Bedroom suites open to private terraces and include deluxe en suite baths with outdoor showers.
The Breakers Returns To Long Beach
The Breakers is a timeless feature of the Long Beach, California, skyline. Built in 1926, it was a symbol of prosperity, exemplifying the lavish and luxurious lifestyle that characterized the Long Beach waterfront during the Jazz Age of the Roaring Twenties. The hotel will consist of over 175 rooms and suites with over 12,000 square feet of meeting rooms and indoor/outdoor event spaces. Fine dining, an open-air rooftop, and a live jazz club will make this property a coastal hotspot. The Breakers is being fully restored and is scheduled to reopen in 2020.
