If you are talking about LA for the Mexican Riviera trip (which was great, by the way), we stayed at the Santa Monica Doubletree and it was very nice - the regular room was a suite - had a seperate living area from the bedroom and the bathroom was very large. We were switched to it by NCL because the Hilton was being renovated. It was within walking distance of the pier and lots of shops. The bus picked us up at the airport and took us to the hotel but it took forever for them to get everyone together. We should have just taken a taxi to and from the hotel.

Oh, I meant that it was next to the Santa Monica pier where there are all the carnival rides and such, not the pier where you'll board the ship. It is fairly far away and you'll need to take the bus transfer to it. A taxi would have been far easier to get from the airport to the hotel and vice versa and about as cheap from what we were told.

What city are you going from?? If it is LA then if you do a search on these boards you will find lots of suggestions for hotels in LA, LAX area, and Long Beach or San Pedro [where the port is]. The Coast Long Beach seems to be a CC favourite...
