The Hilton Palm Springs is charging $355 while Hotel ZoZo is asking $459. Don't even think about the Westin Mission Hills at $600 a night. After all, that doesn't include internet (and you might even get a dirty room.) On the bright side, there are a slew of budget hotels and motels like Best Westerns and Days Inns ranging from $150 to $200 a night.
For Coachella's second weekend, the Saguaro is the same rate as is the Hilton and ZoZo while the Westin comes down to $329 and JW Marriott Desert Springs pops up at $459 a night. Naturally, the hipster party haven that is the Ace Hotel Palm Springs is sold-out both weekends. Same for the Parker Palm Springs and the Viceroy.
Over on Kiwi Collection, we did see rooms at the Riviera Resort and Spa open for $449 a night for the first weekend of Coachella. And if you book the room using a Visa premium credit card, you will get the following perks: automatic upgrade if available, complimentary continental breakfast, 3pm check-out if available, VIP guest status, $25 food or beverage voucher, complimentary internet or valet parking.
In short, we think you should book the Saguaro which will give you substance and style at a great rate but if you want a little more luxury, go for the Riviera and the Kiwi perks.
