I was in Long Beach for a meeting at the Convention Center. For the second time in 3 years I choose to stay at the Varden and I was not disappointed.
The Varden is small, comfortable and located about a 10 minute walk inland from the convention center. The bulk of that walk is along Pine Street which is the location of many nice restaurants. The rooms are compact but everything has it's place. As one person I was more then comfortable. There is complementary high speed internet that works quite well. The mattress was excellent and I slept very well.
The management and staff are what sets the Varden far apart. All staff greeted me by name within a day. There is a breakfast included of yogurts, donuts/muffins coffee and orange juice as well as well wine in the late afternoon. Bottled water and coffee are always available. Everyone is ready to help you with food choices or anything else.
In conclusion, if you are looking for a large suite, fully loaded room and being lost in the crowd, the Varden is not for you. But if friendly, helpful staff, a great vibe, and clean comfortable basic room works for you then the Varden works for you.
