These hotels are located near (walking distance) our house and the CSUF campus, where the memorial service will be held.  The Chase is the more reasonable of the two.  The Marriott requires a walk through a freeway underpass to get to our house.

Chase Suites:  2932 Nutwood Ave, Fullerton CA 92831    (657) 579-7400

A more expensive option is the Marriott Residence Inn, and a more affordable option is the Holiday Inn Express.  Both are a 1-2 miles from our house.

Holiday Inn Express:  118 East Orangethorpe Ave, Placentia, CA 92870  (657) 528-7778

You might try mentioning that it's for a death in the family.  We have no idea if this will help, but have found in the last week that many places have special rates associated with death.
