The service and the attention to detail here keeps us coming back. The rooms are clean and spacious and friendly staff make this hotel a very enjoyable stay. They also allow pets which is very important to us.

The staff is friendly and the hotel is well maintained. I have stayed at this hotel a dozen or so times and never had a bad experience. The food is a little expensive, but you will not be disappointed with the quality or service at any meal you choose to have in the hotel. If you choose room service -... More

Having experienced dozens of Fairmont properties around the world, this one was disappointing. It lacks the great iconic character that I have come to expect of a Fairmont property. Despite this fact, the hotel is nice enough, the staff friendly, the rooms and bathrooms well appointed, but a little tired and in need of a refresh. At check-in, I was... More

Recently spent the weekend at the Fairmont in Newport Beach. The property itself is very nice, with a welcoming entrance and upscale feel. The bed was especially comfortable, and possibly the most comfortable hotel bed I have slept in. The hotel is very close to the airport and airport traffic is moderate within the room. My room was on the... More

The Fairmont is a very good business hotel, located just minutes from John Wayne airport and the 405 highway. Being so close to the airport is also problematic if you plan to spend the day at the hotel (depending on the room location). The gym is small and not well air-conditioned. The valet parking (extra $$$) service is good, but... More

I really like this hotel. It's nicely set up with somewhat of a fancy feel. Decent room prices, friendly staff. We were here for a big fund-raiser. The event was beautiful, and the rooms were very comfortable. Only down side is the wire-less internet connection is super expensive. Bring your own hot spot if you have one.

Nice hotel, central location in Newport Beach. Very clean and classy decor. Pool area is really nice with plenty of very comfortable lounge chairs. My wife and I really enjoyed the fire pit at night! Rooms are spacious, clean, and decor is nice.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights for a conference. The hotel was quite nice. I found the food overpriced so I only ate there twice. They do have mini fridges in the rooms, so you can store some of your own snacks. This was really nice, and i also enjoyed having a Keurig in the room. The room... More

This was our 10th event at the Fairmont. Our event planner Donna is the best! The food is delicious, and our events are effortless. After the event I fall into the most comfy bed ever! Fabulous experience!!
