As of March 25, 2013, the convention block at the Marriott Los Angeles Airport Hotel (our host hotel) as well as for the Renaissance Los Angeles Airport Hotel (our overflow facility) have completely filled up. We have taken all contracted hotel rooms at the Marriott, and except for those few, the Marriott is about nearly sold out. As a reminder, Gallifrey One offers a block of discounted rooms as a courtesy (it is not something guaranteed by the convention) and interest was phenomenally high this year. (Just to give you an idea of the interest: over 700 rooms were sold out within the course of a half hour the day they opened.
However, there are still PLENTY of rooms available in the immediate area including at our two hotels, more than enough for everyone to get a hotel room at a decent price. We’ve prepared this handy guide to help you find lodging for Gallifrey 2014. The following information is good as of March 2013 though we will attempt to update it later in the spring.
Marriott Los Angeles Airport, 5855 West Century Blvd.: While our convention room block is sold out, there are an extremely limited number of rooms available in the hotel at $199/night currently. You are also welcome to keep trying over the course of the year with our convention code GLFGLFA to see if any reserved rooms in our block open up.
Renaissance Los Angeles Airport, 9620 Airport Blvd., on the block north of the Marriott next to Four Points Sheraton: Our block has filled up as well, but there are still many rooms available at the Renaissance at $179/night. Remember that Gallifrey One is working on a shuttle service for Friday and Saturday nights (10:30pm – 2:30am) after evening programming from the Marriott to the Renaissance. Also, use convention code GALGALA over the next 11 months to see if rooms open up.
Hilton LAX Airport & Towers, 5711 West Century Blvd., on the opposing side of the Marriott parking lot and one door down (past the Park Air parking structure). As of March 2013 they have not yet released rooms for February 2014 for reservations but they should later in the spring.
Courtyard by Marriott LAX, 6161 West Century Blvd. While the lowest price we are currently seeing is $219/night, note that the Courtyard is on the same shuttle as the Marriott LAX so we include it on this list.
