Alamitos Beach, between Orange avenue and Cherry  (2 Answers)

Is it safe to live in Alamitos between Orange avenue and Cherry street, south of Broadway? I am trying to find a place to live and I was just wondering if this area is safe to live in. I have heard conflicting information on the area and would like to know from someone who lives in Long Beach and knows the area. Thank you!

Where to stay?  (13 Answers)

We will be cruising out of Long Beach in September 2016. We are arriving on Thursday after lunch and will not sail until Saturday, so will have a full day to explore the City. I am torn between staying in the Hollywood area or in Long Beach. I would like to explore both somewhat.

As of now, I have our full day planned with viewing the Hollywood Sign, Hollywood Walk of Fame and walking the Hollywood area, then on to Beverly Hills and Sunset Blvd.

Would like any ideas about places to stay, transportation and must see sights with our limited time. This is our first time in California.

Hyatt Regency Long Beach to LAX  (6 Answers)

My husband and I will be staying at the Hyatt Regency Long Beach for one night and have a 5pm flight from LAX on a Wednesday. What time should we book the taxi for in order to allow for traffic etc to ensure that we arrive at the airport in good time. We're thinking of booking Rapid Shuttle, but would it be easier just to order a taxi from the hotel. Thanks in advance.

Driving into Long Beach  (5 Answers)

Hi We are doing the drive from San Fran to Vegasin Late July. My question is I realy want to stay on the Queen Mary but on close inspection of the map dont like what I see with the roads in LA. We are coming in from Santa Barbara hoping to call in on Santa Monica and Malibu (might even stay one night if people recomend) BUT what is the driving like for a Brit not used to the traffic, is it easy (ish) to get to the Mary at Long Beach. Dont want to have a panic attack!! It looks like an easyish 405 but when blow up the map theres a lot of spaghetti like roads. Advice please, Thank you

Queen Mary  (7 Answers)

Hi everyone
We are staying for two or three days on the Queen Mary as a speciel treat. We will have a rental car but would like to know can you get into Hollywood area and Warner Brothers studio from there by public transport...easily that is not lots of changes. Dont realy want to take the car into LA itself. Would also like to visit Disney World but think that may be a car day.
Is it a nice area to stay anyway, we will have just driven along the highway from sanfram.
Thankyou

Have I Made a Mistake?  (16 Answers)

I have booked to come to the USA for the first time, visiting San Fransisco, Las Vegas and Long Beach. We are staying in the Westin towards the end of September.

I booked Long Beach, because I am not really interested in Hollywood and I wanted a chilled out end to our trip. (Nicebeach, restaurants and maybe a couple of excursions)

Reading a little more about Long Beach now, I worry I have boooked to come to somewhere that is quite unsafe and I will have to constantly worry about our safety.

Although it may be expensive to do so, should I change and book Redondo instead?

Thanks
Mgwidow

Need Hotel Stay Near Catalina Ferry Port  (2 Answers)

I've been studying the possibility of staying at the Queen Mary, but since we have our dog with us, the extra75- fee seems a bit much for place that seems like a run-down tourist trap. But, then the pet friendly Motel 6 seems to offer nothing in terms of experience, even for one night stay.

All we want is a decent one night experience in the hours before getting on the ferry to Catalina Island. So, it seems that we could do better to stay somewhere else within the LA basin, within reasonable distance of the Catalina Port. We will drive from Northern California, so getting to the last ferry departing on Sunday--5:45PM--also seems difficult.

So, does anyone have a unique, and not overly expensive LA hotel recommendation, a place where we can get out on the street to walk the dog without getting run over, and get non-corporate style food to eat? I know, this seems like I'm asking too much from LA, or am I?

Best Westerns in Long Beach  (3 Answers)

Hi there. We plan to use some points for a one-night stay at one of the Best Westerns in Long Beach this October. Can anyone recommend which Best Western is the best (property, location etc.) -
- Best Western at the Convention Centre
- Best Western of Long Beach
- Best Western Golden Sails

Also, some friends want to book a room (up to110 roughly) in a good location at the same time (October) - not necessarily at a Best Western if they can find something better. Any advice on a great hotel in that price range would be great.

Thanks,
Karin
