I normally just book the same hotel as the conference but, thankfully, this time it was full and I need an alternative. I found The Varden nearby and decided to check it out. It would give me an opportunity to get a walk in and some sunshine everyday on my way to the conference anyway. It was a wonderful experience.... More

I came across the Varden by chance. When my conference hotel was sold out of the rooms, I was forced to look for the alternative. A hotel reasonable priced in short walking distance to my conference site and dining. There was The Varden-Boutique Hotel. Sounded intriguing. When I arrived at the hotel, it already felt like home. Even before completing... More

The staff went above and beyond to make me feel welcome. You don't find this kind of personal service at any chain hotel. Walking distance to restaurants and convention center. Very clean rooms Will definitely stay there again.

Took us to our room, took my bag for me, showed us how to use the air conditioner. Explained about breakfast, provided maps. Now... most know this is a boutique hotel and the... More

I gave this hotel all fives and I'll tell you why. I had already read many great reviews which also tipped me off to some of the hotels quirks. So I wasn't at all surprised at the small size of the rooms or the small showers. I looked at it as the charm of an old but renovated hotel. I... More

Value compared to other LB hotels is 5 star. Location is ok too... Quick walk or taxi to convention area. Really friendly service from start to finish. Other hotels should take notice. Thank you guys. The coffee/tea area with breakfast was really comforting & is such a nice touch. The room was small & the bathroom even smaller but it's... More

It is just a short walk to the very pretty waterfront with many gorgeous restaurants and shops. Although a small hotel its boutique style... More

This Hotel will not remain a Long Beach secret for long! Our small but impeccable room was very stylish, clean and comfortable. From the room service staff, front desk lobby staff to the owners themselves were gracious, attentive, friendly and highly professional. The staff would greet you by name, asking about your day, making suggestions for dining, transportation or entertainment.... More

Wanted to race the Long Beach triathlon so we decided to spend the weekend there. I decided for the Varden Hotel for the reviews I found in this website. The Hotel is perfectly located, short walking distance from all the restaurants and a convenient short bike ride to the transition area. Yes the room was small but smartly designed to... More

I stayed here one night while helping my cousin move to Long Beach for school. The reason I booked this hotel was because of all the great reviews on here and I can say I was not disappointed. The staff truly makes you feel welcomed. You can tell that they take pride in their work. There's complementary tea, coffee, and... More
