    My family and I don't travel too much, but with three small children (one being a baby) this was such a wonderful find for us. We drove to Long Beach to visit the Aquarium and found this place by chance. It is fairly new and is really nice. There is a lovely view from the pool area. The free breakfast was great for us...we didn't have to pack up the kids to go anywhere or prepare anything ourselves. We only stayed one night, but we liked it a lot. I guess the $10 a day parking fee can add up after a few days, but didn't seem like a big deal to us with only a one night stay...but they may want to consider changing this. The price per night was very good considering how nice the place is and that we could all fit nicely in one room/suite. We will go there again I'm sure.

    This hotel is great!  The entire staff is friendly, they love dogs (we had two big labs in town for Dock Dogs at the Convention Center this past weekend). I'm a travel agent, so I like trying out different hotels when I travel so I can suggest places for my clients to stay at. This hotel tops my list if I have anyone heading to Long Beach!  First impression upon arriving, limited parking, but there are auxillary lots on the sides and on the other side of the bridge, short walk.  The lobby smelled so clean and fresh. The room was clean and spacious. We chose the Residence Inn due to its location to the event, and the amenities in room, such as the full size fridge, dishwasher, sitting area, table, etc. The dogs have special diets so we needed to refrigerate their food.  The only complaint I have is the sofabed. It's a sofabed, I know, but I could feel every bar through the mattress. Maybe adding a memory foam pad would change this a bit?  It was only two nights though.  Well that, and the 70lb lab sprawling on that sofabed against me could be the reason I was uncomfortable?  Great location, only 2 minutes from downtown, there is a walking trail along the harbor that goes to the Queen Mary. The dogs loved their nightly walk.

    my parents have been staying here for about a month for my dad's work.  so i've visited them a few times and i must say, i will def check in here myself in the near future.  very clean and their breakfast is awesome.  not just your typical continental breakfast, but they bring out hot foods.  i also heard from my mom they serve free beer and wine on most weekdays.
    parking is not difficult at all.  it is a little confusing at first finding this place, and it does have a lot of construction.  but its good for pets and their lobby area is very nice and clean.  fireplace, tv, breafast dining area...and great view of the queen mary.

    The front desk lady Kandice was VERY helpful and polite. I was impressed with this hotels homely cozier atmosphere as well as a good breakfast (as long as you get there before 9am- everyone ate it all lol). The parking was very easy, very spacious, and great atmosphere to bring your children, or if you want less of a bar crowd, more of a family atmosphere. I would def recommend it if you would like a good nights sleep before your cruise out to mexico (what we are doing).

    I have stayed here three times. It's a great hotel for business trips. Like all the Residence Inns, it has full kitchens in all rooms, complimentary breakfast and afternoon snacks, etc.

    But unlike most Residence Inn's, its a new, high-rise building and it's really nice. No wandering around the parking lot to find your building number, no crazy kids next door playing on the stairs, no tiny lobby with four tables for breakfast, etc. (all of which I often find at other RI's).

    I really like to location too. For Long Beach, O.C., and even the south bay areas, it's great.

    If I had one complaint, it would be the confusing streets around the hotel because it's right next to the Queen Mary and if you go the wrong way, God help you.

    But if you like the Residence Inn concept, try this one. I think it might be the best choice in Long Beach.

    Fantastic customer service and amenities at this Residence Inn.  Like other Residence Inns (Marriott), they have great perks like meals and happy hour in the evenings, full breakfasts, media room.  The hotel is new, modern, clean.   Spacious rooms and bathrooms. Great view of the Harbor, Queen Mary, and downtown.  Safe running path behind the hotel around the harbor.

    My only complaints are the faint sounds of passing ships at night and the confusing directions to get there.

    Great central location in Long Beach.  It is close to the Queen Mary, downtown restaurants, the Aquarium and the Long Beach Marina.  Clean, quiet and comfortable rooms with breakfast buffet included.   It has views of the marina from both sides of the hotel.  Although one side can see the Queen Mary and cruise ships as the dock.

    The suite is huge. 2 large closets, partioned off bedroom and bathroom. Only thing that kilss it for this hotel is location. Really hard to access it. Its convenient to downtown. Free bus ride to major areas. Oh, and the parking gates are really too far off the curb to reach. Queen Mary is right down the road from this hotel. Staff is ok, not too friendly. Breakfast selection is good.

    We stayed at this Residence Inn while we were in Long Beach for a charity bike ride.  The entire staff could not have been more friendly & helpful.  The room -- which had a  kitchen -- was clean, fresh and comfortable.  We will definitely stay here again the next time we're in Long Beach.

    We had an ISSE show at the convention center.  I was a little disappointed that our hotel wasn't closer to the show however, coming over the bridge and getting to the hotel, omgosh it was such a beautiful veiw, the room was a nice size , very comfortable.  We drove to dinner and then came back again, what a beautiful site............. Nice walk around the waterfront at night.  PRICELESS!
    Breakfast the next morning was good, self buffet, saving grace, freshly made waffles with strawberries and whipped cream.
    We completely enjoyed our Stay.

    Such a cute residence inn!  Right next to the Queen Mary and Long beach harbor.  We had a room facing the water.  It's a little confusing finding the entrance though.  Free breakfast, great views, and friendly staff! Love this location.

    Great place, nice new lobby/rooms.  Excellent location right on the other side of the queen marry bridge.  

    Love the free breakfast.  Very modern rooms are spacious and comfortable.  

    The only downside is that you have to pay for parking.  It's $10/day.

    Other than that, this place is great.

