The best part about these pics and helpful posts about the LACC is that not only will they benefit us for C4 in 2007, but they will also come in handy for C5 and C6 as well, since the LACC will be hosting them in the coming years.

Once C4 has completed, I hope we can store all of these helpful posts in an 'Archived' section on the Rebelscum Forum for future reference when C5 and C6 roll around.

Good job to all who have supplied the extremely helpful info, and keep up the outstanding work!

The NEWBIE List is very useful. I like being prepared. Especially since this will be my 1st ever Star Wars Celebration and I plan on having my Padawan (9 Year Old Son) in tow. THANK YOU>

How much are hotel rooms and are there any rooms still available at a decent price?
Check the link for the hotel blocks reserved for CIV contained in your registration e-mail from Gen Con to see if any rooms are still available and for what price. I checked a few days ago just for the heck of it, and there were still rooms left at multiple hotels that were less than a mile away from the LACC.

EDIT: Here is the Gen Con hotel link: http://www.gencon.com/2007/swciv/info/travel.aspx

My hotel code still doesn't work... says I have to wait 24 hrs...

are the rates discounted once you have a hotel code from the amount listed in the hotel list link?

someone mentioned c5 and c6 already.I was wondering if once Indy finishes construction on its convention center expansion if it wont move back there?I hope so this trip to LA has been expensive so far.The room rates and transportation is a joke compared with Indy. Either way though any guesses on the next year,I figure an Empire 30 year would be great.

I booked a room in hollywood due to it being cheaper and receiveing better reviews from previous customers but it seems getting to the convention wich is only 8 miles away is going to be almost impossible.

Dude, in LA traffic? 8 miles could easily take an hour. Seriously, no shuttles will be running up there. You need to see about getting in the list of hotels in the downtown area.
