Great property, great location, Great privacy. Even though located near Pimco and close to Pacific Life HQ's this place offers privacy, style and wonderful amenities. It reminded me of the Peninsula Hotel in Chicago but with better weather and a far more beautiful beach! :0 There are great hotels nearby like Pelican Hill, Laguna Beach Ritz, but we got great...

We stayed at the Island Hotel last week for four nights. Our travel agent booked a corner king suite with ocean view for the 3 of us. When we arrived, the gracious front desk clerk gave us a room on the 6th floor overlooking a parking lot - and a new apartment complex that was under construction - very noisy.... More

My husband and I totally enjoyed our 3 nights at this hotel. So close, but far away. We used our hotel credit given to us for dinner at their restaurant. Absolutely yummy. The short rib risotto was the best appetizer we have had in years.

First rate resort. It's large, well run, well maintained and well worth a visit. It has all the features you are hoping to find, delicious restaurants, hip bars and a resorty pool. Plus it's right across the street from Fashion Island Mall. Great service, friendly front desk, quick valets and happy restaurant and bar staff. Our room was a nice... More

Hi, I stayed at the island hotel with my wife and one kid for 10 nights and we were impressed with the quality and service. Especially the special service from Julia. She was very kind to surprise my wife with a birthday cake, and chatting and playing with our son whenever we are at the lobby (he loved her). She... More

Checked in early for a business conference. Front desk staff was exceptional. Held my luggage till room was available and while I was out meeting friends for lunch took it to my room when my room was available. Food at hotel was good and service friendly and attentive.

My husband and I dropped by the Island Hotel In Newport Beach to see for ourselves what was going on. The front desk clerk asked a bellman to show us several rooms. We were impressed. Big time.

We have stayed here repeatedly when we come down to visit the area which is numerous times a year. We are never disappointed. The rooms are clean and updated, the bed comfortable, and they always go above and beyond in details and requests. I love that the Fashion Island Mall is across the street allowing us to walk to numerous... More

Upon arrival greeted by a courteous and friendly front desk staff. Spacious room. Close to a wonderful mall with many shops, eateries and movie theaters. Formerly the Four Seasons years ago, it is a couple of miles to the beach. Only negative was the front desk did not have available to borrow any charging cables for newer iPhones.
