I stayed for a week in Varden.
It is an old building, which was restored few years back, but not totaly reconstructed. So one might hear squeking of stairs and catch old smell of moist cascade or smth alike.
So it appeares nice and coisy. Bed and pilows are comfortable.
Staff is very nice and friendly gladly answer all questions and help with everythig.
We were able to get into our room early. The food was good. Loved the complex and views across the bay. It was one of the best hotels we have stayed at in a long time. Thank you for booking our stay there! IT exceeded our expectations!
Looking forward to many good future deals through Expedia!
To be honest is great place to stay . The room was big for us that live in San Diego to stay in long beach it was a great place We just had an small issue in the bathroom a soon we got in the room that shower was not working but we got it fix right a way
Staff couldn't be faulted for their replying to questions, but they could have been more warm and welcoming. (Both the Night Clerk, and the Morning clerk appeared to be Chinese) The hotel has their own Shuttle Bus to the Cruise Ships in San Pedro. BUT, next Time we would probably stay in a hotel closer to the Aquarium and the lovely restaurants and waterfront walkway, or a hotel close to the shops. This hotel is definitely not a place to stay if you are on your own if you enjoy going for walks! (It definitely felt a bit "dangerous" out walking in the evening, even though it was daylight.) From reading the information online, I was disappointed that we were so far from everything.
Long Beach, with its immense port, is a hub for commerce and leisure on the Pacific. Freighter ships haul imported goods, pleasure cruises depart for Catalina Island, and the Queen Mary, the storied trans-Atlantic liner, is moored in the city’s bay. The Aquarium of the Pacific is nearby. At night, downtown’s Pine Avenue strip and Belmont Shore’s Second Street are prime entertainment spots.
