About The Queen Mary, Long Beach
When you are checking out the Queensway Bay, you will see a large ship docked at the end of the bay. Do not be confused, it is not a warship that strayed from the port, it is a warship that is docked in the bay to offer a tourist experience like never before. The Queen Mary warship was built in England and used to commute between America and Great Britain. The warship was brought by the city of Long Beach after it was withdrawn from service. It was converted into a hotel in the early 70s and since then, has become an immensely popular landmark in Long Beach. You can tour the inside of the ship that has been renovated and divided among restaurants and other attractions. One of the most popular attractions is a gallery dedicated to the memorabilia of Princess Diana that showcases her personal belongings, photographs, and heirlooms. There is a 4-D theatre on board. Fond of scary stories? Take a haunted tour of the ship after hours and explore some of her scary legends.

I highly recommend stain. You'll have a great time The people there were very professional and courteous. We had a little staff who with our reservation. The lady there at the counter stepped up took care of it went way above and beyond her job to help us out took care of us very well I would highly recommend this for a weekend getaway or a mini vacation even with the kids from baby to 18 years old would enjoy the time there the history is unbelievable. The staff is very knowledgeable and professional I would highly highly recommend this to anybody you would have a fun time. Even if you knew nothing about the Queen Mary that's my opinion.
I love this ship. It's beautiful and it's truly a work of art. The views are so nice. The layout is simple once you walk around to explore. The ship also does have a scary side to it that can leave you looking over your shoulder. Its amazing that its been around for so many years. It is a must so please be sure to check it out for yourself.
The drive into the parking lot is not the best due a lot of road work in the Long Beach area, but once you enter the parking lot the staff is very helpful in pointing you in the right direction. The room are vintage and very pretty with what must be the original wood. The bed was very comfortable. There are five places to get food, from Starbucks and light food to Winston's fine stake house. I ate at two of the restaurants and it was good food. All in all it was a very nice stay and I say if possible visit the Queen Mary if just to take a tour.
This is a historic site and had many uses so it's old and not in perfect condition. If you're expecting modern decor and luxury accommodations then this is not the hotel for you. I'm typically not thrilled by history, but I really enjoyed my one night stay. There are various types of rooms and I chose one with a port hole, and the harbor breeze was lovely. The thermostat didn't seem to do anything. Sound travels very easily as it is no longer a working ship so equipment has been removed causing more echoing against the metal walls with no engine noise to cover it. Ear plugs can be requested from the front desk. I'm a light sleeper and was immediately worried I wouldn't be able to sleep, but I had no issues at night and didn't even need ear plugs. There weren't many (or any) vegan options offered so I didn't eat on board. I arrived too late and didn't have enough time in the morning for any tours, but there is a discount with a standard stay. There didn't types of tours at scheduled times and a rotating historic exhibit. My only issue is there was a large bug in my room when I went to shower in the morning. The room was clean, except for that thing. If this had been at a hotel on land then I would've immediately called the front desk, but it's a ship and didn't ships used to have cats just to take care of rat problems? Again, history isn't thrilling to me so maybe I'm wrong but I removed it from my room with a piece of paper and didn't have a problem. Hotel parking is an extra charge and a facilities fee is another charge, but the total of those was less than $60 during a November stay.
The ship was built in 1936, given that, there is to be expected mechanical breakdowns. When I stayed there there was no hot water in a section of the ship. The night staff bent over backwards to get me hot water eventually changing my room to a suite that was 3X the size of my previous room. Other than the water issue, the hotel was nice to stay at, the bare was mostly original art deco of which I highly recommend visiting. There are most of the amenities you would have in any standard hotel. Great views, but if you are going in the winter be aware the windows do not seal airtight, so your room might be on the colder side. Not freezing cold, but not walk around in underwear.
