Great location. Walk to Pine Ave, the aquarium, Shoreline Village. Within 2 miles of Queen Mary or you can take the free Passport bus. Front desk staff are so wonderful! Room was comfortable but needed a good dusting. Would definitely stay again.
We arrived early so room wasn't ready. Staff went out of their way to ensure we were looked after until we could get into our room. Relaxed in lobby - coffee, tea and fresh fruit available. Didn't make it to wine tasting in the evening though.
Stayed here for the convenience of location to the convention center. Very helpful staff, easy check in, nice valet people. We had 3 days at the convention center and the closeness made it worthwhile after being on our feet all day. Only down sides we had were the in hotel restaurant and our room layout. Our room was suppose to be a King Size bed, but instead we got 2 queen beds. We didnt complain however because after a full day of walking it sure was nice to have the whole bed to myself (my wife was not amused). The other issue was the restaurant down stairs, the food is extremely over priced and had nothing on there that we would have really eaten anyways (with the exception of steak, at the price of $47 - We walked down to the outlets and at at Outback and our whole mean combined was the cost of that steak).
The hotel is in a good location, with lots of restaurants nearby. Our room was newly renovated, very nice, I don't believe all rooms are renovated yet. Close to everything in town, the convention center, the aquarium, food, shopping, beaches all within walking distance or a short drive.
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.
