    RESORT INFORMATION: The Four Seasons Hotel Westlake offers a spa and wellness center, fitness center, indoor & outdoor pools, activity lawn and arcade, salon and barber shop. The hotel has the Onyx restaurant open for dinner on Friday & Saturday. The Coin & Candor is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner until 10 p.m. The resort has 24 hour in-room dining. Stir provides light breakfast and lunch and open until 5 p.m.

    For our group only, the hotel will open up Prosperous Penny each evening from 9 p.m. to midnight. No other hotel guests will be using this room except TSLA members. There is a terrace for overflow. Prosperous Penny is decorated with classic blues, warm woods, and brass accents, the hideaway is reminiscent of a swanky speak-easy. Drinks are at your own expense.

    TRANSPORTATION: You can reach Four Seasons Hotel Westlake by flying into the LAX International airport or the Burbank airport. LAX is approximately 1 hour from the resort and the Burbank airport is 40 minutes. All major airlines fly into LAX and most, but not all will fly into Burbank. The resort recommends KLS for private sedan rentals (www.klsla.com) and EcoCab is a great local provider in the area (www.conejovalleyecocab.com).

    GOLF TOURNAMENT: We are not able to host a golf tournament this year due to the cost rising a great deal to host a tournament, plus courses would not do a shotgun start for us. We will try to host again in 2023. However, please go to the Four Seasons Hotel Westlake website to find information on nearby courses in order to book on your own.

    KID'S/TEENS FOR ALL SEASONS: Currently open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., but it is not staffed, so you have to stay with your younger children if they use this room. Teens may be on their own, as they have a separate room to use. Rooms will be refreshed and cleaned each day.

    SPA/WELLNESS CENTER: Experience the Four Seasons Westlake Spa & Wellness center. This is the largest spa for Four Seasons. Open each day. Daily classes are offered and spa treatments may be booked. Please call 818-575-3000 in advance to make a reservation as they may be sold out by the time you arrive.

    SPOUSE EVENT: Join us for a cooking demonstration of appetizers in the wellness kitchen at the Four Seasons Hotel Westlake. There will be recipes to take home. This event is designed for all spouses. Hostess this year is Katrina Kotrla. The spouse event will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon on Monday, July 18th. The spouse event is limited to 27 spouses, so be sure to sign up when you register. Due to the limited number we are treating this as an optional group activity, so you will need to pay the additional fee to attend.

    There will be giveaways, including $100 cash and a $50 American Express gift card, plus two wellness center cookbooks, just to name a few! Please provide an email for your spouse on the registration form, so they may be contacted directly.

    GROUP ACTIVITIES: A separate registration form will be provided later for optional group activities. The form will provide descriptions and pricing.

    CONCIERGE: The resort has a concierge desk located in the main lobby. They can assist you with dinner reservations, local activities, transportation, etc. You may contact them at concierge.westlake@fourseasons.com. Or you may call the hotel at 818-575-3000.

    TEMPERATURE: The high in the summer will be in the low 80's for the daytime. The evening temperature will be in the upper 50's.

    PARKING: Valet parking is provided at $32 per day, which is a reduced rate per our contract, so please make sure you are charged the correct amount upon checkout. Self-parking is also available at $21.

    EXTRA EVENTS: If you plan to host an event during the TSLA conference, please be sure that your event does not conflict with any TSLA sponsored event. Four Seasons Hotel Westlake concierge would be happy to assist you scheduling any off-site dinners.

    TEXANS UNDER FORTY: Please plan to participate in the private reception for the TUF group on Sunday, July 17th at 6:00 p.m. There will be door prizes.
