When I was there the hotel was undergoing major renovations: restaurants, gym, etc. So they gave a pass to the gym next door, and there are many restaurants at the near-by shopping center. So, overall, a decent stay. I recommend checking out the shopping center for meals and shopping.

A beautiful hotel with great service. The room was large with a huge bathroom. The new bar area was renovated but still roped off so it was a bit odd. Beautiful couches and sitting areas but they were all behind velvet ropes! Pool was closed one afternoon. Its funny ... the more luxurious the hotel the more that is not... More

With the renovation just having been completed, everything with our 4-night stay went well. We got a high room with a very nice view overlooking the pool and with the ocean in the distance. Service was very helpful in all cases, from the front desk, to the concierge to parking which was always very efficient. Hotel restaurant was good and... More

This is my 5th stay in this hotel. Although I like this hotel very much,I didn't have the full enjoyment because of the ongoing renovation of the resturant area . I'm impressed with the fitness center new machines. The staff remains as friendly as you remember them. Still the checkout is to be improved and more accurate receipts to be... More

My family and I stayed here over the weekend after winning a bid on Travelocity. We are locals, but wanted a place to stay to enjoy the beach and do some shopping. This hotel is very nice, but pricy. Great service, valley parking, luggage brought to your room etc. but that means tips, tips, tips. The pool was very nice,... More

When making a one night reservation, they tried numerous times on the phone and online to upsell us to the Island Club. While it was only $35.00 extra we said no until after the third or fourth time we went for it thinking free drinks and food for pre dinner and breakfast. What they didn't tell us is that the... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your valuable and candid feedback with us. I was disappointed to learn that your last visit did not exceed nor even meet your expectations. It is clear that we did not communicate correctly. I have followed up with the individual departments to ensure this does not occur again. As of the end... More

This is my second review of the Island Hotel and just as the first time they were wonderful. Completely lived up to their expectations and enjoyed every second we were there. Even though they are doing construction, we loved the new Island Club and the pool opened up on Saturday just in time for us to enjoy! The staff was... More

Used to be a "destination"... Lovely hotel, wonderful location, excellent service, fabulous entertainment. However, since Jimmy Hopper left the Palm Terrace Lounge off the lobby and headed back to Las Vegas, it's a hotel undergoing renovation, good service, close to Fashion Island shopping, zero entertainment. It's no longer a "destination" hotel, but a hopeful location pending renovations.

Looked at the Marriotts and the Island Hotel. Decided against Marriotts because thought there were too many "dated" comments. Was happy with the choice of the Island Hotel. Rooms are large, bright and clean. Walk to Fashion Island and walk a little farther to some nice restaurants like Fig and Olive or Red O both of which apparently have major... More

Five stars except for at arrival on the motorbike. Before the helmets are off, we're asked to move into the parking structure next door since where we stopped is an 'unmarked' fire lane. Hmmm? Being in the biz, I can tell you there is no such thing as an unmarked fire lane. It was simply a means to free up... More
