Discover Long Beach

Long Beach is a hidden waterfront gem of Los Angeles County – the birthplace to Snoop Dogg and Sublime, the city has its own distinct culture. With a thriving restaurant scene, a diverse collection of beaches, art museums and historic sites, Long Beach has an abundance to offer. Cycle down the city’s expansive shoreline, enjoy a comedy show or a musical at the Terrace Theater, dine at a Michelin-guide recognized restaurant, cruise through the serene Naples canals and explore the vibrant architecture and art of the city of Long Beach. 

More specifically, Hotel Mai is located in downtown Long Beach, the heart of the city. Downtown boasts several neighborhoods (all within walking distance to the hotel):

East Village Arts District.

This neighborhood appeals to the artist in all of us with its eclectic mix of shops, galleries, and restaurants, many located in restored historic buildings. If some of these streets seem strangely familiar, it is because this area is often used as a filming location. Parts of “This is Us,” “Jane the Virgin,” “La La Land” and other movies have been filmed here!