    Robbed by maid. Stole my iPad out of the room. Crazy amount of paperwork and no action by Marriott. Avoid this hotel. Feral cats and one of the guests found a syringe on the grounds. Parking fees ridiculous.

    I love the location and I booked a one bedroom suite. They had me on the corner and it is very spacious compared to the other one bedroom suites I rented here in the past. Love the location and the view of the Queen Mary ship and downtown Long Beach. I love to jog around the area and it's very scenic. Hotel staff are superb and I like the breakfast. The only knock that kept it from being 5 stars is as follows: slow Internet, expensive parking ($12 per day) and the limited amount of parking space. I will come back but I hope they resolve the WiFi slowness issues and expand the parking lot in he future!

    This place was super nice...and they even have complimentary breakfast.

    The bad part was that I was traveling with a group of 55 people...we came by bus and the bus didn't fit in their regular parking lot.  On at least two occasions before heading down to Long Beach, we checked to make sure a bus would be no problem.  Boy were they wrong.  We had to park a fair amount away.  At the wee hours of the morning and the end of a long day, that walk to/from the hotel to/from the bus made a big difference.  I think that may deter us from going there again.  =/

    Stayed here for a school-related weekend workshop in Oct. 2011 and would book again with them any time!  I had a nice view of the boat launch and the dozen or more wild cats that live on the waterside rocks.  I loved the kitchenette, it was so convenient.  Most importantly, the staff was very helpful and courteous.
    Upon checkout, the front desk was flooded with customers and the staff kept their cool and their smiles.  Very impressive.

    Where do I start? Well when you first arrive to this property you have to drive over the bridge, to the left is a beautiful view of the Queen Mary and to the right is the hotel. When I first pulled up to the hotel, I noticed immediately how clean the parking area was and how the exterior was well kept up!!!

    Upon checking in I was greeted with a warm smile and a welcome :). After reading some of the reviews on yelp, I decided not to go with a Queen Mary View (Ship doesn't move but still nice to look at), and stay on the North side. Best decision ever, I had the opportunity to watch the sunrise and sunset, and at night when its clear you can see the Hollywood sign. Whether your looking for a view or not, the room itself is clean and very comfy. All the rooms include a kitchenette, and supplies to cook with (two top burner, microwave, frig, pan, plates, cups, silverware and dish soap). So don't forget to bring your munchies :).

    I was also fortunate enough to have arrived on a warm Cali sunny day and took advantage of the heated pool. At night during the week the hotel offers a social happy hour for all the guest to mingle with one another. They provide free food, wine, beer and even a karaoke machine! Overall, this hotel is the only one I stay at in Long Beach, close to downtown, 20 minutes from the beach, 20 minutes from DTLA, what more could you ask for. The Residence Inn continues to go beyond there expectations and that's why I always go back, and no its not just for the free breakfast (Love the Waffle Maker :) BTW!)

    Nice Hotel. Got package deal with free parking. Rode the free bus service to see the nearby Aquarium of the Pacific and Shoreline Village. We walked about 10 mins. to the Queen Mary along the channel. Nice breakfast. No affordable restaurants nearby, so we ordered pizza from Buona Pizza and had it delivered to our room the first night.

    By far one of the most disgusting hotels I have stayed in. I changed rooms twice before giving up and relenting to my date. I couldn't cancel the reservation and move to another hotel because I had booked the room through my corporate travel site. Both rooms were worn down. My room had stains all over the carpet and smelled like old sweat socks. Holes in the towels and missing drawers on the bathroom vanity. The only thing that was half was decent was that the bed was comfortable. Don't stay here if you can help it.

    With my wedding party flying in from out-of-town, I decided to indulge them in one of Long Beach's best kept secrets and have them treated like royalty.  My wedding was the same weekend as the royal highness, so it seemed fitting to live it up!  

    On the outside the Residence Hotel doesn't seem that impressive, but with each room equipped with a full kitchen (except for an oven, don't make my mistake), flat screen tv, a comfortable bed, and a drop dead gorgeous ocean view ( Yes ALL the rooms have an ocean view :)) it's not a wonder why this hotel has such high ratings.

    The hotel offers, studio rooms, one-bedrooms, and two-bedrooms, although a corner one-bedroom is the best value (IMHO).  They also serve a complimentary continental breakfast for all those early risers.  They have the DIY waffle-makers, which I absolutely LOVED, and served very tasty breakfast options!  Also, the lobby was decorated in modern and chic furnitures and decorations. So classy!  

    So why 4 stars instead of 5?
    1. The reservation process was a bitch!  Going through the corporate office to make a reservation only led to anxiety and frustration.  No one should go through that, let alone a bride. So, my advice to you travelers is to make the reservation in person at the Residence Inn Long Beach Downtown (if possible), the staff there is very nice and accommodating.    
    2. You have to pay $10 for parking per day (even if you're a guest there!!)  Sorry, that's just ridiculous and wrong.  They should change this policy.
    3. They charge a Long Beach tourism tax.  Probably not the hotel's fault, but with 9.750% sales tax, doesn't the city make enough money?

    Overall, it's a solid luxurious hotel at a reasonable price (if you don't count parking and tax) :P

    My husband and I greatly enjoyed the location and the service for our weekend trip to downtown long beach.   Rooms were big, clean, and comfortable, and very nice to have a kitchen.  I also loved the fact that the passport bus (which is free) stop was right outside of hotel that took us to stops at queen mary, the pike, pine ave, and the aquarium.  very nice to be able to not have to drive and pay for parking while we were out.
    I want to make a note of extra special high level service received by two extremely nice and helpful employees on the evening shift this past Saturday and and Sunday February 15 and 16 2014, Zander and Joana. They were extremely helpful and just had the best attitude, so friendly!!! I have been at many marriotts, including high level rating/category hotels, and these two staff provided the same high end service I expect at the larger marriott hotel chains.  they should certainly be commended and acknowledged that their service was recognized, appreciated, and make our stay even better.

