    Very nice stay at this hotel. Rooms were roomy, bed was comfortable and the breakfast, though a bit pricey, was first-class!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Long Beach & Executive Meeting Center

    A great place to stay

    from

    Was a very nice hotel. rooms very nice and quiet, we were even near the elevators and the ice machine and didnt hear a thing! A little pricey on the food but plenty of places to walk to if you dont mind a few blocks. Staff very friendly and willing to please.

    Fair to Midland

    from

    Stayed 4 nights for a convention. They placed us in a smoking room as the non-smoking was booked. The room really smelled of smoke as did the entire floor. If you have any allergies insist on non-smoking or rather try to stay at the Westin which has much nicer rooms. The lobby and grounds were nicely decorated. This property requires much walking to get to restaurants or the convention center or take the free courtesy local bus.

    Better yet, stay at the Westin it's a much nicer place. I do not recommend this for eldery, handicapped or those with small children. Business people will do OK if they are having meetings on site or next door at the World Trade Center.

    A Marvelous Hilton Experience

    from

    I had car trouble coming back from LA to San Diego and ended up half way at this hotel in Long Beach as I did not want to risk the drive home so late at night. I must say, as Hiltons go, I was very pleasantly surprised with this one. My previous experience with this chain has been just very average to great stays now with this one. The staff couldn't have been more accomodating nor cheerful and very helpful. I checked in at around midnight and I was given all kinds of emergency supplies, toothbrush, deodorant, etc. free of charge. The desk person couldn't do enough to make me feel comfortable after my car trouble earlier and my fortuitous stay here. The lobby and common areas are beautifully yet very understadtedly decorated in lovely Asian vases and objets d'art, really elegantly appointed and very tasteful, yet modern. My room was large with a nice enough bathroom with marble counter top and modern amenities. The room was very subtly suggestive of Asian art and the king bed couldn't have been more comfortable and supportive of my bad back. Very well cleaned and maintained room and clean sheets on the bed. This hotel does have a wonderful restaurant, a casual one called Ascari up the escalators up stairs and convenient parking which they did not charge me for!!!! for $9 a day. The garage is ample and easy to get to and there are many eateries in walking distance, the convention center is about five blocks away. All in all, I was really happy to stay here and the staff is just awesome!!! Remarkably one of the better hotel stay experiences I have had. Great!!!! Highly recommend.

    Good Hotel...So-So Location

    from

    I stayed here for business and this is a very nice hotel. The rooms were very clean and well appointed. The lobby area, including the bar are very nice. The staff was very accomodating. The reason I deducted one star was because guests have to pay $9 per day for parking and because of the location. It is in the business district, which rolls up the streets at 5 PM. To get to any semblance of civilization in the evening (restaurants or nightlife), you have to walk about 10-15 minutes to Pine Avenue. There is a complimentary public shuttle bus which runs down to the waterfront area (where most of the action is), but since the Hilton is the only hotel in that part of town they cut the route short at 9PM. After 9 PM the bus ends it run back towards the hotel at Pine Avenue, about a 10-15 minute walk from the hotel.

    A Good Deal

    from

    If you're (a) looking for a good deal, (b) don't want to pay the L.A. hotel prices, and (c) want a location that's midway to L.A., Newport Beach & Anaheim -- then this is the hotel for you. It's also one of the nicest and well run Hiltons. It sure beats my stay at the Hilton Towers in San Francisco a week earlier. Although the Long Beach hotel was a bit hard to find at first, it was easy the second time around.Got a $99/night special rate at Hilton's website for a three night stay on its executive floor, with breakfast buffet & exercise room, newspaper, and daily bottled water included. Room was immaculate with custom linens, bed was very comfortable and had a high padded headboard. Bathroom was huge and spotless, with granite counters, and the amenities were good and plentiful (i.e. bathrobes, coffee maker, soaps, lotions, sewing kit, etc.) The view from the room was quite nice with the harbor and the Queen Mary docked in the far distance. Checked in at midnight. Despite the time, the front desk staff quite welcoming. Self parking was extremely convenient ($9/day), with elevators that lead up just outside the hotel lobby. The only negatives were the isolated location and an exercise room that needed some equipment updating. In total, it was a really pleasant and a very memorable stay. I definitely go back again.

    Below average

    from

    We will definitely not be returning to this hotel. While the room was basically fine - clean and well-appointed - the other details of the hotel were not up to snuff. When we thought our in-room mini-bar was broken, the front desk explained to us that their mini-bars are not supposed keep things cold - just "slightly cooler than room temperature." So we're supposed to drink warm beer? We ate at the in-hotel restaurant. The burgers were fine, but I the seared ahi salad I ordered was so flavorless I had to send it back. And we received incorrect directions for getting around town more than once from the front desk. On the plus side - there was a great selection of movies available in our room.

    Terrible Location, Average Hotel

    from

    Stayed five nights in October 2003 for a conference at the Long Beach Convention Center. Biggest problem with this hotel is its location.

    There is NOTHING around to eat, drink or shop. It's on the edge of a freeway and in the business district of Long Beach. It's 7 blocks from the convention center and six blocks from Pine Avenue (where there are restaurants). The hotel itself has a nice lobby and a large lounge/bar but it's not very inviting since it's quite a quiet hotel for its size.

    I stayed on a Hilton Honors floor which entitled me to bottled water every day. The rooms are a decent size and kept very clean. The bathroom is also quite large. Since there are no restaurants or even coffee shops around the hotel, you're stuck eating in the hotel's one restaurant or room service. The decor and atmosphere of the restaurant is quite low end and tasted/felt almost like a Denny's. I only ate there once. Room service was prompt and the food was standard quality and variety. The front desk staff were helpful and friendly. for the price, we (I was with a group) could have stayed at a Renaissance or Westin for several dollars less and which were close to the convention center and within good walking distance of the Shoreline Village and Pine Avenue. Or, for a few bucks more we could have stayed at the Hyatt which is adjacent to the convention center.

    Best Hilton I've encountered

    from

    I disagree 100% with the previous post. This Hilton is one of the best in the chain (as evidence by the many awards they've won). The room was immaculate, well maintained, bathrooms were incredibly clean, staff was courteous and responsive and seemed to care. I would question the problems the previous post encountered with parking as the parking area of the Hilton is also shared with the World Trade Center next door and there would have been hundreds of underground parking places. There is no "dark lot" down the street. The area is well lit and just across from the Convention Center and Queen Mary. I was so impressed with this property I wrote the GM a letter and received a delightful response.

    More like a Holiday Inn

    from

    The room was clean and the location is convenient. However, the staff was certainly not interested in the guests. I was not able to find a porter for my bags when the shuttle dropped me off. Subsequent requests for information to local attractions and transportation were met with blank stares or staff that did not speak English and had no interest in directing me to someone who did.The other person staying the room with me arrived to find the Hotel secure parking was full and had to park in a dark lot on the next block. This doesn't live up to Hilton's standards.
