Coachella — synonymous with great music, all-night party vibes and the latest festival fashion, this once-a-year Californian music festival is fast approaching this Spring.
With headliners including Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Ye (formerly Kanye West) and Swedish House Mafia — this year’s festival promises to be one of a kind.
The festival takes place over two weekends in April — with ostensibly the same line up each weekend—on April 15-17 and April 22-24.
So, you have booked your ticket to one of America’s top music festivals, where are you going to sleep? Unlike the classic tent and field American music festival, partygoers at Coachella will need to book a hotel in the area for the duration of the trip.
Don’t worry, DDW has got you covered with some of the best hotel options in the area.
The Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage
Situated upon a clifftop just a 25-minute drive from the festival, the Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage is the perfect hotel for those who want to retire from Coachella in luxury. With stunning views over the Coachella Valley, guests can view the surrounding desert and unwind after a day of festivities.
The hotel also offers full spa packages as well as an inviting swimming pool — what could be better for revitalizing and rejuvenating on the Monday after the long festival weekend?
Luxury suites are spacious with expansive bathrooms and a private balcony to overlook the vast Colorado Desert. Rooms start at around $500 but go up-up-up during peak times — such as during Coachella.
JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa
This massive luxury hotel is similarly only a 20-minute drive from Coachella. With an incredible outdoor pool and event space, it makes for a great base to come back buzzing after a day of festival-going. Although you may not have time, the hotel has a golf course and tennis court for those looking to try out their swing — maybe in the days before the festival starts?
Rooms are spacious and offer views around the hotel and the surrounding desert. These rooms start at around $400 a night but, like the others, are subject to change significantly.
Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa, Indian Wells
This golf and spa resort is only 15-minutes away from Coachella. This wellness hotel is the perfect respite from a long day of partying, an oasis in the desert. With multiple bars and restaurants serving top quality food and drinks, a swimming pool with its artificial beach and a full spa experience — you can’t go wrong staying at Renaissance Esmeralda.
Rooms are sleek and modern with private balconies and bright, spacious living areas. Rooms start at around $600 per night, but these rates are likely to change.
Now that you know the top places to stay around Coachella, you can truly enjoy all the festival has to offer. The valley in the Colorado Desert — in the state of California — is simply stunning, to put it mildly. Purple sunsets regularly adorn the sky and the weather is cool in the mornings but hot and dry by midday.
With incredible headliners, amazing weather and luxury hotels just a short drive away — it is no wonder why Coachella has become America’s premier music festival.
