We have stayed in Newport many times, mainly at the Marriott Suites. For our 30th anniversary we decided to splurge and stay in a corner suite at the Island. It was well worth the extra cost (really not that much). The view from the 17th floor was spectacular and the suite was spacious, and while a little dated it was... More

I had no idea this was formerly a Four Seasons, so judging just by the name I thought we were going to a small, quaint little hotel. Boy, was I wrong! This property is very upscale, elegant and beautiful. Our room was large and elegantly appointed, with a beautiful view to the ocean. The bathtub was too small for my... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the beginning of January and had excellent service from start to finish. The children were welcomed with a baby dolphin soft toy, and on our first night the housekeeper left milk and cookies for them when she did turndown! Rooms are spacious and well equipped, with very comfortable beds. Staff were always quick to... More

Over the years I've stayed at this hotel numerous times for business and pleasure and have always had great experiences. The staff is always friendly, rooms are nicely furnished and of good size, and although not on the beach, the hotel is in a great area with relatively easy access to much of what Newport has to offer. I was... More

If you want a beautiful hotel to stay at in Newport Beach this is the place to go. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the rooms are amazing. Great pool and jacuzzi to hang out and relax away your worries. It's right across the street from fashion island, which is an outdoor mall, and there are tons of restaurants in... More

This hotel property has a quiet elegance that is just the thing for a relaxing stay. My suite was spacious and well appointed, with first rate furnishings, art, and amenities. The staff was attentive and courteous. Food was well prepared and presented. Overall, I really liked the hotel and would stay again.

I did quite a bit of research on various hotels in the Newport Beach, Laguna Beach & Huntington Beach area and I was very pleased to have chosen this hotel. You can walk everywhere... More

I've been staying here off and on for the past two years while on business in the Newport Beach/Irvine area. The first couple of times I stayed here the experience was fine but nothing memorable and ended up switching to the Marriott across the street for the next few trips. I wanted to give the Island Hotel another try and... More

I have stayed a couple of times on business trips. Always thought it was a decent hotel, perhaps about to break into the luxury kind of league. Last trip there was a bit sobering. The room I had was a bit worn, the floor (4th) too close to what appears to be buzzing night life at the pool bar, the... More
