Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Los Angeles Harbor Hotel
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 It was extremely outdated and there was a moldy smell in the room.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.
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
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 The rooms are outdated and worn.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
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
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
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.
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
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
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.
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.

Our flight to LA was pretty uneventful; it was just over three hours long. It was easy enough to get our shuttle to Anaheim. I felt grateful I wasn't driving, fast traffic, lots of it and a crazy criss-cross of roads and freeways. An hour later we were at our hotel.
We decided to walk over to Disneyland and switch our travel voucher for Disneyland tickets so we were organised for the morning. That led to ...
... so loud, and in Spanish. Carol could translate - but I didn't need it; I heard the word 'Diablo' and I was outta there! I ain't never been so quick to freak out in my life. She was casting away demons from people and what not. It went for about 2 minutes. Those Crazy Mexicans.
So we headed down Venice again. Even though this place put a dampner on my time yesterday, i still loved it here. The atmosphere is ...
... in a cab on an LA freeway. What's the speed limit? What lane should you be in? It's not a problem? Seat belts? Not a problem. We are flying. Weaving. Nobody toots and there are near misses all about. We get home and in the short ride the driver has become our best friend. He's high fiving us and we get our and make our way to the bar in the lobby and have a night cap. It's been a wicked start to a trip we are both going to remeber for a very long time. Signing off and more soon.. ...
... to find 90210 beach house, took photos and cycled back. Approx 20 miles. Felt had no energy but pushed on through, really pretty. Got back showered and packed then Brynne and I went to panera again for soup and salad. Had wine back at Brynne's then got uber to the airport. Had lots of time to kill so uploaded LA photos to facebook. Overall view of LA - really surprised me, I had stereotype of people ...
... laughs sharing stories about our families and work and trips! So glad we got together with them. And, Scott chose a great place where we had calamari, clams, pasta, and chicken! No, we only shared the calamari! The rest were individual entree orders! So, Fresno to LA was exciting in some not so desirable ways, ants, and desirable ways, Mart, Nancy, The Getty, Allison and Scott! Onto Encinitas and San Diego where we are right now! Reporting soon from here! ...
