Day 23 - San Diego to Long Beach and Queen Mary

... This place was all beautiful homes, surf beaches and people walking impossibly small dogs. Gorgeous. There is also a big historical hotel there. The Real Estate prices place this area as one of the highest priced in the US and so maybe we'll buy a little place there with the lotto winnings.

Then there was the drive up to Longbeach, which is in the southern part of LA and home to the Queen Mary. Today ...

... the top down, freezing cold, the wind in our hair and eye blowing cold air and ******* up our hair and filling our pores with road grime from the dirty city. we also get to listen to loud dirty rap with a heavy bass blasting our eardrums and we drive in circles and it takes all day. sometimes all we do is drive like this and we always regret saying "sure we'll come." ...we get a new black light in the mail every day ;)

... the bus which was a bit of a shame but I still felt good about today. I watched on my GPS as we headed towards Burbank, we needed to find a road called Forest lawn drive, once we got up over the hill and started coming down into studio city Forest lawn came over the bus speaker as the next stop, you beauty!!! It couldn't have been easier, we got off the bus and started walking along the long street and soon started seeing Warner bros parking lots. It was a long street but soon enough ...

A late sleep in and hunt for coffee. Yeah Starbucks at the end if the street!. Navman on and off the Getty Centre seems to be easy but the "lady" is using the freeway which is complete madness with speed and volume. This is not challenging enough but all the exits she suggests are all under roadworks and closed:(. Stress rises as we have no idea where to go and phones are ...

The Longest Day

A travel blog entry by gavin_davies

... to deviate from, but this is just a way to get some money out of us 'for the community'. No problem with that. I do have a problem with the guide talking about how the money will go to the community and not to him and some people also pay him too. He can jog on. $10 is more than enough as it is quite frankly. It's an hour round trip at best! The early rise was a waste of time. Cloud cover completely obscured the sunrise. Also because of unstable ground due to a ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Long Beach Hotel

    Great for Business Travelers

    from

    Great location for those who want to enjoy more than the hotel. Very convienently located near the downtown hot spots on Pine Ave. Plenty of great restuarants and night life. Easy self parking ($10/day). Rooms were large and roomy. Very friendly staff.

    Does Not Live Up to Renaissance Standards

    from

    Having stayed at various Marriott properties, including quite a few Renaissance hotels, I know what to expect in service. I am used to the plain old idiosyncracies that can be easily ignored, and I know when the service is just plain bad. Unfortunately, this hotel walks that fine line.

    Good hotel, good price, great location

    from

    This is a great hotel for a great price. Perfectly located on Pine Ave where there are good bars and restaurants. Also the bus to take you to the Queen Mary leaves just outside the hotel, and it takes just a few minutes. Recommended and I would stay here again.

    Very good hotel near convention center

    from

    Stayed here last week for a conference and it was the most convenient place to stay near the convention center (aside from the Hyatt). Just across the street. I got a room on Concierge level and it was spacious, clean and quiet. The amenities on that level are a continental breakfast in the morning and a cocktail hour at night. You still have to pay for your alcoholic beverages though. The appetizers were okay and so was the breakfast but not expansive. The hotel itself isn't bad and the food at the restaurant was quite good. Service all across the board was excellent. Needed to Fedex something and they had mailers (ask Bellman) and took care of getting the package delivered. Overall the hotel is not plush but it is definitely clean, efficient and I would stay here again if I had to go to Long Beach. As for Long Beach, homeless and/or vagrant situation that has been mentioned before was not that bad (I guess it depends on what you are used to). Hotel is convenient to free shuttle service around town and near some excellent restaurants.

    Nothing to write home about

    from

    I had to stay here for a conference and was kinda disappointed with the hotel. It is great that it is located across the street from the convention center.

    Decent

    from

    Just returned from a stay at this hotel and a visit to the Long Beach Aquarium with the family. Nice place. Rated a 3 1/2 star at one web site, I would say it is closer to a 3 than a 4 star. Nice, friendly service. Business oriented but still fine for the family. I agree that the property is showing its age. Loose or missing masonry with missing grout was apparent around the property and caulking could use some help. Yes...Long Beach is "homeless friendly" so it is a bit of a freak show but no reflection on the property. While different, I didn't feel threatened. I certainly would not pay $160 of my money to stay there but at the low Priceline price we got, it was well worth it!

    It's ok, but no great destination hotel.

    from

    I travel for business, so I stay at many hotels. This time, I thought, since I'm new in Long Beach, I'd stay at a more upscale establishment. Great location, but an average place to stay. The staff was friendly and received the concierge level, so I got access to a happy hour and free breakfast. I liked the breakfast. I did not go to the happy hour. The room was nicely decorated, but you can tell it's an older hotel. The walls were thin and, unfortunately, I could hear TOO MUCH, if you know what I mean. Not the best place for a quiet sleep. In addition, I felt like I was on the first floor, with all the traffic noise on Beach Blvd. Excuse me, but this is the 11th floor. What's up? Parking is nine bucks, so that doesn't help, but I guess it's typical in that area. I ate at a seafood restaurant down the street. Very average. I also found the area to be dirty with many strange homeless types walking around. It's just a wacky area. Similar to San Fran. I'd look at another hotel in the area to stay. At $160, this place is not worth it.

    Great getaway

    from

    I loved the hotel it was great the services were great. very clean and very elegant. my six yearold enjoyed the pool. My family and I got to eat breakfast there and the food was good. I can't wait to plan our next visit.

    Businesslike facilities, good food, fine pool

    from

    The Renaissance Hotel in Long Beach is clean, well-appointed, with a cheerful and responsive staff. Room service always comes on time, and rooms are well-organized for doing business at the desk: easy computer plug-ins, phone nearby. The Renaissance has an elegant lobby, good food at the lobby restaurant, and a fine swimming pool and hot tub open to the southern California sunlight. For this business traveler, the Renaissance is a respite and a pleasure.

    Nothing special

    from

    I won't rush back to this hotel. The mattresses and sheets in our room were poor quality Staff was pleasant.
