MacGathering location details
The Beverly Garland Holiday Inn
For convenience, here are a few mapping options to help you find our show.— Map •• — Directions from your location
There's plenty of parking at the hotel for $5 a day. For those staying overnight, parking is $9 and includes in and out priviledges.
Take a ticket at the parking gate, pay at the hotel desk, then use your payment validation to exit the parking lot.
There is also street parking.
The Beverly Garland Holiday Inn is just 1 mile from Universal Studios/CityWalk.
The Metro Red Line stops on Lankershim at the Universal City station, across from Universal Studios. Our hotel has a free shuttle from Universal to the hotel. We'll soon post the exact details of where you catch that shuttle. (A call may be necessary.) (Note: the Metro map linked above is not to scale: Highland is not east of Western.)
There are buses that stop at the Universal City bus stop. Details here soon.
The MTA Metro Trip Planner on the MTA's home page can help you find your way.
Note: The ads are here with the hope they'll provide more info on shuttle and limo services or about things your family can do in the area. They appear not to be doing this — please bear with this experiment.
The two best airports:
Tula, the hotel's own restaurant, is just steps away from the exhibit hall.
We'll either have a lunch buffet — just $8.95 including a standard beverage or menu selections that will provide great food, quickly, with comparable cost.
If you prefer to eat off-site, you'll find several eateries within a few miles in each direction.
Tula is open from 6am - 11pm.
Splash, the hotel's award-winning bar, is also right there. It's a great place to hang out at in the evening, spending social time with fellow attendees and perhaps our vendors and speakers. Splash is open from 6am - 11pm.
(Sorry, no Coffee Patio yet.)
After checking the online travel discounters, we arrived at an excellent price. For just $105 (+ tax), spend the night on-site, sharing your room with up to 4 adults. This price is for rooms with 1 king or 2 queen beds.
Along with each hotel night, you get one free 2-Day Seminar pass! (One per night, not one per room occupant. ) If you stay 2 nights with 2 people, that's 2 passes. Book the room by calling Laura 818-255-7491 and saying it's for the Mac Gathering (code MAC). Then send us your confirmation number and contact info.
