"Big hotel with good view"
Big hotel with a pretty cool bar. Not right on the beach but pretty close to a lot of stuff in the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to shopping"
Enjoyed it. Walking distance to the mall. A little far from the beach but a nice hotel. There was construction noise from the site next to ours but the front desk warned us about it ahead of time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved it and will make reservations again in the future. The location is beautiful and the hotel staff very courteous and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Welcoming, helpful staff & pleasant enviornment"
Each staff person was friendly, helpful. Made me feel comfortable in a hotel. The room was pleasant and their restaurant for breakfast had good food and very good coffee. I was so impressed by the attitude of the staff and felt a real difference because of their attitude. The environment is very pleasant, but the people make the difference.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was great! Nothing to complain about. It was in walking distance to a bunch of restaurants and the mall.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The carpet in the room was a little old. But other than that, it's a great place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location - reasonable price but extras add up"
My wife and I have been coming here on and off over the years to celebrate our anniversary because it's not far from our home in L.A. and with Fashion Island across the street and the ocean views, it makes for a great weekend get-away. We decided to upgrade to an ocean view and were disappointed to find the "ocean view" was technically a coastal view […] as the direction was looking north and the ocean was visible miles away from room so really not much of a view. Had a great view of the golf course below though. The self parking rate is a ridiculous $21/night. It's not downtown San Francisco after all so this excessive rate was a turnoff as was the $18.99 for an in-room movie - yikes!! We had room service for breakfast which was very tasty, delivered on time, and priced at what you would expect at a hotel like this. Want wi-fi? They get you for that as well. We told the woman who checked us in that it was our anniversary and we were pleasantly surprised to find a bottle of chilled champagne and chocolate covered strawberries in our room when we returned from a trip to Fashion Island. Rose, the concierge, was very helpful in making restaurant recommendations and reservations and while we lounged in our room before dinner, another bottle and more strawberries arrived compliments of Rose - very nice touch! The staff in general were wonderful and I actually don't recall them being so friendly and accommodating in years past so I hope they keep doing what they're doing.

"Probably wouldn't stay here again."
They originally had me with 1 king when I asked for 2 queens. Eventually they found a room, but it was quite literally on the opposite end of the huge hotel, a 10-15min walk at the least. I also indicated upon check-in that it was my birthday night and they still didn't find the privy NOT to put next to a room with a newborn baby infant. So of course […] every bit of laughter or excitement spurred a noise compliant. Hardly accommodating. Also, using a credit I had the room was supposed to have been a minimal cost, under $30. But my card was still charged the full rate of the room and held for 3 days - cutting into funds for birthday celebrations that night. Again, hardly commendable. Lastly, it was supposed to be an ocean view room, yet my only view was of the back end of a golf course, huge trees and nothing else. Even my guests were adamant about calling to complain about such a horrendous, mislead "view" I've never written complaint in my life, but this scenario was enough to take the time to write. Highly likely I wont be staying here again and will steer associates clear of it as well. Thoroughly disappointed, on my birthday night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Pleasant hotel near shopping center library beach"
This was my first timr at thid hotel and I was not disappointed I had a wonderful birthdayGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was very nice. Food, breakfast and drinks were very pricey to compensate for room rate. Menu was average.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel spa at a very reasonable price"
Although not right next to beach, it is close to airport, has great pools, lovely restaurant and bar, terrific staff, very comfortable bed. The whole Fashion Island shopping mall is right next door. The hotel is surprisingly close to the beaches in the local area - very easy to access the Coast Hwy. An easy 10 minutes to Balboa peninsula area. I have […] family in the area who live right next to beach - this hotel is much nicer and a lot less expensive than hotels right on the beach which are often more run down and very costly. I will definitely stay here again. I also used the spa facilities had a wonderful massage and pedicure - the spa pool is private and relaxing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location near the beach and shopping."
Everything you want in a hotel -- still hard to swallow that you have to pay $21.00 a day for parking. It has everything one would want in a fitness centre and more. Parking was outside your door and across the street from some great shopping.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great place to stay. Staff was very personable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"my hotel of choice"
Great stay. Quiet rooms. Great location and at a reasonable price. We have stayed here before and will be back again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Amazing hotel and staff"
Breathtaking ocean views and beautiful rooms. Loved it allGenuine Expedia guest review
lots of noise from construction woke us up at 7am Saturday and Monday morning. pillows they provide are child size and super flat feather. We did get nicer pillows upon request. Location is great and staff was super friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"queen for four days"
My stay at this Marriott was wonderful. I was treated like royalty. They were very accommodating. I will recommend this hotel to anyone. A more professional and courteous service would be hard to find. Thank you for making me feel like a queen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
spa was great....pool is nice and Balboa Island and Fashion Island Mall are so close....would stay again. Prices were very reasonable!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice room- wifi extra"
The hotel was really nice and in a great location. I was double charged for parking, but they fixed it after I brought it to their attention. I was disappointed to find out that wi-fi was an additional charge- I feel that wifi should be included in the room rate. I didn't want to spend an extra $13 per day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Kids LOVED it."
My kids LOVED it. Spend hours and hours in the terrific pool. Played ping pong, tether ball, romped in the water playground. Breakfast buffet is FANTASTIC. Even make your own juices with fruits and veggies. Fire rings in the outdoor lounge at night was romantic and felt decadent. Very comfy and convenient.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was attending a three-day conference being held at a nearby hotel. Did not want to stay at the conference hotel due to price and was looking for a property to maximize frequent stay benefits. This hotel exceeded my expectations. Location was great (right across the street for Fashion Island Newport Beach) and staff was very accommodating and friendly. I […] would definitely stay here again and recommend to associates looking for lodging in Newport Beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Labor Day Wknd"
The hotel was definitely worth the money when it came down to the room and location. As for the security staff member we dealt with, he could not have been more offensive in target our party (mostly minorities). The hotel will try to tack on additional fees so be sure to check your bill for telecom and additional parking. Overall the hotel itself was […] great. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice hotel. Great staff and pretty facilities. The rooms are a bit dated, but overall it was very nice!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were going to an important dinner and we called down for towels . We had to call twice. They were finally delivered 45 minutes later with no reply to why is took so long. The next day we left our room at 9:00 a.m. and when we returned at 4:00p.m. the room had not been cleaned yet. We called down stairs and the women who answered simply said we are […] VERY busy today!! And HUNG UP on me. My husband went downstairs to report what the woman had done and the women he talked to was pleasant be did not ask his name or room number. We have been staying at The Island for the last few years(over 20 stays) and thought we would try your Hotel . Im sorry to say we will be returning to The Island next month!!!!

