The Queen Mary Hotel

Long Beach, California Coast

The hotel

Fancy something a little different? Look no further than the Hotel Queen Mary – once the grandest ocean liner that ever sailed the high seas, is now permanently docked quayside, offering a hotel experience like no other! The Queen Mary is filled with history, during WW2 it began carrying military personnel and Winston Churchill, he even signed the D-Day declaration onboard. Offering a glimpse into a bygone era, original Art Deco-style accommodation is on three decks (all above sea level) featuring original artwork found on the ship during her heyday. Wander round at leisure or join a guided tour, guaranteed to immerse you fully into her history – there’s a WWII tour, The Glory Days tour and even a Haunted Encounters tour for those stout of heart! There are shops aplenty – selling souvenirs, one-of-a-kind treasures, memorabilia, historic documents, artwork and so much more. Dining on-board is a delight – sample 1930s sophistication and style in the Observation Bar & Art Deco Lounge or 5-star dining at its best at Sir Winston’s. The Chelsea Chowder House & Bar offers a contemporary take on the traditional fish house whilst that great British tradition, afternoon tea, can be enjoyed in all its glory at the Tea Room.

Arrived Easter Sunday, egg hunt for the kids and a pleasant tour. Yes it’s old 1936, but still a marvel. I last went there to visit 30 years ago , it’s lost none of its charm. After 2 days in Disneyland go for it, see something different and full of history.

I don't know what the fuzz is about. It was overprized and large. Go spend your money some where else

This was my first time visiting inside the queen Mary. It was very educational and pretty impressive.

This was my first time visiting inside the queen Mary. It was very educational and pretty impressive. It costs $40 per adult to tour the inside which I thought is a little pricey but we spent all afternoon touring and hanging on the decks enjoying the SoCal weather. There is a 4-D theater which was great for the kiddos. It was only a 15 minute showing about sharks but I came out learning more about them. There are two restaurants on board. One is fine dining and the other is more casual but both are on the pricey side. There is a room for the kids to enjoy in the shipyard. LEGO room. The cost of entry goes down to $13 per adult at 6:00p but that’s only because guided tours and the bottom of the ship tour close at that time. The ship closes at 8:00p Read less

This was a very nice trip into the past. The Queen Mary has a wonderfully rich history as a luxury ocean liner (not a cruise ship) hosting celebrities and royals on its quick and many journeys between England and the U.S. it became a troop ship, the Grey Ghost that cleverly eluded enemy ships and subs. Because of its rich past, the historical aspects of the Queen Mary are its best assets. The current ship is in need of refurbishment so you have to use your imagination to see how glorious this ship might have been. The decks can be slippery so wear low heeled shoes or sneakers. The tours are great!! The guides are terrific. The food is a bit over priced but good. The Illusionist act was amazing. The hotel level had seen better days. Still worth the trip! Make sure to take the steam and steel tour for a trip to the deepest parts of the ship! Read less

Attended a final team building exercise and cocktail at the Queen Mary but doing the treasure hunt and my team was First Place and members were rewarded QM Beer Can Coaties. The treasure hunt was good but can see many parts of the ship in sad shape as nobody had done any maintenance for a long time. The organizer was stingy on the finger food part as only grilled vegetables, cubed cheese and crackers were available to go with a very ordinary bar service. The overall experience is below my expectation. Read less
