I took a client down to Long Beach for their Annual Toyota Grand Prix this April. I had been before and stayed at a generic 4-Star Hotel near their downtown Convention Centre. Tons of action...yeah, but lots of noise too. I mean, last year the hotel lobby had so many events going on simultaneously that you needed a KPMG nerd account to find the right booth!
This year I picked the Maya....wadda difference! You cross the short Queensway Bridge to "the Queen Mary side" of Long Beach, and it's like you've entered this quiet resort zone where nobody is yelling for you to buy something, no cops telling you to move along, or that you can't park here.........and you get a million dollar view of the hustling-bustling high-rise side of Long Beach, the Queen Mary, and the ocean.
There was nothing not to like here. Heck, there is even a downtown shuttle bus that picks you up every half hour at the front gate.....FOR FREE!!!
The on-site food and service AND VIEW @ The Fuego Restaurant were all fantastic. The staff all made strong efforts to ensure my client and I were satisfied with everything.....and we were!
This was one of my top five business stays ever, and I've been doing this since 1979! Luxurious & quiet, yet a 3 minute shuttle bus ride to downtown's action. I will be staying here again!
