This was our first stay at this beautiful hotel, but definitely not our last. My husband and I were very pleased with everything about this hotel from the beautiful spacious suite with a stunning view from the balcony, to the excellent and friendly staff, even the towels smelled wonderful. Also, our dining experience was awesome! Beautiful atmosphere, excellent food, perfect... More

I stayed at the Island this weekend and can not say enough about it. The lobby/bar area is luxurious but welcoming. And speaking of the bar--definitely the "place to be" after 10pm! First you must eat at The Oak Room restaurant, everything was great but I highly recommend the Ahi TarTar and a must is the Butter Cake for dessert!!... More

The location is across the street from Fashion Island which is a great outdoor shopping area with lots of restaurants. Our room was on the 12th floor with views of the Back Bay and ocean. Our room was very nice and spacious. The staff was excellent and one could tell they enjoyed their jobs at this hotel. Breakfast was fantastic.... More

Julie Baxley - a massage therapist at the Spa - is amazing! Probably the best massage I have ever had from a wonderful person. If you have a massage at Islands, ask for her by name!! Great property, restaurants, staff and Spa.

Connie, So nice of you to recognize Julie. She's also a gifted singer who delivered a brilliant performance at our employee "talent show" this week. Julie is a wonderful ambassador for Island Hotel Newport Beach. We'll make sure to share your review with Julie and I'm thrilled that you enjoyed your massage. Thank you, Gerard More

As a business traveler, my issues are all about convenience to my meetings, having a good place for a dinner meeting and a good night's rest. The Island hotel is a standout in being a great place for a good rest. The beds are very comfortable, the AC works well, and the rooms clean and well serviced. The recent renovation... More

Location is perfect location for Newport Beach and the surrounding areas with so much to do steps away from the property. Rooms are comfortable and spacious and I enjoyed the views of the area from the 12th floor. Especially appreciated the convenience of the 20th floor concierge level with breakfast options and snack & libation options in the evening. Aqua... More

My husband and I have been staying at the Island Hotel every year for the past 9 years (even back when it was managed by the Four Seasons). We absolutely love everything about this hotel, and feel we have discovered an oasis of luxury. We were excited prior to our last trip to see the re-modelling that had taken place... More

I attended a conference hosted at the hotel. I then added an additional night not associated with the conference. Overall, the hotel was very good. It presents much closer to a 3.5 star hotel than a 5 star hotel but it has a lot of things that are very good. That being said, if you are not at a conference,... More

Great home away from home. While it's not the Four Seasons, the service and facility really try. The spa is first class; best massage in years. Room tip: high floor, not near elevators. Try for a separate living room. I stayed there while my home underwent a minor facelift. Negatives: parking fee insane and will discourage locals from entertaining at... More

I started a new job 6 months ago and have traveled to Newport Beach 7 times. I have stayed at both the Island Hotel and the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel & Spa. I had been bouncing back and forth between the two but now that the restaurant and lounge renovations have been complete the Island Hotel is hands down the... More