    SWEET view, spacious suites and very well-kept all around.  They offer a great variety of options with the complimentary continental breakfast with DIY waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage, roasted potatoes and pancakes to go along with the usual bagels/muffins/cereal/yogurt.

    The lobby's also a prime spot for shooting some wedding photos ;)

    Alright. First off before I review the hotel I need to address one point. F all the construction! They should have adviced us beforehand because we seriously got lost almost every time trying to get back to the hotel. Complete streets blocked off without detour signs to show us the way around the mess....horrible! Had to get that off my chest so it wouldn't negatively affect my review on the hotel.

    Anyways, the location of the hotel was nice...next to the water so the views were beautiful, Pike right down the street along with the rest of the downtown area.

    Room was very nice. Equipped with microwave, electric stove, fridge, and dishwasher. Perfect for left overs or making yourself a quick meal. Beds were comfy and clean (not that iffy top comforter that seems to be washed only once every so often).

    Complementary breakfast every morning (6:30am-9:30)...better than the normal complementary breakfast with bagels and cheese pastries. Eggs, potatoes, waffle maker with blueberries and chocolate chips on the side, sausage patties, oatmeal, etc.

    Gym was nice enough. Just cardio equipment and free weights though. But very clean and air conditioned.

    Service was great. Staff was very nice and helpful.

    Downfall. Parking lot was very small and $10 a day to park there...I would think the high $130 a night would cover parking fees but I guess not. Dumb I thought.

    Beautiful hotel? Yes
    Great service? Yes
    A lot to offer? Yes (Pool, jacuzzi, bar, bonfire pit, outdoor patio, bbq grill)
    Good breakfast? No

    I remember that Residence Inn used to offer such a better tasting breakfast with more options as well. I would know because I worked for them for some time.

    They should offer a shuttle and maybe lower their market (snack shop) prices. So there's always room for improvement. But the rooms were super clean, spacious, and fully equipped.

    Purpose: leisure stay to celebrate boyfriend's birthday

    Pros:
    - Location: great view of the harbor and walking distance from the Queen Mary.
    - Upgrade: was honored. Was told I was upgraded to one of their largest rooms (not sure if it was true or they just told me that to make me feel special... hah)
    - Rewards Members: greeted with welcome bag (though I still got the points)
    - Breakfast: free breakfast for everyone
    - Staff: friendly, professional, and quick
    - Wifi: free wifi  for everyone
    - Kitchen: as with all Residence Inns, it had a clean kitchen. Additionally, it's close to some nearby grocery stores (if you're interested in using the kitchen and cooking).
    - Others: pull-out couch

    Average:
    - Rooms: standard quality, nothing amazing, but nothing alarming
    - Parking: standard hotel parking costs

    Cons:
    - People cook here... so expect both good and bad smells in the hallways...

    Overall: had a very pleasant and satisfying stay here and would stay here again!

    The maid walked in while I was sitting on the toilet, then they acted like I had the problem. They even accused me of using a racial slur - which I definitely did not do. I had a reservation for 2 days via points and I left after 1 day. However, simply because of this incident, they asked me to leave and said they were calling the Cops! It was insane and the maid was lying, but they chose to believe her and didn't care to hear one word from me.

    I'd avoid this place. The guy at the front is pretty nice and the views are all right. The breakfast buffet had a few healthy things. However, overall, this place sucks because it believes its lying staff and does not care what the guest says.

    One more thing. While I was there, the wifi internet went down for about 5-6 hours. Their tech made a call and did a few things to confirm it was down and "not their fault."

    Great accomadations BUT bad location difficult to get in and out of,  the area is confusing and there were no healthy food options.  Delivery was a nightmare (endless hold, long waits). No healthy food available to buy and no grocery stores or nearby restaurants.  It is illogical to have this type of a hotel in this location.

    I am honestly shocked that Marriott would allow this place to be called a Residence Inn. Appalling. They have "kids" running the front desk (alone at night) that have no idea how to trouble shoot or solve the problems the management have allowed to happen. Cable TV? No. "Sorry, I am not a cable guy, I don't know how to fix your station." Was the response to 2 nights (not one) of the TV freezing half way through a very poor quality (No HD just analog) movie. And, after booking a room with a "view" and fireplace. I got neither... Unless you call the parking lot a view. The front desk staff on the nights we stayed 12/13 & 12/14 2013 were dismissive, unhelpful and couldn't be bothered to even get up from the back room (away from their computer)  for several minutes as we stood there waiting... And then we were made to feel like they were doing us a favor for checking in or answering a question.

    Awful. Do not stay here.

    No way Marriott would let these people keep their franchise if they knew the bad service people are getting and ruining their reputation.

    I'm disgusted.

    PS. After reading a few other reviews I wish I had never trusted the Marriott name and stayed here. THIS IS NOT A TRUE MARRIOTT EXPERIENCE. I agree with several of them - worn arm chairs (like really garage sale level stuff) the awkwardness of the in & out parking gates and rudeness of the desk staff who obviously are as tired of letting people in and out as us customers are of asking to come in and out... to a hotel we are already paying for. Wires hanging out of the TVs. Lumpy and REALLY small tiny pillows. Cheap toiletries that are not refilled properly. WIFI that takes over 30 minutes (and more awkward conversations with the front desk kids) to get connected... A buffet that shuts down at 9:30/10:00 and serves undercooked eggs and is dirty.

