We are returning to the Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Hotel

Located at 6101 W. Century Boulevard, Los Angeles, California 90045

The Sheraton Gateway L.A. is conveniently located less than one mile from the Los Angeles International Airport.  The 4-star hotel offers free, 24-hour shuttle services to and from the terminals, helping you minimize stress and streamline your travel. For those traveling by car the hotel is easily accessed off of  the I-405 freeway. Additional amenities include a resort-style outdoor pool with several private cabanas, a fitness center, several restaurants, a new small cafe, and bars specializing in California cuisine and craft cocktails! 

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 Costume College experience comes from the spontaneous things that happen during the run of Costume 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 outdoor pool, fitness center, cocktail lounge, restaurant, and cafe.
  • 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.
