Located at 2640 N Lakewood Boulevard in Long Beach, the project site currently includes a thirteen-story Holiday Inn with 172 hotel rooms built in 1967, a two-story hotel with 50 hotel rooms built in 1978, conference space of 10,648 square-feet built in 1978, surface parking, and ancillary buildings for laundry facility, offices, and employee locker rooms. The planned hotel would replace the two-story hotel and the outdoor swimming pool with a six-story (73 feet tall) Staybridge Suites hotel consisting of a total of 125 hotel rooms. Additionally, the new project will bring new amenities for the new hotel including 2,498 square-feet for conference space, a fitness center. A new outdoor swimming pool will also be constructed which will be shared among the two hotels.

At the very top of the site, there exists surface parking which will be replaced by a two-level vehicle parking structure. The table below shows the breakdown regarding parking requirements:
