The Queen Mary is very interesting to walk thru. The size of the engines and all that went into it when it was built in the 30's is impressive, the hotel is not. The rooms, although quaint, are small and dingy. The rooms can be noisy and they even warn you in the literature you get when checking in "Without the rumble of the ship's engines, sound does travel through our steel walls, so we ask you to please be courteous to guests in adjoining staterooms by being mindful of noise levels. Ear plugs are available at the front desk for your convenience.". My experience was bad. The first night an electrical transformer of some type kept energizing every 15-20 minutes starting at 4 am. so I had to ask for the ear plugs at 5:30. The desk personnel were friendly and moved me to another room the next night. However, after a 12:30 am fire alarm woke everyone up at 6 am the people in the next room decided to watch TV. It was so loud that it woke me up and I thought at first it was in my room. Unless you are fascinated by the history of the ship I would stay somewhere else. The bed was fine but overall I would say this is along the lines of a one star hotel.
