The Duke Hotel Newport Beach

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I booked this hotel because it said free breakfast but that wasn’t a free breakfast.. also they don’t let you park your own car...there is an extra charge for valet $33 a day ...

Changed room 2 times. First room-contruction repair next room. Changed room. The second room smelled of sewage. Changed room again. The air condition is old and makes noise whole night. Checked out next day drained.

Always pleasant staff. Very enjoyable . Room was clean and staff was professional.

The mandatory valet was not expected and put a damper on my money situation. Also, the food was ridiculously expensive. Comfortable and clean room. Great pool

Overall a good experience, and I would go back. We stayed at the Fairmont in the past, so we knew about the hotel. It is located close to where good friends live, so it is very convenient for us. I would caution against booking too many large parties or celebrations, as they both limited accessibility to certain public spaces in the hotel, and heightened the noise level in hallways and adjacent rooms.

So I stayed at the Duke the staff was friendly but 2 problems occurred they unhooked my car alarm and I called to speak to the manager they said they could call me back they did not call me back......and a candy was stuck in one of the robs pockets I told the staff and again they did nothing.

very comfortable and had a few extras such as waitress at the pool for snacks and lunch.

Our hotel room at the DUKE was very comfortable. The executive suite has a bath and a half. Master bath very spacious. A veranda off of the bedroom. The restaurant food was a TEN!! We would eat here often if we lived here. The breakfast buffet was delicious. We also ordered breakfast from the menu, divine. Lunch, BEST BURGER EVER! This was one of the best hotel stays ever (we travel a lot). Close proximity to everything. 1 Mile to airport

The hotel had a luxury feel to it. The entire staff was welcoming and accommodating and referred to me by name.

Hotel was nice Pool area was under contruction so couldnt use cabanas

$33 nightly parking is outrageous. Other than that, staff was friendly, rooms are very comfortable and clean. It is very close to the airport not the beach. Is within a business area so you have to drive and explore

Executive suite should be called a junior suite. The hotel does not offer double bed executive suites orbits states it does but it doesn't have that option. Bathroom was nice but very small "living room" and older furniture

The location was convenient for a party we attended. The accommodations and staff were excellent. The downside was the hotel offered valet parking only for $30.00 a day. Guest parking was $12.00 for the 1st hour and $18.00 for each successive hour. No continental breakfast was offered. Otherwise, our experience was first rate.

Comfy pillows, nice TV, wonderful view. Valet only parking seemed a little unnecessary

Beautiful hotel, rooms and pool area. Friendly helpful staff.

This was recently a Fairmont property, now a Marriott owned hotel. In an area that is mostly business offices, so not really 'walkable'. Short distance to Fashion Island and UC Irvine. Room was spacious. Pool and hot tub were fun. Fitness center was nice too. Citrus restaurant was ok for dinner (only seating was in bar).

Hotel staff were extremely rude. The concierge told my friend they would be a disgrace to the Marriott and would get her fired. All because she asked what her room number was and she had been drinking? Sounds weird but that's all she did and she had an attitude and threaten to call security because she had a bad day. Need to find more friendly hotel staff.

Nice after our 1st room check-in. The hotel could use a cleaning in the corners etc. Carpet hallways. Room carpet etc. Amber was very nice for our Friday evening hotel dinner experience Not complaining here just what I experienced and observed Food was very good and surprised. Staff was very nice at the check-in I liked the hotel

I really like this hotel. I was surprised at how nice it was. The staff is friendly, the food is pretty good, the pool is awesome, the rooms are nice and beds super comfortable. The complete turn off is the fact you cannot self park and $33 is insane for valet. I paid less in San Francisco! Both times I got my car from valet they had forgotten about me and I stood there with my 3 year old (guys, I think we know how that goes) for 5-10 minutes waiting for our car that was literally 50 feet away. The valet staff is very nice! But the service gets 2 stars.

Everything was wonderful...beginning to end. Staff was helpful.. valet to housekeeping..easy chevk in and check out
