4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Booked this hotel, unknowing, through Priceline. It was listed as a 4 star hotel. Like other reviewers have said, although the hotel is in Newport Beach, it is no where near the beach. Its actually right down the road from John Wayne Airport (although the sound of airplanes/helicopters was very mute). I was disappointed on arrival to find out I... More

We spent 3 nights at this hotel because we found a good offer on trivago.com. Location: the hotel is close to the John Wayne airport. Walking distance from the hotel there's a Jamba Juice,some restaurants and a staples. Nothing more. This means you must have a car if you want to explore the area. only valet parking is available and... More

No need to worry that it is a pricline booking - you are treated like gold, like the best client they ever could expect. From valet parking to front desk check in to room selection to restaurant and at checkout - you are no different than a full price guest. We were given an excellent room on the 8th floor,... More

This Hotel is nice and clean. The staff was friendly and very helpful. They responded fast to our requests and were able to point us to some good restaurants in the area. The only downside is they charge $30 a day for parking. So while we received a good deal on the stay parking made up for it. The hotel... More

My family and I stayed here for 6 nights over spring break. We have 2 teenage sons so the attractive price made our decision for us (we could get 2 rooms for the price of one at a better hotel). This is clearly a business hotel. It is conveniently located VERY close to the airport in what seems to be... More

4+ Stars, great staff, nice accommodations, clean, nice gym and pool. Would definitely recommend. Had a bad experience with breakfast (cold meats made me sick) - just use your best judgment when eating. They were nice, brought pepto bismol to room.

I recently spent about a week at the Fairmont Newport Beach, I was attending a conference hosted there so I came out the weekend before with my wife to relax and explore Orange County. The hotel is very close to the airport, which is convenient, but that also means it's not real close to the beach. We had a rental... More

Above standard hotel. Not as prestigious as the Fairmont was known for, but I would choose to stay here again when I am in town for business. I was upgraded to a jr suite which I was extremely, grateful. The corner gave me extra room, the bathroom was spacious with a toilet room, shower s parade than the tub and... More

Business hotel not Resort Hotel. Not very close to what you would want to visit in Newport Beach. Extremely average acomodations which are fine with an average price. Rooms are not insulated well and you could clearly hear everyone else around you. Not very relaxing in the morning

Noticed how friendly the staff were immediately. Large comfy room, nice view and excellent room service breakfast ! Recommend the almond croissant and chilaquiles! Big fluffy robes and the sweet rose scented toiletries are a nice touch .
