The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival takes place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif. The Black Keys, Radiohead, the Shins, Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg and a ton of other bands are featured at this year's outdoors concerts starting this weekend. The Saguaro hotel in nearby Palm Springs puts you close to the action and has a $199 room rate that comes with exclusive pool-side music parties in a kind of mini-Coachella celebration.

The deal: The Saguaro, a relative newcomer to the Joie de Vivre chain of hotels, will host Desert Weekender parties 1-6 p.m. featuring DJs such as KCRW's Jason Bentley of "Morning Becomes Eclectic," live performances by Nosaj Thing, Tokimonsta and other bands, plus free food goodies too. The rate requires a two-night minimum stay during the weekends of the Coachella fest.

When: The offer is good Friday through Sunday and April 20-22.

Tested: Last week, this package started at $380 a night for a three-night minimum. Now, the price drops to the hotel's  best available rate at this hotel -- and comes with the party factor. I found availability for rooms both weekends starting at $199 plus tax a night.
