Hotel and Travel


This page currently shows information for Escapade 34, our most recent in-person convention.

Information for our 2025 in-person convention (Escapade 35) will be available at a later date.

Embassy Suites by Hilton LAX North

Yes, we are back to our previous hotel: the Embassy Suites LAX North. The wide-open central atrium has been fondly compared to Ceres Station on The Expanse (without the subsequent death and destruction). It’s easy to spot friends (or potential friends) gathering in the lobby below.

Address: 9801 Airport Boulevard Los Angeles, California 90045
Phone: +1 310-215-1000

One half-mile from Los Angeles International Airport via free 24-hour shuttle (really!); within a mile of I-405 and I-105.

One Important Logistical Detail: There are two Embassy Suites near the Los Angeles International Airport. We are back at the Embassy Suites LAX North (not Embassy Suites LAX South).

Important Notes

  1. Double-queen suites have limited availability, so book as soon as possible!
  2. If you choose to book through the website, the link above assumes you want to stay 3 days before and 3 days after the convention. Use “Edit Stay” at the top of the page to select the days that you need.
  3. If you choose to book through the website, ignore the warning about the mandatory $12.92 daily charge. Escapade attendees who reserve through this link will NOT be assessed this charge. Unfortunately, it’s beyond the ability of our hotel staff to change the website.


The hotel has ADA accessible suites and public spaces are all wheelchair accessible, including the lobby, breakfast area, business center, restaurant, fitness center and pool. The underground parking garage has handicap parking with wheelchair ramps to access the elevators to the lobby.

Wheelchair Jimmy gives it a 4 out of 5 starts. Watch his video review at his YouTube channel.
