Gorgeous, high end hotel with all the amenities you would expect, situated next to Fashion Island. Clean, well appointed and spacious suites. The staff excel at customer service. There is live music depending on the night by the pool. Excellent choice if you are staying in OC.

Definitely a high end hotel, thought the rooms are pretty ordinary. Full array of amenities, nice (pricey) restaurant - the Oak Grill. Good location - right across from the Fashion Island mall. Service was good. Just be aware that the taxes and destination fees will add $50 or more to the bill, and there's only valet parking ($35 a day)....

We have been coming for years to Newport Beach when we travel through California and always make it a point of staying at the Island Hotel and just love the place. It's convenient if you're looking to go shopping, 5 minute walk to Fashion Island. The rooms are very nicely appointed, very nicely decorated, spacious and fully equipped. Ask for...

I recently spend 3 nights at this hotel for the fourth consecutive year. The previous 3 were enough to bring me back, but this was even better. I had a one bedroom suite with 2 large balconies, free valet parking, $50 per day credit to spend on the property--- all for about 60% of the cost of the modest room...

My wife and I spent the weekend at the Island Hotel to celebrate her birthday. From the moment we arrived we were treated like VIP's by everyone. Beautiful room with a view, evenings on the fireside patio listening to music having delicious cocktails and appetites.

Terrible experience with the Island Hotel. Have been booked for a few weeks and upon arrival they did not have a room for me. Manager was nice about it and arranged for a room across town. However, a pretty miserable end to a long day traveling and made a short night sleep even shorter with an unwelcome commute to and...

Mr. C, I can't express how sorry I am that we were oversold on the evening of your arrival. And while our sister property, the Resort at Pelican Hill is a fabulous resort I appreciate that it was late and that you needed to return for a meeting early the next morning. I further recognize that putting you in our...

I stayed at this property with my fiancé during his business trip. We didn't know much about the hotel prior to arrival but since I work in the hotel industry I love trying new hotels as research :) Our room was very spacious, and I was thrilled to see such a large bathroom! How rare that is nowadays! It appeared...

Comfortable hotel with great staff... We got a Coastal Corner suite and the room is spacious with 2 balconies. The location is great. Walking distance to fashion Island and the views are wonderful. It does get loud on Friday nights due to night life at the bar and the pool area. But overall great experience. Will definitely recommend this place...

As I check into this hotel, I felt the staff treated me like the only person on a Island. They met every aspect of my needs. Great staff to valet to housekeeping. The service was one of the best I have ever seen. I hosted a reception later that week and the staff met all of my customers needs. The...
