UPDATE: Millennium Biltmore for $187/Night Prepaid AAA Rate

This spring join MAX in exploring the revitalized and transformed downtown Los Angeles (DTLA).  Over the last twenty years, downtown LA has transitioned to be a vibrant cultural destination with the city’s most exciting restaurants, a slew of new indie shops, and a vibrant Art District.

On the last weekend of March, join event champion and travel leader Phil Carberry in exploring this dynamic neighborhood.

The weekend will be centered at the elegant historic Millennium Biltmore hotel, set in the heart of LA’s vibrant cultural district.  All planned group events will be within walking distance of this hotel.

Friday evening meet with your fellow travelers for drinks and dinner.  If you can arrive by mid-afternoon on Friday, start the weekend with a visit to The Broad, LA’s most in-demand contemporary art museum.  Be sure to reserve a free admission ticket (click here for available times and reserve a ticket and visit here for tips to make the most of your visit).

On Saturday join your fellow travelers and take a walking tour of downtown LA.  See Angels Flight, the shortest railway in the world, the architectural landmark Bradbury Building, and many other cultural and historic landmarks.  Join the group again on Saturday evening for drinks and to hear about everyone’s day and their exciting finds. 

Join the group for Sunday brunch before you head back home or head out to explore more of Los Angeles.

Phil Carberry will be heading to Palm Springs on Sunday March 24th before heading to DTLA on the 29th.  Phil can provide information on a discounted hotel option for fellow travelers interested in visiting Palm Springs before the trip to DTLA.

This will be a book-your own trip in which you book your own travel, hotel, and tours.  That allows you to decide whether to stay at the Millennium Biltmore or at one of the many hip boutique hotels in the area.  You can join the group for as many or few of the activities as you would like.  Afternoon cocktails provides an opportunity to catch-up with your fellow MAX travelers and hear what everyone did that day. 

Currently, if you register on the Millennium Biltmore hotel website, a two night stay, March 29th - 31st , with a prepaid AAA rate costs $374, $187 per night.

The fee to MAX for Phil’s efforts to arrange and lead this trip is $25 for dues-paying members and $40 for non-members.
