Embassy Suites by Hilton LAX NORTH
The Embassy Suites LAX NORTH is our new favorite hotel, and we are happy to be returning for Escapade 29. For the last two years, fans have enjoyed the free hot breakfast, free drinks, atrium space great for socializing, and Winnie the robot, who delivers towels (or even goodies from the convenience shop) to your room.
Less than half a mile from the airport and a mile from supermarkets and other useful shopping, our new con hotel is the kind of place you may not want to leave once you check in. Escapade always looks for ways to improve the convention experience, and we think the indulgences Embassy Suites offers will be a definite plus for you.
Big picture: the hotel's rooms open into a large central atrium, where you can enjoy a full breakfast each morning, and where the hotel hosts a "happy hour" with full bar from 5:30-7:30PM. All convention functions except the hospitality suite are on the ground floor and ADA accessible. They finished a beautiful renovation of their public spaces just last year!
