Actually, I did. In March last year I stayed for 5 nights while working on my next novel.  We used the restaurants, took tours and thoroughly enjoyed our cruise to nostalgia .  I even met with  the producer who bought the rights to my first novel. He loved it. Next time in LA  I stop by.

Great hotel! You really feel immersed in 1936 when the ship made its first crossing to New York. It was amazing to see the ship be almost original to its time period. You can walk around the different decks and see and feel the history. The tours of the ship were great too! My mom and I did a Glory Days tour with James - he is phenomenal! This hotel is truly an experience. The rooms and bathrooms are old, but historical, and very comfortable. The food on ship is good, but very expensive. There is free city bus that comes directly to the Queen Mary and goes to the Shoreline Village (which is a great place to eat and walk around). The bus is great because there is no other food in the area, except on the ship or at Shoreline Village or the Pike.

Sure, I was QM Tour Guide from 1976—1980, and I love the grand old lady, but my bias is well-founded. Enjoy a fine meal at Sir Winston's on Sun Deck, or pop in to Observation Bar on Promenade Deck, then take a relaxing stroll on Sun Deck and watch the lights of Long Beach sparkle on the bay. I still enjoy showing friends around for unofficial tours of the decks. Stay in a starboard side cabin for a view of the city, or try a port side room to watch one of the world's busiest harbors in action. Good times.

I am just checking out from disappointing experience. I was expecting things old,but they are not old, they are unkept, run down and the new stuff such as tv, light bulbs, sink faucets do not work. I was changed to another room, but things did not get better. The entrance elevators were not working by the time i checked out. They have only one golf cart to take clients from the parking lot to the hotel. Any one who has gone in a cruise knows the hike from parking to ship and from edge of ship to actually a room and no elevators and no carts prepare to haul your luggage. Dirty, bad service, no many things working. Except the restaurant. Good food... not for that money but good food. I do not recommend this hotel. Go another and just visit it for a tour if you are interested

This review is as a tourist of the ship - not as a guest staying overnight. Walking the decks of this historic ship is great. Even without buying a tour, there are shops, restaurants, and great views of the harbour. There are multiple tours to check out, including the "haunted" ones which are great fun and provide interesting pieces of history. They also give you access to parts of the ship you can't see otherwise. The Queen Mary is a fun place to visit! Pro tip - you may have a bit of a walk when parking, especially if arriving later in the day. Check to make sure there aren't any events going on when you plan to visit, they can make your walk from parking even longer!

One star for the ship, because it's the f-ing Queen Mary. She's great & can't help who owns her. Our experience booking our wedding was a nightmare. This review is long - I could give a laundry list of issues. but I don't have room. Our initial experience with Kathy French, the sales manager, was a positive one. Unfortunately, as soon as there was ink was on the contract, we had nothing but trouble. The room block was a mess. The hotel almost always offered a cheaper rate than they one they offered us for our group rate. We finally scheduled our tasting (only available between 11-2 on Tuesdays & Thursdays...awesome ). The tasting went well - but a month passed before we could get a final event order. Hengameh Hosseinioun finally contacted us, let us know that Kathy French was no longer with the Queen Mary, that she was to be our event manager. I will say that of the three, she was certainly the best - but the problems continued right off the bat when we were told that there were "incomplete notes" of what we wanted from the tasting, so we had to piece back together everything that we had asked for from memory (after a month!). When we arrived at the Queen Mary for check-in on Friday, we followed the signs for "Hotel Guest Parking" were very pleased to immediately find an open place. Before I could even get out of my car, a valet attendant barked at us that we were not allowed to park there - it was for valet parking only. I explained that I only wanted to unload the vehicle, that as soon as I was done, I would move my car. He refused, told me that I could either pull my car up next to the entrance allow them to unload it for me, or I would have to go park in the guest parking unload it there. The lots for guests were hundreds of yards away. I guess it is more important that the valets don't walk than the guests. I asked for a cart so that I could unload my car bring the items we needed for the wedding to the room. The bellhop told me that he wasn't allowed to give up the cart - he explained that it was - in fact - "against the law" for me to use the cart. After complaining, I was told I could "go to security" they would let me use one - if, only if I left them my ID. When I asked how our guests would know where to go when they arrived, we were assured that there would be plenty of signs directing them along the way, that members of staff would be nearby to direct people. There were actually only a couple of signs - unclear at all, several of our guests got completely lost. Some were even directed to the wrong wedding! The thing that upset me the most about the day happened at the end of the ceremony, when we were expecting to come back find our families waiting for photos (this was also listed on the timeline). When we came back, they were all gone! As it turned out, they were told by that they were to all go down to the Salon.... that there was a "change of plans" the photos were being done elsewhere. NO ONE told the Queen Mary staff that we were making any change to the photographs. We ended up having to waste more time attempting to get our family members back for the photographs. Only some were able to make it. My 83 year old grandfather just could not make the trip back up - the same with the bride's 93 year old aunt, three cousins in their 80s. We were pleased with the way our ceremony reception turned out - but this was despite the staff at the Queen Mary, not because of it. We were completely dissatisfied with the service hospitality we received at our event during the planning of our wedding. The Queen Mary is a unique venue, you might still want to plan an event there... If you do so, make sure you have an event coordinator, a few other people willing to look out for your interests the day of the event.

