I just spent one night at this property. Long Beach is part of LA County but actually feels more like Orange County.

I had a good stay there but the location is too remote for me so I wouldn't come back again unless I'd have business in the immediate vicinity.

Pros:

– immaculate, renovated rooms & suites, I really liked my executive room

– friendly staff, all interaction with the staff was on par and staff seemed knowledgeable

– good rates ($100) for a weekday in L.A. in rather busy fall season

Cons:

– sloooow Wifi, I hate hotels with slow Wifi and this hotel throttled it at 0.6 Mbit which is slower than your 3G cell phone connection, why are we Platinum when Wifi is unusable?

– Long Beach is not really close to anything in LA

– really mediocre breakfast even for US standards, with just coffee and pastries as Platinum amenity

– there is no lounge for Platinums

– overall almost no Platinum recognition
