Don’t expect anything fancy... it says that it is all about first class, but it is not. They are planning a huge renovation. Don’t stay there until it is done. One of the worst kept places I have stayed. The room was in disarray. There were two light bulbs out, one of the headboards was hanging off the wall, one of the sconces knob was missing and had a sharp needle to turn on the light that was above the bed. There was a nail coming out of the door frame at shoulder level that a previous guest covered up with a gum wrapper, the door frame front piece was about 1/4-1/2 in away from the rest of the frame. The room was so hot the front desk gave us a fan an refused to switch over to AC b/c a few rooms are all blocked together for heating and cooling so if one room wants heat, they won’t switch over to AC. The shower head was too short for guest above 5”5’ and no water pressure, as most of the water was dripping out the part where the shower head is attached to the pipe.

Besides events held at the queen Mary, it is permanently docked and is also a musuem to show it's decor and how it's been here and all the things it's been through and part of the ship, is a 4d immersive theater where you can see short films in 4d action with water splashing and bubbles, snow and other stuff being thrown at you while you watch whatever is being played on their big screen. We watched the story of Rudolph during the chill event at the queen Mary but you can watch the free screening with their VIP pass.

Moored in Long Beach Harbor adjacent to the dome – former home to Howard Hughes’ "Spruce Goose", the R.M.S. Queen Mary is a retired ocean liner, (sister to the Titanic), that sailed until 1967. It's now a historic hotel with rooms starting at $80/night. There are also five restaurants opened to the public as well as to guests, the best of which is the luxurious Sir Winston's Restaurant and Lounge found on the top most deck.

Recently named one of America’s Top 100 Most Romantic Restaurants, the five-star Sir Winston’s is absolutely one of the best date-night destinations. First, it’s got an unbeatable location. Moored in the Long Beach harbor, the wall of glass provides diners with an exceptional view of the wildlife and the city’s nighttime skyline.

Second, the food is beyond delicious. Starting with their succulent raisin nut bread, (which miraculously reappears on your table once you’ve eaten it – be forewarned), chilled crab timbale and arancini with parmigiano-reggiano custard, truffled endive and tepary bean purée, and moving to the aromatic truffle-scented lobster (big chunks) bisque and delectable entrees, including almond encrusted sea trout and crab-stuffed jumbo shrimp with lobster sauce, Sir Winston’s satiates discerning diners. Toss in extras like a palate-cleansing champagne sorbet, impeccable service, and chocolate-covered strawberries delivered with the check, and it's quite a memorable evening.

Before you jump ship, however, take one of the Queen Mary tours. The Queen Mary also offers loads of promotions, packages, and events.

Dining with the Spirits at Sir Winston’s is the ship's signature Halloween event that combines a dinner with a night tour of the ship’s paranormal hot spots. Their Barrel Series consists of four five-course meals paired with select liquors. Cigars are included in the all-inclusive $130 ticket price. (Gift certificates are available, too.)

Staff at the Queen Mary transform the Hughes' dome into a winter wonderland for the holidays. CHILL 2015 runs from November through January. Tickets start at just $24.99/child and $34.99/adult unless you opt for the E.L.F. (Express Lane Fast) Pass.

Note: Due to the historic nature of the ship, handicap accessibility is limited. There's an elevator to the main level and hotel lobby, but you've got to trudge up two sets of stairs and walk the entire length of the ship to get to Sir Winston's.

The Queen is such an exquisite piece of history! A beautiful, awe inspiring, wondrous ship to behold! The 80th anniversary brunch was delicious! An amazing place to eat, dine, stay, take a tour or just explore!

