Fusing Latin American flair with Southern California beach-resort style, Hotel Maya–A Doubletree by Hilton is a full-service boutique hotel located right on the Long Beach waterfront. Set on eleven acres facing a dramatic urban skyline, it’s a find for brides looking for value and four-star touches in a lush, tropical atmosphere.
Stepping into its colorful lobby, you know at once that this hotel is a place designed to celebrate life. Appealing to all five senses, its Mayan-inspired décor is vibrant and highly textural, with unexpected touches like the dumbwaiter in the foyer where sangria and tequila drinks are delivered. With nine fire elements, 420 towering palms, and lighting that enhances its warm ambiance, the distinctive property simmers with energy infused with a citrus scent washed by ocean breezes.
Rehearsal dinners and post-wedding brunches are held in the comfortable Luna or Solstice Rooms or in Fuego at the Maya, the hotel’s inspired restaurant with a breezy waterside deck. Specializing in authentic coastal Latin American cuisine, their chef will choreograph your meal using the finest ingredients in delectable combinations. However, if you’d prefer another type of food, he’s happy to customize your menu.
Two spectacular outdoor ceremony areas both offer water’s-edge views. With its luxuriant, tropical foliage and misted waterfall, the Jardin de Palmeras is an exotic setting overlooking a city that has experienced a recent renaissance. Larger groups are accommodated in the adjacent Esplanade, shaded by a striking Australian umbrella and offering a Zen-like vibe and views of Shoreline Village and the historic Queen Mary.
After you’ve posed for photos (that fabulous waterfront does make the perfect backdrop…), receive guests on the Miramar veranda, where they can sip champagne while admiring twinkling city lights and the dramatic bridge spanning the port. Host a sit-down meal in the elegant Miramar Ballroom—Long Beach’s only waterfront ballroom with an infinity deck—or, for larger groups, the spectacular Salon de Reyes.
Whatever type of affair you have here, Hotel Maya is a destination resort where your guests can enjoy themselves for days: There are lots of activities including sailing excursions, sand volleyball, bike rentals, tennis, and nearby attractions via the Long Beach “aqua-bus” or Passport Bus. After spending your first night as a married couple in your plush oceanview room, you two may choose to board a ship at the nearby Carnival Cruise Line terminal…or you may decide to extend your stay at the hotel in order to take advantage of the wide range of life’s pleasures this area has to offer.
