Perfect place to relax! Explored in the mornings, afternoon by the pool, nights by the firepit listening to guitar players. Excellent snacks and drinks and the staff was very attentive. I highly recommend ! It was a nice walk to Balboa island (Jamboree cross coast hwy and leads to main street) and Costa del mar( avocado left at coast hwy... More

I travel at least 3 times a month and a couple of weekends ago, I attended a meeting at this hotel. What a wonderful experience! From the arrival, to checking in, to meals, the warm hospitality that we were treated with was unparalleled! Food was wonderful, unique flavors combined with creative pairings of farm fresh vegetables and meets were fabulous!... More

We recently spent a weekend at this hotel and were absolutely thrilled with the quality of service as well as the beautiful aesthetic of the property’s newly renovated design. The rooms are light & refreshing and much larger than average hotel guest rooms. Although there is so much to do in the area by way of shopping and nightlife, It... More

I had to go to the area on business so my friend decided to come along and make a girls weekend out of it. We were in the car for 4 hours, so when we pulled up the valet immediately cleaned out all the trash from my car. At check in, they put us in a beautiful room which was... More

We booked this hotel because I was about to do the Huntington Beach half-Marathon and the location was perfect for this. It was nice: comfortable bed & pillow, great service, nice complete gym. Very quiet, close to restaurants and food shopping places.

Check in is a breeze. Staff are friendly and anxious to help. The spa is small for such a huge hotel island club is an extra but worth the money. The Oak room was wonderful. Service outstanding food was superb. Shopping a few steps from the hotel.

A business event recently took me to the Island Hotel. I'd stayed in the area before--specifically, at Marriott's Newport Coast Villas--so I know there are choices with a better view of the ocean and perhaps a better feeling of getting away from it all. However, you're not far from anything you'd want to do when you stay at the Island... More

Well, maybe it is not the Four Seasons that it used to be, but it's still a pretty luxurious experience. I was very happy with the large room on the tenth floor across from the elevator alcove. Our room had a big sliding door and little balcony that looked over the pool area, the immense Island shopping center, Balboa Bay,... More

Nice quiet luxurious hotel with everything you'd expect from a five star. Great staff is attentive to guest needs. Lovely pool and fire pit. Just across from the upscale shops of Fashion Island where there is also a Whole Foods. I walked to the ocean but it is a hike of about 2-1/2 miles. Actually I walked 16.86 miles in... More

We got a corner room suite for about $500 a nite for Valentines weekend. We had an ocean view room and it was just ok. I had higher expectations since I've stayed here when it was a Four Seasons Hotel. The room was drab and definitely needs a serious makeover. The furniture was outdated and the decor blah. The pool... More
