Lodging:

It seems you will get better rates by booking through a service rather than contacting hotels directly:

After visiting local hotels, our top recommendation, where cleanliness, safety & convenience meet affordable price when sharing a room, would be Embassy Suites by Hilton. Suites in this hotel can sleep 3-4 people - - 2 in queen beds and 1-2 in a pullout sofa bed. Please contact dancegardenla@gmail.com if you would like help finding roommates! Full breakfast is included, as is a cocktail hour with drinks/hors d'oeuvres. Wifi is free in the lobby but 9.95 per day in the room.

800 N Central Ave, Glendale, CA 91203
embassysuites3.hilton.com
(818) 550-0828

 

If you want something a little more budget, but not quite as nice (still seemed clean and decent, but did smell a little smoky despite claiming to be a non-smoking building), you might choose the Days Inn Glendale.

Days Inn Glendale Los Angeles - $97-$120 - approx. 3.5 miles from DGLA
450 Pioneer Dr, Glendale, CA 91203
