Thanks to both of you who answered my original questions re festival costs and I'm sorry to bother everyone again but I need very specific info (mainly because this would be a gift and I have to be very accurate). I'm feeling very lost and need lots of help.
I'm looking for a clean, safe, centrally located hotel that is cheap ! I don't need pools and all kinds of special amenities--except a frige in the room for some of my meds. I was thinking of The Renaissance, because they quoted me a senior price of $220, but found out today that rates go up to about $700 once the festival dates are released and I can't afford any where near that !
How much am I expected to leave for daily maid service ? I'll have my own breakfast and lunch, but where can I get a decent dinner for a reasonable cost ?
I'm not planning on spending money on souvis, except maybe a program for celeb sigs. Hopefully nothing else. No tours/side trips, etc.. Also I'm flying out of Boston, so I'm guessing the airfare will be high. Without specific dates it's hard to get any clear answers from anyone, but I can't
purchase a pass without a hotel in mind. I'll be buying an Essential pass, which runs about $600, I believe. So that's the only cost I have nailed down (unless they go up next year !)
I have to worry and try to get things rolling now as it will all hit so fast and everything will need to be booked immediately.
Every little piece of info helps.
Thanks again, in advance,
