Hotel Accommodations

Designated Hotel | Westwood | West LA | Airport Area


For each workshop, IPAM typically blocks rooms at a local hotel or hotels. Your invitation letter (if you are receiving funding) and the workshop's hotel accommodations and air travel page, which is linked to the program’s web page, provides instructions for reserving a hotel room. In order to retain our special rate, we encourage you to use the designated hotel for your workshop if at all possible. IPAM's designated hotels are marked with an asterisk in the list below.


Below is a complete list of moderately priced hotels and a few luxury hotels, grouped by location. Most of you will choose to stay near UCLA, in Westwood, which will allow you to walk to IPAM. We also list some hotels in West LA, Santa Monica, and Brentwood which require a longer commute. (Please see IPAM’s Transportation page for information on bus routes.) Finally, we provide information for a few hotels near the airport (LAX) for those who have early morning return flights.

These rates are current as of February 4, 2014. Rates may change without our knowledge. If you have IPAM funding, please note the amount you have been awarded for lodging on your invitation letter before booking a room.

For visitors who cannot easily walk from the hotel to IPAM, please note which hotels offer shuttle service, or contact your Program Coordinator for advice.
