“The perfect business-traveler hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

From a European perspective the style of the hotel is a bit ancient but everything is clean and faultless. But the hotel has a bar, a restaurant, a small pool, friendly staff, rooms with a good size and reasonable value for money. It’s nicely located at the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve, so perfect for a walk or running. Unfortunately the location is pretty remote so you definitely need a car or cab to see something else, since the immediate area doesn’t provide any attractions in walking distance.

Room Tip: A room with bayview is a good choice.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

I stayed here only for one night thinking it was the other Marriott Spa Hotel near the mall. The lobby has a small bar and the pool area was small as well. This hotel is really not in Newport Beach and it does not face a bay! This hotel is closer to John Wayne Airport and the main Fwy's.off Jamborree Rd. The water shed is a runoff not close to the ocean. The rooms are comfortable suites and the beds are simply divine, typical of Marriott. The breakfast buffet is scrumptuous and free if you are Gold Marriott member or above.

Room Tip: The "bayside" rooms are not worth the extra cost!

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry that you were not happy with your view and that our location didn’t fit your needs. Over 50% of our rooms have a bay view. Although it is good to see that you did enjoy your room and bed.
Sincerely, John

The Newport Beach Marriott Bayview has all of features of a big luxury hotel and the intimacy of a small boutique hotel. The staff is helpful, warm and friendly. The accommodations are lovely. The bed is comfortable and the rooms are very clean. Whether it's a business trip, family vacation or a weekend getaway for just the two of you, I highly recommend this hotel. My husband and I have stayed there twice and will surely use it as a home base when we need another get away weekend.

Room Tip: We personally like the suites that face the bay.

You can tell the hotel mainly caters to business travelers but made for a nice leisure stay. Rate we paid was reasonable for quality/location. Only complaint is that it would have been nice if the pool was slightly larger, but it was still ok size and enjoyable. Room was clean and well maintained. Short 20 minute drive to Disneyland.

Thank you so much for your comments. I'm sorry that the pool area was not sufficient for your need. We focus on not only the business traveler but with guests with families. I hope the next time your plans bring you to Orange County you will stay with us again.

Sincerely, John

Recently stayed here for business and would return for pleasure. I was given a suite which was very large and overlooked the water. The hotel common grouds are well kept and attractive. The general area is quite upscale with lots of cafes, etc. Pool is small but quite nice. Overall one of the nicest Marriotts I have stayed in. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel look out onto the bay.

There are not a lot of Marriott properties in this area and to qualify myself, I am a Platinum Marriott member. This location is right off of Jamboree and puts you in a very good location to go into LA or down south or to the beach or a quit run to Fashion Island.

OK. I was staying here to spend a night to meet an old friend and his wife. The entrance is grand and the social area and bar are in a strategic location for meeting and greeting.

The outside area with seating and gas fires are great for lounging and catching up. Pretty view and not crowded.

Our room was a one bedroom suite and I was very pleased with the size and the layout. The bathroom was huge and there was plenty of space to host an additional couple if needed.

The only thing that I could have issue with is that the place feels a little dated. But, I feel the same about the New Port Beach Beach View hotel too.

All in all, good value, great location, good service. You will not be disappointed if you have to stay there for any amount of time.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room facing the Bay.
