Scratch one off my bucket list to stay on the historic Queen Mary. Check-in was fine, the hotel clerk was very friendly. We stayed one night in August. I booked a two twins room but she upgraded us to a family room for $40 more and this was well worth it. The light switches and original ventilation systems, woodwork was so cool. The smells of an old ship made the experience that much more. I didnt stay here for a modern hotel experience so if your expecting a 21st century hotel experience, you might consider a Holiday Inn :) Thank you for not modernizing the old lady. When turning on the TV a channel with historic footage and history was on and it was very interesting. I just loved walking around the ship after 10pm when the ship is closed to non-guests. The port hole opened to expose a gorgeous view of Long Beach. My wife and kid really enjoyed the Diana exhibit which I bypassed in favour of sipping a Starbucks coffee on deck where Winston Churchill might have been. At 10:00 am they sound the horn and a pre recorded message comes on over the PA system simulating the old cruising days. There was so much to experience at the Queen Mary and even my tweenage daughter really enjoyed our stay. The little things like the smell of 80 yr old wood and the old electrical panels, the static displays throughout added so much. It was an enjoyable and memorable stay that I will do again.
