When we stepped into our room following a long east to west coast flight and road trip - our reaction was "Wow!" The cool pacific breeze from our large window refreshed us immediately. Although the beach was steps away, we had a front row seat to the most gorgeous sunset ever from the comfy wicker chairs placed by the window.
A unique feature was the luxurious raised tub, strategically placed for privacy but with a glass wall allowing us to relax in the whirlpool while still feeling a part of the beach scene outside. We woke every morning to local surfers enjoying the waves at daybreak near the pier. Our room was clean and spacious, the staff attentive and friendly, the location an easy walk to shopping and restaurants. We loved the Fly n' Fish Oyster Bar located right next door. We also particularly enjoyed bicycling around the beach area and Balboa Island. The hotel is also a short distance from the boardwalk spanning the Newport and Balboa piers..great for walking and rollerblading!
Newport Beach hotel is a great antidote to the glass and concrete crackerbox hotels. A small hotel with a "beachy" vintage feel.
We enjoyed the hotel so much that we added on an extra day to our stay. Next year we plan a family gathering there as we feel that the Newport Beach Hotel is a great central location for us all, with much to offer all ages and interests.
