These directions may help you whether you drive or take public transportation to The Inn.
From any direction you come, it’s good to know that The Inn is in the first block west of Figueroa, in what is called the Downtown area, or North University Park. A landmark which most people know is the Auto Club headquarters on Adams Boulevard, which is one block to the south. The Inn is only a few blocks north of USC and a few blocks south of the convention center. Take any shuttle going Downtown; but be sure the shuttle is going first to downtown and not to Beverly Hills, Culver City, Pasadena, or any place else. If you use a taxi, make sure the fare is about $57.00. For two people or more.
Suggestion: As The Inn has no big commercial signs, give your driver the address only, not mentioning that you are going to a “hotel,” as drivers often speed past, looking for big signs while ignoring street numbers.
Warning: Beware of directions from the web as some leave out critical turns.
