Great spot

I was just there for a night but the room was so nice and the bed was comfortable! The valet staff worked really hard and the front desk/housekeeping staff were very friendly and efficient. Getting to the beach was simple too, about 15 minutes.

Event free stay

Safe but unexciting industrial park location. Nice lobby, nice room. Wish they had a convenient self parking option instead of $30 valet, though.

Great stay

I was completely satisfied with my stay at this hotel. The staff was very accommodating, the service was great and the hotel offered a lot of amenities. It was also quiet enough to sleep soundly, which is rare for a hotel. I would definitely stay here again!

Great value and a convenient location

i was headed to the Newport Beach area on business and needed to find a hotel for a one night stay. The Fairmont Newport Beach was the perfect place to stay. It is just down the road (5 minutes) from John Wayne Airport. It is located right off of MacArthur Blvd, which provides easy access to both the freeway and the beach area (15 minutes away). The room was clean and comfortable, and the health club is open 24 hours (very helpful for a business traveler). If you are on vacation with your family this may not the ideal place to stay because the hotel is located in a commercial area (although the area is clean and safe, with several dining options within walking distance). While I did not get a chance to visit the lobby restaurant or bar, they looked comfortable. I was overall very happy with my stay.

Pleasantly Surprised

From the moment I pulled up to the hotel I was pleasantly surprised by the kindness of the staff to the comfortable upscale setting I felt. The room was immaculate, had everything I needed for my stay and made my business trip very relaxing. I will for sure stay here again.
