The staff were all wonderful from the moment we checked in. The room was nice and the bathroom was large with 2 sinks (loved that) and a separate shower and tub. The only complaint is that there only was one bar of soap for the whole bathroom- 2 bars, at least would have been nice and the Kleenex ran out... More

So 11 years ago, I married my best friend of 34 years. For our honeymoon/wedding night I took her to the Island Hotel, in Newport Beach Ca. We rented a Suite, on the 15th floor, the view was breathtaking but enough about my wife. The hotel is well maintained, Customer Service isn't a marketing ploy here, it is a belief,... More

This is a nice hotel, but it is across from a mall and further than walking distance to the beach. The rooms have all the amenities and the hotel is convenient to a mall with a Whole Foods, but you need to drive to get to the beach.

Dear Kimjim, While you may have found the beach further than you wish to walk, we have both traditional "pedal" bicycles as well as electric ones that you are more than welcome to utilize. We would even be delighted to take you their in our house car as well. It's just down the hill. I hope that you had an... More

Hotel staff are trained to ask this, but at the Island Hotel they follow thru!! Examples: a room change was quickly arranged (so I could go to sleep early, and people in the next room were loud), the car valet gave recommendations for a great hiking trail, the woman Vicki in the Market Place food shop recommended a fabulous new...

I was in Newport Beach for a conference. The hotel is in a great location and across the street from Fashion Island mall. My room was spacious and inviting. The bathroom was massive. The pool area is very tranquil and pretty. The staff was very accommodating and nice. I didn't get to try the restaurants. Overall, great experience.

Newport Beach is a beautiful place, with ocean and fresh air and sunshine and cleanliness. But the Island Hotel is quite the opposite. From a completely botched arrival — I waited hours for my room after it was promised, and was not even notified when it was finally ready nor were my bags brought to the room — to less than clean...

Mr. Citrin, I'm very sorry that you didn't have an experience consistent with the many guests we see each day. I was made aware of the delay in room availability upon your arrival but we thought that we had recovered and that the remainder of your stay was positive. Having read this review it is clear that we were mistaken.... More

Was in town for a conference. Very convenient location, and right across from the mall, if you are into shopping. Hotel room was maybe a touch dated, but very clean. Rooms were fair sized, with a large bathroom. Grounds are very nice, and pool area was nice at night. Was here for two nights, and was out of the hotel... More
