    Although we swore to rest our bones between Coachella weekends, we couldn't resist the urge to get all our out-of-town buds under one roof. But, we quickly realized that the R29 HQ couldn't handle that sort of guest list, so we made ourselves at home at No Vacancy — literally.To sum it up: The former Hollywood hotel transformed into the type of house party you see only in teen movies, sans the local 5-0 being a total buzzkill (and the red Solo cups, too).

For everyone else — you may want to pass if you're the jealous type!
