The Ultimate Desert Pilgrimage

Our Hotel near the Gypsy Coachella Music Festival

Stay in Relaxing Palm Springs for Coachella

Each year at the world-renowned music festival Coachella, legendary artists and fan favorites croon away in the desert of Indio, CA, to euphoric crowds. Practically a boho fashion show in its own right, the festival is also a whirlwind of memory-making, Instagramming and celebrity spotting.

Tips for Attending:

  • The official website houses a whole collection of detailed guides, covering ticket purchases, dining, driving directions and much more. For a festival of this magnitude, advance reading and prep are essential.
  • Be sure to set meet-up points with friends; cell reception is notoriously unreliable.
  • Make use of the festival app to flag your must-see shows and receive notifications when your favorites are about to hit the stage.
  • Dress in layers—desert temperatures drop at night, catching many off-guard.
