsites tho. i had tons of offers, houses, hotels, burton pool party, casino penthouse ect.
    i was having way too much fun to even leave my own camp. i want to spend more tine lurking other setups next year.

    I did call. The rates haven't been released yet. Kind of weird because I booked around this same time last year but I guess I'll just be patient. I just like to take care of it early so I don't have to worry about it later.

    I'm sure this has been discussed to death, but as a first time attendee this year, I am SO GLAD we went with car camping. If you prepare the right way it's the perfect setup. We were a 10 minute walk from any stage, had our own shower and charger and never waited in line for anything. The security check getting in off the shuttle is way more thorough than the one coming in from the campground. I spent one day at a condo with some friends and it was the worst part of my whole experience. Pool was fun, but there was so much dead time just waiting for the shuttle, sitting in the shuttle, waiting in security lines, getting cavity searched at the line.

    Car camping for life.

    Shit man. Last year I didn't book until the day that the dates were announced and I thought that was early. I guess I better get on that if they're already raising rates for those weekends.

    I have noticed that several of the hotels that are part of the travel packages won't let you book, says no rooms available.

    Several hotels in palm desert and la quinta appear to be sold out for what will most likely be weekend one and the others have already raised their rates. I ended up booking at a hotel in Palm Springs that is within walking distance to the shuttle stop.

    just wait until motel 6 makes the dates available. they are never more than $100/night, never jack their rates up like every other place out there.

    Will do, thanks Steve. That will save me a lot of money, my g/f and I paid around $180 per night this year at Holiday Inn Express Palm Desert and I booked a year in advance. What city is the motel 6 in?

    The Motel 6 in at Washington and the 10 already has the dates available. They are cheap. The Comfort Suites next to it not so much.

    The place I stayed in this year (across the street from shuttle) has wised up and has tripled their rates already for the 12th weekend. Hopefully I can sneak in the second weekend dates but probably not since they know it's two weekends now.

    Not having to drive and get ready was sooo good. I never want to leave the air conditioned hotel room when it's hot as fuck outside and end up getting to chella around 3-4pm sometimes...then I have to come down from my geeking before I drive back.

    Until this last year, I was a champagne and hot tub suite guy spending 2000 for a weekend at a hotel. I'll do that in Vegas and camp at chella. Don't be slipping on that weekend one shit this year mang.

    You have on site RV access? Damn you're lucky man. An RV would be the way to go for Coachella

    closest are in indio and one right off of I-10 and washington, which was my preferred location until i started rv'ing it. easiest drive in with pretty much a direct shot up washington then cut over on 50th.

    Even the hotels in Palm Springs have almost doubled their rates for Friday and Saturday of the fest.

    Getting a hotel AND a Car camping spot this year. I have a high maintenance g/f so she needs to have a shower and bed unfortunately. But she can sleep in the hotel every night with her friends while the homies and I sleep in the camping spot. And I'll sleep in the hotel one night to get a good night's sleep, and shower there and shit.

    I can always cancel the hotel reservations too since they usually don't make you pay anything until check in.

    Hilton Garden Inn-Rancho Mirage is the ticket. Stayed here twice before. Just booked again for next year. $119 a night for a room with 2 queen beds. Recently remodeled quiet rooms with room darkening shades. Walking distance to shopping and 24-hr eats.

    Do you know if it's easy to get to that shuttle stop without a car from that hotel? I was in palm springs this year and taxis were mental, we walked from our resort to the stop for over an hour each day and were super lucky to find lone cabs back at night - I presume taxi's would be busy in that area too?

    The Hilton Garden Inn-Rancho Mirage is a little over a mile from the the Green Palm Desert shuttle line that stops by the Albertsons on 111. I've locked my bike at the Albertsons all day with no issue. The hotel price is right and open for booking now. If you have neither a bike nor a car, however, then the hotel is not a good idea for you. :/

    I've booked the whole lot - just in case, you know. Every weekend in April in a 25 mile radius for the rest of time.
