Where to stay in Newport Beach

Planning to visit in June to stay for 1-2 nights with 2 kids, ages 2 and 4. We’d like to be close to the beach and kids activities and must have a pool. Thanks!

You'd be far better off looking in Laguna Beach. There are not a lot of hotels in Newport near the beach.

What is your budget per night?

Scott -- Have you checked out the new Lido House Hotel yet? http://www.lidohousehotel.com/ Not on the beach but beach close. I haven't been there yet. For beach hotels with "kids activities," I'd recommend the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach and Waterfront Hilton Huntington Beach.

Yeah and it is okay, but there isn't a lot in the area like Downtown Laguna Beach or Main Street HB. Maybe it will spur growth down there, but Lido Village wears thin quickly

Try the Waterfront Hilton Huntington Beach. They just opened a new tower and they are running some good deals. New pool with sliders and kids activities across from the beach.

Scott -- That was my initial impression -- that the new hotel didn't have much around it. I hope we'll see a revitalization in that area.

The Hyatt Newport Beach is only good if they have a car. If they're dependent on walking, that's not a good choice, because even Fashion Island is a good 30 minutes' walk.

Hyatt NB is not a good choice if you want to be "near the beach." You'd have to drive 15 minutes to an ocean beach. Newport Dunes is a lagoon, popular with families but really not an ocean beach. As Traveler said, it isn't walking distance to anything. Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach would be a much better choice. https:/…hunrh Hyatt HB or Waterfront Hildton would be the best choices with kids.

If you can get a room at the balboa bay club/resort or lido house, those are really the only places I know of that are near the beach and have a pool. There’s also a Marriott vacation club in newport coast. I believe that has a pool and is semi close to the beach when you cross over PCH. I’d suggest looking at air bnb (balboa island, corona del mar, and balboa peninsula would be closest to sandy beaches) as newport really doesn’t have many hotels near the beach, though pool selection will still be slim in those areas. I agree that Huntington may be a better fit! :)
