I have stayed here many times over the years. The pieces have come down and so have the service levels. The Island has a great location across from Fashion Island and you are close enough to the beach to be a short 10 min drive. Linens are always clean and comfortable. One of the real downsides to this hotel is... More

I live in the area and I've been coming to this lovely hotel for breakfast for years. I've always wanted to stay here but never had the chance. The other day I needed some peace and quiet and I decided to check in here. My stay was perfect. The staff was awesome, very polite and helpful. I checked in at... More

We came back to The Island Hotel after a two year break. We were traveling with two others on business. The hotel did the correct thing and gave us all corner suites. Staff are incredibly attentive and service is great. Rooms have plenty of storage and bathrooms are very large with s separate dressing area. The hotel restaurant is great... More

Beautiful facility- room was large with an equally large bathroom. Super nice staff, convenient to Fashion Island. Had two Great meals at the hotel and across the street at Fashion Island. Would have liked to have time to enjoy the pool and hot tub area. A real treat once we got there!

I was looking for a nice hotel in Newport Beach, CA that would be close to the beach, restaurants and shopping and also be a fair property to stay at to celebrate dual Birthdays. With only online photos of the property as a reference, I booked it online. Well, to say that I was surprised and in an excellent way,... More

The Island Hotel is centrally located in Newport Beach, Ca. The facilities are in good shape and well maintained. Everyone, from reception, restaurants, room service, etc are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Mine did not have a mini bar. My experience was very good.

The hotel is beautiful and we had a well appointed room, not huge but very nice with a comfortable king sized bed. The service was great - very friendly people who want to help. The pool area was nice as well. The hotel is right next to shopping at Fashion Island and not far from the beach. The rating might... More

We booked the Island Hotel in Newport for a weekend without the kids. Good location, quiet, no resort fees (shocked) and good service all around. On Saturday night after 10:30 I really needed some food, went downstairs and was disappointed the small market was closed. Once they learned I was a guest it was opened right up and I was... More

I stayed at the Island Hotel recently for business for three nights. The hotel is located right next to a big outdoor mall with tons of quality shopping and good restaurants, and is within a 5-minute drive (30-minute walk) to a nice beach at Corona del Mar. I had a double queen room overlooking the pool area, and it was... More

Erin, I am delighted that you would stay at Island Hotel again when your travels bring you back to Newport Beach. Having recently relocated from NYC myself I appreciate the size of our rooms, and in particular the size of our bathrooms...inclusive of bathtubs in every room. Our Market Place (which we think is a little 'jewel box') allows guests... More
