“Great hotel for dog lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I booked this hotel through Expedia for a great rate. I read that they allow dogs up to 40lbs which helped me pick this hotel. We brought our 6 month old pitbull puppy and had no problems. They even brought us a complimentary dog bed. I thought that since we had a dog we would get a room in the back of the hotel but when we got to our room it had ocean views, was right by the elevator and beautiful. All the staff were very sweet to our dog and great to us. I would recommend anyone who wants to travel with their dog to stay here! And there is Rosie's Dog Beach about 10min away!

I was in LA for a week for work and as my office is south of LAX, I thought Long Beach would be a great area to stay without an hour+ long commute each day. Overall I was happy with the choice and the Westin is always a safe bet. From the little I got to see of Long Beach, it is probably one of the nicer hotels in the area, although I had trouble easily finding where the beach actually was. That's definitely my fault as I spent more time sight-seeing then hunting down where the beach was (honestly probably wasn't too far, but didn't seem like walking distance). Nice rooms and great staff. Only complaint about the room is that the bathtub was definitely showing some signs of wear without being as clean as it could have been and the shower was very difficult to get going properly as the pull knob nearly yanked the tub spigot out of the wall.

Room Tip: Ask if any rooms facing the ocean are available. I did not (didn't think about it) and wished I...

Check-in was easy and pleasant until we were told that they were going to charge us $18.00 a night for parking. This was never mentioned anywhere in the reservation clause or anywhere on the website. Parking was underground and there was a lot of it but I really don't think $18.00 a night for parking is reasonable... The rooms were very clean but the power of the air conditioning unit was poor it barely blew out any air and it actually took a long time to cool off the room... The double beds were more fitted for 1 adult instead of 2 adults but were comfortable. Shoreline Village was about a 10 minute walk from the hotel, there was a 711 around the corner as well as a Wells Fargo Bank with an ATM 1 block from the hotel on the same side of the street...

Although we have “daily parking fee mentioned” in our General Information webpage, we apologize for not clearly stating the price. We appreciate your stay with us and hope to welcome you back so that we may be able to meet and exceed your expectations.

The Westin is my choice hotel. This one was just an okay one. Seemed dated, however the heavenly bed was heavenly as was the shower. Hallways dirty. Our room was far from elevators.. It's a flight crew type of hotel.

Room Tip: If you cannot walk far, ask for room near elevators.

Thank you for your review. Your loyalty to the Westin brand is much appreciated. Although we are glad you stayed with us we are disappointed to hear about the condition of our common areas as we have undergone a recent renovation. We will take this review as an opportunity to review our current spaces as well as retrain our housekeeping staff.

The Westin was a lovely hotel however everything was extra. The Internet cost money, there was no breakfast included, we had to spend $8 for 2 eggs at breakfast and that didn't include coffee. The housekeeping service was poor. Dirty glasses left in the room, towels not replaced when removed, and just general sloppy housekeeping. The staff was pleasant and helpful but I was not impressed.

Another older hotel, but very well maintained and updated.
Good sized rooms with comfortable furniture, and importantly, an excellent bed. Good bathroom amenities too.
It is very close to the Convention Centre and to the main Restautant strip (two blocks) as well as other city quarters.
It has all the facilities; restaurant, bar, shop, gym, pool.
One small downside, the main lobby air conditioning was very cold during our stay. It was too cold to sit without a coat or such like.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the building. Better outlook.
