The Hyatt Regency Newport Beach remodeled this 1961 property a few years ago, and they did a wonderful job. Rooms are updated, bathrooms are sleek and modern (with Toto toilets - the best!), and the grounds well maintained with a mature feel (trees large, beautiful landscaping). Banquet food was wonderful (breakfast the best), and the staff were absolutely great ... attentive, caring, efficient, and you can tell they love their job and truly cared about our well-being and happiness. I would recommend this to anyone planning a meeting (superb meeting accommodations) or a romantic getaway (get a balcony room). I will return and bring hubby next time.
