Last year after the sandstorm my girlfriend and I, getting older, decided it might be time to have the luxury of a bed and shower every night/morning for the festival. We are looking at booking the La Quinta Resort and Club through VMT, but have questions for those that have stayed here and also used VMT for any other hotel.
Basically I want to get a feel for, this being the closest hotel travel package that VMT offers (also the most expensive), is it worth the money to stay at this hotel with it being so close?
How long did the shuttle wait/drive take? Are cabs easy/cheap going in/out of this place if we miss the shuttle going home at night?
What was the age demographic at the hotel? (we are 30)
Was the place noisy/loud/rowdy? Are there day parties at the pool?
How were the restaurants? Do they have 24 hour room service?
How were the staff during coachella? Angry and annoyed?
Did you play any golf/or use the spa? How were the facilities of each?
Would you recommend this hotel to another person/couple?
What other hotels (if any) have you stayed at during coachella and was the distance ever a factor?
If you could pick one to stay at, would La Quinta be it?
Anyone who has stayed at any of the other hotels please feel free to chime in with your experience. We are considering just about all of them, but with La Quinta being so close it seems like the best option as far as "ease of use" goes, but I wanted to hear it from the patrons.
