LOVED out stay. A mix of business and pleasure. It was amazing. The staff was always trying to make us happy. Only things we didn't enjoy were the fires closing at 10 pm and the pillows in the rooms.
But it was great. Loved the space. The outdoor areas. The fresh warm cookies everyday that were handed to our kids. The infused waters different and fresh daily in the lobby. The marshmallow roasting kits upon check in and the courtesy shuttle. There is so much good to say. Will stay again.
We stayed here after a cruise and wanted to be close to downtown Long Beach. Even though they are going through renovations, the only time we saw this was going to the elevator. Great location, classy hotel and very comfortable.
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.
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.
