Great location, and the staff are exceptionally professional and friendly. The valet parking is very quick. Not happy about being pet friendly. Bathrooms needs to be updated. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

We were flying out of John Wayne airport and after staying at beach for a coupleof days with a dog, we booked this hotel (advertised dog friendly). Our arrival greeting was not on the standards of The Fairmont Hotels. After standing and watching three registration employees absolutely ignore us after 4 or 5 minutes, I finally asked if someone could...

I've stayed at this property several times and it's OK. Great location if you have to catch an early morning flight out of John Wayne Airport. Overnight parking is on pricier side. The valet uses the lot attached to the office building the same one with signs post no hotel parking. This begs the question why can't guest self park...

We used this property as a base for a weekend of shopping. Convenient for both South Coast Plaza and Fashion Island. The hotel is well cared for with a very welcoming staff. We did not use either the restaurants or room service so can not speak to those amenities. The beds were scrumptious. Parking was valet only at $30.00 (typical)...

Hotel - beautiful, large, welcoming, comfortable and clean. The entrance had a welcoming committee of about 8 valet to greet us. A convenient location not too far from the John Wayne airport and the Fashion Island Mall. We drove in from Vegas and we received a warm welcome. Don't be sold on the "valet only" statement.

I was visiting Newport Beach for a business conference which was being held at the Fairmont Newport Beach, so I booked accommodations there for convenience.

I've stayed at this hotel a number of times over the years (including when it was a "Le Meridien" and a "Sutton Place").

I stayed two nights in a suite on the 5th floor. The rooms were well appointed with comfortable furniture and large televisions. The sounds of the nearby John Wayne Airport are not too loud or obnoxious. The staff was very helpful and the available breakfast buffet was very nice.
