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.

What a great place for a business meeting. The QM is totally self contained with great restaurants, amazing views, awesome history and the rooms are amazing. Stay a night or two and it almost feels like a cruise.

Wow, we stayed here for 2 nights and probably didn't see the whole ship. I felt like Rose on the Titanic! What a great place that puts you back in time. I loved it! Rooms were small but then again, you are on a ship.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Beautiful to tour it, but as a hotel, well, not such a great experience. You must remember, it's a very old ship.

The cabins have some issues. The toilet flushing system still makes me laugh out loud. And it takes 30 minutes to get to water to take a shower. The bathtub itself is so curvy you have about 5" wide to stand flat. Dangerous. There's no a/c, you must just open the portholes. No in-room coffee, 2 electrical outlets in the entire suite.… Read more

Bed was fine, but... Just take a tour and stay elsewhere. Read less

We love visiting the Queen Mary and we were even married on her several years ago. We revisited and were dismayed to see that she hasn't been maintained as well as she deserves. The Queen Mary is still a delight to see and marvel at the artistry that went into her. She truly is a beauty and a time capsule going back to a more elegant time. There are all sorts of tours. See the engine room. Learn about her important role in WWII. These are well worth doing. But I ask the people who own her and are making money off of the Queen to bring her back to her former glory. Paint is peeling in places, wood in areas is unfinished, the beautiful wood decks looked uncared for, the chairs in the Observation Bar are ripped and torn. Please preserve this beauty. Read less

This ship is a piece of history. The common areas and bars are very comfortable with a classic theme. The rooms however are small. They are clean but a tad worn. The location is too far from the downtown area to walk. Still, if history interests you- sleeping the night on a famous historical ship is cool.
