I usually do not leave reviews but I had to for this property I cannot give this property less than one star or I would. The problem is that there are two buildings for this Holiday Inn the main tower and a property in the back. I have no doubt that the rooms is in the tower are very nice the lobby is extremely nice however if you get stuck in what they call the West Wing you will be extremely disappointed this building is basically worse than a Motel 6. The rooms are very small the bed was at least comfortable however the noise from the street is very loud. I talked to the front desk three times to try to move and we were not able to do this. I would not stay here again. They should advertise that you may end up in an area that is not the quality of what a Holiday Inn should be.
Every staff person I spoke with was helpful and friendly. Top-notch people working here! The room and common spaces were updated, very pleasant, clean and attractive. The bed was very comfortable. The room was laid out nicely to allow one to work if needed. Breakfast was good and a bonus to have it on the top floor with a great view. Location is very convenient to Long Beach Airport. Just be aware that this convenience comes with a fair amount of noise from the airport (starting at 7am) and the adjacent 405 freeway.
Stayed here for business, nice clean room, friendly and helpful staff. Vue restaurant on the penthouse has a great happy hour with 1/2 price appetizers and of course a great vue! A variety of restaurants eithin ealking distance. Happy with my stay.
This was a good value versus the pricier properties near the convention center. Although my room faced the airport there wasn't any noise that would disrupt a good nights sleep. The property is nicely remodeled, has a small cafe that sells Peets coffee (Yes!) as well as a self-serve snack area for early/late hours. Everyone was courteous and the room was modern and clean. I visited the Vue bar one evening for dinner and was warmly greeted and attended to; very handy for not having to go anywhere else at end of a long day. My only gripe was the parking charge. I don't see how that ensures that guests have space to park because it would not change the number of guest vehicles. Gas station next door; very handy.
Clean rooms and clean lobby but the front desk staff seemed overworked. Even though I was the only one trying to check in at the time. He kept blaming it on computer issues. Pros and cons of every hotel stay and this one is no exception. Disappointed by the fact that no one could tell me why the coffee bar in the lobby was closed by 11:50 AM. I am appreciative of the laundry facilities..Just they were just a single washer and dryer at the end of a hallway on the 1st floor completely unsecured. Room was small and and I not sure that I got the executive room that I paid for. PRO: Close to Long Beach Airport which is why I picked this property for a very early morning 5:40 AM depurate.
We traveled to Long Beach for my husband's 50th high school reunion and stayed at the Holiday Inn Long Beach Airport (where I stayed the night before our wedding 45 years ago). The hotel has recently been remodeled and it is beautiful; the rooms are great and very quiet even though the hotel is so close to the airport. It is conveniently located to many attractions in the area and I would stay there again if I am ever in the vicinity.
I always stay at IHG hotels and this one was one of the better ones. It's newly updated, coffee bar and regular bar! There is a gas station next door and a shuttle to/from the airport. I walked about a mile down to an area with shops and restaurants.
We have stayed in this hotel for more than 20 years both business and family related During that period of time we have seen many upgrades but price is above the level of hotel. In addition the hotel instuted a parking fee and is not in a business or resort district. This weekend we spent more than $600 for 2 night stay which included city tax. We were provided ONE small bar of soap during the stay for shower and sink for the two nights. Charge top dollar but cheap out on soap.
I would agree with past reviews, the cost of the hotel room does not match accommodations. I also stayed on the 12th floor and had to endure with chairs dragging across the floor...fortunately, I was pretty exhausted so that did not matter. I was given a king-bed sized room which is shaped like a pie shape. This pie-shape size room is largely smaller than most hotels, so I with one person, the size was do-able. With another person, the size would have been too cramped. Essentially, there is only room for one bed and the wall unit with the wardrobe (no room for a closet), TV, and fridge. The water pressure to the 12th floor must be difficult as it felt as if I was showering under a hose. For $175 a night, I would expect slightly better. The other gripe I have is the added $9 per night parking fee. The parking fee was unnecessary as I did not see any security walking around nor is it gated. Be aware, this hotel is not in the greatest of area. The plus to the hotel includes a convenient washer and drawer (which I used) and computer access area (equipped with a nice printer). There's a fantastic sushi bar/restaurant across the street which is quite yummy. The location of the hotel is directly off the 405 freeway, so it is both convenient and you get a steady stream of 'white noise' if you're facing the freeway. I stayed here for business for two nights. Would I stay here again? No likely not- Too many other options a shorter drive away. Simply, the cost for the room and parking did not match what I would be willing to spend outside of work.
Cost is not commensurate with hotel, restaurant, or service. Hotel is noisy and especially if you stay on the 12 floor there is lots of stomping noises and rolling cart noises well into the night. The restaurant and bar are the next level. Also don't let them con you into a handicap room if you don't need it. Parking for this palace is $9.00 a night now just because they need the money. A year ago it was free, 2 years ago free, 20 years ago free, now 9.00.. Food was mediocre, service was ok, For a romantic dining experience "DONT GO HERE". I will return, NEVER to this hotel. Whomever took it over has ruined it as far as I am concerned..
