I have stayed at the Holiday Inn-- when I flew to LA and it was nice. We just drove down and stayed at the Sheraton-- last month---they have a park and cruise special which was very convenient to use-- especially since the cruise was for 10 days---it inclued the room - champagne and breakfast buffet-- and roundtrip shuttle to the port--
You might want to get a AAA book and look at whats available and suites your needs.

I enjoy staying at the Sheraton. If you drive, they have a park n sail package that allows you to keep your car in their covered lot at no charge! What you save in parking, will almost pay for your hotel room.
