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.

The Queen Mary - Hotel & Museum Built in 1934 and retired to Long Beach in 1967, the Queen Mary has now been in retirement for longer than she was in active duty. Having sailed around the world and serving as a troop ship in WW2, it is remarkable that she is still with us today. The ship rests alone at the end of a long drive next to a now abandoned Sea Shore Village. There is SO much potential! But, until people wake up and realize that this is a JEWEL to be cherished, nothing will be done. There is a gold mine of opportunity, I just hope to live to see the day it is revitalized. The HOTEL - Nowhere on earth will you find a finer example of Art Deco design and refinement at sea than right here in in Long Beach, CA. The rooms, for the most part, are all preserved EXACTLY as they were back in the glory days of sailing. Each room or suite is different in size, shape and amenities. The decor is wood, the portholes still open and work and the smells of old Queen Mary waft throughout your visit. We have stayed in her larger suites, her smaller rooms as well as her Royal named suites and without fail, we have enjoyed the visit. The size of the cabins is ample and everything is smartly laid out. The wood walls, trim and cabinets really glow in the amber light of night. The water pressure is good. The water is hot and the heating and cooling works as needed! The beds are comfortable and the views special. What more can you wish for? Read less

We visited the QM in late December. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Meal service at breakfast was nice. We took a daytime tour of the boat, which was informative. One of our teens is totally into the QM’s history. For him, it was particularly exciting. He bought a nice QM pin (see photo)

I took a day trip to the Queen Mary. I bought the ticket online and signed up for three tours back to back. The Haunted tour runs long so next time I would do that tour last. The tour guides were knowledgeable and entertaining. The ship was clean and easy to navigate. The photos at sunset were great!

We had a drink in the bar. A tour the day before a cruise on the Carnival Panorama. The Queen Mary is nice but not sure if I would stay overnight as well. I would recommend a tour though as it is history.
