We arrived later at night since we were taking the ferry over to Catalina Island the next morning. The woman at the front desk was SO friendly!!! 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

We have just returned from a three week holiday in USA. Although we only stayed in Long Beach for Two nights we had such a lovely experience. We so enjoyed our time in this boutique hotel. 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

My boyfriend and I spent 5 nights there while we were visiting Los Angeles (since it was not the first time we visited L.A. we wanted to overnight in a different place than the usual Santa Monica or Hollywood district). As said in other reviews, it's true that the room is really small: the bed is teeny-weeny (my boyfriend is... More

The plus of this structure are the staff -always polite and willing to help- and the level of the service. Rooms are a little bit small but you have all the stuff you could need and a very confortable bed! They are also very quiet too. All considered, we had a nice experience!!

We had a very nice stay. Bed was ultra comfortable. Size of the space was just right and location was quiet and convenient to the Catalina Express Ferry and the hotel where the wedding we attended was held. Our local friends picked us up or we walked to all of our destinations so we didn't even need a car.
