MobiCom 2006 will be held at the beautiful Marina del Rey
Marriott. Modern and vibrant from floor to ceiling, the newly
renovated guest rooms and suites combine color, comfort and
style with flexibility and functionality. Accented by rich
mahogany and trendy updated patterns and light fixtures, the
Marina del Rey Marriott is truly unique. All the rooms feature
a French Balcony with views of the Pacific Ocean, local beaches,
the Marina, and the Santa Monica Mountains. The hotel's California
Ballroom, lobby, lobby bar, and restaurant have all been renovated
over the past year.
The hotel is located just across the street from a Marina (the
world's largest man-made harbor, with 12 acres of beach) and is
only three blocks from the start of the world famous Venice Beach.
There are more than 20 restaurants within a three block radius
of the hotel, in addition to bike, kayak, and skate rental shops,
boat tours, and miles of bike paths for everyone's enjoyment.

Los Angeles is easily reached by air through Los Angeles International
Airport (LAX). LAX is one of the largest airports in the US
and is served by many domestic and international airlines, with
flights from cities around the world. Though Los Angeles can
also be reached through alternative airports (see below), we
recommend LAX as it is very close (6 miles) to the MobiCom hotel.
Many options for ground transportation from the airport are
available, including taxis, shuttle services, or rental cars.
Getting around Los Angeles is easy if you have your own or a
rental car. If not, taxis are easy to find and can take you
anywhere you want to go.
There are four alternative airports in the greater LA area.
Burbank Airport (BUR) is just north of LA, about 25 miles from
the hotel. Long Beach Airport (LGB) is south of Los Angeles,
28 miles from the hotel, but only serves a few major airlines.
John Wayne International Airport (SNA) in Santa Ana, also known
as Orange County Airport, is further south at about 50 miles
from the hotel. Lastly, Ontario International Airport (ONT)
is directly east, 60 miles from the hotel.
On average, September is the warmest month of the year in Los
Angeles. Unless there is an unexpected change, expect sunny, summer
weather. Be sure to check back before the conference and look
at the 10 day forecast on weather.com.