Even though modern cruise ships are much larger, the Queen Mary still has a larger than life personality when you are up close. The best part about this cruise ship is that you will never get sea sick. The registration desk is manned by a most courteous crew. They will check you in and help you with any question you have whether it's about the Queen Mary or surround Long Beach area. Walking down the hall to your room is just like being on a standard cruise ship with the almost infinite hallway to the bow and to the stern. The Queen Mary crew has done a fantastic job of keeping the ship just like it was back in the 1930's through the 1950's, from authentic polished wood paneling, original artwork, Art Deco style, and operable portholes. The Deluxe Stateroom (with either a king bed or two twin beds) was once the preferred choice for first-class travelers when the ship was in operation. Starboard side rooms have a view of Rainbow Harbor. Standard amenities include: operable portholes, 32" LCD flat screen TV with satellite and Pay-Per-View movies, Wi-Fi, hairdryer, iron/ironing board, authentic Art Deco mirror and original built-in storage/closets. The bathroom, with its original fixtures, is much roomier than a standard cruise ship. After dinner, it was time to explore the ship. It's a great time to do some window shopping and get some great pictures without the crowds of tourists. As night fell, the fog started to roll in, providing that eerie, haunting feeling that many come to experience at the Queen Mary. From the sun deck, you can see the Rainbow Bridge in the harbor lit up as well as the Long Beach skyline. A foggy morning loomed over Long Beach, CA, as the sun tried its best to break through the marine layer. In order to get our day started, coffee was definitely needed to awaken our weary eyes. Midship Marketplace is located on the port side of the Promenade Deck. They served Starbucks coffee products along with pastries, bagels, breakfast sandwiches, yogurt parfaits, oatmeal, and more. Decorative accents like colors, design themes, and use of the Greek key pattern on the counter and floor tile pay homage to the former Midships Bar and Lounge located in this very space. Iced Caramel Macchiato, Mocha Frappuccino, strawberry danish, and blueberry muffin were on the menu for our light breakfast. We sat at a table right outside on the Promenade Deck and watch as the fog continued to roll in on the port side. After breakfast, it was time to take a walk outside on the Sun Deck. The marine layer was starting to burn off and the Long Beach skyline began to appear along with the marina, Parker's Lighthouse, and the Long Beach Convention Center with its oceanic mural of the Pacific Ocean. Juvenile sea gulls were taking in the view as well from the handrails. It was time to head back to the room for a little rest before our ship tour. Commodore Everette Hoard led our ship tour of the Queen Mary. The construction of the Queen Mary started in December 1930 at John Brown Shipyard in Clydebank, Scotland. After a delayed construction, due to the Great Depression, the R.M.S. Queen Mary launched on her maiden voyage on May 27, 1936. She became the most popular Atlantic liner of the late 1930s from Southampton, England to New York with a stop in Cherbourg, France. The ship was stocked with 50,000 pounds of meat, 20,000 pounds of poultry, 17,000 pounds of fish, 9,000 pounds of bacon and ham, 2,000 pounds of sausage, 14,500 bottles of wine, 20,000 bottles of beer, 6,000 gallons of draught, 4,000 pounds of coffee and tea, 25,000 packages of cigarettes, 5,000 cigars, 21,000 tablecloths, 91,000 napkins, 16,000 pieces of cutlery, 200,000 pieces of crockery, and 100,000 pieces of china and glassware. So much more that I can't fit in this review! You'll have to check it out yourself. :)

I give it a four star only because of the history of this great ship and for my fathers honor. My dad was a merchant marine on this ship when I was born in 1958, I was born in Southampton England. My dad sailed on this ship with 3 of my uncles, also merchant marines, they would sail out to new york and back. Everyone says how the ship still has all the original stuff but when I took my dad there he was very emotional and also upset that they had changed and replaced so many things on this ship and my dad would know. He knew her like the back of his hand. My first tour if this ship was when I was about 4 or 5 years old and was given by my dad and the captain of the ship. The captain and my dad took tur s carrying me on their shoulders. I dont remember much from then but I do remember

The Web page said free WiFi and parking. Why did I have to pay $20.00 per day parking and $10.00 a day WiFi. The girl at the front desk was rude when I asked about this and basically said "that's what we charge" The bathroom was filthy and airconditioner barely worked. The entire inside of the ship was humid and muggy. Food was extremely over priced. If it wasn't for my mom and her family coming over in 1939 on the Queen Mary I would have checked out when I checked in
