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

Stayed here last night for one night to have a 5 star experience following 4 days in holiday-inn. They provide no complimentary water or internet in the room. When I asked for it they said you can get water from the mini bar at a charge. Then tried to have dinner but as a hotel guest they tell you to... More

Stayed in one of the larger suites. Spacious but hardly 4 or 5 star service/cleanliness. Couch was dirty and stained; turn-down service was virtually non-existent - essentially plopped a bath mat by the beds; on first night, we had a complimentary bowl of fruit/water placed in the room, which was a nice gesture although it was accompanied by 2 glasses...

Thank you for your positive reviews regarding the poolside service and your experience at our newly redesigned pool area. Island Hotel is in the process of completing a reinvestment project, which began in 2013. Our lobby was recently redone, and our goal is to keep our lobby open, airy, and relaxing. Our hotel concierge is available to assist our guests... More

I just want to know who in their right mind at Irvine Co felt that they needed to bring the douche bags to Fashion Island with the new Aqua Bar that takes over the entire hotel. Pool,Lobby, etc.. gets over run by low class shady guys and gals. This is no longer a classy hotel for the elite, it is... More

The location is nice as it's close to shopping and the beach. The room was ok. If possible, get a room on the higher floors. If not be prepared for wonderful views of foliage. I'm not a fan of the low-flow facilities as it's just annoying. The shower should definitly have a handle bar inside. If you happen to slip... More

From beginning to end our day at this hotel was full of problems. Highlights included: Messing up our appt times at the spa, the Valet losing the car for an hour and a half and waking up the following morning to $165.00 worth of unauthorized charges made to my credit card and still waiting for a manager to call me...

Thank you for visiting Island Hotel with your friends to celebrate a birthday. A spa day seems like a great way to spend part of the day. We are pleased that the spa honored the time that you had scheduled and that your friend was able to make it to Oak Grill for lunch. We make every effort to provide... More

Stayed there last December with my husband. Our room was perfect! Great views with two balconies. Service was excellent and we often think of returning. We could see the ocean and city views. We loved it!
