Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 15, 2013

Buyer Beware! I purchased through Priceline.com and I thought I got a good deal on a 4 star hotel, but I was sadly mistaken! When we arrived we were advised that the ONLY parking was valet. Upon check-in I was asked for my credit card. In the middle of the night they slipped a receipt under the door. It was for a valet parking charge of $28/ night! The beds were uncomfortable and I didn't sleep well. (There were two of them in spite of the fact that I had requested a king.) The one thing that we thought was a nice touch, turned out to be another rip-off! There was a bottle of Avian on the breau. We thought it was a nice amenity and we were thirsty, so we enjoyed it. When I arrived home, there was an additional $7 charge for the water! OUTRAGEOUS!

Unique Quality: Location is great . . . close to both John Wayne Airport and Balboa Island and Ferry to Catalina Island!

Directions: Close to John Wayne Airport

Fairmont Newport Beach is tailor made for business people coming in from John Wayne airport- and for the rest who desire 4 diamond hospitality. The only knock on this hotel may be that is easy to overlook the property from MacArthur Blvd.

Staff is very attentive right from the entrance.

Rates vary but are usually in the $120-$250 range, reasonably priced considering the quality amenities and area.

Unique Quality: all valet parking, 24 hour service- give a suggested tip of about $5 to a valet who park/retrieve your vehicle.

sizeable pool area and jacuzzi
spa (Amadeus)- one of O.C.'s top-rated
on-site lounge/restaurant

on-site business center- 3 main computer terminal areas in a quite handsome looking office setting. Computer access available by credit card for a mininum $3-however, a fee of about $20 is charged and then refunded after access use is finished. Viewing of air flights is free however.

walking distance to John Wayne (SNA) airport

Directions: John Wayne Airport area/ off MacArthur Blvd

Spent a long weekend in Newport Beach - felt all ammenities and staff were very nice. I would recommend this hotel to someone else, and would definitely look to stay there again if I was back in the area.

Unique Quality: Nice hotel, close to airport and less than ten minute drive to mall, restaurant row, etc
Pool - nice, has cabanas with fans and TVs inside
Hotel Bar - Live music on Fridays
Restaurant - Good breakfast, nice Sunday brunch (half price for hotel guests)
Room service and poolside dining food was really good too

It was a 5-10 minute drive to the mall and the tourist area, where all the little shops and restaurants were
