Island Hotel Newport Beach

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I am very pleased with this hotel. From the moment we arrived everyone was really friendly and helpful. Our flight arrived early so they accommodated us and got us into our room early. Close by restaurants and a short drive to the beach.

Great hotel and staff. Place is kept very clean. Right across from fashion island!

Great Hotel, good price, good location, Pool and fire pit were really good

We had an amazing time at the Island hotel. From the second we arrived we were welcomed and treated like 1st class during our entire stay. Had a surprise dessert awaiting us for our anniversary. Great rooms, amazing fitness center, great happy hour, the best staff. This place is top notch. You won't be disappointed. Can't wait to come back!

Room was not ready when we arrived. We arrived at 5pm and check-in is 3pm. The bell boys took our bags and we had to walk across the street to find dinner. They said they would call when the room was ready, but did not. The pool and hot tub were nice, but quite a distance from nice beaches. I just expected more for the money!

The hotel itself is top notch in terms service, cleanliness, design, food, amenities. The only downside is the location. Nothing is in walking distance and the peninsula is 10-15 minutes away. If you fly in, you'll need to rent a car or you'll be stuck with cabs or Uber to get around. Perfect if you're just in for business or to relax.

Nice and convenient hotel. No mini bar or snacks in room. They charge a $20 surcharge per night but tell you to use it in the gift shop. Crazy and disappointing. If not for the surcharge I would rate the hotel a great place to stay.

Booked this hotel for a quick girlfriends getaway. Beautiful hotel, amazing views with a wonderful helpful staff. Premium shopping nearby is a plus!

Very affordable for everything they had to offer. I recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

Just 1 night. This organization has excellent internal communication; masters details; has a clear understanding of its agenda. And it executes. Great property, great hiring; great self feedback; great execution. We stay in the finest hotels all over the world. This one gives little away to any others of it's profile. Thank you to everyone for our experience. You didn't fawn or micromanage-you just quietly were excellent.

I was there for a conference and tried going to sleep early. I could hear the music and all the big trucks passing by. The staff was not very friendly, not rude just not friendly.

This hotel is in a great location. I love the service level provided by all the staff. Nothing is ever a problem for anybody that I've asked. Very comfortable.

We'll definitley be staying at this hotel again. From the moment we pulled up until the moment we left, my family enjoyed every moment of our stay. As we walked into the hotel to check in, my little girls were handed darling little stuffed dolphins that they haven't stopped playing with for days. That set the tone for the rest of our staff. The staff was amazing, and our room perfect. This was our first time at this hotel and it won't be the last.

In desperate need of refresh. Decor is dated. Hotel is full of posers and drunk business travelers. Small rooms and old fixtures and furniture. Bathroom was large, only redeeming feature. My 16th floor coastline view was just barely a view. Expensive valet ($30) and no self-parking alternative. Would not stay again.

Wether traveling for business or pleasure, I typically stay at the Islands Hotel when in Orange County. The rooms are spacious and beds are extremely comfortable. Bathrooms are luxurious. The only issue I've ever had was with the noise level (if facing the pool area) and the staff delivered a humidifier to my room to drown out the noise. Love being within walking distance to Whole Foods at Fashion Island.

Very polite and knowledgable staff. Very nice hotel. I loved everything about my stay here. It's within walking distance of fashion island with has many shops and very nice restraunts. Super comfy bed and loved having a balcony! Will definitely come back!

We used this hotel for several days over Christmas, while visiting family in the area. Its a great location, close to shopping, restaurants and a short drive to the beach. Fun & festive decor, and had a very nice facial at the spa.

The staff was very accommodating and kind. The room was very clean and comfortable. I would definitely return here again.

The hotel overall was great. Just be ware of charges when you check in. WiFi is extra, Valet is expensive and there is a nightclub in the lobby bar on weekends that can be annoying if you don't know about it.

Very nice up scale Hotel, location is good as well. Staff was friendly and vallet did a good job also. I would recommend this place, I enjoyed my stay.
