8 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

 

Were looking at taking one of the Hawaii Itinaries from Los Angeles with princess at the end of the year, think we fancy staying in Los Angeles for a few days before hand to get over the flight. anyone any ideas on where to stay it seems very confusing as there looks to be about 7 different districts!

 

we want to do the usual touristy stuff so anyone any tips on where to stay would really help!

 

thanks in advance everyone!

Good evening Harley.

 

We are booked next year with a Silverseas cruise out of LA and have extended the cruiseline's overnight hotel by 3 nights.

 

Having looked at it and did a bit of research it fitted the bill. It's the Intercontinental...

Maybe it will work for you with whatever hotel Princess place you in. Unless of course you are making your own flight arrangements.

oooh $363 per nightly rate the intercontinental, a little over our price range but gorgeous hotel. anyone any other ideas?

 

Thanks Harley. That is dollars though which currently at 1.64 to the pound ain't bad.

 

Have you tried Bookings.com? They have a good variety of places and do say they get you the 'best' rate.

 

But do try your TA through the cruise company.

I've stayed twice in LA. The first time was in my pre-cruising days back in the 1990's and we based ourselves in the Newport Beach area. I can't remember the name of the hotel but Newport Beach was a good base. Lovely beaches and restaurants on the doorstep and easy access to the rest of LA by hire car.

 

The second time was enroute to a Hawaiian cruise and stayed at an hotel at the airport. Celebrity Cruises organised it and our room had wonderful views over LA. Only there for one day and used taxis to get around. Again - can't remember the name of the hotel.

 

A trip the Venice Beach is a must. Very interesting. All kinds of people strutting around.

 

cheers

 

Harvey

Why not try Queen Mary? Mix the old with the new. We had 1 night on board when we toured California and it was a nice experience. I don't know if it has changed now, but guests were free to explore all the ship on an audio tour, including the engine room.
