We were married here in 2006 out in the Gazebo Garden, I have friends and family who still say after 8 years that was one of the nicest, classiest weddings they have been to. We have loved the Fairmont since that day in November and became part of their President's Club Members. We honeymooned at the Orchid on Kona, we... More

The location was noisy given it was next to the airport but convieniantly located for in and out business trip. Very friendly personel but the rooms were pretty average. I stayed in a suite and the room had previous water damage on the ceiling and as oppose to repairing and painting the ceiling they had elected to just patch it... More

Recently stayed at Fairmont Newport Beach for business. The smell of smoke resonating in the (non-smoking room) I was assigned was unbearable. Worst night sleep or lack of sleep for that matter I can remember. I told the staff upon my exit and they said "don't worry we will make sure to note that you did not smoke in the... More

Everything is fine but not fantastic. This is not a resort hotel. Prices in the restaurant are usual for a Fairmont - high - but there is not really anything "great" about the rooms or public areas. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Underwhelmed by the facilities. Wifi is restricted unless you pay a premium price.

Hotel is just fine if you're staying one or two nights for business. It's on a main road with every franchise restaurant you can imagine and local shopping. It's about 5 miles to the closest beach, if you're a runner and are thinking you can run on the beach - it's accessible.The fitness center is pretty standard, smallish but has... More

This is more of a review for the website that took our reservation. When we arrived, there was no reservation made. The hotel was over booked. The website agent kept saying she could give me a refund. I did not need a refund, I needed the room that I booked. The agent was no help. Finally the hotel front desk... More

Stayed for three nights on business. Hotel lived up to expectations. Bed was excellent. Room amenities were high quality. Very good WiFi. One recommendation is to join their hotel loyalty club to get the basic WiFi for free. Restaurant and bar were pleasant and good quality. Staff was friendly. Decent work-out facility, but pool is small and not adequate for... More

This hotel is very convenient to John Wayne Airport and the valet service is top notch there !! The rooms are very nicely appointed and the staff was overall very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant pricing was on the high side across all items... but what do you expect, it's the O.C. baby !!! Some level of disappointment in dinner... More

We love going to the The Spa Sante at the Fairmont Hotel in Newport Beach, Calif. Tucked within the third floor of the hotel and next to the heated pool, whirlpool, cabanas and sundeck, the Spa features comfortable reception areas with complimentary fruit, infused water, coffee and tea.