    All in all... NEVER again. Gross. Save yourselves the money and go to a Hyatt or something...BAD BAD management. (Never saw one).

    Four and a half stars!!!!

    I loooove this Residence Inn and this is probably the only Residence Inn that I will ever hold in such high regard. Hubs and I stayed at this location for a couple of nights while attending a wedding at The Reef.

    The hotel is clean, modern and has a free breakfast buffet and happy hour daily. Its right on the water, has a great lap pool, is adjacent to the Queen Mary and is across the harbor from Downtown Long Beach.

    Upon entering, Hubs and I were warmly greeted by the staff. We were given a complimentary bottle of champagne upon being escorted to our corner one-bedroom suite on the top floor. (Room 1118, 11th floor). We were told by the front desk manager that it was one of the best rooms in the entire hotel, and rightfully so as it had sweeping views of the city and Queen Mary - which was spectacular in the evening. They even comped our parking!

    The room was new, clean and tastefully decorated, it had wall-to-wall windows, a huge bathroom and a comfy bed where we slept like babies. The living room was even large enough for us to entertain a party of 12 for late night cocktails!!! Although I have no plans to return to Long Beach soon, if I do I will definitely stay here again.

    I normally don't review chain hotels or restaurants but I couldn't resist doing one for the Residence Inn in Downtown Long Beach.

    This hotel is located on the other side of the bridge from downtown. It's among other nice places like the Mayan, the Reef, and the Queen Mary.

    The rooms are always so clean and so comfortable. I'm usually pretty critical when it comes to hotel rooms. They have to be absolutely spotless in my opinion. If I'm going to sleep in another bed and bathe in another shower that isn't my own, then it better be super clean in order for me to be comfortable. Vacation is all about relaxation and it's kind of hard to relax if you feel like your room is dirty. That's never the case here.

    They have a pretty good free breakfast in the morning as well. They have sausage and bacon, waffles, yogurt, eggs, muffins, coffee, juice, and a lot of the other typical free breakfast foods.

    The staff is always friendly and helpful. They're knowledgeable about the area and they have really good recommendations about where to go in downtown.

    I like to get a room that faces the Queen Mary. That way you can see the ship and some of the Long Beach skyline. It looks absolutely beautiful at night.

    I love the little walk that runs between the hotel and the water and goes all the way to the Queen Mary. You can easily walk to the Queen Mary and not have to worry about paying for parking there. You can also walk on the bridge that connects to downtown Long Beach. It's a little bit of a walk and it can get kind of cold with the water being right there, but again, you don't need to worry about paying for parking once you're in downtown.

    Oh, and that little walk to the Queen Mary? My husband and I found $62 dollars stuck in a bush. That was pretty awesome. :)

    I REALLY liked this hotel! The price was good, the service was good, and the location was good. It was very pretty, right on the island, and was very close to downtown (although I think you would need a car to get anywhere because it is across a bridge).

    I got a great price for my room and their rooms are more like suites. Pullout sofa bed, kitchenette, great big TV, desk and dining table, etc. I liked the decor, as well, lots of warm colors. There was a view of the water, and you could open your windows (which you can't do at a lot of hotels) and feel the breeze.

    Brian checked us in and he was super friendly and polite. He made conservation with us about where we were from, gave dinner recommendations, and even remembered our names when we walked past him later that evening!

    On our second night we had a problem with the heating/AC system making a clicking noise every 30 seconds. It drove us crazy and we literally couldn't sleep. We called down to the front desk, around 10:30/11:00pm, and they immedietly gave us a key to the room right next to ours, so that we could go in there and sleep and not have to worry about packing up our stuff. I was so surprised that they took immediate action, rather than trying to solve the problem at hand (fix the clicking nose) and really made it easy for us. To top it off, due to this problem that we had (that didn't end up being a problem because they were so helpful!), they comped us one day of parking. Yay!

    Which brings me to why they don't have 5 stars. The parking costs $15.00 a day. I think that this is a bit much as there wasn't other parking in the area so you are kind of stuck paying that price. But, they do offer a free breakfast which I am sure is a plus for some people (I don't eat breakfast foods but it appeared to be popular with lots of people enjoying themselves!). Also, the beds were a bit hard and the pillows a bit too soft.

    However, the fantastic service (Thanks Brian and I believe the other woman was Patty?) and the nice and clean rooms made up for everything. I highly recommend this hotel!

    We really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were really nice and spacious and very clean. Nice modern decorations and a great location just a couple of minutes from the pier and aquarium and there is a free shuttle service.

    Created a profile just to review this hotel. It is a nice hotel, I am just unhappy with how they try to milk you for extra $. It is $17 a day just to park your car in the parking lot. Wifi is free, but the free "high speed" version is almost worthless. It wouldn't even load my facebook properly, forget about streaming videos. So they get you for another $5 per day there. When I'm paying $150 a night already for a room I don't want to have to pay for things like this that should be free.

    This place falls between 3-4 stars, but after some though I went with 3 mostly due to the cramped parking lot and bad coffee. One night I (and 2 others) had to park on the 20 min line because all the spots were taken.

    The other misnomer here is that its not really in LB Downtown. They are located way off downtown and you can't walk to anything from this location.

    On the positive side: The rooms are spacious, the staff relatively friendly and they have great plasma tv's that are mounted on the wall and can be tilted to view from any part of the room. Beds are very comfortable and they have nicely sized showers(no tubs).

