We stayed here for 3 nights and found the hotel to be good and clean but the overall location of Long Beach was pretty dead. We were disappointed that we thought we were getting a decent size room as the website pictures showed but instead had a tiny room with only room for 2 double beds.
The bathroom by comparison was huge with a great shower and probably the highlight of the room.
The staff in the hotel are amazing and a real credit to the place. They were friendly and approachable and nothing was too much trouble for them.
The hotel was great, super friendly staff, quick to accommodate needs. Room was among the cleanest I've seen (and I stay at a lot of hotels for work). Had a high sense of comfort. Great location in proximity to beach and Convention Center. Thank you for a great stay!
My sister, her son and I were scheduled to attend a conference at the Renaissance Hotel on Saturday morning. We decided it might be nice to arrive the day before to avoid having to make the drive in the morning from the Inland Empire to Long Beach. Wow, were we pleased! The hotel was great and the location was awesome. We weren't expecting to be within walking distance of the Pier. We took a nice walk and later came back to our comfy room to relax before our big day on Saturday. I would like to return for a weekend in the summer for a nice get away.
Great little hotel in the heart of Long Beach. Easy check-in, but beware if there are more than 3 people at reception area, it felt like staff are getting confused who to speak to first. A very friendly service, nevertheless. Room was very small, but cosy. Fine for one night and if you are living out of the bag, but would not leave much space if one needed to unpack properly. A double bed is just that - just big enough to accommodate two people. Shower/bathroom area is also small and cleverly concealed behind a sliding mirror door (great use of space!). Room and bathroom were both clean. The property has no lift, even though taking the bags upstairs wasn't a problem for us, it can be an inconvenience for others. To be fair, reception staff offered their help carrying our luggage. Adequate breakfast in the morning in a small area behind the reception. Parking (surcharge) is conveniently located next door to the hotel. Overall a nice experience for a short stay in central Long Beach. Would choose again if travel on my own, but for a couple it was a touch on a small side.
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.
