California sun and surf await at our Long Beach hotel, just minutes from the Carnival® Cruise dock and the Queen Mary. Catalina Island and CSULB (Cal State Long Beach) are conveniently located near our Long Beach hotel. For business travelers or those in town for a special event, the Long Beach Convention Center is also in the neighborhood. Our friendly staff understands that comfort and location are important when traveling. A great location, indoor pool and exercise facility make guests feel right at home at our Long Beach hotel. With free Wi-Fi and a complimentary full expanded breakfast, you're sure to start the day off right. Enjoy a buffet spread with a waffle station, hot eggs, sausage, fresh fruits, favorite breakfast pastries, cereals and yogurts. Complete your breakfast with a cup of 100% Arabica coffee or cold juice. The Aquarium of the Pacific is a local destination that's family-friendly. Of course, many of our guests are in town with Carnival® Cruise or en route to Catalina Island. Festivals like the Jazz Fest are popular local attractions that bring in travelers from around the region. The Long Beach Marathon, crawfish events, and Grand Prix are additional options for guests looking for something a little different on their vacation. Shop Pine Avenue, Belmont Shore and Shoreline Village for one of a kind gifts and souvenirs. Both are just a few minutes from our Long Beach hotel. The LB Performing Arts Center is a hot spot for concerts and brings in the best performers around the world. Conferences at the Convention Center attract business travelers, too, and we're happy to provide quiet accommodations perfect for taking care of business. Some of our regular guests are in town for work with the shipping industry, imports and exports, and the Port of Long Beach and Los Angeles. Food inspectors, offshore technicians and many others consider us their home away from home. Reserve your room at BEST WESTERN PLUS Hotel at the Convention Center today!

Business Stay - One Night

Wonderful!! This was a delightful surprise for someone who is in a different hotel every night. Very nice! The only thing that was a negative surprise was the $10 fee for parking which I didn't see in the information blurb. The good news is that it was very reasonable given the parking fees at other nearby hotels and they allowed me to park there until 5pm the following day without charging again for the parking fee.

Excellent stay

I visit Long Beach several times per year on business at the convention center. I have found this hotel to be the best value. It is quiet, clean, free breakfast and the rates are very reasonable. It is a few block walk to the convention center each morning, but since the weather is always perfect it is actually a pleasant way to start the day.

Wonderful location and nice staff.

We are older people and this hotel was so easy for us to "navigate" for 4 days. We will return here.

Call and confirm

Call ahead to make sure you have the room. Just because you have a paper dosen't mean anything to the hotel or to this service. I requested a 2 bed room, I got a single full bed room and I had to fight for that, not fun after a 5hr drive and 10 pm at night. Had to put the matress on the floor and sleep on the boxspring. Not fun , not right!
