More about the Hotel and Local Amenities:
We are holding rooms at the Redondo Beach Hotel at a special rate of $140/night rate; we have limited rooms. This is a slow time so rooms should still be available if you wait, but at a higher rate. Let us know your exact dates right away so we can put your name on one of the rooms.
Training will also be held at the Redondo Beach Hotel, training room has lots of windows and a private balcony.
Hotel serves continental breakfast. Otherwise meals are not included. All rooms include fridge and microwave, wi-fi.
Car is not required. 7 mile taxi ride from LAX airport, about $25 depending on traffic.
Redondo Beach Pier is across the street, watch the short YouTube video above.
We'll be there in the much less busy off season, but will likely still have some beautiful weather. Some of the class time will be on the beach, and we'll try to adjust some of our break time on nicer days.
Whole Foods Market is 3 blocks, many restaurants are nearby.
Fun Fact: This previous Best Western Hotel was recently closed for a year and completely refubished (today's zoning would not allow a brand new Hotel so close the beach).
