Unfortunately, room rates at most hotels are as high as the calorie count in whatever it is Emerilís cooking up. Your best bet may be to book through the festivalís preferred travel agentóthereís a list of participating hotels on the website, ranging from the Catalina at $239 a night to the W South Beach for $429 a night.
Thatís not cheap but over on Expedia the Catalina is $329 a night, and the W South Beach was not even available on festival nights through its own website.
