Why Choose Our Destination?

Long Beach, California…part beach town, part big city, located between Los Angeles and Orange County, Long Beach offers the perfect combination of downtown sophistication, with the beach vibe that has made Southern California famous. Over the past decade, Long Beach has invested over $1 Billion into its Downtown Waterfront, transforming it into one of the most dynamic seaside destinations in the country. Long Beach has 5,000 hotel rooms citywide, with more than 2,000 rooms within an easy walk to the convention center. Many downtown hotels offer panoramic ocean views and there are accommodation choices for every preference and pocketbook; ranging from a historic ocean liner, singular boutiques, first class business hotels and quality economy properties to family oriented and long-term-stay properties. From the regal Queen Mary and spectacular Aquarium of the Pacific to stirring Broadway shows, live music venues and over 125 restaurants within an 8 block radius of the Convention Center, Long Beach is the perfect destination. Getting to Long Beach has never been easier with service from three major airports. LAX and Orange County Airports are less than 30 minutes away; the Long Beach Airport, the Southland’s “easy in-easy out” airport, is just seven minutes from downtown. Long Beach Airport offers a lounge-inspired, resort-style atmosphere, brand new terminals and a host of local eateries and refreshments to welcome 41 inbound flights from around the country each day. In addition, to our enhanced city, Long Beach has fast become an innovative leader in creating “a new essence of meeting style” with its $45 million Convention Center renovation to create an open, comfortable environment where people can easily connect and collaborate. Additionally, the new Pacific Ballroom at the Long Beach Arena is one of the country’s premier ballroom venues, revolutionizing the platform design for event spaces. The ballroom’s 46,000 square feet of customizable event space is complete with a floating tension grid and moveable, floor-to-ceiling curtain walls to create the right environment for your group. The adaptable, electronic walls will be able to accommodate groups of all types, ranging from an intimate gathering to a grandly lavish 5,500 person reception.
