DUE TO RENOVATIONS THERE WILL BE NO AFTER PARTY ANYMORE AT THIS HOTEL.

EVERYONE STAYING AT THE HOLIDAY INN SHOULD KNOW: ALL HOTEL ATTENDEES WILL BE GIVEN WRISTBANDS UPON CHECK IN. THESE WRISTBANDS MUST BE WORN ALL WEEKEND. FOUR (4) WRISTBANDS MAXIMUM PER ROOM.

The Holiday Inn has to account for a number of extra features, one of which will be extra hired security who will patrol the hotel throughout The Fest 19. If they find people roaming the hotel after 10pm without a Holiday Inn wristband on, they will be forced to escort you out. This is to prevent the massive number of non-hotel attendees who were at the hotel many years ago during Fest stirring up trouble late at night. Since we have started this rule, it has made the hotel much cooler and your stay much more of a private FEST party! You are paying good money to stay here so you would like to enjoy it right?

Here’s the skinny on the Stayable Select Gainesville (FKA Wyndham Garden)

Just like years past, this is the chill-out get-away hotel for those of you that don’t want to party ‘round-the-clock while you’re here. Stayable Select is by far the nicest hotel in Gainesville in terms of location and scenery; they have a killer outdoor pool that looks out over Biven’s Arm Lake, so you can camp out here with your special someone and enjoy cocktails while relaxing next to the lake and look out at the Florida wildlife…GATORS! Like last year, they’ll be running FEST drink and food specials from their in-house restaurant and bar. They also run a shuttle in the mornings downtown or anywhere that is close you need to get to. Best bet is to buddy up with the driver. They might even pick your tired ass up from downtown and tuck you into bed!
