Positive Reviews

Clean and well-maintained

This hotel has a fresh, breezy and laid-back atmosphere that suits the Southern California vibe. Guests love the cleanliness and old world luxury of this hotel, and the property itself is well taken care of.

Great location

Close to many shops and restaurants, this hotel has a prime location in the heart Newport Beach. Plus, the waterfront location makes for great views. Surfers, shoppers, and families alike will be able to find something of interest within walking distance.

Room with a view

Rooms with views over the bay are stunning. They may be more expensive, but guests say the views are worth it in the end. If you're considering a room at this hotel, consider a room with a full ocean view to get the most out of your experience.

Negative Reviews

It's pricey

If you bring a car, the daily parking fee adds up quickly. Be aware that there is a resort fee that will be applied to your room rate, which covers a variety of services and amenities. Some guests feel that the resort fees don't validate the cost of the overall stay.

A few updates are needed

Overall, the hotel is in good condition. However, guests have noted that few items, such as stained carpeting and damaged furniture in rooms require replacement. Other minor issues, such as tarnished fixtures, have been noted.

Skip the restaurant

On-site dining options are just average, according to reviews from past guests. With so many other restaurants in the area, the hotel restaurant has some hefty competition. You might be best exploring the local eats instead of dining at the hotel.
