They Don't Build Hotels Like This Anymore

Built in 1926, the Breakers was a symbol of prosperity, exemplifying the lavish and luxurious lifestyle that characterized the Long Beach waterfront in the jazz age of the roaring twenties. Once the most sought-after destination for celebrities and dignitaries, the hotel hosted the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Cary Grant, Rita Hayworth, Clark Gable, and countless other famous guests.  It was the place to be … and be seen.

It has since stood witness as Long Beach evolved into the international city we know today. Now, the Fairmont Breakers is being lovingly restored to serve as an emblematic symbol of a glorious past – ready to meet the demands of an exciting future and ensure its legacy for generations to come.
