The Westin brand rarely fails to meet my lofty expectations and the Westin Long Beach was no exception. This is a contemporary, business-friendly hotel conveniently located across the street from the Convention Center. However, I did stay on the top floor (although in a standard room) so my opinion might be slightly skewed. Nevertheless, the room was spacious and the carpet was very clean. And this is no easy task given its proximity to the ocean. The bed was extremely comfortable and the appliances were well-kept. The bathroom had its signature Heavenly dual shower head and enough space to move around freely. There's ample underground self-parking in a gated lot underneath the hotel, making it convenient to get in and out.
My only issue was with the gym. This is where you could see the wear-and-tear from the ocean sea salt as the dumbbells and machines were a little rusty. The hotel needs to do a better job with the upkeep of the gym. Also, despite its convenient location across from the Convention Center, it is a tad far away from the beach. Definitely walkable, but will take you at least 10 minutes.
With all things considered, this is a solid hotel that exemplifies the classy Westin brand. I highly recommend this hotel if you are ever in Long Beach (which is a very underrated city by the way!)