    On the negative side: The free Internet is SLOW as shit. You can not watch youtube videos or stream anything! Pick up some emails and maybe scan some news stories, thats about it. Breakfast is nothing special and coffee is nasty. You want Starbucks, then you need to drive about 10 min to get into downtown LB.

    Overall not a bad deal. Parking is $10/day and rooms are reasonably priced.

    This is a great hotel with large rooms, nice staff and a great view. My mom stayed here when she came to visit us and we went and joined her for the evening social, which on some nights has S'mores makin's and other nights has basically a full and free dinner! The hotel rooms have a full kitchen and feel like a loft apartment (I think some have actual bedrooms as well). Free Wifi included and an outdoor pool. It's a little annoying going over the bridge to get there, but it's also much quieter than hotels in downtown Long Beach since it overlooks the water. She got a great night's sleep (and slept through the free breakfast!). She stayed at the Hotel Maya last time, and the Residence is MUCH preferred for myriad reasons.

    Nice Choice Along The Ocean.....

    Pros:     Great views from the higher floors.  Better than usual free breakfast.  Housekeeping.
    Cons:     Frayed furnishings.  Visitors must pay $12/day for parking.

    Suggestions:  Request a room as high as possible...preferably facing the Queen Mary.

    My wife and I were invited to the wedding of the son of a close friend scheduled for the evening of December 2nd at the Marriott Maya hotel in Long Beach.  Family and relatives of the couple coming to town for the weekend festivities needed a place to stay for 2 or 3 nights.  One member of the party with experience and talent in arranging get-togethers assumed the role of travel agent and decided the Residence Inn...one block from the Maya on a narrow island not far from the Queen Mary...had the best combination of facilities and price.

    -   Room:  We had a one bedroom unit with a king size bed on the top floor.  Our view was great. The first section was a combination living room and kitchen.  The former had a sofa, 2 tables, chairs, an ottoman and 32 inch flat screen TV.  Furniture was fine, except the ottoman and upholstered chairs were frayed along the edges. The kitchen was small, but well equipped and clean.

    The bedroom was fairly spacious, though I'd get claustrophobic during an extended stay.  The bathroom was a good size, although the sink area...located to the outside...was small and easily cluttered.  Closet space was lacking, but there were plenty of drawers for various belongings.

    Housekeeping was excellent.  Cleaning was thorough and efficient and the employees we met were very cordial and helpful.

    -   Location:  The Residence Inn is not actually in downtown Long Beach, but a mile south and can only be reached using either of 2 bridges.  Since this strip of land is just a few blocks wide at some points, access to the hotel is limited to one road with a couple of loopy drives.  Be careful!  Watch for signs and follow their instructions!

    -   Exterior and Parking:  Given the scarcity of space, this Residence Inn is much taller ( 11 floors ) than the usual 2 or 3 story version found in most locations.  The building appears relatively new ( newer than it actually is ) and the grounds are clean and well maintained with flowers.  There's plenty of parking, although it's only on the east side facing the Queen Mary so you might need to park a block or 2 toward the Hotel Maya during busy times.  It does cost $12 per day, but that's validated for hotel guests.

    -   Reception and Lobby:  The Reception Desk is fairly small, but does the job.  There was a wait to check in when we arrived since 1 of the people manning the desk was on a break.  However, at most other times, 2 employees were available.  An area to the right of the desk serves as a mini 7-11, but also includes a choice of wine...some refrigerated.

    The lobby area is quite expansive with lots of comfortable chairs and sofas facing two 40 inch flat screen TVs.  A small outdoor pool is located across the lobby from the Reception Desk facing downtown Long Beach.

    -   Breakfast:  This meal is served buffet style with more choices of hot and cold food than other mid priced hotels we've seen in the past few years.  Quality was also a notch or 2 higher.  My only quibble is we were told the hours of operation were 6 AM to 10 AM.  Apparently, that's only valid Saturday and Sunday.  It closes at 930 AM on weekdays which we discovered upon arriving at that time on a Monday.  However, the lights stayed on long enough for us to gather our food.

    -   Price and Value:   Our 2 nights ( Saturday and Sunday ) were $123 each plus taxes.  That would be reasonable without the free breakfast, but including it raised the value to a high level.

    Would we return to the Residence Inn in Long Beach?  If value was the top concern...yes.  However, if we were sightseeing for 2-3 days and didn't mind a higher tab, I'd try the Maya Hotel a block or 2 away.  It looked a bit more luxurious and worth investigating.

    Stayed for only a night but it was nice. Comfortable accommodations: nice king-size bed, comfy pillows, good bathroom, kitchenette and sitting area. The whole room was pretty clean (although there were a few stains on the carpet but I'm assuming they just can't get them out.) This was perfect for us and our toddler. We couldn't score a room with a spectacular view but it was still nice enough with a view of the boat launch area and water ... we also had a view of the parking lot;)
    Breakfast was decent, nothing to write home about but did the job and filled our stomachs before our long drive back home.
    Definitely would stay here again. Wished we could have taken advantage of the free shuttle to downtown. The night view from the hotel of downtown looked very cool.
    PS: Parking costs $17 a day (boo) and you may have to park in the overflow area but it looks like there's enough parking for everyone.

    First time staying in a hotel in Long Beach, CA and could not have picked a better one! Very good location in downtown, and was very convenient for our needs. Very comfortable and well appointed. Got a package which included parking and breakfast which made improved the value. If you have the budget, the Residence Inn Long Beach Downtown is a great choice.

