Service was not up to the Fairmont standards. Very disappointed. Room was nice and clean. Bed was comfortable. The pool and spa was not very appealing. The bar seemed very nice. The spa and gym appeared to be very nice. Again, front desk was terrible and turn down service was not very good.

We booked our 7-night stay through priceline and got a fabulous deal ($110/night + taxes) to stay at this very nice hotel. It is unfortunate that you cannot get the same deals by going direct (they don't price match). The service we received was generally of a high quality and friendly except for a couple of adequate but a touch... More

If you enjoy a nice and relaxing time away from home, the Fairmont Newport Beach is perfect! It is quiet and the staff are pleasant and accommodating. They arrange activities for children on Easter and are pet-friendly!

If you have the opportunity to stay at the Fairmont, do yourself a favor and do. It's a quiet luxury hotel geared towards family and professionals wanting a quiet place to stay. If you're looking for a beach location, parties, in-room bachelor/bachelorette parties you might want to look elsewhere. Thank you for yet another great experience Fairmont hotels!

The hotel itself is nice, however, the rooms are in serious need of maintenance and renovation. While the property is beautiful, the room had an iron burn on the floor (in the shape of an iron), was unclean, bed was seriously over worn, and though not a major issue, lacked a clear way to recycle paper goods.

The other reviews of this hotel all complain that the customer service was bad, and I have to say I am totally mystified by this complaint!! Maybe the hotel had improved by the time I stayed (19/04/2014 - 20/04/2014), but if so, it has improved A LOT. My partner and I were assigned this hotel through Hotwire and were initially... More

Thank your very kind (and detailed) words about the hotel. It sounds like you and your partner had a wonderful stay with us and definitely plan on returning. Memorable service can separate a good stay from a great one and it's great yours was so excellent. As you noted we are centrally located in Orange County and in close proximity... More

The hotel has a shuttle to Newport beach if you don't want to drive. They have bikes free for Club members. The breakfast is excellent with fresh fruits and I think it is better than Marriot at Costa Mesa. The beds are firm and comfortable. We spent the evening playing with the kids in the swimming pool and around the... More

spiders are there in the room, and coffee maker is not working. Water is kind of smell I am sure that is in my room or all. They collected internet fee from my conference booking, still they collected additional fee for internet. I have no idea why I am charged twice.
