Default Port of Los Angeles-Hotel Suggestions?

Hi,
I'm trying to decide where to stay the night before my cruise in April. I'm looking for a hotel that either has a LAX to Hotel shuttle or Hotel to Pier Shuttle or both. I'm so looking forward to this cruise.

Carol

We've stayed at two different hotels. The one we liked best is the Crowne Plaza, Los Angles Harbor ( Crowne Plaza Hotel SAN PEDRO Hotels | LOS ANGELES HARBOR HOTEL | Welcome ). We also stayed at the Doubletree Marina San Pedro Hotels | Doubletree San Pedro California Hotel which was nice, but the food and drink prices were very high (IMHO).

Check the website's for more info. If I'm remembering correctly they both had shuttle's from LAX to the hotel and from the hotel to the port.

I'd recommend either.

Cool

You could always use the same hotel as Princess and use there shuttle to the port . Most hotels around LAX have an airport shuttle.

Thank you both. I've stayed at the LAX Marriott. Nice hotel. I thought it would be nice to stay someplace with a view. I'm going to try the Crown Plaza. Thanks again.

Hi Carol: we're thinking of booking the LAX Marriott because we're arriving on a Friday afternoon around 3:30 p.m., the day before we sail. The original plan was to book a hotel in San Pedro, but we were a little concerned about getting caught in rush hour traffic. Did you use a shuttle from the Marriott to the Pier or a cab?

I have stayed at the Marriott and then taken Super Shuttle 1800 BlueVan is the phone number to the pier. This time we are going to take super shuttle to the Crown Plaza at the San Pedro near the cruise terminal. They shuttle you over for free. I am going to go early so I can check in early.
