PAMLA 2022 Hotel (and Transportation) Information

The 2022 PAMLA Conference is being held at the lovely 4-star UCLA Luskin Hotel and Conference Center, on the beautiful UCLA campus, in the heart of Los Angeles. However, the Luskin is close to sold out (see below; if anyone were to cancel, rooms could appear). And so, we have worked to negotiate great rates at three lovely nearby hotels (some of these have also sold out, but do check to see–some, perhaps the Hotel Angeleno, may have rooms available still).

UCLA Luskin Hotel and Conference Center

425 Westwood Plaza, Los Angeles, CA 90095

(855) 522-8252

The Luskin has an indoor/outdoor restaurant, bar, fitness center, a shuttle, room service, and is steps away from UCLA’s Student Union (with many restaurants and services). By staying at the Luskin at the special PAMLA rate ($169 plus tax per night), you will be walking distance from Westwood, one of Los Angeles’s charming urban neighborhoods (with many restaurants, movie theaters, shops, and the UCLA Hammer Art Museum). And driving distance, or a convenient Lyft or Uber or taxi ride to such Los Angeles landmarks as the Getty Art Museum, the Sunset Strip, Santa Monica or Venice Beach, Universal Studios, and downtown LA (with its many art museums and restaurants). The Luskin hotel rooms come equipped with air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, coffee makers, safes, and ironing boards.

Most nights at the Luskin are currently sold out. But see below for information about three other hotels a brief walk or shuttle ride from the Luskin.

Or check the Luskin to see if rooms have become available.

Should you wish to reserve your room for additional nights outside of our PAMLA block (before Thursday night, November 10 or after Tuesday night, November 15), you will need to call the Luskin, and ask for a room reservation at the PAMLA rate: 855-522-8252. Do be sure to identify yourself as part of PAMLA, so as to receive our PAMLA rate.

For other reservation inquiries, you can also call the Luskin at 855-522-8252 or email them at lcc-reservations@ha.ucla.edu.

Alternative ground transportation to/from LAX?

In addition to traditional car services, taxis, and ride-share options, you may consider these alternatives:

  • The most economical way to get to/from LAX is with Culver CityBus Line 6 or, when applicable, the faster Line 6 ‘Rapid.’ This works best if you’re going to the airport with no more than a small, lightweight carry-on bag or suitcase as there is no storage for luggage on board.
  • Shuttle2LAX partners with major transportation companies to sell seats on shared ride shuttles that would otherwise be empty, saving passengers up to 80 percent off typical taxi fare. You will be on a shuttle with up to 9 passengers and make between one and four stops on the way to or from the airport.
