I have stayed here many times and enjoyed it. The staff is wonderful but the rooms are in need of updating. This used to be a Four Seasons but lost its standing. However you should avoid it on Saturday night unless you don't mind wading through throngs of inebriated revelers so you can try to scream over the blasting rap... More

Mary, Thank you so much for recognizing our wonderful staff. I couldn't be more pleased with the team we have here at Island Hotel Newport Beach. Perhaps I can address a few of your concerns...the lobby is fully restored and we unveiled the Market Place this week. It's a wonderful new venue that was developed to provide affordably priced snacks... More

While I only stayed a couple of nights this time, I generally enjoyed it. Perhaps it was because the hotel was not busy. They have cut down on several of the small things, like nightly turndown service, breakfast menu that you can hang on your door, and the room service menu is very limited. Although you can call an order... More

We spent our 25th anniversary and they did not disappoint. My husband received an email from them asking about our stay. Told them it was our 25th. When we arrived they had bottled water and a dessert plate that said happy anniversary in chocolate. Room was roomy we had the corner suite and nice views Yes it's expensive and yes... More

When it comes to "Customer Service" this hotel should be the CS training facility for hotels around the world. They do not miss a trick when it comes to anything having to do with the hotel. The rooms are big, spotless, look new and the staff is unbelievably accommodating. It may not be right on the beach, but the service... More

High-end property but relatively reasonable rates, but in the heart of Newport things can get really stuffy. We checked in during 'club hours' and unlike other reviews we had no issue with noise outside of lobby. I actually enjoyed watching a bit of the club scene in the hotel. Rooms are large and views are great. Pool area is nice... More

Dear "Jasno," I'm glad that you enjoyed our large guest rooms! The hot tub is back to 'bubbling.' Hope that you'll come back again soon. We're not 'stuffy'...I promise! In fact, dare I say we are a lot of fun? Best wishes, Gerard More

Was here for a conference and was thoroughly impressed with the hotel! The service was outstanding, the views were peaceful and the staff were attentive to my every need- and some of the friendliest and helpful in the United States. Do yourself a favour and if you are in the area for business or pleasure stop in for a couple... More

Well, if you're going to spend some quality business time in SoCal, might as well shack up at a posh full-service hotel in Newport Beach. Interesting location hard by an upscale mall (no beach views), but close enough to the action. Pricey valet parking but a good team and pretty responsive at off times. Typical high end restaurant and hotel... More

I love boutique hotels. There is nothing wrong with chains, but this place is unique. I was there for a 3 day conference and found the food, wait staff and hospitality staff to be extremely welcoming and solicitous. The gym is small but clean and well stocked. The pool area is very comfortable and drink service is plentiful. There is... More

I stayed at Island Hotel for a business conference recently. They truly go out of their way to provide top notch service. I asked where to go to rent a car and they arrnaged for me to rent a brand new Audi A4 delivered right to the hotel. I was able to check in early and our 2 dinners at... More

We have to honestly say this hotel has never been the same since the former Four Seasons property was taken over by the Irvine Company. Our recent stay there has us wondering if we will ever return. First, the valet parking service was dismal upon arrival (self-parking is not an option here).. We arrived around 2 am due to a... More
