HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS

We’ve reserved blocks of rooms at two hotels. One is about 2 miles from USC in downtown Los Angeles. The other is about 15 miles away, but only 2 blocks from the ocean in Santa Monica. On Dec. 13 & 14, limited transportation between USC and both hotels will be provided via shuttle.

Due to problems encountered when trying to make a reservation at the JW Marriott at the on-line portal, the hotel has added additional rooms to our room block and set up a new reservations portal for this extended reservations period.
