Fairmont Newport Beach

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel but probably would not return. It is located in more of an upscale office area, not that close to any other attractions. Plus, the restaurant is fairly pricey. But, the room was great. Very clean, very comfortable bed. And, the other annoyance was the mandatory valet parking at $24.00 per night.

Meet Dingman

The hotel is lovely, in a perfect place for my business & a real value for the dollar. Everyone was helpful-including the great Concierge & Valet folks-& made my stay very enjoyable. Thanks,

Local 5 star Italian restaurant named Barone. Suggested by Lisa at the Concierge & one of the best I have been at. I would rate it a 5 star!

Disappointing

Room guarantee was not honored. Valet parking is the only option and the service is very slow. Too many pets are allowed that are out of control. Not close to the 4 star I was led to believe.

Good value for business travel

This hotel is close to the freeway, and just down the street from John Wayne Santa Ana airport, so if you have business in Orange county it is a great choice. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. I stayed only two days for business, and did not get a chance to check out the pool, gym or other amenities. I did eat in the restaurant, which was pretty good. Although it was open for seating, the bar had no service pretty early Saturday night ( I walked in just after midnight and there was no barman on duty). There is no self parking, (valet only), so beware the unfortunately common daily parking rate, which is discounted for the weekend. If you're the type to shop around online to get the most from your company's daily hotel spending limit, parking (and tipping the valet) has to be accounted for. I had a problem with the room was assigned ( a bad smell coming from the air conditioning unit) but within 5 minutes of calling the front desk a building engineer came up to check into it, and within another 5 minutes I was moved into another room. So, overall, great service, nice facility and convenient location.

A Many location Fairmont Guest and hotel sevices consultant.

Room decor looked tired, and tiny. Internet $14.00 per day??(are you kidding me??? this is 2013, not 1996), even budget hotels have complimentary internet. TV reception was marginal. $20.00 for a continental breakfast, (again, are you KIDDING me???). Again, budget properties offer complimentary breakfast. This property has awesome potential, but work is needed.

Comfort and style

Staff here is top notch. It can't get much friendlier. They act as if they are delighted to have you as a guest. The room is perfectly laid out and there is a REAL bathtub instead of the now "trendy" shower that some of us don't find comforting at the end of a long day.

Pretty Standard

Great staff, but the hotel is pretty standard....You must valet park your car, which is a little expensive. Some of the furniture had stains.
