Universal joy

... We went on a bunch of rides. The lines were long but Universal keeps you entertained the whole time you are waiting. The rides are also very cool with lots of effects. The Mummy was a roller coaster in the dark and poor Y was so scared he cried. Other than that one he was a real trooper on all the other rides. The last ride we went on was Transformers and the line was so freakin' long I lost patience to wait on any other lines. We went on ...

The Realities of Travelling

... yes a major rip off that no local would pay but in terms of
actual money for us westerners it is often hardly anything) .
Remember to check on bigger things too like the current politics of a
country (strikes etc) and natural problems (typhoon etc) but stick to
official sites and bear in mind some websites can exaggerate at
times; ask a local/hotel staff and do what you feel comfortable with
whether that's sticking around or moving on quickly.

... We are all meeting outside the Cheesecake Factory at 6:30pm.

We all don't have sim cards to contact each other so we didn't find Steve and Helen until 7:15pm and thankfully we had a table ready for us. In that time we went to Topshop, Forever 21, Nike shop etc. The Grove is a retail and entertainment complex. It is very cute and darling. They have a mini bellagio water show in the square. Great shopping to be done there.

... alone in this beast!" But the man reassured me I would be fine and we just hoped for the best as I drove out of the car park. I got used to driving our bus pretty quickly and before I knew it I was an experienced American bus driver! We successfully mastered multiple lane changes, u turns, freeway driving, severe traffic and even a round about (this was the weirdest!) and made it to Coachella in one piece! Next post..

Short layover

My first impression of LAX is always how huge it is! The plane may have landed at 6.30 but it takes forever to get to the gate and then you walk for days to baggage claim! But despite all that it took us about an hour to get our bags and go through immigration and customs so not too bad. From there we caught the free shuttle, that does loops around to all the terminals for transfers, over to terminal 1 for ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Los Angeles Harbor Hotel

    Awful

    from

    The hotel lobby is nice but when we got to our room we couldn't believe it. It was extremely outdated and there was a moldy smell in the room. The bedding desperately needed to be updated. We tried to use the sauna but of course it was out of order. The room should have been about $60 a night at most.

    Enjoyed it

    from

    i just loved it..the rooms were beautiful, the bellman was very nice...he showed us to our suite and proceeded to show us the amenities included with the suite...i was very happy with it

    In need of a fix

    from

    I live in San Pedro and usually put our out-of-town guests there. The hotel needs to be updated. The rooms are outdated and worn. Not worth the price at all. If it wasn't for the cruise line business, I don't know how they would survive. Nice places to eat nearby. The staff was very nice.

    Good Value For The Money For a Pre-Cruise Hotel

    from

    This hotel is MUCH better than other reviewers said about it....we stayed there from Dec 18-22, 2004 pre cruise.. and the staff couldn't be any more accomodating. It does need updating but it's a great value for the price. We were missing a few small items promised to suite guests which were brought up to us quickly. When the room wasn't cleaned effectively the first day (dirty dishes were left and towels were missing), we were given a credit to our bill. When two hairdryers caused the power to go off, we were offered free breakfast buffet tickets for our inconvenience. The conceirge desk is helpful, friendly and responsive. Parking under the hotel is free and valet parking for a fee is available. Enterprise rent-a-car has a phone in the lobby and is located within blocks from the hotel. A free shuttle will take you to the cruise port and the port itself is visible from some of the third floor rooms and higher. It is located in a modest residential area and there's a great waffle house on 7th and Gaffey. The hotel is scheduled for rennovations mid January(2005) so check before you book. For a pre-cruise stay, the convenience and the price, it's worth it. We were very pleased.

    Shabby - not Chic

    from

    Hotel needs renovation. Carpets, beds, furniture, etc. look Brady Bunch era. Hotel gym is OK. The hotel is inexpensive. You get what you paid for. Front desk friendly but not very efficient.

    Sheraton Los Angeles Harbor Hotel

    from

    My husband and I stayed there for our wedding night 10/24/04, just a standard room since we were leaving the next morning to Catalina, we thought that since it had the Sheraton name it would be a nice place to stay, although the room was clean, it really needs updating, the bathroom was awful, it had missing hooks and above the sink you could see up through the ceiling, and it was dusty and dirty. I was asked how everything was at checkout and I told them I was sorely disappointed. I would not recommend this hotel or stay there again.

    TERRIBLE PLACE

    from

    I can't believe I played 350 dollars for this place for only three nights for a simple business trip. It was a total waste of money. Don't let the pretty Lobby photo fool you, the walls were very thin and you could hear everything from other rooms, people talking, the showers, and even a door being shut. The TV is a very old model and I had to turn it off and on three to four times before the picture would pop up. I ordered room service twice and still both times food was delivered semi cold and its way over priced. Then to top it off I had to stay an extra night do to schedule changes for work and the price I was originally charged for an extra night had then increased for no reason to 40 dollars more! Front desk is extremely rude and was no help and only proceeded to tell me I was wrong. OH and families should NOT stay here, it is in a very secluded and unsafe neighborhood. I would rather have stayed at a Motel 6. Save your money

    Not Worth It

    from

    Upon entering San Pedro, I knew the hotel was not going to be the greatest. San Pedro is not exactly the nicest city. Once we found the entrance and checked in, we headed to our room. You would not beleive what we found in our room. First off, the toliet did not flush, the shower was dirty. Then the TV was from the 60's, not exactly up to date. Now for the worst part of all, there was vomit stained onto the carpet. Not to mention the dirty comforter. My husband and I had to leave immediately. We informed the front desk of our decision and the women actually laughed! It's as if she knew how horrible the room was. I picked this hotel because of the Sheraton name, So don't be fooled. Thank goodness we left when we did!

    Tolerable for a short stay only

    from

    My husband & I stayed here for 2 nights prior to a cruise. Staying on the "club" level did not afford us the type of accommodations one would expect to find at one of the luxury chain hotels. About the best comment that can be made is that the "continental" breakfast that came with the club level room was decent enough. The air conditioning system was noisy & we used our sound machine to drown out the noise as best we could. This hotel is definitely in need of a good refurbishing. Also, the cab fares in L.A. are astronomical--if you plan to visit Disney, expect to pay anywhere from $60-70. On a positive note, the Acapulco mexican restaurant in the "Ports-of-Call Village" down the street from the hotel was excellent--outside of this restaurant, there was nothing to the "village"--it very obviously was a "once was" or maybe even a "never was"--many of the shops were out-of-buiness or didn't sell anything of interest--unless you just want to take a stroll along the waterfront, it's a waste of time.

    Hotel is fine for a short stay.

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Sheraton for 2 nights prior to a cruise. We booked the "club" level in hopes of having a nice room and some better service. No luck. The rooms were worn and the service was lack luster at best.

    If you plan on visiting Disney land be ready for a $60-70 fee to reach the park. All in all the best of a poor lot.
