Long Beach certainly lives up to its name, with long stretches of white sand beaches that are perfect for a sunset surf or a day spent in the sunshine. But Long Beach isn’t just about the beach – there are top end restaurants and bars to enjoy too, not to mention expansive national forests and parks within easy driving distance. The city itself has plenty to offer in terms of world-class entertainment, dining and shopping, which shouldn’t be missed. Read on to discover our picks for luxury and boutique hotels in Long Beach, California.

The Queen Mary

The Queen Mary is certainly the quirkiest boutique hotel in Long Beach – and probably one of the most unique in the world to be honest. Once a world-class ocean liner, the timewarp Queen Mary is now a hotel and entertainment venue, permanently stationed in Long Beach to give a taste of what transatlantic travel was like during the 1930s. It’s all oldy worldy opulence inside, with 346 original first-class staterooms and nine suites, adorned with rich wood paneling from all over the world, Art Deco built-ins and original artwork found on the ship during her heyday. There may be a few extra people staying too – rumour has it that the Queen Mary is one of the most haunted hotels in America. From $206.

The Broadlind Hotel

Located less than a kilometre from the beach in the artsy East Village district of downtown Long Beach, the Broadlind hotel exudes a chic, aparthotel atmosphere. Classified as a historical monument, the building itself seamlessly ties in old school touches with several modern design elements. Each of the rooms is thoughtfully furnished, and resembles an apartment with all the conveniences of home rather than a hotel room. You’ll find the comfortable rooms include a separate seating area, a fully-equipped kitchen, and city or coastal views. Convenience is a priority at the Broadlind, and extras like 24-hour on-site restaurants, keyless entry and an automatic check-in system make for a streamlined experience. From $183.
