The Doubletree is wonderful, especially the Marina View rooms. We have also stayed at the Crowne Plaza (when it was a Sheraton), but like the Doubletree much, much more.

We stayed at the Hyatt/Long Beach which we booked through Celebrity. It was a lovely property w/several restaurants across the street and lots to do for a day/afternoon visit within walking distance. We went to the Aquarium of the Pacific. They also provided a transfer to the pier.

We stayed at a Doubletree Hotel in San Pedro on a marina. There was a beautiful view across the marina and restaurants close by (and in hotel). Service was good and they put up with all of us lounging around the lobby throughout the morning because Summit was late arriving and we couldn't board early. When they got word we could board, they transported us to the ship. I would stay there again.

Well, to be different - we stayed on the Queen Mary which is now a hotel
docked permanently in Long Beach. Got the room through my Entertainment Book for $ 99 which was a lot cheaper than through the
TA who really didn't know what to suggest. We flew in the day before
our 14 day full transit of the Panama Canal. The food in the casual
cafe was quite good - the service in the Steak House (or I should say - LACK of - caused us to walk out even before we were seated. Waited
for 20 minutes and no one came to seat us (they were NOT busy). Interesting to walk around the ship - our cabin was down the hall from
the suite Winston Churchill stayed in (we got to peek in). Huge boat
- they say it's haunted but we didn't do the tour to find out. Pretty easy
ride to the San Pedro pier - about 10 minutes I think. Also, I never
use the online hotel services - If I can't reserve with just my credit card
then I look elsewhere. I never prepay especially when my cc covers me
for a possible late arrival. :roll: :roll:
