The Queen Mary
1126 Queens Hwy.
Long Beach, CA 90802
(562) 435-3511

The Queen Mary may not be your typical bed & breakfast, but this legendary ship, moored in Long Beach, operates like one. Accommodations are compact and completely authentic Art Deco wonderlands offering the feeling of bygone days when all you had to worry about was getting up in time to eat. One note of the paranormal variety: The Queen Mary has seen her share of ghosts, in particular in Cabin B340, which, by design, is not available for booking.
