The Dolly Varden Hotel has a rich and eccentric history, which makes it a true Long Beach Landmark. Originally built in 1929, the 35-room Dolly Varden Hotel has been a prominent visual feature of downtown Long Beach for 60 years. The New Varden Hotel is Long Beachs first European Style Boutique Hotel, which blends style and affordability. This urban jewel, located in the heart of downtown Long Beach California, at 335 Pacific Avenue, has been known as the Dolly Varden Hotel since the 1920s. After an extraordinary and extensive renovation, you will find yourself surrounded by history and contemporary style. The Varden is a-typical of the branded cookie-cutter- hotels found throughout the country. Your stay at the Varden will be an architectural and design experience. As you enter the sleek 35-room hotel, you will be surprised to find the original front desk from 1929, historic windows, railings and archways all blending seamlessly with white leather furniture, a diamond shaped gray pewter and white limestone lobby floor, and technology abound. As you enter the Historic-Chic Varden Hotel of today, you will experience a European style boutique hotel full of history and contemporary design.
