I just love this hotel. Looks like it might be a new OC hotspot! Super nice rooms and even a little nightlife down in the bar in the lobby. Good music and good crowd.

Get away

The new décor of the hotel is beautiful, and the food was great. The service in the lounge was a bit slow, when there were 3 waitresses and just about the same amount of patrons. It's new, so I'm sure that will improve. Everything else was great.

nice hotel for a staycation

Drove down from LA to spend LBD weekend in Newport Beach, and this was a great place to stay. I've stayed here once before a while back, but the rooms are even nicer now. Bose sound system for the flat panel TV and play music from your iPhone which was a nice perk. Pool area is moderately sized with great drink/food service. The Oak Grill restaurant is a decent dining option if you're too lazy to leave the grounds. Nice location within miles of the beach and right next to Fashion Island mall which has abundant dining and shopping options. Staff is courteous and attentive. Will be back.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

To save on valet, If you're willing to take a short walk up stairs, typically there is available street parking along Newport Center drive.

Wait until renovations are done

Hotel did not advertise that major renovations were being done. 7am wake up by workmen on memorial day. Overpriced on food that is available. Wait for the work to be done before going anywhere near this place.

Not impressed

Everything felt old with a new coat of paint. The "bar" was an extension of the front desk. Other than all of the beautiful cars parked in front of the hotel, I didn't see much luxury.
