Excellent Condo in Long Beach
My partner and I chose this condo because it was very close to the convention centre, at which I attended a conference, and it also seemed like a good place to stage a little sightseeing holiday. The condo itself was excellent - the facilities were superb and the owner included many high quality extras that one does not normally expect to find in a holiday rental (great shampoo, for example). The kitchen was fantastic, although we didn't use it much as there were many good places to eat within walking distance. Also worth noting is the bed - I don't think I've ever slept in such a comfortable one before. Everything was clean when we arrived and the owner gave us a little tour of the place, which was a nice touch. The building itself feels very safe and secure, with a security desk in the lobby and fobs required to enter any of the entrances and to use the lift. There are also other amenities in the building, such as a business centre (where there is a computer and printer that all residents can use), a swimming pool (although this wasn't available during our stay; perhaps it is seasonal), and a gym. There are a few sights to see in Long Beach, such as the Queen Mary, The Pike, and the aquarium, amongst others, but it is also quite easy to get to LA by using the nearby Metro Blue Line. If you don't have a car, like us, then it is simple enough to purchase a TAP card, which can be used to ride the Long Beach buses and most Metro lines in and around LA. Overall, we had an excellent time in Long Beach and LA, with the condo being one of the highlights. I wouldn't hesitate to rent the apartment again and wholeheartedly recommend it to other conference attendees or holiday-makers.
