Hotel and Travel Recommedations

Hotels
There are, as you would assume, quite a number of hotels in the immediate area. These, however, are all centrally located. There are closer hotels, but they are very expensive. There are no hotels in walking distance to the ceremony/reception.

Its a 4 star hotel - running at $159 per night (Premiere Room) plus $3 per night electicity charge (welcome to L.A.) and 14.1% tax per room. We have 15 rooms blocked off so mention "Mr. Ira Goldklang's Wedding". These rooms will be released on October 22.
Beverly Plaza Hotel              See the hotel
8384 West 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90048
(323) 658-6600
It's a 3 star hotel - running about $145 or so. We did *NOT* block off rooms since that would not save money for guests but would make the cancellation policy worse. It is recommended you book early.
Beverly Laurel Motor Hotel
8018 Beverly Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90048
(323) 651-2441
(800) 962-3824 (toll-free)
Its a motel - running about $70 or $80 per person. Don't expect too much, but the motel coffee shop is one of the trendiest places to eat in L.A.
Hotel Services: Fax, Parking (free), Pool, Restaurant. Room services Dataport. Microwave. Refrigerator. TV: cable.
It looks like a 1950s dive from the outside, and is priced accordingly, but the owners' artistic flare has turned the Beverly Laurel into one of the funkier motels around. Its location is good - close to the Beverly Center mall and West Hollywood - and the 52 rooms, although a tad tired, are made original by gold-and-black checked bedspreads, black vinyl chairs, groovy '50s tables and wooden headboards inlaid with arcane photos. In most rooms, one wall is painted cobalt blue. Some rooms have kitchens; all have microwaves and fridges. The adjoining restaurant, Swingers, is a popular breakfast and late-night spot. It's one of the best deals in town - especially for larger groups.
