Taco Bell’s Hotel Sold Out of Rooms Faster Than It Takes to Order a Crunchwrap Supreme
When Taco Bell announced it was opening a pop-up hotel in California this summer, it’s safe to say that people freaked out.
When the taco empire released info on how to actually snag a reservation to stay at The Bell: A Taco Bell Hotel and Resort in Palm Springs, serious fans got their game plans ready to book one of the coveted reservations. The hotel is only open for one weekend, starting August 9, so space is very limited.
For a lucky few, a trip to The Golden State is officially on the calendar. But for the majority of us, those hopes were dashed when it was announced that the weekend-long experience completely booked up in about two minutes, according to CNN.
But hey, that’s just supply and demand for you. Considering there are only 70 taco-themed hotel rooms at the resort and just about the whole country trying to snag a night, the chances of getting a room were about the same as walking by a Taco Bell after a night out and not stopping for “fourthmeal.”
“I hope the fans that are the lucky ones to grab a reservation will feel like they have long-term bragging rights,” Taco Bell Chief Brand Officer Marisa Thalberg told Travel + Leisure.
Bragging rights won’t be the only things guests can enjoy. The hotel will offer a Taco Bell gift shop selling hot sauce floaties and beach towels, an on-site salon with Taco Bell nail art, and a special “happier hour” with cocktails and snacks.
Speaking of food, The Bell will have all of our favorite Taco Bell hits — I see you Gordita Supreme — but also “new menu surprises only available at the hotel.”
Though the rooms may be all booked up, it’s worth signing up for the The Bell’s email list to receive updates about the hotel, new merch, and maybe, just maybe, a future location.