    Great place to ring in the New Year next to the Queen Mary this spot is awesome in so many aspects. Set apart from everything on its only little private lot next to the harbor but yet so very close to restaurants and fun activities. Friendly staff, great kitchenette rooms, nice exercise room with complimentary head phones. Variety of great breakfast items. Only downer is parking fees but it is monitored and keeps you feeling safe. Can't forget the great waterfront walk that takes you all the way down to the Queen Mary and only took about 15 minutes. I would like to go back someday :)

    Spectacular hotel, located across the Harbor from Downtown Long Beach. Gorgeous view of the city, the Queen Mary, and the boats in the Harbor.

    Excellent Marriott property with excellent ammenities for business travelers. Free breakfast every morning, manager's cocktail hour 3 nights a week with heavy hors d'overues which can double for dinner for those on a limited budget.

    Rooms are very spacious with a comfortable bed, living room area, comfy desk, and a full kitchen, along with a walk-in marble shower and very elegant bath.

    Outdoor pool, gym, and lovely walking / jogging trails along the water.

    It's a nice place to spend the week.

    Clean rooms, comes as advertised, free wifi and paid if you want to do any streaming. Only downside which isn't too much a big deal is the $17 parking per night. Would recommend for an extended stay as well as a short visit.

    This hotel was a great choice! Arrived in Long Beach later than expected to go to the Queen Mary Dark Harbor event and wanted to find a hotel close (in walking distance) to the ship but not too pricey. Yelped nearby hotels and called a few and came across the Resident Inn. PERFECT SPOT, right on the water and within 1 mile of the Queen Mary. Our room was awesome! Kitchentte - which we didnt even notice at first because lights were off, KING tempurpedic bed, widescreen tv, pullout couch and a cute little desk. Our room viewed the water and the lit up bridge and was probably one of the best places my boyfriend and I have stayed so far for that price!

    Staff was really nice. We got back to the hotel around 2am and needed food. The woman at the front desk suggested Big E pizza which delivered to our room up until 3am, otherwise they had a variety of snacks, burritos and tv dinners. The hotel also has wine and beer in their little mini market which was cool. :)

    Complimentary breakfast was from 7-10am and had a decent selection - was pretty tastey for FREE breakfast!

    HUGE downfall about this hotel and the reason to take away a star was that we had to pay $15 to park. We are STAYING at the hotel and we have to pay ??! That was a total joke even if we could go in and out as much as we like, we stayed for ONE night so couldnt that have been comped perhaps? Second part of the downfall was I guess the heater didnt kick on. It got FREEZING with our AC on so we shut it off and it still was cold so we cranked the heater but it seemed to be blowing cold air... forgot about it and snuggled in our giant bed but woke up a few hours later to it getting SUPER HOT in the room. Weird AC UNIT but not a deal breaker. Everything else good about this place made up for that.

    Overall, had a great stay at this hotel. It was clean and comfortable and will definitely come back when we come to LB again. Still close to downtown but a little more secluded and very quiet near the water.

    Last year we had a last minute stay due to a meeting and so this was an option available and so we took a chance, and boy we were suprised!!!  This Residence Inn was a breath of fresh air!  We love the water and did not expect it to be "right on the water".  It was a little hard to find but once we were on the right road, we found the property with no problems.  I was upgraded due to Elite status and got a corner water view (strong suggestion, book it!!!)  It was a one bedroom corner room to be exact and it had the most beautiful view, we were on the 2nd floor and we could hear the water all night and during the day we could watch Catalina Express cruise in and out of their docking marina.  We were able to get a wonderful breakfast and there was plenty of seating area to eat at and could even take some of it up to our room.  

    This property is not next to any eating area's but you can drive over the bridge to get there.  This is on the same side as the Queen Mary, but still not that close to walk.

    I love this hotel, the staff is always friendly, love the decor and wonderful views!

    First, the positives.  This place is pretty clean, and the beds are very comfortable.  Pretty standard Residence Inn type of stuff.  The view is also pretty nice from the higher levels.

    There are some pretty major negatives, however.  The free WiFi is a complete joke.  You might get it to work for 5 seconds, but then it drops, and it could be a long time until you get anything to work again.  As a dad with two teenagers who were counting on using the wifi, this caused more frustration than the price of the hotel was worth.  

    Further, getting to this place was incredibly difficult, and involved driving in and out of another business' parking lot about half a mile up the road.  What in the world!?!  I've never been to a hotel that was more difficult to get to.

    Finally, there aren't many options for eating around here, which means we'll be driving somewhere else, which means we'll be driving through that other parking lot.  Seclusion is nice, but this place is maybe too secluded from everything else.  

    We won't be staying here again.

    For my weekend Long Beach getaway, I tried 2 different Marriott locations... the Renaissance Long Beach & the Residence Inn Long Beach Downtown. If I were to ever come back to LB, I would not stay at the Residence Inn LB Downtown again.

    I give it 3 stars because the rooms are very nice and spacious, and I appreciated the included hot breakfast.

    I did NOT like:
    - The location. It's on the south side of the bridge, separated from the rest of downtown, and did not feel convenient. I personally enjoy lots of walking. But even though you technically could still walk across the bridge (which I did), it's not something you'd do, for example, if you wanted to go out at night or walk to a restaurant.
    - My view. When I checked in, the person at the front desk asked if I wanted a room with a view of the Queen Mary. I asked her, "Should I? Is it nice?" She responded that everyone always likes the view, then proceeded to find out that no such room would be available for me, and that they were all booked up. So, I was instead on the other side of the building, with a 1/4 view of the water.
    - The pool. It was an awkward dinky pool -not much better than a lap pool- just outside the entry, next to the parking lot.
    - Lack of acknowledgement of Marriott elite status, nor any apparent effort to be accommodating.

