The Western History Association is committed to making our conference accessible for all. Please see details below for an accessibility guide to Los Angeles and to steps we'll take toward improving accessibility.

More coming soon!

Planning Your Trip


Out-of-state visitors to the conference will fly into Los Angeles International Airport. You can find the accessibility guide for the airport HERE.


Planning on exploring the city during your trip? Los Angeles provides a resource guide for accessibility that you can visit HERE.


The WHA is closely monitoring the ongoing public health situation and recommends getting fully vaccinated at least two weeks prior to the conference. Masks will be available at the registration desk for those who wish to wear one.

The Westin Bonaventure


There is only one elevator that goes to the second floor; this elevator is located behind the check-in desk on the first floor.


We have a dedicated nursing room on the lobby level. It is located right outside of the lower lobby meeting rooms and is labeled as the Mother's Room.


Gender neutral bathrooms will be located on the 2nd floor outside the California Ballroom. There are (2) sets of bathrooms (1 on each side of the ballroom).
