Just as on any cruise ship, the Queen Mary Hotel has a variety of inner, outer, upper, lower, standard and deluxe staterooms and suites available for hotel guests.

Inner and outer tourist staterooms are pretty cramped, as you would expect on a ship. First Class staterooms have more space. Mini-suites add a living room and Royalty Suites include a kitchenette.

Unlike most cruise ships, hotel guests do not have access to a swimming pool (the pool does not meet California regulations, so it can't be filled.), but there is a business center, high speed internet, satellite TV and the availability of fitness rooms.

For the paranormally inclined, you can also request a haunted room, although ghost sightings are not guaranteed.

Room rates range from $119 to $660 per night and vary by season and special event. Special event packages are available.

Guests of the hotel have free access to the Self-Guided Tour of the ship.

Guide Tip: During holiday events like Halloween Shipwrecked and the July 4th Celebration, I would only book a room on the Queen Mary if you're planning to spend all your time on the ship, otherwise you'll be frustrated by the time it takes to get in and out of the parking lot. You can use the free Passport bus into downtown Long Beach to avoid the worst, but even that gets stuck in traffic.
