The Varden Hotel independent hotel that sets itself apart for the cookie cutter corporate hotels one will see everywhere else. I have NEVER seen a staff better trained in the culture of SERVICE. Every associate I had contact with got service. One told me she felt it was an honor to work at the Varden. The modern decor is wonderful... More

Clean, compact minimalist feel to the rooms in this hotel. Happy hour was great, and it was close to the downtown area, so we were able to walk to restaurants. Price was fair and we would return! Staff were helpful, and very nice.

Very happy with location, very clean and tidy. Staff members Tracy and Andrew made things very easy and were constantly impressing us with there efforts in helping with our questions and requests, Andrews efforts in going out of his way to ensure we were enjoying our stay was 110% very impressed.

I stayed at The Varden Hotel for three nights in Long Beach, CA in July. I loved it there while on a business trip. Great location within walking distance of much of downtown and the harbor. Close to great restaurants and coffee shops. The hotel is small with all the comforts needed. I hope to be able to stay there... More

What a great place to stay! My Husband and I were attending a wedding in downtown Long Beach, did a little research and decided to stay at The Varden. We loved it! From the moment you check in they have excellent customer service. We were offered free bottled water and a quick tour of the hotel. There is also an... More

From the moment we walked in the door at The Varden we felt welcomed and completely comfortable. The staff greeted us warmly with complimentary bottled water and offered to store our luggage for our (very) early arrival. They were able to check us in early and made this a priority, calling us when our room was ready. Our room was... More

I am usually very prompt with reviews, but am late with this one! I stayed in late May for 6 nights. I needed an affordable accommodation close to the Long Beach Convention Center, and found The Varden online. A true boutique experience, but perfect for one person. The staff was helpful and pleasant from minute one. Parking is convenient and... More

This boutique hotel was a perfect alternative to the traditional box hotel. We flew to Long Beach for a weekend and selected this hotel because the traditional hotel where the larger event party was staying was fully booked. But we made a much better decision staying here. Small but very cozy, comfortable rooms appointed with sleek modernist decor was a... More
