I was looking forward to our 2 night stay at the Newport Beach Hotel & Suites. We booked our Monday/Tuesday late July stay on-line through their website and paid the rate of $399 a night for a one king bed suite. Taxes added another $52 per night, plus there is a seasonal $12 per night parking fee. Quoting from their website “All bedrooms offer king size beds with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors leading to Juliet balconies.” Well, unluckily for me, room 303 did not. Both the bedroom and bath looked out on a wall about 2 feet from the windows. If I had wanted to look out the window and see a wall, I would have booked a hotel in New York City.
While the rest of the room was pretty much as promised, that dark, dead space outside the window did not equal a $450 a night experience as portrayed by the advertising. And perhaps surprisingly while I did not have much contact with other guests during my stay, I did hear another similar complaint about what I would assume was the room below 303. This is definitely one place where you might want to look at the room before you unpack.
