Nice Comfortable Hotel. Great Staff. I liked the decor.

Wonderful staff, comfortable beds, hotel updated beautifully

The bed was really comfortable. The hotel is very very clean and the staff is very nice. I would definitely stay here again. Valet parking is mandatory unfortunately and that’s where they get you on the price as well as Wi-Fi is not free.

Great location and value, and they kindly upgraded our room which was awesome!

Great location, beautiful facade! Great view, clean bedrooms and function rooms!

Hotel was clean and the staff was incredibly nice. The rooms are spacious and the beds are unbelievably comfortable.

Our only complaint is that there is no self-parking. We got a great price on the room, and really loved it, however, I'm not used to not having self-parking in Southern California, so did not look for the parking policy when I booked. We were sadly surprised. It added $33 to the bill, which made it not such a great deal after all.

This was my 4th or 5th time staying here. 2nd since new management took over and it turned into the Renaissance. Rest assured, I will NOT be coming back. The hotel is beautiful and clean. The rooms are comfy. The front desk staff is decent. The 2nd time I ever stayed I was offered a lovely free upgrade to a king suite. But they really get you by OVER CHARGING for everything. $30ish mandatory valet? It’s in a business park, this is not near the beach or anything, parking shouldn’t be insane. Whatever, it’s always been that price. Last year cabanas were free. This year? I believe they want to charge $100! Just for some chairs and shade. WiFi was free last time. This time it was $10. We had the most mediocre breakfast w/ a mimosa and coffee... it was $75. The waiter at the bar asked what drink I wanted 4 times. Oh also, it was $4 for a kids apple juice. Wow. My boyfriend asked a staff member for salsa, stood there 5 min and then asked again and was greeted with “well who did you ask? What was their name?” Sorry I didn’t think we were supposed to learn the names of the staff. We are officially choosing a new hotel for our bi monthly Newport stays.

Great modern hotel! Loved having hardwood floors and Aveda products

The hotel was awesome. What wasnt great was an unexpexted $33 daily VIP valett charge!!! There was no self parking so you were trapped into the Velet not to mention being told this when parking.

The food at the hotel is excellent! It was disappointing that there is only valet parking for $33 a night. Be prepared for the pool. . It’s a party hotel on the weekends! The rooms On the pool side are noisy.

Room doors do not self close. No security personnel. Massive fight at swimming pool. Hotel had no security personnel to respond. Won’t stay again ever.

Wanted to get away for the night and we booked the room last minute. It was nice and relaxing. Even though it was only for one night

This is a very pretty hotel. Staff were all helpful and happy to see us. The lobby and common areas are gorgeous. Some of the rooms are newly renovated, some are under renovation, and some are yet to be renovated. Be sure the type of room you want is available in the stage of reno you’re comfortable with. Also, be sure to calculate into your nightly rate the mandatory $33/night valet parking charge. They are a valet-only hotel.

Breakfast bar kinda pricey overall nice hotel and staff are nice
