Conference Housing

Freehand Los Angeles

416 W. 8th St. Los Angeles, CA 90014 | (213) 612-0021

Conference participants have the option to stay at our conference hotel for a low rate. You will need to make your own reservations with the hotel directly.

We have reserved shared rooms to accommodate groups of fours and sixes. You can reserve a single bed or purchase multiple beds in a Shared room. All King rooms that we blocked off for our conference at a lower rate have been booked. Please contact the hotel directly for availability of other King rooms and room rates.

Note that Freehand is reserving conference housing per bed, so you can only book one bed at a time. If you want to purchase an entire Shared room for a group, you will book each of the beds individually. Our rooms are available from September 13 through September 16. If you want to come in earlier than the 13th or stay later than the 16th, you need to call the hotel.

There is valet parking available for $44/night with in & out privileges, and a public parking garage next door on Olive Street as well.

The hotel is a 30 minute walk or 9 minute drive from LA Trade Technical College.

Book your room today! Deadline for all reservations is August 13, 2018.

Book a Shared room - $40/bed without taxes (Group code: DEM0913)

Please note that the only rooms currently available are 4 person shared rooms. Additionally, the rooms on the hotel’s website are listed as “Bed in Shared Quad: FEMALE.” This is incorrect - the hotel has assured us that they can accept guests of all genders, and can assign guests to gendered rooms upon request. We apologize for any confusion, and please contact conference@institute.coop if you have any questions.
