We stay here for a conference and what an amazing weekend. From the staff, to the location, the rooms, the bar. Everything was top notch. The workout room was also great. We really enjoyed our time here.

I am primarily a boutique hotel person, but one of the brands I've grown to trust is Fairmont.Hotels. However, in the case of the Newport Beach hotel, that trust was misplaced. The hotel itself is nice, the room was good, same great amenities normally found in Fairmont hotels, but it was the not the luxurious Fairmont to which I've grown... More

I was rather worried about the bad reviews here - I only went here because a client was paying and more or less insisted on to hotel. I was pleasantly surprised, and I am a rather particular traveler who likes boutique hotels and ultra luxe brands like four seasons and mandarin oriental I was pleasantly surprised at the healthy menu...

I had an unpleasant experience on my first day but the hotel's Director of Operation, Mr Maxene took a great effort to make it up for my client and myself. He has turned an unpleasant experience to an unforgettable positive experience. Well done and thank you, Mr Max. I look forward to return to Fairmont Newport Beach !!

Centrally located with easy access to the airport, business center and not far from the beach. Ideal for conferences requiring flexible meeting and social spaces. Top notch and creative food & beverage with excellent audio/visual capabilities.

We arrived with a five pieces of luggage and about 15 grocery bags on way to a holiday home. Not an easy task! The valet and bell boy service took care of that quickly and with a smile and spring in their step. Some of the best service we have ever had. Superb. The room rate was about 260 dollars... More

Not quite up to par with other Fairmont properties I've stayed at. Thin walls meant I could hear my neighbors, even over the loud, old AC unit. Room felt musty the entire time I was there, and the closet and dresser doors had expanded over time so that they were hard to close. In a sea of 3-4 star options... More

Looking for a place to host your event in Newport - I highly recommend The Fairmont. They are extremely helpful and professional. Anything we needed just asked for it and they were on it. Beautiful place to have your guests/attendees stay as well and it is ideal if you need to be by the airport.
