“Great view, great meal, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

Outstanding hotel - restuarant. The GM Dieter is a gem. Very fresh food, extremely well preparred, excellent wine list plus a outstanding view of Newport Harbor. What's not to love. Well it is a bit pricey. But worth it.

“First Cabin for view, food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2013

Whether the occasion is a business lunch, celebration dinner or casual gathering with a couple of friends, this is a great spot. Outdoor heaters and sun-brellas make eating next to the bay, enjoyable. The staff is professional and attentive while trained to understand when business is being conducted to not be overly intrusive. The food is terrific especially when sticking with the salads and seafood. In an area that boast many great restaurants, this one deserves consideration.

“Pleasant stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2012

If you are looking for a hip, sexy hotel, this is not it. However, it is a nice upscale, full-service, well-run, clean hotel. Somewhat corporate and lacking charm, but nice and large rooms. Suggestion, to avoid expensive parking charges, park right out on the street for free.

“John Wayne hangout is awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

If you are a John Wayne fan, check out the Balboa Beach Club & Resort's "Dukes" bar. Great painting of JW and lots of pictures. The burger was one of the best I've ever had and the cheese, fruit and crackers appetizer is very impressive. Price was very reasonable!
