Now through the end of the year, a resort in Long Beach is offering a “Carnival Park and Cruise” package. A one night stay and seven days of parking at the property is available for just $179 plus tax. Cruise ship guests looking to stay at Hotel Maya before or after their cruise can book the special package rate at hilton.com.
Hotel Maya is located adjacent to the Long Beach Cruise Ship Terminal that is now used exclusively by Carnival Cruise Line. The Long Beach facility is unlike any other terminal in the world. Its geodesic dome, originally built to house Howard Hughes’ Spruce Goose seaplane, soars to 13 stories at its highest point and served as the location for many famous Hollywood movies.
With its multimillion-dollar expansion in early 2018, Carnival Cruise Line took over the entire dome for its terminal operations, doubling the space for passengers.
The terminal’s striking design features California’s recognizable landmarks, bringing indoors the state’s iconic natural elements, including a backdrop of the majestic Sierra Nevada mountain range. In a nod to the dome’s former tenant, a replica of the Spruce Goose hangs from above, as well as the original model of the plane used in the 2004 movie, “The Aviator.” The dome also includes the cruise industry’s first 1980s-style arcade, which is available for families to enjoy.
Hotel Maya – a Doubletree by Hilton is a full-scale resort featuring a Latin American-inspired 199 room property with a distinctive Southern California combination of spectacular, oceanfront views amidst 14 acres of lush, tropical gardens dotted with 500 palm trees in a modern, open-air setting.
Guests can relax at the largest man-made beach in Long Beach, “Playa at the Maya.” The 6,500-square-feet resort-style, urban beach features 285 tons of real sand, two 4-feet diameter fire pits, colorful umbrellas, comfortable chaise lounges and cozy day bed.
Hotel Maya offers bicycle rentals, swimming, sailing, jet skiing, kayaking, water biking, Paddle-boarding and a walking path to the Queen Mary and Downtown. Escape to the seaside pool for laps or lounging with a nearby whirlpool and floating cabanas, along with a full bar and relaxing fire pit.
And to fulfill that culinary call, there’s Fuego restaurant, the modern Latin infused dining and lounge experience in a unique indoor-outdoor setting. Famous for its handcrafted margaritas, Fuego also boasts one of the largest tequila selections in the region. Fuego restaurant is open daily from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Fuego lounge is open daily from 11 a.m. to midnight. Fuego’s stunning open-air views include the Pacific Ocean, Long Beach skyline and Queen Mary.
