Directions & Parking
The following is information about getting to the convention, including parking at the Marriott as well as directions to the hotel for those driving in. If you are flying to the convention, we suggest you check out the Air Travel page instead.
For those driving locally the following are basic details to the hotel. If you are traveling from out of state by plane to the airports, it is suggested that you familiarize yourself with the LA map prior to departure.
- From North: I-405 South (or from central valley, I-5 south to I-405 south). Exit Century Boulevard/LAX Airport, approximately 2 miles west to hotel. Note: exit will drop you off on a side street; follow signs to Century Boulevard and turn right.
- From East (Inland Empire): I-10 or US-60 (I-10 merge) west to I-405 South, then follow directions for “From North,” above.
- From South (Orange County, Beaches): I-405 north, exit Century Boulevard/LAX Airport, approximately 2 miles west to hotel.
Parking at the Marriott LAX for Daily Visitors: Cost is $13/day . You can either let the parking attendant know you are with Gallifrey One (in which case you pay the $13 up front) or pull a white ticket from the automated kiosk and need to get a green validation ticket from our Member Services desk at the convention center (and hence pay on departure). Should the lot be full, you will need to go with the two Options below.
Parking at the Marriott LAX for Overnight Visitors: Cost is $13/day and will be included on your hotel bill should you be staying at the hotel (one car per room).
Parking at the Renaissance LAX, our Overflow Hotel (plus Option #1): Cost is $13/day for both daily visitors and overnight visitors and is handled in roughly the same way as above. As an option should the Marriott lot be full, they will also honor the $13/day rate.
Parking Elsewhere (Option #2): The Park Air Express airport parking lot is immediately east of the Marriott (between our hotel and the Hilton) and charges roughly the same price as our discounted rate; it is a quick walk across the Marriott lot to get to the convention. There are also other airport parking discount lots in the area; however, you will need to make your own arrangements for transportation to and from these lots.
