The meeting will be held at The Hilton Los Angeles Airport, 5711 West Century Boulevard (Tel: 1-310-410-4000).
The hotel is, as the name implies, situated next to the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). There are free shuttle buses to the hotel from the airport 24 hours and every 15 minutes (the buses are light blue and labelled "Hilton LAX"). A taxi to the hotel costs approximately $20.
The hotel offers all the amenities you would expect from a high-end hotel chain.
Alongside the conference centre that the ICANN meeting will be held in, there is also a business centre, an ATM, car rental desk (vital if you plan to travel about Los Angeles), foreign currency exchange, a laundry service, a concierge and a swimming pool.

Due to the overwhelming number of requests, the Hilton has made an additional block of 50 rooms available for meeting attendees at a special rate of $259 per night for a standard room, single or double occupancy.
