“Amazing renovated hotel right on the water!”
Reviewed January 24, 2011

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!

Reviewed December 28, 2010

We just got back from 4 nights (Dec 24-28) at Hotel Maya. I grew up in the area so I am very familiar with the options. Ultimately we chose Maya because we had heard good reports about the remodel and also because Hilton (Doubletree) bought the property and we wanted to get points.
Hotel Maya is fairly removed from the few attractions Long Beach has to offer. I would not stay there without a car. However, if you have a car Maya is a fantastic choice. The décor is great and the layout of the rooms is very good. The view from our room was incredible. We could see the harbor and the city all from our bed. Someone spent a lot of money making this hotel look stylish as though it was on the Mayan Riviera as opposed to 100 yards from the Queen Mary. The TV was giant and had HD stations. The pool was gorgeous. Wifi worked great and it was free.
Service was attentive. We were traveling with our dog, and the staff came up with solutions to a few of the complications we encountered. If I had to complain about anything it would be that the bathroom was small. Also the gym is borderline ridiculous, but I wasn’t staying there to work out.