Great hotel great people from valet to receptionist to etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great place for Fashion Island and restaurants."
We needed an overnight trip to the Newport are for an early party the next day...so, we decided to go down a day early and visit Fashion Island to get some new clothes for school (I teach). The hotel is right across the street! Great location. Great facilities.Genuine Expedia guest review
Not a cheap 5 nights as everything was at an extra charge parking wifi. And breakfast was only for 2 people when there were 4 of us. Location was ok and the mall opposite a godsend cos there were places close by to eat. We arrived at around 6 and our room wasn't ready because they had accommodated a delayed flight but we were not even offered a complimentary […] drink whilst we waited. Hotel was clean breakfast had a good choice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice room and good service"
Our room had a beautiful view. Service was great and the room was nice as well. Only complaint I have is that it had a odd smell. I had to air out the room for a while and call front desk. They immediately came to our room and put some type of air freshener in the ventilation which helped out a lot . They asked if we wanted a different room but we declined […] because we had a beautiful view. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst hotel I ever stayed"
It's just nice in lobby. Too old inside room. The bed was uncomfortable . Bathroom was Too small for two people's . Carpet smell So bad.... I don't recommend !!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Beautiful location, friendly professional staff. Hotel was way overpriced for $250 a night. I have stayed in better Courtyards. Miniature pool and popcorn ceiling adorned a cramped room with a stiff bed and hard pillows. Was there for the 10 year anniversary and made a wrong choice in hotels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach"
The hotel was good but too expensive for what it was worth. The rooms and facilities are not as nice as I expected for the money.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was okay, but we booked the room for 4 people and all they had was a king bed and then they were going to charge us for a rollaway. This was very disappointing especially because it was 4 adults. When we told them we had booked for 4 they told us that since we booked through hotel.com we could not be guaranteed the room that we requested because […] they had already been taken by their other customers. What an uncomfortable first night that was! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Amazing view, friendly staff, nice location. Nice town, tiok the mini ferry to balboa, Great warerfront restaurants. This is the placeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great spot for the middle of Newport"
This was a great place to stay for a vacation in the OC. It's very central to everything, including restaurants, beaches, Disneyland, and obviously shopping (it's right across the street from a huge mall). There is a Whole Foods across the mall, so you can grab a quick bite if you get tired of sitting in a restaurant. The hotel itself is quite nice, […] with updated designs and friendly staff. There's a Starbucks in the hotel, but it's one of those "franchise" style ones, which means slow service and not the same Starbucks service you're used to. We stayed in the main building, which is shaped like a giant square with a courtyard in the middle of it. The courtyard is quite echo-ey, so good luck taking a nap in the middle of the day. It's quiet at night, so we didn't have trouble sleeping, but you can definitely hear what's going on outside. The other issue is parking. They charge something like $20-$25 a day (which is insane in the land of parking lots). You can avoid this by parking in the mall lot during the day and parking on the street right in front of the hotel at night. It's free from 6pm-8am and it's literally a 10 ft walk from the self parking. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not worth the money... I"
Hello. This Marriott is a big convention hotel. Its next to Fashion Island, a very swanky fun mall and it sits on the Newport Beach Country Club golf course. Beautiful views of the Pacific. Those are draws for this hotel. The service was great too, except any time you call for room service, the hotel operator or to get your car, you get an answering […] machine telling you to wait for the next operator. The waits were very long and aggravating. Not what I expect from a high end Marriott. Also, the room was not in good shape. The walls and woodwork were scuffed and the bedskirt was torn and dirty. I realize its a big covention hotel and you have to expect some of that, but for the money... don't do it. Treat yourself to The Island Hotel, around the corner. MUCH MUCH better!!!!

"Nice Hotel. Close to the beach."
We were suppose to stay at another hotel but they didn't have our reservations. So we ended up @ the Marriott. Very nice hotel. Staff were very kind, specially the lady that checked us in. Great place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"NICKEL AND DIME!"
Was very disappointed to have to pay EXTRA for parking every day $21 a day - OUTRAGEOUS! Then also for in room Internet service $12.95 a day!! The room was OK - nothing to rave about - but not having an option for a room with 2 Queen size beds - ridiculous. 2 average sized adults cannot sleep comfortably in a double sized bed. You only offer 1 King […] bed in a room. What about those with a child or 2 - they are still stuck with doubles. Unacceptable - I will not ever book this hotel again.

"Beach, shopping. restaurants!"
This is our second stay at this hotel and this time we were disappointed in Marriott not offering queen sized beds! The double's are small and very uncomfortable. The kind bed on our previous stay was wonderful. I don't understand why double beds would even be an option for a room expected to sleep 4 guests especially at a Marriott. Other than this, […] the stay was wonderful. The morning buffet brunch was so yummy and the kids loved the juice station! Great location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
