Accessible Lodging for Coachella Festival

TravelFilter: I need recommendations on where to stay during the Coachella Music Festival.

I'm thinking about going to the Coachella festival and I want to find a hotel room before everything is booked. I need something that is wheelchair accessible. Any suggestions? Also, what kind of public transportation is available in the area? Should I rent a van? Any advice is appreciated.

Here's the hotel/motel list from the Coachella site. A lot of places may already be booked up -- lodging starts filling up for the festival months in advance when the dates are confirmed, even before the lineups are announced.

Oh, and here's the Coachella forums, too; there's a section with current discussions on lodging and transportation. This makes it sound like public transportation isn't really an option -- you can either get to the pick-up/drop-off point via taxi or shuttle, or drive and park yourself. I believe the festival grounds and parking lot are all grass, if that matters in terms of wheelchair mobility.

Holiday Inn Express advertises their ADA compliance and have been decent places to stay(in other locals) in my experience. Ramada Hotels, of which there are a few near by, also have accessible rooms.

Have a fantastic time.
