Concierge was great. Bikes were awesome. Most stuff was normal except key didn't work upon check in so had to go back down to get new keys. Internet program under pres club was confusing. Forced valet and then they didn't have the car registered so it took some sorting out to get our car. Most annoying thing was that we... More

Good Location, the room was clean and roomy, the service at the pool is the best and the food was good at the pool side, Everyone at the hotel was helpful and the express checked was easy and the car was ready for us.

Not up to the usual Fairmont standards- poor service, grubby rooms & hallways, and not good housekeeping service at all. Valet service was the bright spot of this stay- excellent service fro the valet crew.

This is really an excellent Hotel. We had a beautiful junior suite on the top flour, with a nice view. The only Thing I really criticize is that they don´t offer shower facilities close to the swimming pool. The breakfast buffet is very rich and offers good food.

Stayed here recently for a wedding. The grounds / common areas are very nice, the wedding and catering piece were fantastic. Pool was nice with a decent poolside menu.

Stayed at the Fairmont for my husband's birthday. I was a little worried that it was across from the airport, which I didn't know before I booked it. No worries once we checked in though! Beautiful hotel, very comfortable room and bed. The room was also very quiet, not airport noise at all. The staff recommened a restaurant and made... More

I was flown out for work training July 6-11 and after reading some reviews this hotel was very average. The main lobby is very nice but the rooms don't feel as nice the carpet and furniture is old. The restaurant is so expensive unless you eat at the lounge which is still pricey. Luckily, the company paid for us to... More

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.
