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 It was extremely outdated and there was a moldy smell in the room.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 The rooms are outdated and worn.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.

Today Dan and I left on a very long flight to Lisbon via Washington, DC and Geneva, Switzerland. We met up with my sister, Fredda Branyon in Lisbon where we will join our tour group of Portugal and Spain for the next 3 weeks. I also have a friend Julia Brown from Corona Del Mar, CA who is flying into Lisbon today and will catch up for a drink on Wednesday. This is my sister's first trip to Europe so we are excited to ...
... had a fun walk around Anaheim to find tea - a simple Chinese diner - food average but on holidays, doesn't matter. I walked with the girls to a local pharmacy to get some Nurofen - WELL, pharmacies in the US are different to ours. They sell everything - food, clothes, fresh food & ALCOHOL - a lot of it. Just another unique experience in the USA & why I'm loving it ...
We were lucky enough to get to stay with a really nice Fijian family in a mansion that looked like something out of a movie. The house was 4 storeys high and complete with a pool, basketball court and backing onto the neighbourhood golf course. The family were incredibly hospitable and we really enjoyed our stay.

Just to make the day a little interesting we had to change rooms at 11pm because the toilet decided to flood, dad was our hero.
Wednesday Mum and Dad allowed us to have the day off, we went to the outlet store shopping, it was stinking hot. We came home had a swim watched a little TV and went to dinner again at JT Schmid's
What a holiday so far,,,, Fantastic & Awesome
