Good Hotel...So-So Location A review of Hilton Long Beach & Executive Meeting Center
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.
