If you are looking for a hotel that is reasonably priced, great location and exceptional service I would recommend the Island Hotel. It's has a world class restaurant, a hopping bar/club on Thursday-Saturday and an amazing pool. With the many options the hotel has to offer my favorite spot to relax and get 5 Star service was pool side. If... More

I stayed in this hotel just after my stay at their sister hotel Pelican Hill resort. The hotel was really nice but the only problem it is a little bit old and I believe it needs a lot of work. The staff was really nice and friendly they offered a free upgrade to a better room. I believe the location... More

Khaledalsheikh, I regret that you didn't recognize the recent reinvestment in our entire hotel. Just a few months ago we unveiled a brand new lobby, lounge, restaurant, fire-pit, and our newest enhancement called Market Place. In addition all of our guests rooms were recently upgraded with new color accents, fabrics, chairs, and lamps (with outlets for your electronic devices). All... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Island on multiple occasions as we have family in the area and have always had a great experience. Our last two visits, were just mediocre. On our most recent visit, we brought with us, our new baby. We've always stayed here and appreciate a more upscale hotel, so we don't want to... More

Crystal, I'll begin with a heartfelt congratulations on the birth of your child! As a father of two myself I too appreciate the need for a good night's sleep. I believe that I have identified your up-coming reservation and will ensure that we place you on a higher floor. Aqua Lounge will recognize its 'one-year' anniversary in July. It has... More

My wife and I spent our wedding night here and our 8th anniversary here, both under the Four Seasons label. We are finally back for our 28th anniversary under the Island Hotel label. We can see that it is geared for a younger crowd than the Four Seasons was but, other than the Aqua Lounge, the difference is not that... More

We booked six days in a Pacific suite here as Newport Beach had been recommended to us to spend some time before the wedding we were in LA for. The location is good, easily accessible by car and opposite a very good shopping centre, but NOT near the beach, which was a bit of a negative for us. The hotel... More

Dear JonandBecs, It was disappointing to read your review and I'm sorry that it felt like 'process' took priority over genuine hospitality. If there is a theme in the many reviews we receive its often about our staff and their passion for attentive and personalized guest service. The feedback that you provided has been discussed and gives us an opportunity... More

Elegant, fun and well located if you are meeting PIMCO, Pacific Life or shoping at the Fashion Island Mall, the Island Hotel'slobby was recently renovated. The lobby / lounge area are outright beautiful, in shades of creamy leather and blue. They also offer a Market Place coffee shop which opens at 6am, and serves best-in-class capuccinos and OK sushi.

We recently visited Island Hotel for a stay-cation to celebrate our anniversary. The hotel itself was great and I was very pleased with the decor and overall experience. Check in was easy and friendly. We only saw an option to valet so keep that in mind as its $32 a night and maybe call ahead to inquire on self parking... More

My company had a small business meeting here and the staff was amazing. Everyone we came in contact with was very helpful and personable. The property is located in a great place with breathtaking views and walking distance to shopping and dining places.

Staff were extremely helpful and kind. Hotel is in a great location, few minutes walk to fashion island shops. Beach is about a 15 minute drive. We got the corner suite which wasnt bad but expected it to be a little fancier. Overall great hotel.

We stayed for two nights at this hotel, having stayed there on two previous occasions. On arrival we were upgraded to a Suite which was a nice surprise. We like the location of the hotel and its proximity to Fashion Island for shopping and restaurants. It is also a reasonable distance to drive to LAX for our evening flight home.... More
