3 nights in 721 overlooking the Island Mall which is a short walk away with shopping and many restaurants. Room was clean, quiet and well cared for, with a small walkout balcony. Wish every hotel had this feature. Hotel was under remodel so can't comment on other amenities. Staff was very helpful. Highly recommended. Standard complaint about WiFi being an... More

We had to book a hotel last minute as we had a funeral to attend in Newport Beach. The hotel is under construction at the moment, but the hotel staff will go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and not disturbed. They were so kind and very apologetic that the pool wasn't available for the kids.... More

After a 16 hour international flight, this hotel welcomed us in style. We were concerned about the construction - which is still going on - but we were never inconvenienced by it, nor affected by the noise. We asked for a room away from the construction and they honored the request. We were given complementary access to the "Club" on... More

Came up to Newport for an event and decided to stay for the night. We found the hotel to be very centrally located. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the room was great. We were on the back side so didn't have a view which didn't matter to us since it was a quick overnight but I did... More

A great hotel and preferable to the Marriott in the area. Rooms are modern and clean and spacious. Bed is comfortable and good facilities. The service is good and attentive. Location is great for the offices of Newport Beach and fashion island shopping centre.

First of all, the place is clean, well staffed and has nice furnishings. There is a very small bar in the lobby but no restaurant. So you pay for a place at Newport Beach but the pool and exercise lounge is being refurbished. No mention on their website. Very poor. There are better places in Newport.

Terrible Food, Unsatisfactory Deluxe Internet in guest rooms and meeting rooms, No pool, never ending construction noise, dishonest employees handling credit cards. I was there 4/7/14 to 4/9/14. Worst place ever in 20 years of business travel. They still owe me $400. for fraudulent charges.

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend honeymoon getaway trip. Before coming here, I planned a suprise massage day for her at their spa and we also packed our bathing suits for some lounging at their pool. Upon arriving, I was asked if I was aware of their renovation project. I had been visiting their website daily while... More

And the customer service was horrible. A pure nightmare for sure. Also no bar area or lounge to sit and relax at. There... More

We chose this hotel because our business meeting the following day was in an office building next door to the hotel Upon our arrival, we learned that this hotel used to be a Four Seasons Hotel but is now owned by the Irvine Company....
