“unique hotel in long beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Blast fom the past as you walk into the lobby through a a wooden door that is hinged in its center... its very 1960's funky chic... very friendly and helpful staff..rooms have a teriffic views of downtown long beach from across the waterway and views of the queen maya..oops queen mary.. beds are very comfortable unless you are bald like me and the headboard is alittle chilly due to the stones set in the headboard... my only complaint would be that it took along time for the water to get hot....most enjoyabel hotel... also has an excellent restaurent Fuego...alfresco its its not too chilly great service there also and excellent food... overall the best doubletree i have ever stayed at....

Thanks for the great review. We are so glad you enjoyed the hotel and hope you come back again soon. We have added a clear tent cover on the Fuego patio so even on chilly evenings, you can enjoy the fabulous waterfront dining. Hope to see you again.

Right on the water and convenient to downtown as well as the boat to Catalina, which is why I discovered the Maya. The Maya is fun and very well done with multiple private seating areas inside and out...fire pits, waterfalls, curtained pool side cabanas, large balconies off the rooms, etc. The staff was friendly and efficient and the gym was impressive. Outdoor dining on the water side under a huge canopy was relaxing and delicious. In the evening, we strolled along the water through the park and dipped into the Queen Mary (at one time the worlds largest luxury passenge liner) which was really interesting. Our water side room was very quiet at night...only the sound of gently rocking boats in the marina. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: Waterside...the back side faces a road that seemed to be a bit noisy.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Maya for a night on our way to Catalina Island. It was fabulous! The staff was extremely nice and helpful, always there to accomodate your needs. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. Our room was big and roomy. Love the decor of the hotel! Lots of little comfortable sitting areas to relax and people watch. The grounds were beautiful and the views were awesome! Ate at the bar.....delicious food and wonderful margaritas!!! Walking distance to the downtown area and the Queen Mary. Will definitely be going back for a weekend!!!

Friendly, very accommodating staff and awesome skinny margaritas at the restaurant. This was an overnight trip with hubby. We were not happy with our room at first, but the staff showed us 2 other rooms and we found one that was quiet and relaxing for us. Restaurant was really great. Food was awesome as were the margaritas. The view from where we were was just amazing as the sunset.
A bit noisy later at night as a couple of events were going on, but nothing unusual. The grounds are beautiful and made for a very relaxing trip.

Thank you for the good review. I am so happy you found a room you loved. Every room is different from a view type because of the way the hotel is laid out so people often pick the view they want and then we find the room. I am also glad you loved Fuego our signature restaurant as it is a perfect place for a margarita and a snack.

The Maya hotel in Long Beach is beautiful and all rooms weather you choose an ocean view or a garden view are excellent, Very clean and comfortable, but the osean view rooms are my favorate because there is a beautiful view of the ocean, the Queen Mary and the cruise ships that come and go from Long Beach. If you are going on a cruise this hotel is wonderful because they will take you to the cruise treminal and pick you up when you return. This is the best hotel in Long Beach to my opinion.

Room Tip: If you want to have a beautiful view, choose one of their ocean view rooms close to the pool, If you...

Stayed at this hotel as part of my cruise departing from the terminal a few hundred meters away from the hotel.
Overall a great hotel, Very friendly and professional staff in my opinion. Quickly checked inn, with a warm cookie in hand from reception, a great room with comfortable beds were awaiting after a 13.5 hour flight.
Room was nicely laid out, and very clean. My room was in building 4, which means closest to the road. It was possible to hear some distant traffic with window open, but this is no problem

I liked this hotel a lot and would stay again. Nice restaurant and bars on the sea-side, overlooking Long Beach.

Only slightly negative point was, as commented by other visitors, the air-condition units.
They made quite a lot of noise, but after flying for so many hours, I slept well anyway.

Big comfortable towels, nice bathrobes, and many other small details taken care of made the stay memorable.
