Introducing the Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Hotel

Our NEW hotel for Costume College is the Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Hotel, located at 6101 W. Century Boulevard, Los Angeles, California 90045

Costume College has moved to a new hotel!  The Sheraton Gateway L.A. is a larger, more spacious hotel, with more classrooms, event space and hotel rooms. Located near the Los Angeles International Airport, the hotel is easily accessed off of  the 405 freeway for those traveling by car and a short shuttle ride (provided by the hotel) from the airport for those flying in. The Hotel offers an outdoor heated swimming pool, a fitness center, restaurant, a full bar and a Starbucks! We are excited to share the new space with you! 

Is it worth staying at the new hotel? Yes! It is absolutely worth it to stay at the hotel for the weekend. Much of your College Experience comes from the spontaneous things that happen during the run of College that are not on any schedule from impromptu discussions in the hallways to early morning chats over coffee before getting in line for Sunday’s Bargain Basement Sale.

Staying at the hotel allows you to:
  • Have a convenient place to change for the social events; Welcome Party, Friday Social, Gala, and/or  Tea.
  • Have a convenient place to store all the stuff you bring to Costume College and all the purchases you make from the Marketplace and/or Bargain Basement.
  • Enjoy the hotel's heated outdoor pool, Jacuzzis, fitness center, cocktail lounge, and restaurant.
  • Be within walking distance of an abundance of restaurants (see Getting Food article in the Registration Book for details);
  • Lets you relax and enjoy the weekend without driving home LATE or getting up extra early to make it to a class on time.

Please do not reserve more rooms than you will actually use.  If sharing a room with roommates please have only ONE person in the room make a reservation.
