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!
No more than 300.
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 regency newport beach https:/…newpo is a great option! great hotel, pool with slide, close to beach, next door to newport dunes with inflatable water park, close to shopping center fashion island....can't go wrong!
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! :)
