Living Large in LB

It was average. The carpets need to be cleaned. Barefoot in the room means black feet in the shower. It is a great location with lots of places to eat near by which are high quality. You are very close to the beach and the staff are very friendly. There is a mad rush for breakfast with limited seating. It was okay for the money...

Did not get to stay through travel company

I got to this hotel, but they did not have my travel company reservation or a room, so I was not allowed to stay through my travel company. The hotel did have a room two days later. I did stay at this hotel, but not through travel company.

A great staff makes a great hotel

Michelle, Miriam, Edwin and Jo at the desk are first rate. The breakfast room staff and the room cleaning staff work very hard and do things right.he staff in this hotel are great. We have been here before, and keep returning because of the service. The only negative is typical with newer hotels...the walls are paper thin, and the next door renter sounds like they are in your room.

On the same street not two doors down is a great Italian deli, Rocco's, and right across the street is a very quaint restaurant, Utopia. Deli had one vegetarian choice. Utopia has several vegetarian choices.

Visiting Family

We were in Long Beach to visit family and the location was perfect. We were just 10 minutes from there home. We could walk to there home from the hotel. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly. The hotel had very good security. The room was clean. They had a breakfast and the food was good.

Nice Getaway!!

stayed for 2 nights..Parking is underground all plenty of parking spots. it is 10 dollars a night to park which they automaticaly submit to your Credit card. Stayed on the 3rd floor,( if you want a street view and balcony make sure to request that) it was not loud. Rooms are nice average with elegant decorations but a little overpriced, I would have liked to have a refergerator if Im paying $320 for 2 nights. Breakfast is 6:30am to 10 am.. includes bacon eggs, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, orange or apple juice, they have a make your own waffle bar, gym was okay.. 4 cardio machines, no weights( only machines) Pool was great!! water was warm tempature and towels were included on the rack if you forget your towel. OVerall was great!! nothing special.. staff was nice and helpful..Their are shops and restaurants around the hotel.. Area around hotel is safe.

Clean-comfortable-quiet-nice location but a little pricey

Nice and quiet area nicely located with lots of food choices. Staff always had a smile. Breakfast area very tiny and easily filled up so arrive early. There was a sign by the door that said that the air conditioning would not work unless the door was locked- the AC worked fine without the door locked.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

North off of Ocean Blvd, pop on to the 710 to get to the 405. To go to the airport of other locations. Love the French restaurant a block north called Creme De La Crepe! Two block from the Nordstrom Rack and other shops! Aquarium, convention center and 555 E. American Steakhouse are all so very close also! You can also take the trolly south to 2nd Street to go to the shops there.
