This year, Brad and I decided to camp at Coachella so I'll let you know how that goes! We just want to lounge around and be able to go in and out of the venue to see the bands we love and not have to worry about finding taxis or driving.
Last year, my friends and I stayed at the Ace Hotel, which was amazing. They had a few folky bands playing poolside and at points I really didn't want to leave to go to Coachella. The heated pool, supplied with floaties and noodles stayed open until 3am. Some of the other goodies are the ping pong tables, photo booth and free beach cruisers you can take out. Overall its campy decor, hipster crowd and vintage palm springs feel left me anticipating a happy return!...Oh! And you can bring your dog!
