"Rooms are laid out for relaxation, not business, so travelers with work on their minds should stay elsewhere." Full review

"In the 1920s it was a posh beach club catering to the city's elite; now the Casa del Mar is one of SoCal's most luxurious and pricey beachfront hotels." Full review

"Docked for more than 40 years, the on-ship hotel attracts a mix of tourists and those attending events in the floating hotel's many party spaces." Full review

Frommer's
"If you're too young to have traveled on the old luxury liners, this is the perfect opportunity to experience the romance of an Atlantic crossing -- with no seasickness or cabin fever." Full review
Michelin Guide
"Permanently docked at Long Beach Harbor, this luxury liner boasts three decks of wood-paneled staterooms."
Star Service
"For visitors who fear California's tectonic tantrums (earthquakes) there is no better hotel than The Queen Mary. With that said, this floating flagship is in many ways more of an attraction." Full review

Note: No matter what you do, be sure to avoid the viewless and dark inner state rooms at all costs.
