In Long Beach, the Renaissance Hotel is probably your best Marriott choice as it has a pool and a club lounge, but consider the Newport Beach Marriott as an alternative and excellent choice in the area.

1. Renaissance Long Beach Hotel
Immerse yourself in the lifestyle of Southern California at Renaissance Long Beach Hotel, which is a Rewards Category 5 Marriott Bonvoy hotel. Explore downtown attractions, including the Long Beach Convention Center and the Aquarium of the Pacific, just minutes from your room.
The hotel has a dark but stylish interior and fun glass-sided lifts. From the lift, you look down at the sunbathing deck with blue parasols, a fairly generic rectangular pool, and a little round pool, both framed by palm trees. While this sounds rather idyllic, the pool area is next door to a big busy road, so do not expect a resort atmosphere. This is very much a city hotel.
There’s a popular lobby restaurant, SIP, and you can enjoy cocktails prepared by their mixologists and sample mouthwatering ocean-to-fork dining. Unwind with a workout or a swim, followed by drinks on their third-floor deck offering views of the Pacific Ocean and the legendary Queen Mary.
Rooms have plush bedding and Wi-Fi and are excellent, clean, and quiet. If you face in one direction, you can actually see the dock and the boats from the window in your nice but cookie-cutter room.
The club lounge is the best in Long beach. It is located on the 11th floor with great views, and rooms on the 11th and 12th floors have access. Within the lounge, you will have Snacks (like banana chips and pretzels) and non-alcoholic drinks, including bottled water, Pepsi, Diet-Pepsi, 7-UP, coffee, tea, etc.
There’s a breakfast buffet with fruit juices and a full hot and cold breakfast buffet, including hot egg and bacon dishes. In the evening, there are appetizers and a buffet, plus beer and wine.
2. Westin Long Beach

Satisfy your palate with California Coastal cuisine and craft cocktails at Navy Proof Food & Spirits. While this and the Renaissance are the most expensive and luxurious Marriotts in Long Beach (as they are a higher rewards category and usually more expensive on points, too), The Westin doesn’t have an executive club lounge while the Renaissance does.
