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.

Total fun

If you are looking for 5 stars by today's standards this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a good time and travel back to 1930 then this is an extremely fun place. I would recommend it as I had a fantastic time and the service was better than average.

Wonderful Getaway!

My senses were saturated with nostalgia and history! The price was way below the other hotels in the Long Beach area and way above in personality. Be sure to go to the sun deck and watch the fishing boats and sailboats going by. Accessible to restaurants, aquarium, LA arena and everything! Wonderful!!!

Historical experience...pricey but worth it.

Very noisy. St. Patrick's Day parties and drunk, loud, visitors/guests late-night, but okay with good ear plugs. Upgraded cabin okay, nothing fancy, mattress very comfortable. View to Long Beach Harbor requested, received cabin with view on parking lot. Parking extra and pricey. Restaurant okay, but overpriced. However, all in all great experience. Toured ship, including bridge, engine room etc. Volunteers in Communications teach morse code and equipment used on ship during service times. Cool!

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

Walk at night on ship, great views on Long Beach Harbor, Skyline, bridge, all lighted up, colorful. Great for romantic evening or experiencing historical ship and how they travelled in the old days. For sailors: Engine room, bridge, communications, etc. a must-see.

Unique experience but beware thin walls!

Very good value option for Long beach with good range of food & drink options on site. Only criticism is how thin the walls are, we could hear every word and every sound from the TV from next door

Birthday / break up weekend.

Our stay at the Queen Mary was just what we needed after my best friend and I had been dumped in the same week. Originally a birthday trip rour agenda changed. The ship is absolutely beautiful! The staff was friendly and helpful, except for the those at the tour ticket booth. Both individuals we encountered were rude and unprofessional, making rude comments about the other staff members. The night ghost tour was amazing! We indulged in delicious room service and lounged on fluffy beds. This was a fantastic stay with a fantastic view of the harbor. We will go back again, even if didn't just get dumped!!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The passport shuttle is free service that will take you to all the main attractions in the city. Pick up and dro off is short walk from the ship.

Unique location, but desperately in need of renovation

Having lived in the L.A. area for several years, it was always a dream to spend the night on this ship. During the Memorial Day weekend I spent 4 nights on the ship. The initial impression was positive, and after a night, I realized that this ship is so desprately in need of having an internal facelift that it, too (like its sister and cousin ships around the world), will probably be scrapped within the next 5 years if something drastic--like some corporation with a lot of money decides to invest in it--doesn't change things. Did anything really bad happen to spoil my experience? No, not really. It was a combination of a lot of small things. The rooms are tidy and spacious, but the floorboards are rusty, paint is chipping off of many of the corners, and most of the woodwork has truly seen better days (shoddy job of patchwork repairs, and most of the wood that is so praised in the much-too-euphoric-marketing materials about the ship appears to be simply run down). There is neither a mini-bar nor a safe in the room (although the price of the rooms would lead you to believe that they should be in the room), WLAN costs extra and the noise insulation between rooms (we had room A162) is very poor. The fact that there is only one real bar on the entire ship is a bit bizarre. It is unfortunate that the bar closes every night fairly early and based on the fact that they have fabricated ghost stories in a desparate attempt to made the boat appear to me to be in desparate need of financial support. The security appears to be very strict during the daytime, but then at night, anyone can simply walk onto the boat. The normal breakfast buffet ($14 + tax and service) is ok (not bad, not good, just ok) becomes monotonous after the first night. The "sunday brunch" looks decent, but is ridiculously overpriced ($49/person + tax + tip). Since last week, the ship charges "outsiders" (people who are neither connected with the hotel or with an event in the hotel) $15 to visit the ship. That is very, very excessive in my opinion. The museum on the boat (inlcuding films and displays about the history of ocean liners vs. cruise ships) is very, very good and interesting.

If you like vegan cooking, please, please, please try one of the two restaurants (both about a 10 minute drive from the boat..and in Long Beach): "Steamer Organic Restaurant" and "Zephyr".

pre line dance stay

Service was good, everything was clean, check-in good, location for us was excellent. checked in during day, out for most of day, when we came back, there was water on our bathroom floor,, smelled very bad. We called desk for help, 15min. or so later we decided to "go" to the desk. Person in charge offered us another room, value not equal to what we had so he offered vouchers for breakfastt meal to compensate. 2nd room was little chilly, but clean, and we were tired, slept like a log. Check out was fine, food was fine etc.etc.
