    yeah we r going to stay at a motel 6 in p. springs. nothing fancy just a place to crash. we plan a vacation every year and we r gonna do coachella this year. we go to festivals during the summer and have always wanted to do coachella and now that it is 3 days it makes it even more compelling so we will be there. every festival i go to i always discover new bands to get into so this should be a great festival..

    Stayed at the Courtyard in Palm Springs last year $280/night. It was great but kind of far from the campgrounds.

    This year I am staying at the Marriott Shadow Ridge in Palm Desert.

    Good luck getting a room now. I reserved mine 5/1/06.

    FYI Hyatt Grand Champions is SOLD OUT.

    Some sites are also showing the Esmerelda as SOLD OUT and anything (decent) under $150 in Palm springs as SOLD OUT as well.

    ACT QUICKLY if you want a room - its slim pickins from herer on out, I'm afraid.

    Hey Kampy.

    I made a couple of calls right now. Here are the results.

    Hotels within 7 miles of event.
    • Hyatt Grand Champions Resort-Had arrangement with cab company-did not know price.

    • Indian Wells Resort Hotel-No shuttle service.

    • Miramonte Resort- Had arrangement with cab company-$40.00 round trip.

    • Renaissance Esmeralda-No shuttle service. Concierge thought shuttle service was a good idea.

    • Hilton Garden Inn Palm Springs- No shuttle service.


    Drinking in the heat doesn't work out too well for me anyways:-)
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Thanks Kampy, I've been spoiled & stayed with friends in the area for the past 3 yrs, but this year I'm on my own.....this vacation rental thing looks amazing, but kinda a pain in the ass. DAMN. I'm bringing about 8 friends (but always more will somehow end up crashing with us...), sadly, I'm gonna be the one doing the organizing.
    BUT, the lineup is gonna make up for any headache i have to endure. I've been waiting for RAGE for yrs!!! Blending in Damien Rice, Spank Rock , !!!, The Roots, Black Keys (what a show, damn!), the Frames,.....I can't even begin to imagine.

    Has anyone stayed @ the Best Western on Indio Blvd? If so is it any good? I am just not hoping it is a hooker hotel, like how someone posted earlier. I paid TOO MUCH money for a room there, so i hope it is at least a decent place to rest my head.

    It's pretty impractical, but if you don't mind driving a little farther, check out motels in Yucca Valley. It would be a 45 minute drive to the Polo Grounds, but you could find a room cheap. That's where I lived for the last ten years and made the drive every year for both days of the festival. It's honestly not too bad, and if it's a choice between a longer drive and either paying an arm and a leg or not going, I'd look into staying in Yucca Valley. You could also check out Desert Hot Springs.

    I just booked a room at the fairfield in in San Bernadino. Its an hour away but the rooms are great and since my sis works for Marriott I got a massive discount. Like 40%. So advice to anyone. If you have a friend or family that works at marriott have them hook you up with the Friends and Family Rate.

    There are still rooms available at Embassy Suites. Kind of expensive, but
    very nice, and close.

    i guess for me where i stay is not a major deal. i get the having a party after the show type of feel, but the party is there at the festival for me so ill crash at a cheap hotel and be just fine.

    But hey, if your low on funds and have no other choice then I think its really cool they have camping as an option

    I, on the other hand, am going to stick with my cheap Motel 6 room

    Psyched up people, 7:00am Sun = No Sleep for 3 days. I'd say a motel is a good call.

    The Best Western Date Tree is probably my favorite place to stay. Very clean, nice staff, and a free continental breakfast.
    This year I'm staying at the Royal Plaza Inn. Not quite as clean, but much cheaper and they don't have that 3 night minimum thing.

    I just booked a room at the Westin Mission Hills & Villas in Palm Springs and had no problem. There's still vacancies around.

    TOTALLY TOTALLY AGREE!!!!

    3day Coachella concert + campsite pass= $339.65
    1 12 ounce bottle of water = $3.00
    1 Coachella hoodie = $40.00
    Walking out the main entrance and not having to worry about fighting traffic to get to your hotel = PRICELESS!!!!

    The drive home after the last act can be long, but oh well, nothing you can do when so many people leave at the same time. The traffic is not as much an issue as the idea of going an extra 20 minutes when some people stay in indio or indian wells, which are rather close.
