Queen Mary Hotel Rooms

Deluxe Room
Each cabin has a king bed or 2 twin beds and is uniquely appointed and embellishments vary to include rich wood paneling art deco build-ins, original artwork and of course portholes for outside rooms. These elegant rooms were once reserved only for first class passengers, on their long trip across the Atlantic. Now you too can relax in style. All first class rooms are decorated in 1930s Art Deco, and have 85% of their original wood paneling.
Standard Room
Inside staterooms are perfect if you're looking for a place where you can relax, uninterrupted. Our windowless inside rooms, at the heart of the ship, will let you catch up on your sleep, no matter what time of day. Each room contains large, original Art Deco mirrors instead of portholes.

HIstorical Hotel

It was fun being on a historical ship, our room had all the original beds, heating and plumbing. It had been modernized. The room was an inside, pretty stuffy very thin wall. You could hear conversations in the next room. It was hard to get to sleep.

The Queen Mary was a great getaway. We had a blast exploring and reading all the history about the ship. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to all including children.

Just OK

The fact that the hotel is on the Queen Mary was the best feature of the hotel. The ship has a lot of character due to the historical nature of the ship. The size of the rooms are really good, especially in comparison to modern cruiseline state rooms. However, they were doing construction (on a Saturday), and it sounded like they were drilling directly into our room. The front desk staff was very accommodating in moving us and the new room was even larger. Again, this room was not quite perfect. The shower doors barely slid open/closed, the faucets were rusted, and the porcelain veneer in the sink and shower was peeling. The front desk staff was very nice, however, bell service was never offered, even as we stood there (or my boyfriend stood there) holding all of the bags. Staying on the Queen Mary was more of a novelty thing. I wouldn't stay there again, maybe just go on one of the tours and stay somewhere on or near the beach.

Make it a museum, not a hotel

This is an interesting place to see for its history but not to stay in. It was old, dark, noisy and unappealing. Our bathroom was not only vintage but the paint on the tub was coming off. One morning there was no hot water at all. The bed, though comfortable was placed directly under two attached wall cabinets that you banged into when getting in or out on either side. What we expected to be charming was merely antiquated and not in a good way. Sorry Queen Mary. You should only be used as a museum. Give up the hotel function.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

For an updated boat experience, take the high speed vessel to Catalina Island from Long Beach. You can get a great view of the Queen Mary as you pass by and you won't have to stay on board that sad old ship.

Fire Alarm?

My boyfriend and I decided to stay here on our 2 year anniversary, and it was a mistake. At 1:00am, the fire alarm was going off through out the whole boat,and they couldn't shut it off. So by 3:00am, we checked out early and got our money back.
