“Contemporary and well located.”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

As we arrived jazz music was being played into the street. A lovely welcome. We parked outside to unload then after check in we moved the car park to across the street. $7 a day you pay through the hotel. On check in the gent told us they only had double rooms left. Not really understanding I just agreed. (It was very late) only later did I realise my booking was for a queen and we had been downsized. As we had pre paid back in January I was a little disappointed by this.

On arriving in the room I was impressed how clean it was, the bed was comfortable if though smaller than what I paid for!

Location was very good, easy to find on arrival to long beach and great to walk out from to all the long beach highlights.

The hotel staff recommended a restaurant for breakfast called the "omelette inn" it was a great little find. Good food and service, at a reasonable price.

The rooftop pool has great views and was very quiet over my stay.

I would stay again, hope you enjoy as I did.

I was a bit disappointed with the size of the room. The place we stayed the night before was larger, so I had anticipated the same size room at the Hyatt. We had two double beds, not queen size, but the beds were comfy. The bathroom was very spa like with a walk in shower, waterfall showerhead, etc. Staff was extremely nice and helpful. We parked in the garage across the street for $7 a day...were given a ticket at check-in that would let us go in and out of the garage as many times as we wanted to for this price.

This is a nice hotel, but it depends on what you are looking for. If you want a large room, this probably isn't the place. But if you are looking for the modern, spa-like bathroom, then definitely go here.

I arrived at the hotel on a weekday for a business trip to the area. I was expecting a well-signed, highrise structure, however the hotel is more of a boutique size and within The Pike, literally. The location is great with many attractions, restaurants and local hot spots abound. It's situated on a small street that ventures through The Pike, so it was very quiet. Parking is in the structure to the West of the hotel and it's a quick jaunt down the elevator and across the street to the lobby. There is a charge for parking ($7/day) with in and out privileges. There is a loading area directly in front of the hotel, so if you're a heavy packer or have a family, drop your luggage with the bellhop curbside.

The hotel itself is nicely done with a comfortable, modern feel. The lobby is open and spacious with a bar and restaurant. There is also an outdoor patio area with a fire pit. There is a rooftop bar at the pool, yet apparently it isn't open during the Winter months. The pool was however, and the view is marvelous! The check in process was quick and efficient, and the staff at the front desk were more than helpful. The room itself was clean and well appointed, and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was large (no tub) and I REALLY enjoyed the walk-in shower! I think I showered 3 times in one day just because I loved the Rain Shower Head so much.

My stay was fantastic and I will be back on my next business trip to the Long Beach area.

Cheers, and Safe Travels!

I recently stayed here on business, we were attending a tradeshow at the nearby convention center. The hotel is within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. The room was very nice. It had a desk with a phone and a coffee maker. There was also a sitting area with a couch and tv. The tv swiveled between the sitting area and the bed. so it can be seen from either area. The bathroom was large and the shower had a choice between a rainfall shower or your traditional fixture. There is a bar and restaurant located in the lobby of the hotel. The restaurant was convenient for breakfast, the spanish omelette was delicious. There was a pool on the rooftop, beautiful view at night. There is a parking garage, as hotel guests were we charged $7 per day. The front desk people were very helpful; whether it be for simple walking directions or dinner recommendations, they were always pleasant. There is a small gym on the main level, luckily is wasn't busy.

if coming by taxi emphasise the address with the pike and the street name. the hyatt regency is 800 yards away and most of our group were taken to the wrong hyatt by taxi drivers.

if coming using hertz always lost the hotel isn't in the system so use the address.

if driving park outside hotel and get a parking ticket before going into car park building.

hotel rooms very nice, modern and v good value.

I have been here a couple of times on business. The rooms are spacious and have "character" which is nice. The huge walk-in rainfall shower is a pretty nice touch also. The restaurant doesn't have a wide variety but the food is pretty nice and the staff are friendly and accommodating and they have a car service and other extra services when requested.
The only down-side I would say is a somewhat loud heater / air conditioner and sometimes you don't have a choice but to turn it on.
However, I would without a doubt stay here again!

Room Tip: The larger king rooms with the walk-in shower are the best.

We stayed here 2 nights prior to our Princess Cruise. The hotel was fantastic the bed was so comfortable had a great sleep, with a large walk in shower. The staff were friendly and extra helpful, and soon knew what we liked to drink in the bar & breakfast restaurant.

The room was spacious, clean & had fabulous views. Some may find that there is not adequate storage space for clothing, for our 2 night stay it was fine. But we did struggle to hang things in the wardrobe due to items stored in there. We had to ask for extra cream for the coffee machine, but this was immediately put in our room. Although, we went up to the roof terrace we didn't stay, due to the bar not being open, suspect this is only open in summer months. But it had fabulous views, including the Queen Mary.

The hotel is well situated, although was surprised on walking to Walmarts, seeing curfew signs on our way. We didn't encounter any trouble though.

We walked along the shore front, and around shoreline village. My only complaint (not to do with the hotel) was that nothing opened until 11am. So we were given no option other than have breakfast at the hotel, which we found served a great breakfast. We found various venues to eat during the day & evening, including an Irish Bar, around the corner. The area in general does not appear to get busy until later in the day. The aquarium is opposite the hotel, and a free shuttle bus runs to the Queen Mary from there.

We enjoyed our stay here & cannot find any fault with this hotel. The hotel arranged for a taxi to take us to San Pedro Cruise port on our last day.
