Long Beach Residence Inn was developed on a dramatic site overlooking Queensway Bay in Long Beach Harbor. The hotel site plan set both indoor and outdoor public spaces close to the waterfront, providing dramatic views of the Long Beach city skyline, Queensway Bay, and the Queen Mary cruise ship. Significant landscape features include a lap pool, an outdoor barbeque, and an outdoor kitchen. R/Hdo’s work included design of all the outdoor areas including the swimming pool, and landscape and irrigation design for the building perimeter, parking lot, and surrounding streetscapes.
