We are soooooo glad that we choose the island... More

Here comes my first ever review - about time considering how much I have used this site and the travelling I do for work and pleasure. Stayed at Island hotel for second summer in a row - this time I booked three week from July 26th to August 17th. For a start the reason I stayed so long was the... More

The hotel is a great property, rooms are well appointed and clean. The location is great, there are a lot of restaurants within walking distance and overall centrally located to many activities. Stay here if you are not offended by rude, unpleasant and unfriendly front desk staff. We usually never write reviews but for what this hotel charges including the... More

We spent our holiday at Island Hotel New Port Beach this Summer 2015 and had an excellent stay. The hospitality, the room type and room service had improved drastically from what we experienced last summer when we had booked rooms at the same hotel in 2014. The room was convenient and the staff treated in a friendly manner. Overall excellent... More

My husband and I took a night away from the kids and had a fabulous "date night" at the Island Hotel for just one night…Let me just tell you that one night felt like a true vacation away!! This hotel was beautiful, super clean and very comfortable. Everyone we came in contact with (valet, room service, concierge, front desk, pool,... More

Located in the heart of Newport Beach, the Island Hotel is a fantastic spot to get away for the weekend. My wife and kids had a great time at the pool and eating out in the Oak Grill. The service was great and the food was wonderful. The hotel is located across the street from Fashion Island, so if you... More

The rooms were clean and the service was excellent. We would like to extend special thank to Mrs. Nadia Al-Shakshir, who was... More

This was our first stop on a tour up the coast of America and we were so impressed by the overall look and feel of this hotel. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. It is a large hotel by anyone's standards but every single member of staff treated you like it was a small, boutique establishment and that is without... More

Spent a special weekend at the Island Hotel in May. The room was beautiful and the whole hotel is clean and well kept. The Concierge was most gracious in assisting us with a tour booking as well as with restaurant recommendations. We enjoyed lounging in the big chairs around the pool, and the lobby bar made for a fun end... More

Our 5 weeks at this hotel were wonderful! Our suite was fully equipped and they even brought up a small refrigerator and a microwave for our use. The staff were friendly and very accommodating and shortly knew our names. The Island Club, where we had breakfast daily and wine and appetizers many evenings, was staffed with efficient and friendly personnel,... More
