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.

#1. Lesson learned. Do not use a booking site. Rooms were $80 cheaper the morning of our visit, but neither hotel nor booking site would honor price matching. #2. Check-in stated as 4pm. We were early - no problem. We had lunch and roamed the ship! She is gorgeous and we loved everthing about this part of our adventure. #3. By 6pm we were… Read more
#1. Lesson learned. Do not use a booking site. Rooms were $80 cheaper the morning of our visit, but neither hotel nor booking site would honor price matching. #2. Check-in stated as 4pm. We were early - no problem. We had lunch and roamed the ship! She is gorgeous and we loved everthing about this part of our adventure. #3. By 6pm we were begging for a room --- finally! It was lovely. Totally amazing step back in time. The bathroom fixtures were so interesting! We ventured out and about the ship again, had dinner and then thought we would get an ice cream and coffee. The market place closes at 6PM!!! Crazy! Why? We got a snack and coffee at one of the bars. #4. Back in our room getting ready for a restful evening. The rooms are definitely NOT sound proof. We were sandwiched between two families who were there to party! At 3am my husband opened our door and just stared at the ones to our right. The kids in the ones to our left kept opening and shutting closet doors - LOUD! It was not a restful night. Ask for the quietest room on board. #5. Thankful this is in the "bucket". Will not repeat this adventure. Read less

We chose Queen Mary as one of the activities from our Go Card. It was well worth the drive from Hollywood. The ship is both a hotel and a tourist attraction with dining, a little bit of shopping and guided tours. We chose the tour that depicts the glamorous era. Our tour guide was very friendly and service minded and the tour was interesting. We were shown some areas of the ship that were exclusive to first class passengers. What I lacked from the tour was a look into living quarters for the different passenger classes. I believe the ship is best experienced with a guided tour but there’s plenty of things to look at even if you’re on a tight budget. They have an exhibit of miniature passenger ships that I enjoyed. I would have wanted more statistics about the different ships though. We also watched a 20 minute film in the 4D-theater. Unfortunately it was a repetition of what we had learned on the tour. But I do believe they show different films at different hours. The film was enhanced with soap bubbles, vibrations and a rather sharp poke in the back.
