We stayed at the Varden for the Long Beach Marathon along with another couple from Colorado. The location was within walking distance to the race start, finish and expo. The rooms were modern and very clean with an "Ikea" feel; small but adequate. The staff were very friendly and outstanding with suggestions for dining each day that were exactly what we were looking for. The contenental breakfast each morning was nice and the afternoon wine and snacks social added a nice flaire to the ambiance of this classic "vintage" hotel. If my wife ever decides to run the Long Beach Marathon again, we will definitely stay at the Varden again. Charles, Larry and Adina made our stay at the Varden so nice that we feel we now have friends there to visit in the future.
