The boyfriend and I stayed at this awesome hotel after a day at Catalina Island (Catalina hotels were too expensive for us) for my birthday weekend. It's a beautifully restored historic hotel in the heart of downtown Long Beach. The rooms are small but remodeled so beautifully that you won't notice. I liked the high-end modern furnishings and all-white interior. It was a comfortable stay and the location is great for walking to restaurants. The staff were as friendly and helpful as it gets. We checked in and were greeted with a glass of wine from the nightly free wine tasting (my kind of place!). I liked the modernist bathroom and giant sliding mirror door. This would be a good room to do fashion photography. Or just some cool Instagram pics. We met the owner the next day and he was very hands-on and friendly and gave us breakfast eating recommendations. There is a complimentary breakfast of muffins, coffee, juice and yogurt. If you want to stay in downtown Long Beach and stay in style, I recommend the modern Varden hotel. The room rates were good, too.
