Los Angeles City College (LACC)

Lodging and Hospitality

"Los Angeles: A World City by Subway &Light Rail"

There are of course many hundreds of possible lodging options and loads of other accomodations in Los Angeles. We urge you to seek out locations that are conveniently served by subway or light rail. Listed below are lodging options in the Hollywood area, but many locations along the Metro system would be convenient, including Old Town Pasadena, Universal Studios, North Hollywood and Downtown.

You should also use some caution in selecting motels/hotels in the Hollywood area (and anywhere really) because the quality can be VERY uneven. Below are a list of hotels/motels that were visited personally by our host/sponsor and have been "approved" because they appeared to offer saftey, cleanliness and comfort - and accessibility to the conference venue itself. You are, of course, welcome to seek other options, but we urge you to take some extra caution.
