GC Delegate Tips

Some tips for GC delegates arriving tomorrow or later tonight:

  • If you're driving:
    • The hotel has 2 pullouts for unloading your luggage:
      • On Flower Street (entrance to lobby level)
      • On Figueroa Street (entrance to 2nd floor)
    • Hotel parking is valet only.
      • This means handing over your keys to the valet parking people.
      • If you prefer to keep posession of your keys, park in one of the nearby parking garages. There's a list in your GC materials.
    • If you're parking at the hotel, unloading at the Flower Street entrance is a little easier than the Figueroa Street entrance.
      • Remember to unload everything, since you'll have to deal with the valet service to get so much as a book out of your car.
      • After you unload, pull forward to the underground parking garage entrance marked valet only.
  • A completely unscientific spot survey suggests the hotel rooms all have:
    • A refrigerator
    • A laptop safe in the nightstand


Air quality is decent for downtown LA. There's no smoke smell so far, though there's enough in the atmosphere to turn the sun red when it's low in the sky. The weather forecast calls for clear and smoky conditions tonight, and sunny and smoky tomorrow. The Station fire is at 147,418 acres as of the last report, and InciWeb shows an estimated containment date of September 15.
