My husband and I have stayed at the Fairmont Newport Beach numerous times. It's just a stone's throw from the airport and less than a 10 minute drive to Corona Del Mar, where we spend most of our time when in Orange County.
For a Fairmont Hotel, the rates are incredibly reasonable. That being said, it's nothing like it's counterpart in San Francisco, so don't expect anything spectacular. The pool area is average. It would have been nice to have had a server checking in more than every half hour... we had to go down to the bar to order drinks and had to call someone to replenish the towels.
If all you need is a comfortable bed, a dependable hotel, and convenient access to the Newport Beach community, then choose this hotel. I know that the next time we're down in the OC, we'll be staying here again.
