We stayed there last April and agree with everything Mr/Mrs/Miss Jones has said. It is situated in a busy area but the rooms are very quiet. We only stayed one night so didn't have much time to explore the area for eateries so we used the hotel restaurant which was very good. Enjoy your cruise - the Panama Canal is fantastic - being an engineer, my husband was in his element!!!
I stayed there in 2001 just for one night. The hotel was super. Decoration and cleanliness could not be faulted. Bedrooms spacious and clean. Our hotel overlooked the runway, so the children were entertained all evening and we were not disturbed by any noise!!! We were advised not to walk out of the hotel after dark due to the location. There is a lovely restaurant and the staff were helpful. Enjoy your stay.
Hi, LA is great, very busy but great, its a compact place so all the sights are easy to do, just busy..
Go to marina del rey, its beautiful, the worlds largest/deepest man made marina, rigth near venice beach. google marina del rey.
Hi we were there at Christmas, food was good in the hotel no need to go looking, we had breakfast before we were picked up to go to the cruise terminal, buffet style eat all you like. The hotel is a long way from Hollywood Boulivard but we went anyway for around $60 dollars in a cab. Room was clean and we had a corner one on the 9th floor could also see the runway very interesting only got woken once in the night.
Thank you for your info, I can't wait- do you remember how long the transfer from the hotel was to the ship, With thanks Dee,.
Depending on the traffic anything between 25 mins and 40 mins not too long at all and the coach driver gave us a running commentry all the way pointing out places of interest. Have a lovely time, wish it was me going again.
