Marriott LAX Hotel (2014)
[UPDATE 12/2/2013 – The hotel is now completely sold out. We will not be able to add any more rooms to our block. While there may be cancellations, at this point there is no guarantee that any more room will become available at the Marriott.
There are a number of nearby hotels within close walking distance to the Marriott that have comparable rates for the weekend of the convention such as the LAX Hilton, Embassy Suites, Four Points by Sheraton, and Renaissance (also a Marriott property).
[UPDATE 9/4/2013 - Our hotel block is nearly sold out as of this date. We do NOT expect to be able to add any more rooms to our block.]
Los Angeles Airport Marriott
5855 W. Century Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90045
It’s only 5 minutes West of the 405 FWY and 8 minutes North of the 105 FWY. Otaku will find plenty of parking at the Marriott. For those travelling by air, there’s a 24 hour complimentary Marriott shuttle from LAX.
The convention space is all on one floor just below the lobby, and you can easily access your sleeping room directly from the convention floor by one of 6 swift elevators. The LAX Marriott boasts 3 restaurants: JW’s, serving steaks & seafood, Latitude 33, themed as “tastes of the Pacific Rim”, and Champions American Sports Bar with a very reasonably priced menu. There’s also a Starbucks which will be open for us all weekend, and many restaurants, shops and eateries are just a short walk away and fit just about anyone’s budget.
The sleeping rooms in this hotel are very generously apportioned, the LAX Marriott having been built over 40 years ago when hotels were still built with a customer’s comfort in mind. The pool is gigantic and surrounded by a lanai deck that’s perfect for cosplay gatherings. There’s a large, well equipped gym and a small Laundromat in case that rare stain on clothing needs to be removed in a hurry.
For Animé Los Angeles we are working to block all the first floor rooms, those on the pool level, with people who expect to be up “late night”. The number and types of rooms are limited, so speak to us early. If you want to be on the “late night” floor you must let us know. Send your hotel liaisons an email with your reservation number, the names of all listed on the reservation and any details you’d care to share.
Remember if your aren’t on the first floor, please go quietly, no running, squeeing, or tromping down the halls in groups.
We have a great deal from the Marriott with rooms for $116/night for single/double/triple/quad occupancy.
Animé Los Angeles hotel reservations are now open. You must make a reservation by Thursday, December 19, 2013 in order to receive the reduced rate. The Animé Los Angeles reduced parking rate for overnight parking is only available for rooms within our rate block. Note that the parking rate won’t show up on the website system, as their website computers aren’t programmed to handle that. One-day parking, if you’re commuting each day, is available at our rate. You may need to bring your parking stub to Information to get it validated.
The reduced parking rate is $14 (50% off the regular rate) plus tax. This rate applies for members who are staying at the hotel and people coming in each day. If you are staying at the LAX Marriott, but not under the Animé Los Angeles reduced room rate, then you may be charged the regular rate.
There are no reduced suite rates. If you wish to book a suite, you may do so at the prevailing rates based on availability.
If you made a reservation outside of the Animé Los Angeles room block, please send your reservation details to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org so you will be able to receive the correct discounted rate as well as discounted parking rate (only available to those in the Animé Los Angeles room block). The hotel is now sold out and will not be able to add anymore rooms to our block. If you have a reservation outside of the room block, we cannot guarantee getting the convention parking rate.
If you have any specific questions, please contact our hotel liaisons at: email@example.com
To make your room reservations you can either call the Marriott at 1-800-228-9290 or go to their website.
