We stayed here for a Tournament of Roses vacation with a tour group. The hotel is superbly maintained. All of the public areas are clean and the room we stayed in was above average. The beds are soft and so comfortable. The maids clean daily and spend about 25 minutes in the room and bathroom. The breakfast buffet which is $22 dollars is a bit pricey but good. We had a nice view at the front of the hotel which overlooked the pool, the convention center and a glimpse of the Queen Mary. The dinner meals we had with our tour group at the hotel were above average. The real plus of this hotel is its' location. You' re so centrally located to everything. There are numerous restaurants of varying grades within easy walking distance. The Brewery restaurant across the street is awesome and reasonably priced. There is also a 7-11 and too many other restaurants to mention. The town of Long Beach provides free red Passport buses that pick you up across the street and run every 10 to 15 minutes. The buses have a route that take you everywhere of importance. You can also easily walk to the Quenn Mary and harbor shops. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
