Reserve now for "COPA": 9/night single/double (lowest LA rates)
NOTE: Despite my best efforts, the Custom Hotel has now closed our block
and is charging COPA folks 9 a night instead of 9 as arranged. It
is convenient to the meeting space at KJ's diner, and this is still a
low rate in LA. However, I did discover that the nearby Hilton Los
Angeles Airport ,5711 West Century Boulevard near LAX has a 9 rate
available. Call (310) 410-4000.
