If you’re planning a visit to beautiful Long Beach, California, you might want to consider spending a night with the Queen – the Queen Mary, that is.
The Queen Mary is, of course, the legendary luxury British ocean liner that is now living in Los Angeles. The ship’s eighty-year history is almost as rich and delicious as the buffet of wonderful experiences that she offers guests today. Built in the 1930’s, the Queen Mary was created to be in a luxury class all her own. From her lavish wood-paneled Art Deco interiors, to her five finely appointed restaurants, to her opulent grand ballroom the Queen Mary was unparalleled. And she was over 100 feet longer than the Titanic! Now, that’s what I call a big deal!
Once the trans-Atlantic playground for the rich and famous, The Queen Mary is now happily moored in Long Beach Harbor where anyone visiting or living in Los Angeles can truly enjoy her splendor.
Want to take a voyage into history? You can embark on one of the ship’s many fascinating guided tours! Spend some time learning about the celebrities and dignitaries who visited the ship during its sailing glory days or maybe get to know one of the many ghosts that are purportedly haunting the ship today. A place has to be great for guests to want to stay there even after they’re dead, am I right?
Want to treat a loved one to an amazing meal? Take them for dining and drinks at one of the six amazing venues right on the ship. From casual to fine dining, you can find just the right place to suit your clothes (even if it’s a suit and tie). And do you self a fabulous flavor-filled favor and plan a visit to the Queen Mary’s world-famous Sunday Champagne Brunch.
Want to make some memories that will last a lifetime? I’d suggest you book a room on board the Queen Mary and spend a night (or several) in this lavish and truly one-of-a-kind hotel! And while your gobbling up the delicious interiors and start-of-the-art amenities, be sure to book some extra pampering for yourself at the Queen Mary Day Spa. I tell you, there’s nothing like a seaweed wrap while you’re floating on the sea.
From museum quality exhibitions to top-notch dining to sumptuous stateroom stays, the Queen Mary is a gorgeous getaway that’s fit for royalty!
