At first we thought we would never find it! It seems like you made a wrong turn and ended up in the Queen Mary parking lot and then we saw a second gate and the hotel was right there. It is situated so that you avoid the unatractive view of Long Beach and just see the bridge and causeway. The hotel has so many elements of color, design and texture. My grandson and I just walked around to look at everything. At night it turns into a beautiful delight. You could imagine being on some exotic island. They light up the fire pits and the music is not over bearing. The bar area and restaurant are very relaxing and the food was good. It beats the hussle bustle of LA and is near the Queen Mary, Shopping, Aquarium and food. A great find if you have to be in Long Beach!
