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.

An interesting place to visit with lots of interesting history. Expensive and a lot of walking. Once was enough.

I'm a cruiser so stepping on board from the ramp brought back memories. My son was staying there so the visit and walking tour was free. His room was more spacious than the inner cabin on the major lines I've cruised with. We took the free walking tour so you can see artifacts and photographs from the past including movie stars of that time.

We took the guided tour work a cruise officer. It was about an hour or so. It was incredible! The history of this ship is so interesting. The architecture of the ship and the original decorations are beautiful. I’d love to go back in the eve and do the haunted tour. I did t have any encounters while I was there, but maybe I will next time!

The customer service was great. They also have many tours and activities that you can do on the ship. There’s a theater inside too! Read less

The Art Deco you can find there is superb! This colossal, elegant ship has a Titanic flair, but it was bigger and faster than the Titanic. The 1,000-foot ship began her life in 1930 in Clyde, Scotland. Then New York, and her 516th and final voyage were to Long Beach December 9, 1967. It was bought for 3.43 million. It opened to the public in 1971!… Read more

It opened to the public in 1971! No need to pay the full entrance fee: follow my local tip: at the entrance, say you are going to the Observatory bar for a drink ... On the deck enjoy the stunning view of Long Beach that suddenly takes a Miami Feel, a reason why shows are filmed here pretending to be in Miami, like CSI Miami, Jane the Virgin... For the gourmet, try the Queen Mary Royal Sunday Champagne buffet. Decadent! Or wrap up a night with a classy dinner, (Downtown Abbey feel), and go to Sir Witson's restaurant (open Thursday to Sunday!). Their delicious classic is their Beef Wellington (vegetarians will find their bliss too) If you go with kids, don't miss the Lego Room where you can build legos and try to find the cat hidden in the Queen Mary Lego... we did! For the ones that like ghostly places, there are activities reported... when I taught French to one of the PR admin people, she said that often in their office, things were disappearing, cold, hot hair felt, and doors closing or opening for no reasons... To conclude a major historical fact: Churchill signed the D-Day declaration on the Queen Mary which saved the frogs and the rest of Europe from Fascism. Read less