    Also, the gate to exit the parking lot is odd, because it always asks you to pay for parking, even if you are staying at the hotel (parking is charged on the hotel bill). You have to press the intercom button for the hotel staff to open the gate for you. When I was leaving, I pressed the button, some lady came on the intercom and asked how she could help, and I literally said, "Hi, I..." and then I was hung up on and the gate opened for me. It seemed kind of awkward.

    The short of it:
    Kind of a pain to get to and very few restaurants in the immediate (read walkable) area.

    Other details:
    The rooms were your usual RI, but the furnishings were JUNK. There was even a letter of apology for the condition of the chair in the room, really? The view didn't really matter since the windows were filthy!

    Parking was a pain because you have to keep a card with you to get in and out.

    The gym equipment was in working order.

    I was not recognized as Rewards member.

    Will stay elsewhere when I return.

    Used Marriott's points for a free night before a cruise to Mexico. 15,000 pts. for 1 night.
    It's literally about a mile from Carnival's parking garage and the Queen Mary.
    This will be my layover hotel before going on cruises. Quiet, clean and with great views.

    This is a phenomenal place to stay for the business traveler. Great breakfast with great coffee (Seattlelite talking here), clean gym with top-of-the-line cardio machines, good wireless, and an evening reception with some food, wine and beer. The only downside is that because of building's position, the pool area never gets the sun in the afternoon; but on the flipside, it has a serene view of the water and is very relaxing. Truly a great place to stay.

    Great place to stay. I'm here for business.  Great hot breakfast selection.  Gorgeous comfy rooms.  Full kitchen, so you have room for your dinner leftovers in the fridge..The view is phenomenal.  I personally like wildlife, so seeing the raccoons was an added bonus for me.  I love that they are pet friendly, as many dogs stay here. And if the owner is nice (and they typically are) they allow me to pet their dog as I am missing mine..

    The hard part is you really can't get there from here. With construction going on you will literally pass the hotel before you can turn in. Doesn't matter which way your coming from, you will most likely pass it first before you actually get there. Hence you can't get there from here!  If you ask for directions from one of the staff, they will tell you an easy way to get here.

    Yes you pay to park. It's $17/day.  Everything around here is that way.  I paid $50/day in Chicago, so this is a bargain.  

    The hotel is very clean, beds are comfy. If your here thru the week don't forget about the mix cocktail and snack hour. Free Beer and wine and a munchy of sorts is a perfect way to start the evening.  

    The staff was very friendly, even scanned my receipts so I could turn in my expenses. Just have a flash drive.
    Zander is a hoot! He's a keeper R.I.b.M.
    The GM just as nice, and his directions rocked!

    I was pleasantly surprised with a complimentary laundry. They gave me quarters to wash and dry a load, along with tide & bounce.  Yay I'm going home with some clean clothes.  Or was it a sign my clothes were stinky? ;)

    I'll be back and when I do I'll be staying here!

    TY for a perfect stay!

    A beautiful room and outstanding lobby area.  Breakfast each morning was delicious and fresh.  Staff is wonderful, and the price was more than reasonable.   There is an evening reception with more than just finger foods.  I'm glad I had a car, as restaurants within walking distance are limited.   My single complaint is getting here.  I travel often to unfamiliar locations.  I have yet to find a direct route into the parking lot from the 710.  Beautiful place.  I will be back...as soon as I find it again.

    The bf (now hubby) and I had to find a hotel to get ready at for our wedding.  We had wanted to go to the hotel at the Pike, but it was WAY overtly expensive for what it was offering.  Yes, it was close to our venue, but not necessarily worth the price.  Plus, there was a convention going on that weekend, which meant they literally quadrupled the price of a room ($400 - $600).  Fuhgeddaboutit.

    So, the bf and I searched through Travelocity, Yelp, Expedia, etc. to find a hotel that was somewhat close to our venue and that had a good price.  I found all the Yelp reviews for Residence Inn Downtown Long Beach (NOT the one called Residence Inn Long Beach).  We decided to visit the place on a Sunday to at least scope it out and see if it would fit our needs.  Although it meant that we'd have to drive over the bridge to get here, it wasn't too difficult to get to.  Parking is $17 a day, but the first 20 minutes is free.  

    We had a good first impression of the place.  Very clean, very organized.  Cute and modern lobby area.  Outdoor fireplace, and outdoor swimming pool.  Didn't get the chance to check out the rooms, but Yelp helped in that respect with Yelpers' pictures.

    After our visit, bf (now hubby) went online to get an idea on how much a block of rooms would be.  After the quote, I believe someone from the hotel contacted him, got more information, and we were set.  Our guests could go to our wedding website, click on the hotel link, and reserve a room for the lower rate.  Easy peasy.

    Days before the wedding, we got emails from the hotel about how to get to the hotel, and emails confirming our reservation.  I like that.  Made me feel that they did have our reservation, and that there shouldn't be any issues.

    When we did arrive, check-in was very quick and simple.  The 20 minute loading was a bit of a joke, considering that I was getting dropped off with a carful of stuff.  Fortunately, we improvised and I got the necessities so that the car left before our 20 minutes were up.

    Bf (now hubby) was checking in the next day, where he was able to actually do an early check-in (which we desperately needed) by calling early.  So, yes, early check-in is possible, but only if the number of rooms are permitting.

