Great property. Stuck us in the clubhouse side when I paid for main building

Hotel was not helping solve my issue of changing the nights of stay from 2 nights down to one

Great - definitely recommend. Let us check in early and customer service was wonderful

The resort is elegant without being gaudy. Great restaurant with reasonable prices. Spacious rooms.

This is an excellent well managed property. Somewhat expensive bit well worth the price.

restaurants closed earlier although it said it would close at midnight.

100% current - state of the art elegance . Clean. Sharp.

I liked everything about about the stay. The staff was very helpful

The perfect spot in the OC for a little get away. Getting a room that overlooks the waterfront and the beautiful boats is a treat. Not to mention all accomidations included.

Always a relaxing and pleasurable stay at the B.B. Club

Very nice hotel & Excellent staff. Restaurants were great too but I wish they have more in their menu. Overall, great experience

Missing amenities for the price of a resort. Not impressed wish we had gone to the Marriott Villas.

This hotel was very nice. A bit expensive for my usual taste but I booked it as a gift to my mother during her wedding weekend. It was right off PCH and the beach. The bellmen and valet were very nice. Front desk - not so much. But otherwise a great stay.

Great staff, and a quick drive to the beach. I would love to stay here again if I'm visiting Newport Beach!

Most staff was nice. Shower was uncomfortable, only warm water. Very loud being next to California 1/ pacific highway. If you don't have a lot of money not a good hotel to be at, other guests and staff turn their nose up at you. In brochure they said robes and slippers. No slippers were provided and one robe was removed and never returned.

One of the greatest resorts in newport But unfortunately the last day when we wanted to check out The employee ask us to pay around $150 hotel fees !!! FYI We did already pay everything for our stay 4 nights through orbitz so why do we have to pay additional $150?! She told us the fee is for the WIFI and the 2 complementary evian bottles of water!!!! We were shocked and surprised all this amount for a free wifi and a $10 bottle of water!!! This is the only thing we were disappointed about
