In addition to miles and points and travel, one of my hobbies is watching “reality” TV shows including the Bachelor and Bachelorette.  Like many TV shows, the next season of the Bachelorette has been affected by COVID.  The Bachelorette starring Clare Crawley was supposed to start filming this spring but filming will now start mid-July and will take place exclusively at a resort in California.

Normally each season of The Bachelor/Bachelorette involves a lot of travel.  While the contestants initially stay in a mansion in California, as the season progresses and their number is reduced they start traveling both within the US and then later to various international destinations.

Where is the next season of Bachelorette filming?

Due to COVID, the next season of the Bachelorette will not involve travel and will be filmed in its entirely at one resort in California.  According to Reality Steve (who is the expert on all things Bachelor) the next season of the Bachelorette will be filmed at the La Quinta Resort & Club in La Quinta, California which is a Hilton Honors property.

La Quinta Resort & Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort is a Hilton Honors property located about 25 miles east of Palm Springs. Hilton no longer publishes an award chart but according to Hilton’s Points Explorer tool, standard award nights at the La Quinta Resort & Club range from 47,000 to 80,000 points per night. Cash rates range from $189 in September (which is low season) to $526 in March (which is high season).

According to Reality Steve, the cast and crew will have exclusive use of the La Quinta. The cast has already started arriving, they will be tested then quarantined for one week and then filming will take place for about 6 weeks until the end of August.

My search for availability using the flexible dates confirms that the property is fully sold out until September 3.

I have not stayed here yet but it looks like a really nice property so I would definitely like to stay here in the winter or spring. Here is the description from the website.