I would trust this app if they had the correct photo. It is The Queen Mary, not the brand new ship they show in their picture, that is Queen Mary 2nd

I will start off this review with the best tip I can give you. COME EARLY. Yes, it opens at 7, it doesn't matter. COME AT 6 or earlier. There will be lines to get in at 6 already, and it will be a long line. Once you're in line you have to get padded down then take a picture with your group. I would suggest you get in line as fast as you can so you can get into the mazes before the line starts becoming over an hour wait. The first maze we went to was voodoo village. That was pretty scary to me, maybe cause I wasn't into the voodoo stuff and its all freaky to me lol. Then we went up to the Queen Mary to go on the 3 mazes there. Soulmate was the longest wait for us at over an hour. But I did have fun. I can say it wasn't as scary for me when we went on the mazes on the Queen Mary. I would recommend going for sure! I enjoyed my time and had fun. It was my first Halloween maze type event, so it made me want to go to other mazes this month all around LA/OC area now!

Hotel, convention center and floating museum, the Queen Mary is a trip into the world of luxury travel before air travel.

Great tour. super interesting history. Did not spend the night on the ship, but have heard that the walls are a bit thin and noisy.

It could just be because we love cruising so much, but I was excited to be able to get on board the Queen Mary just to say I was onboard the famous ship...known as the Gray Ghost. It was a cruise ship, then a troop transport in WWII, and then it became a hotel in Long Beach in the 1960s. I loved walking through the ship and seeing the models of the various ships, and to walk the sundeck and see the bridge, etc. on board.

I have always loved coming here as a kid. Me and my husband stayed in the hotel on the boat and I loved it!

All the tours were already sold out by the time we got there but decided to venture on our own. Self guided was ok but I think that the actual tour with the guide would have been a lot more interesting. We went late at night and definitely could get the creepy vibe from this old ship.

Came here after the Chill event in the winter and was surprisingly the best part about our trip down to long beach. Queen Mary has pretty great picturesque views and there's tons to see. There's also tons of places to just sit down and enjoy the day.

Came back from our Ensenada weekend Cruise and stayed the night at the Queen Mary... Pretty cool the rooms are something different for sure, the bath tub still has the old switches for hot, cold and salt water! While we were there we took the tour many tours in and around the ship and well worth the time and money spent! Most people don't know how she was used to move troops overseas during the war crazy!!!

If you are a keen cruiser or are a history fan; then you'll love The Queen Mary. Now a floating hotel in Long Beach, California, the ex-Cunard Line vessel attracts thousands of visitors from around the world each year.

Built in the 1930s, RMS Queen Mary was arguably known as one of the grandest ocean liners ever to be built, and as such attracted a number of well-known passengers including dignitaries, Hollywood stars and even members of the Royal Family.

During the Second World War; the ship was transformed into a troopship for more than 15,000 personnel. I learned during my tour of the ship that she played a significant role and helped to guide forces to victory.

Following WWII; the ship was restored back to her original glory, and continued to delight guests young and old for many years to come.

The 1960s saw a significant rise in popularity of air travel; and as such ocean cruising became less popular and you could say very outdated. In 1967, the Queen Mary was retired from service and took up her current home in Long Beach, where she is now a floating hotel, visitor attraction, historic landmark and event venue.

I certainly recommend that you take a guided tour of the ship, as it is really quite fascinating to learn about her illustrious history. It goes without saying that a ship of her age is haunted; and that you can always take a ghost tour if you wish.

I enjoyed a meal in one of the restaurants onboard and was very impressed. The food and service was both of a high standard, and arguably the views and atmosphere were priceless. For the ultimate adventure, why not spend a night onboard the ship? That's something I would love to do. I was also recommend to try the weekly Sunday Champagne Brunch, however I did not have enough time.

Scary!!! Came here with a couple friends the night before halloween. Tickets for 30$. It took an hour for parking and 30 mins to get into the bathroom. There are about 5 different scare houses inside the large haunted harbor and they all have really long lines. I recommend buying a VIP pass for 100$ because you get a fast pass, a private bathroom, drink tickets, and appetizers. The one house I went in was really scary and long. Wish I would have had more time there and not had to worry about the lines being so long.
