A Year with Marriott Gold: Destination Long Beach Marriott

IMG_1271A exquisitely beautiful hotel adjacent to the airport with an outdoor area that is beautifully tranquil. This little gem is placed conveniently adjacent to the airport but is nothing like a typical airport hotel yet not like the JW in Houston either.

We were greeted with a warm smile at the front desk and throughout the hotel.  We were given a room on one of the higher floors as this was a simple upgrade.  We were only going to be here overnight so it was fine.  We were leaving out of the Los Angeles Port to catch our Princess Cruise.   This was in Long Beach and not too far from the port.  We chose it because of it’s rates and it’s location really.

The Lobby is stylishly designed with hues of blue, beige, and reminds me of sea foam I guess.   A really wonderful choice being we were headed out on a ocean cruise.

We had a chance to enjoy the pool area in the evening as friends came to visit us while we where there.

I have to say it is rather surprising that you do not really notice the large air craft sometimes just right over you head.  We had a nice conversation on one of the patio’s out doors and hardly noticed the aircraft flying above.

The rooms are nicely designed and we were presented with upgraded amenities.  The Thann soap smells wonderful.

The halls throughout are brightly decorated and as you can see feature a cherry style wood grain finish.

Every detail is beautiful from the exquisite flowers to the stylish and classic telephone.  I do love how Marriott takes care of all these design details to provide not only a comfortable stay but a feast for the eyes for those who care to look.

We had a chance to venture off property during our evening and were treated with some of the best Mexican food at a tiny little place around the corner from the hotel within walking distance.  It’s in a little strip type mall and literally is really close.

We enjoyed a morning breakfast at no cost because we are Marriott Gold members.  It offered an array of items typical of your hotel breakfast.  It was set in there main dining area adjacent to the outdoor pool area.

For my Marriott Gold status this was a great little property.  A nice little upgrade, free breakfast, high speed internet, a concierge lounge it was the weekend so I did not use it, and nice and pleasant staff.

This is a great little property for anyone visiting the area or flying in or our of Long Beach.  Not far from the Los Angeles Port in San Pedro and a great stop before your cruise.  It’s a little bit of tranquility before your next adventure.
