This is a lovely hotel, very modern but has a somewhat confusing layout. The hallways are open to the air, no ice machine on each level. If you check in at night, it is a bit of a hunt to find it. The rooms are very clean, the views wonderful, beds comfortable. The AC is very loud, but works well.
If you have a lot of toiletries, make sure to have them in a travel bag that hangs on a hook, there is no room around the sink for personal items, and the light in bathroom makes for interesting makeup. There are many wonderful areas off of the lobby to lounge. The bar is pretty, but on a week night the others there were primarily after hours employees, and the bartender not especially welcoming. We would definitely stay there again. Not your typical hotel. Check dates for events in the area, the parking lot the eve of the Long Beach Marathon was full, we circled for 20 minutes one night to find a spot.More
