–HELLO EVERYONE. I will not be updating this for the winter 2019 Flea, but much of this info is still good, so I’ll leave it up for anyone who wants to use it! D. —

Okay,  yeah, so the official” host hotel, the Crowne Plaza and the overflow hotel, the Holiday Inn Express, sold out pretty much as fast as you can say tutu. There are still some rooms left at the third official hotel, the Hilton Garden Inn, for $87 a night: Reserve at the Hilton.

Prefer another hotel? Below is your complete guide, to help you find your heart’s desire. Indoor pool? No problem. Whirlpool? You bet. Fireplace? Yep, that too. The best deals for those who want to save their money to spend on new toys; a few swankier places for big spenders. A few rare deals on suites with sofa beds, plus a lowdown on which places have hot breakfasts or free breakfasts.

These hotels are all within one to eight miles of the Crowne, where all official Flea events, shopping and other festivities are taking place, and also where all of Queer + Kinky’s fun will be happening. Distances from the Crowne below are from Google maps, and times are without traffic. We’re told there is free parking at the Crowne, and $10 if you want valet service.

NOTE: These prices are from 2017. We’re in the process of updating for 2018.  We’ve put a note in the text showing how far we’ve updated.

Also note: There are nightly prices assuming you are staying TWO NIGHTS, Friday and Saturday. You may pay more per night for a Sat. only stay, however, most or all these hotels (other than the “official hotels”, the Crowne, the Holiday Inn Express and the Hilton) offer the option of one-night stays. Also, the rates listed are the ones with reasonable cancellation policies…if you want to pre-pay and give up your option to cancel you can often do better than what we’ve listed.
