Hey everyone, a volunteer just asked about transportation from various hotels in the area to the convention center. It's my understanding that there will be special CIV shuttles from the convention hotels to the center, but many of you may be staying at non-convention hotels. So here's a great place for you guys to post where you're staying and see if anyone is staying there and maybe you can hook up on transporation and such. Go to it!

I will be staying at the New Otani. I also remember hearing about there being a shuttle for this hotel (since it's in the C4 hotel block) but I haven't heard anything lately about it. I hope it's still true! I'll be at New Otani from the 23rd to the 29th with my two sisters. I'm still hoping for the shuttle info though...

My biggest worry is parking! I will be staying with my daughter and her fiance at their Loft in Hollywood (just three blocks from Grauman's Chinese Theater).

I will be staying at the RAMADA WILSHIRE CENTER at 3900 Wilshire and I have rented a car. I have space for 2 more people...I am happy to carpool if you all split the $12 parking fee with me. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif I got onto cheaptickets.com and for $120, I rented a car for the week. It can make Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs, too...what a deal!

I am staying with a group at the Historic Mayfair, 1256 W 7th St, Los Angeles, CA 90017 from the 23rd til the 29th. I am not sure about the shuttle service from there at this point.

Darthdaner sounds great.I would be more than happy to split it with you.I am not sure how far that is from where I will be.I would be happy to pay the parking fee and give you some gas money too.I want to get there pretty early every morning to buy exclusive items.With the volunteer pass we will be able to get in early each day.Are you attending the movies on WEns.?

DJKNOPP...why don't you Mapquest it and see how far it is from my hotel. We can see if it will work or not that way. Are you one or two people?

I'll arrive in LA on 5/18 but from 5/22 to 5/29, I and two others are staying at the Sheraton Los Angeles Downtown, 711 South Hope Street. Hopefully there will be a shuttle from my hotel. Where are the shuttles located? Anyone know?

GenCon hasn't published any info yet about the shuttle. However, your hotel is a straight shot from the convention center on the Metro (trains); the 7th Street Station is "right there."

I'm staying at the Radisson Midtown. They do have a shuttle service to the convention center, it runs from 7 to 7. I also have some information about airport shuttle service. I found a couple of places, Super Shuttle 1-213-688-0444 or Express Shuttle. I'll post that number. Expresss said they had a package deal for arrival and depature if you pre-pay. If you call either place make sure you have the zip code for your hotel, for rate information.

I think that's probably going to be a bit too far. Plus, I have 2 other people with me that I have to coordinate all of this with. If you were closer it would be no problem!! Sorry!! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

I just know from the ForceCast that the shuttles are supposed to be running 24/7 for the hotels that are in the C4 block. Luckily, my hotel (New Otani) is on the list so no worries here about getting to and from the hotel/LACC.

my hotel is 1 mile away Formly Known as the Guest House International Inn and Suites, It is now the Roadway Inn, But i will be using the Local Bus metro. It is only 3.00 for a Day Pass. Nice thing about this is I can take the bus any where throughout the Day for the one time price.
Los Angeles Metro (http://www.mta.net/default.asp)

that might help alot of you out.
