My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Maya for a weekend getaway using Hilton points. This is our new favorite hotel in the L.A. area!
The entire property has been completely renovated and the rooms and common areas are very modern and new. The room was larger than most hotel rooms and had a good sized balcony overlooking the marina, the Long Beach skyline, the Queen Mary, and out to the ocean! We had room service dinner on the balcony as the sun was setting - beautiful and romantic! The rooms are all new, with comfortable beds, a large HD TV with connections for your laptop, complete with two wine glasses for your enjoyment. The bathroom was completely redone, including a new tub. The bathroom is on the small side, but I'd trade that for the beautiful balcony any day!
The hotel grounds are equally amazing! There is a a long sidewalk along the water, complete with tiki torches burning at night. There are also several fire pits scattered around the property with comfortable couches surrounding them - perfect for a cool January evening. And then there's the pool - extra large with 5 amazing cabanas "floating" on water overlooking the pool and the bay/ocean.
And bring the kids - in addition to the great pool, there's a sand volleyball court, tennis and basketball court, large grass area for frisbee, etc., and all day bike rentals for only $25.
The hotel restaurant is beautiful, with amazing views of the water. Try the fritatta omelette for breakfast - you won't have to eat again until dinner!
The location is somewhat isolated - across the bay from downtown Long Beach. If you have a car, it's only a 3 minute drive. Plus there's a free bus that stops in the hotel parking lot and a water taxi that stops at the dock right in front of the hotel.
I've already made reservations to return in a couple weeks and can't wait!
