“Excellent staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

The staff made this one night stay extraordinary. From check in with Marcie to the housekeeping mother-daughter team to getting to know the adorable Hannah that afternoon (and another evening chat after dinner) made the stay seem like several days. The lobby is great and everything was very clean. We will stay there again when back in the vicinity. Hopefully soon!

Room Tip: As mentioned in other posts, try for the two rooms up front, though I am guessing you have to book t...

This hotel could not be in a better location, you are literally across from the beach with restaurants surrounding you. The hotel staff is wonderful and very friendly. The room was nicely laid out but very small, it was would be tough for 2 people to share. There was also a bug issue in my room that I heard other hotels guests complain about as well so for those reasons I likely would not recommend this hotel.

The staff at the Newport Beach Hotel was exceptional, assistant manager Marcie was very accommodating to our request for an early check in, granted this was after a holiday weekend in September, so traffic was a little light. We had the Mariner Room, which although was on the small side, the bed was comfortable and the room very nicely decorated with the nautical theme, huge shower and extremely clean. There is a nice sitting area on the second floor that overlooks the beach and is a great place to have an afternoon bottle of wine taking in the sights. One of the great benefits of this hotel is the free use of beach cruiser bikes, this is the only way to tour the beach & nearby Balboa Island, this is a must. It is also great to have free use of beach chairs and towels for the beach. The only reason why I rated this Very Good vs. Excellent is due to the size of the room, although bigger rooms are available. We would stay there again great value for your money.

The room is lovely and the people who work there couldn't be nicer. The tricky thing about booking and paying for "beach-front" hotels in California is that just when you think you've considered everything, there's a new obstacle. There are no buildings between your "ocean-front" room and the actual ocean, but there is a parking lot full of 4 lanes of cars, tons of honking etc. If the picture in your head is one of serenity and the sounds of waves lapping on the shore, you have a lot to block out here. That said, don't pay extra for the ocean-view and enjoy the bikes, the towels, parking, wine, breakfast and terrifically friendly hosts.

I loved this hotel. The room had a comfortable bed, large spa bath and was beautifully decorated.
We were in a room back from the beach and it was very quiet although not a lot of sunlight got in the room.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
I loved the free cruiser bikes you can use. Great to ride up the boardwalk which is right outside the hotel. The wifi was good and you could get it anywhere in the hotel and the breakfast was simple but very nice.

Taking a trip to Newport Beach Hotel was an absolute pleasure. Staying at the hotel captured the hustle and bustle of people making their trek to the beach...summing up Americana at the beach for the summer. Our hostess provided us with bikes, locks, towels and boogie boards for our day for fun in the sun. Tutti Fruitti yogurt is around the corner and plenty of dining within walking distance. Our hostess was kind and extremely helpful!

My finance and I recently stayed at the hotel at the beginning of July. We had a wonderful visit. We've stayed there twice so far and have enjoyed both trips. The staff and customer service was excellent and very accommodating! Great customer service goes a long way and they provide it. One of the best attributes about this place would be the location. It will literally take you ten seconds to walk to the beach and put your little tootsies into the water. Yeah, that close! It is also next door to the infamous Mutt Lynch's restaurant/bar. They provide all the amenities from beach chairs, towels, umbrellas to boogie boards and beach cruisers to ride up and down the board walk. The rooms are average but very clean. They also provide a continental breakfast in the morning to start your day. The only negative mark I would give this place would be the parking situation. They do provide enclosed parking at the premises which is a definite plus, however if you show up in anything bigger than a Mini Cooper you're going to have a problem. Even for the professional valet parker the spaces are a little difficult to maneuver into. All in all we love this place and will definitely come back.
