“Sorta Nice, But Many Faults”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

This is a great looking hotel on the outside. Once inside, it has a few warts. Like noisey air conditioning in the room, and dinner that is better eaten at an off-premise steakhouse. And, the $21 per night parking is a real wallet-teaser. Perhaps what really irked me the most was the lack of customer service when I would call. I had people just switch me to the national Marriott reservations line before I could even say what I needed. Or, one of their fine staff who 3 times promised to return my call, but never did - a few years ago, this would not have been accepted by Marriott Hotels, but I guess times change and the Marriott brand label now includes tolerance for sloppy maintenance, less-than-premium restaurants, and broken promises. So, it rates a average review, and a no-return committment.

This is a great place to get away for a night, the property used to be called a Marriott Suites and it still retains the suite room layout. The weekend rates are usually a good value, except for the insanely high parking charge. If your willing to walk a block you can park for free on the street down on Bayview Way. The pool is great and the outdoor fire pit is a great place to end a romantic evening.

That's the good, now the bad. Overall Marriott's standard customer care is well below par here. If you are looking for over the top service or care, move on up the road to Newport Beach Marriott. I stay here a couple of times a year and the value makes up for the service.

Room Tip: If possible get a room on the bay side and you don't have to park on site.

This is part two of Good Value...Sunrise Redondo BW.
It was like a breathe of fresh air after the Sunrise BW Redondo.
We stayed in this area before. Close to freeway, malls, good restaurants as well an easy drive to Fashion Mall and Balboa Island. All and all a good neighborhood.
Check-in was seamless and welcoming. The lobby and room are well appointed, more of what we were looking for.
Our room was a one bedroom (fourth floor road side, quiet) with a pullout and Murphy bed.
Good size bathroom with tub and separate shower. Plus plenty of closet space for luggage etc. A mini fridge and coffee maker as well complimented the room.
Pool area was a hit, hot tub was hot. Workout area and gear are current. Ordering poolside was good and not as expensive as I thought. I recommend the clubhouse!
Breakfast buffet was fresh with a good selection. Top shelf omlettes! If you have kids under ten as we do go for the buffet.
Think it's half price.
Make sure you hit Beni Haunas if you find youself here. A great dinning experience for everyone. Don't forget to bring your own wine (minor cork fee).
As crazy as it sounds the BW Sunrise and this hotel are the same price...$179!
Overall I recommend this property as a better value top to bottom.
Look for Pt.3 soon. Next stop Legoland!
If you want suggestion on California vacations please don't hesitate to ask.

If you are a birdwatcher, being able to walk from the hotel to top quality lagoon birdwatching makes this a wonderful place to stay. Add to that the hummingbirds and finches which bathe in the patio fountain!
For everyone - this is a high-end Marriott, convenient to Irvine and the John Wayne airport. Good food, bar area and nicely spacious rooms. All the staff extremely helpful.

I just spent the weekend at Newport Beach Bayview and was treated very well and the staff was courteous and professional from the time we checked in. The employee that checked us in Connor was very welcoming and upbeat. We requested a late checkout because our next stop was the Newport Coast Villas and our room wasn't going to be ready until later that afternoon. He approved the request and we were able to bridge our time between both resorts.
The first night we had dinner at the bar because we were jet lagged and didn't feel like venturing out. The female bartender was friendly and recommended a couple of entrees that were right on!!
Very pleased with the staff and immenities at the resort and would definitely return for another stay.

Stayed there for three nights recently. It's a nice property with spacious rooms, but I was not pleased sharing my space with dogs. After having a conversation with management, I was informed that pets were not allowed above the 5th floor or in lounges & resturants. Unfortunately this policy is not inforced. I will probably choose another Marriott when I return to the area.

My Uncle came in town and wanted a place where her could enjoy golf, the beach and visit relatives. He was so please with his room. it had a view of the Back-bay and a separate living room to entertain. The staff was most helpful with directions and he enjoyed his golf game which was less then ten minutes away. We ate at the hotel one night and the food was delicious.
