Luskin Conference Center

425 Westwood Plaza
Los Angeles, CA, 90095
USA

Note: All conference activities (except where noted) will take place at the Luskin Conference Center.

We expect over 1200 attendees at the Los Angeles conference. UAA normally contracts for 350-400 hotel rooms (which protects UAA from undue financial liability), since many attendees seek lodging on their own. RESERVE YOUR ROOM TODAY!!!!!  Reservations are free and can be adjusted within a hotel’s cancellation period.

Warnings from LA-based colleagues are consistent: a short distance from the conference hotel does not equal a short travel time. In LA, traffic congestion on both freeways and surface streets means that commutes (by car or bus) are often twice as long as that in other cities. Also, please avoid walking any distance that involves going under or over a freeway. Such walkways are extremely hazardous.

Special Note Regarding Luskin Conference Center: As of January 11, certain nights at the Luskin Center are not available online using the UAA reservation link because the reserved room block for those nights is full. However, the hotel will accept reservations by phone for rooms outside of the UAA block, as long as space is available. To contact the Luskin Center, call the reservations line: 855-522-8252. Provide the hotel representative with the UAA conference code 190421UA OR say that you are part of the Urban Affairs Association group.

Make a Reservation by Phone

 

Reservation by phone has historically resulted in a great deal of frustration for conference attendees due to inconsistent rate quotes. Therefore, we strongly advise you to use the online reservation method (please see above) so that you receive the appropriate group rate.

Help / Support

 

Important: UAA does not make hotel reservations for attendees. However, if you encounter any problems while trying to make your reservation, contact: events@uaamail.org with a detailed message about your issue (e.g., dates you are seeking, type of room). The more details you provide us, the better we are able to assist you.

Note About Hotel Rates & Availability

 

The hotels chosen for UAA conferences must meet certain criteria. The most important requirements are: 1) good quality meeting space, and 2) a highly-accessible downtown location. In order to house the various activities of the conference under one roof, we search for properties that are multi-purpose in nature. These hotels are rarely the least expensive. Our goal is to provide a high-quality meeting space that meets the professional needs of our attendees. UAA enters into a contract each year to provide a specific number of rooms at a discounted rate for that property. By choosing to stay at the conference hotel, you are helping UAA to keep other conference costs down, which allows us to better control registration rates.

Please remember that once the contracted room block is filled, UAA cannot guarantee you a room at the discounted prices. The hotel may choose to provide additional rooms beyond the contracted room block, but this is subject to availability and may result in higher prices.

UAA avoids entering into multiple hotel contracts. Why? Because hotels require a guaranteed minimum revenue level from any group block. UAA cannot make such commitments to more than one property without assuming a high level of financial risk. We understand that some attendees must operate within tight budget parameters. We respect the right of any attendee to seek cheaper rates outside of the conference hotel. Do keep in mind that the conference hotel offers a number of advantages that may not be available at other properties. By staying at the conference hotel you have maximum opportunities for networking, not to mention the convenience of a simple elevator ride to sessions and meal/social events.

Room Sharing Information

 

If you are on the conference program and would like to be added to the UAA Conference Roommate Locator Directory, you may do so by completing and submitting our online roommate directory submission form.

Online Roommate Directory Submission Form

UAA is providing this service as a courtesy to its conference attendees. UAA bears no legal or financial responsibility for the outcome of your lodging arrangement(s) and/or the outcome of your interaction with any other person with whom you choose to share lodging. Any agreement you may enter into is a private matter solely between or amongst the involved lodgers.

The information that you submit for inclusion in the directory will be shared with other individuals who are in the Roommate Locator Directory via a weekly email that will be circulated by a staff member in the UAA Executive Office.