    Everyone's rooms were great.  Very clean, and there wasn't anything that we can pick on.  Each room isn't exactly the same, though.  I actually had a shower door, while the bf's room had a shower curtain.  I had a real light in the bathroom, while his bathroom light produced light in the same velocity as a nightlight.  It was kind of sad.  Water pressure and speed of the water going hot was great!

    Also, the cable would go out on the TV every so often.  Made me think that the hotel room was possessed.

    Full-size fridge, which was SUPER-helpful in storing food.  The kitchen even has a hot plate if you want to cook something.  Utensils and plateware were also available, and the dishwasher worked for us!

    Breakfast was okay.  Scrambled eggs, sausage patties, waffles, fruit, cereal, etc.  I mainly had the scrambled eggs and sausage patties with their salsa.  Pretty good.  They also have around 4 juices, as well as coffee and hot tea.

    Eric, the morning supervisor was great.  Apparently, one of our guests left their iPads in their room.  Eric called me, I handed the hotel information to our guest, the guest called the hotel and spoke to Eric, and the iPad was packaged and sent on its way home.  It's now back in the hands of our guest.  Eric also helped out my wedding vendors with their validated parking passes, which hubby and I greatly appreciated.

    Only thing that was a little bit of a hiccup is that even though I didn't have a car, they still charged me $17 per day parking.  They quickly corrected it when I pointed it out, but I would've thought they would have something in the system to let them know if I had a parking pass programmed or not.  

    May use this place again if we have to :)

    Note: in order to get in/out privileges, you need to get your parking pass programmed!  Also, to use the wifi on your phone, you need to open up the internet browser FIRST to login, and then you'll have access to internet.

    I was surprised in a good way. Way more iris then cons. The only con was the bed was not as comfortable as I'd like but that's just a clear sign I'm about to enter my 30s staff was nice and amenities were great. Breakfast was decent and location was ok. Being on the other side of the water might have made more sense. We were in turn for the Grand Prix and there seemed to be a lot of activity goin on over on the other side.

    I had a reward certificate that was expiring in a few weeks and decided to utilize it here. I used my new application on my phone from Marriott to verify my room was ready for an early afternoon check in. When I arrived I was greeted with a VIP package which included two bottles of water, Pepperidge Farm cookies and a bag of pretzels. In addition, I was given welcome reward points and the overnight parking was comped.

    This Residence Inn is unique since the units aren't like condos but similar to a Courtyard or Fairfield Inn. Each unit has an equipped kitchen, living room, office area and pet friendly which my pug IZ experienced for the first time since I adopted him from Pasadena SPCA. Hot breakfast is served daily and there's happy hour get together Monday through Wednesday.

    My room has a view of the Queen Mary , Shoreline Village and nearby many retail shops and restaurants which was convenient.

    I would suggest this hotel if you're here for business or pleasure.

    Let's me say, this property surprised the heck out of me and I enjoyed my room and stay and I will be back. I originally went to the Renaissance in downtown and they couldn't find my reservation so I had them check around and the rude guest service girl Lindsey actually sent me to this Hotel the wrong one; as a joke she thought would be funny. I became annoyed when she couldn't find my reservation and she had to find me by my rewards number and look it up under that, my reservation was actually for the property at Willow St, she sent me to The Queensway location, I told her I was from out of town. It's fine, I will have corporate deal with her. Anyway when I arrived at this location the Wonderful guest services guy Eric couldn't find my reservation but he called over to the other property and cancelled my reservation there and gave me a great Oceanview room and comped my parking because Lindsey at the other Marriott property was an asshole and he didn't want me to leave Long Beach with a bad taste in my mouth for the Marriott.
    My room was Spacious with a desk, eating area (Kitchenette), chairs, sofas, dressers and a great bathroom. This property has a fitness room a great pool and is directly next to a walking path right along the water, I saw a small whale on my walk the 1st morning, It's amazing and on a clear morning you can view the entire downtown Long Beach skyline and the Queen Mary, OOh and they have great Wi-if that keeps you connected being a Silicon Valley girl, I needed that.
    All in all, The property is Gorgeous and The Staff was sweet, diligent and provided Awesome service even my housekeeper Estela. Thank you Residence Inn at Queensway in Long Beach for keeping up that stellar Marriott reputation . Eric you are amazing and I will be sure to let the corporate office know how Marvelous you really are. Thank you.

    Out of all the hotels I've been to, this hotel is the fastest and most efficient with check-ins and cleaning.

    When me and my family arrived yesterday around 11am to the hotel, we were checked in, in just 10 mins and thats including two rooms! Even though our check-in was suppose to be at 4pm, the manager Shannon Walker had reserved our rooms for anytime check-in due to our situation. The customer service is super friendly. They cater to their guests with accommodations and everything else.

    The self-parking is at $17 and that includes in-and-out privileges. Intercontinental breakfast starts at 8am which includes: scrambled eggs, sausage patties, red skin potatoes, waffles station & pancakes, cereals & oatmeal, bevs, fruits, breads, etc. The food was actually good for what it is. It's frequently stocked and made fresh. The lobby space includes comfy lounge seating with a view of the water deck and downtown. Yes, there is a pool with a jacuzzi! so go ahead and pack your swim wear.

    Overall, my experience was great. The rooms are clean and includes a mini kitchen with a fold-out sofa bed in the living room! That is a plus for sure. I definitely recommend this hotel for guests staying in Long Beach because 1) It's right at the ocean front and 2) It's 5 mins away from downtown and a min away from nearby restaurants/activity areas.

    One of the best hotels!
