This hotel is very convenient to the airport. They have a free shuttle to and from the airport. The elevators are crazy fast which is so nice! The best thing about this hotel is the breakfast. You have to get it! Everything on the menu is delicious! We would definitely stay here again! Rooms are nice too.

Hotel's Favorite
Wow! The RNB has been our family destination for years. We love this hotel with its warm and loving staff and fun Beachy decor. Thank you to Mackenzie and Braydon at the front desk for taking great care of us from check in to check out. Breakfast at Current is always awesome. The food is so delicious and always has a beautiful presentation. While we have our favorites from the menu, they also brought back the awesome buffet. There is a great assortment for all and one item Is better than the next thanks to a great Chef! Luis is unbelievable. He takes such great care of us. He makes the best specialty coffee for us with Vanilla lattes being a family favorite. The breakfast staff works so hard and takes customer service to a whole new level. Carina, Luis and Mary are like family to us. The rooms are perfect and the location awesome. This is a one stop property whether you are with family, a couple or traveling for business. It is all about the service. Under the leadership of Mark Sugars, the staff always exceeds our expectations! Thank you Mark and Team, you are awesome and we cannot wait to see you again!

I stayed for a week for business and pleasure at this beautifully renovated hotel. The staff and managers are outstanding. They truly care about their guests and passionate about service. Special mention for excellent service by Mary (Restaurant Manager), Reggie (waiter) and Markus ( GM). The Wednesday reception for BonVoy Elite provided an extra touch and the food were amazing. It is also worth mentioning the cleanliness and convenience to everything. I highly recommend this hotel.

Such an amazing stay at Renaissance Newport Beach. This hotel has such an amazing vibe. The entire place is so nice and clean, the decor was very hip and modern. Every single person who works here was so friendly and eager to help. We stayed in a 2 Queen room that had a Mountain View. The room was spacious, clean and very well kept. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone visiting.

I saw the reviews on this hotel a day before checking in so I couldn’t cancel our reservation anymore. Day of our checkin, I thought it weird that they charged incidentals on my credit card 5x for a night stay but I let it go since the charges were pending. Overall, our 1 night stay was good. The hotel has a nice modern touch and it was clean. The bed was comfy. Checkout was fast and lady at the counter said that they would email me the bill. They never did, I had to call again to ask. A few hours later I was billed for another 4x my actual bill. Tried talking to a manager, was hung up on TWICE. I don’t know what kind of company you guys are running but these are FRAUDULENT CHARGES and someone has to be accountable for it. DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL if you don’t want to deal with the aftermath. Wish I could have read the reviews before booking. Hope you can read this before deciding to stay!

Spent a Saturday night in town and was originally reluctant to stay here, as I recall it originally being the Marriott Newport Beach, an average business hotel stay. The hotel has been through a major renovation with a new look. Very modern lobby, bar and rooms. The hotel restaurant food is average at best, however there are hundreds of places nearby, especially if you are a "foodie". The rooms are ample size, and if you like a soft bed, this is the place. Personally I prefer a medium or firm mattress. The room service menu mirrors the downstair lobby bar. Basic food at good prices. After our event, we went to the pool area which was very disappointing. Again you will be reminded that this is a business persons hotel. One of the smallest pools that appeared to be a rectangular fiberglass molded pool. No ambience and certainly would not be enjoyable once it gets crowded. All in all, a decent place for an overnighter or two. Located about 10 minutes from the beach and major shopping areas.

Don’t book with this hotel ! They charged my card for nights I never got confirmation for . Website is always freezing . I’ve been waiting weeks for a refund on my card. Accounting manager told me I could wait up to 2 months for my refund. Then told me I’m better off making a claim with my banks. So unprofessional please stay away from this hotel.

Recently spent three nights at the Renaissance Newport Beach Hotel. This was my second stay at this hotel, and I intend to stay again here on my next trip to the area. Initially, my room was spacious and clean as was the hotel. This hotel is about 5 minutes from John Wayne Airport ( an airport shuttle services is provided at no charge t/from SNA) and about 45 minutes (off peak) to LAX. Although this hotel is not located on or within walking distance to a beach, it is centrally located near Huntington Beach, Newport Beach Pier, and Angel Stadium. Each trip via Uber is a short 15 - 20 minute ride / $15 - 20 Uber/Lyft charge. The hotel pool is relaxing and the fitness center is well equipped for a good workout. The hotel also features a nice bar and convenient restaurant, and is within walking distance of , among other things, a couple of sandwich shops, a 7-11, and a Starbucks. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to individuals, couples, families, and business travelers. I look forward to my return.

Located near John Wayne airport, you’ll be minutes away from everything Orange County has to offer. The public spaces and rooms seem to have been recently renovated. Everything is pretty bright and modern. Our room was very comfortable and I slept great on the bed and, minus a very ugly stain on the couch, it was spotlessly clean. Self-parking is a whopping $37/day. We had breakfast in the restaurant each day and it was very good. However, the restaurant hours posted throughout the property were incorrect and they should be updated. However, the customer service I encountered left a lot to be desired. We booked a package on Marriott.com that included parking and a daily dining credit and yet at check-in they had no record of the package details. I showed them our booking confirm and was promised that everything would be fine, but alas it was not. My folio at check-out was incorrect, and I was told by the front desk before we departed that everything would be fixed, but alas it was not and I had to call back twice to get it fixed. While the AGM I ended up speaking to was very helpful and courteous and finally got everything resolved, some of the front desk staff are not very professional and kind of ditzy. Front line customer service is a tough job but some of the front desk staff could definitely use some guidance.

Stayed at this hotel for a business trip. We held an on-site meeting for 11 people. This is a well-maintained property located close to John Wayne Airport. Strongly suggest taking Uber from Airport to hotel. It's not really walkable. The room was above average and showed a lot of wear. The door key reader was malfunctioning and without asking, they provided a credit. The bed was fabulous and the linens very upscale. The hotel restaurant serves breakfast only and it is not included in the room rate. There are several great restaurants within walking distance. The meeting room was spacious and comfortable. The hotel catered fruit, pastries, coffee and tea for breakfast. The food was a little light for 11 people. Our meeting room was off the pool and we enjoyed taking our breaks poolside. Overall, it's a great location and value for business travel.
