I recently revisited the Fairmont Hotel in Newport Beach, CA. The property has outstanding service, great food and continues to be an excellent value considering its location and brand. It's close to the beautiful beaches and sites of Newport Beach and a stone's throw from John Wayne Airport in Orange County. I highly recommend it! When you stay in Newport... More

I was pleasantly surprised with my recent stay at the Fairmont Hotel. Although the location was not at the beach but rather 3 min to John Wayne airport it was still lovely. The room was nice and the bed luxurious. Great linens and pillows for a terrific rest. The staff of this hotel is amazing. Kathleen in the bamboo lounge... More

The hotel is modern and comfortable. Rooms are big and clean, with comfy beds. Breakfast buffet is good and also the restaurant service is good, although a bit pricey. In the hall there is a little shop that proved to be quite useful during my stay. Since I was on a business meeting, we rented one meeting room that was... More

Had a very relaxing couple of days at this great hotel. Great pool to relax and catch the sun. Jerry at the concierge was extremely helpful and friendly when we were trying to make plans. Aaron one of the head valets made me feel extremely welcome every time I pulled up to the hotel.

I went with my best friend for a relaxing spa weekend. The staff were great and the hotel was very nice. I wish that there had been a balcony, If this had been closer to the beach and further away from the airport, it would have been perfect.

This hotel is lovely - beautiful lobby, incredible delicious & healthy food choices, fabulous pool & fitness area. The staff is remarkably good from front desk to wait staff to valet! The only downside to this hotel is its location - it's not at the beach, by the Back Bay or within walking distance unless you're willing to go for... More

I was expecting this hotel to be super swanky... and it was, in the public spaces. But the room was missing an iron and a bath mat, didn't have enough towels, and that kind of secret slackness that tells you they make all of their money from hosting events in the public spaces. That said, it has a great pool.... More

Thank you for sharing your recent experience at the hotel. It sounds while you enjoyed your stay overall, you were slightly disappointed in some of our offerings. I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed our public spaces and found them to your liking, but sorry about the lack of amenities in your room. There is certainly no excuse for that oversight... More

I booked a suite at this hotel with my teenaged daughter.. When we arrived, the room looked tired. Scuffs on the walls, a crack in the sink. I went to open the closet and the door handle fell off. I called housekeeping to request that the sofa bed be prepared, after two hours no one had arrived. I called a... More
