Much better than the Ritz @ Laguna Nigel or Montage. Outstanding service
The place is awesome and we really enjoyed it The place is 5stars but the service and the employees are 0 stare
EVERYTHING was Amazing. The view, service, room service, amenities and the room was perferct We loved everything
the views and the bungalow room was great food service (both in room and at the pool lunch) was slow, inaccurate and not as expected. although the food quality was very good.
Beautiful resort! Loved our room. Food was amazing! Love the boutique on site. Front desk was great. Had an early check in. Staff overall was very slow and not to experienced when it came to bellman and room service. Every time we called for something we sat on hold for a period of time. Then when we left the resort i couldn't see out of my car windows. I had hard water spots all over my beautiful clean mercedes. The sprinklers covered my car and when i asked the valet to help with windex they looked at me like I was crazy.
Breakfast, view, accessible! Great deal for the money! Pool was kind of shabby, needed upgrade. Very difficult to get in n out of bathtub for showering!
Location was amazing and price was great. Pool, breakfast and view was our favorite. Our room was on the first floor and when we walked in we noticed it was damp in the room. Then we noticed that our room was half underground. So we figured for 1 night, with the location and price that we would just deal with it. Later that night after going out for cocktails and dinner we came back into the room to find that it was still really damp like an old basement even with the air conditioning on high for hours. After reading all the ridiculous rules and instructions about the whirlpool we got in to find out non of the controls worked so it was an all or nothing experience. Hours later in the middle of the night I awoke to the air conditioning make loud noises. In the morning I found that the carpet around the whirlpool was wet due to some kind of leak from the water closet. Also no air conditioning in the bathroom. All and all the place was very nice but they didn't offer any discount or anything for our experience. *don't stay on the first floor.
Great staff, hotel and overall experience. Very well maintained. Clean and they pay attention to the little things. The staff went out of their way to make sure our stay was great. We will defiantly be staying there again next trip without a doubt. The one thing that stood out to me immediately was the doors to the rooms.. they were structured in a way to be secure, safe and worry free when you left the room. A little pricy, but honestly you get your money's worth.
I love the location and the room. I did not like that no one informed me that paying for beach-side view would include the 7am wake up from street construction crew that was directly below me. Jackhammers going at 8am which at that point I decided to not extend my stay and check out! If I had known I would have never even stayed there in the first place!!!
The parking structure is excellent in an area that's hard to park. The location, even though it's a bit south from the action is good. The views from the room and deck are also great. The room is plenty spacious and well layed out. Would stay again. The staff is so, so. Erin was great and gave us an upgrade which we are grateful for. But other staff were not so helpful. The air conditioner is either on or off. If you set a temperature, it simply ignores it. I tried to get it fixed with no result. I was told that all air conditioners work that way. I needed some ice and finally found it on the third floor. The machine was out of order with a sign that says to use the one on the second floor. The layout is difficult to say the least. When I couldn't find it, I asked the front desk where it would be and was told that's in the garage and the entry is through the second floor. Enough said.
Location,location. Aliso Viejo beach is always our destination beach, when we go into the laguna area. Very convenient location. We were a little worried when we arrived to our front hotel room, to find it was right next to the breakfast area. It actually turned out to be a perfect location, woke up and strolled right next door to eat. Food was great! Great access into the city after breakfast. No complaints, will definitely be back.
Location, rooms. Customer service could be better, we requested an early check in which they said was not a problem, we got there around 11am their regular check in is at 4:00pm, they told us our room wasn't ready yet but it would be ready soon. 4 hours later and still wasn't, they finally call us around 3:15pm to tell us that our room was ready, so we went to check in and when we said our name they told us it was a mistake that our room wasn't ready yet! So finally we check in at 3:50 pm, I guess still an early check in right? To top it off, when we received our bill, they charged us for a wrong service for almost $100 more! I don't know if we will be back.
Hotel is directly on the beach, and I mean, at high tide, 15 feet from the surf. All rooms face the ocean. Romantic dining restaurant with views of the ocean. There are floodlights illuminating the surf so you can see the ocean while you dine. Below the restaurant is a very cool bar, also, directly on the beach. Excellent location as they say. The pool sundeck is nice and the valet service was good. pool was heated and there is a jacuzzi. The property is older and they can charge the money because of their location. You wouldn't pay this amount if the property wasn't on the beach. Byzantine design and labyrinth of hallways makes for a confusing layout and difficult to get anywhere on the property. The pool is not a resort pool and is only the size and shape of something you would encounter at any discount chain motel. There is no separation of brats from the spa and pool so peace and quiet in those areas with your honey will be difficult.
The views No air conditioning
Booked an ocean-front room. It was 1/2 level above the pool and walkway to rooms. No way you could leave the blinds open to enjoy the view without people staring in. Asked for another room and was told none available; this at 3:40 pm. There we still lots of people checking in later. I believe that because I did not book directly, I was not given priority on this and below. And, arrived at 2:00 pm and told we could not check in until 4:00 pm. We were not offered a hospitality room and found later that they had them. When we did check in, were informed that check out was by noon. So, though rented a room for a day...it was really 20 hrs. We were given a dining credit, but in no way made up for the room. And then.....there was the non-operating elevator. After staying at the hotel 20+ times in the past on business, I will not return.
You are LITERALLY on the water when the tide comes in. Awesome!
The location was great, they accommodated our request to be up high so we were able to watch the sunset from our room, staff was excellent, valet is quick and treats your car with respect Room wasn't clean, found underwear behind dresser, light was missing from one of the ceilings lights, drinks left open in the fridge and hair was left on the vanity counter.
CJ at the front desk was helpful and Friendly Rest of the staff i encountered were also great
Bottle for body wash was filthy and should have been replaced. However, staff compensated us by deducting 50% from our parking.
I would have loved the beach/waterfront location if it had not been for the overcrowded beach front and hotel. This place was extremely crowded and tourist-y, more so than any other popular beach. I did not like that our hotel check in was at 4pm. Parking was terrible and you had to pay. Right when we arrived we were stressed out about waiting for people to move in front of us, park and get into our hotel room. The room smelled like a wet dog. They gave us the wrong hotel room reservation. We over paid for a hotel room we did not get. The valet tried double charging us thinking we wouldn't notice. They also double charged us for the hotel room itself and I had to call and get it refunded. The Pacific Edge Hotel is a rip off and I believe you could have more fun and a better experience somewhere else.
The front desk staff was so sweet and accommodating...I felt like I was friends with some of them by the end of my stay. The room was cozy and summery, with a cute little kitchen area and a counter with a large mirror right outside the bathroom. The beach was right down the stairs and across the valet road from our room...so close, you could hear the ocean from our room! The Deck, one of the restaurants connected to the hotel, was perfect for beach-side lunch. Proximity to town was ideal for roaming and shopping. We rented bikes around the corner and went all over the beachside part of town on back streets! I ended up booking another night's stay because I was loving the hotel and the town so much!
We were upgraded to a beach side room which was awesome. The room had a great view. The hotels location is great. Very comfortable bed. Room was over the bar, extremely loud until bar close, which fortunately was shortly after 10pm. No parking except for valet which was ~$30/night
Near the ocean Stains all over ceiling. Bed and couch were very old and lumpy. Nowhere to lounge and be comfortable. When we checked in they laughed at me when I asked if any upgrades were available. Then they put us across from the valet stand, constantly giving us noise and chaos just outside the window. Between the bad bed and noise I never got to sleep past 9. Hot tub was yellow with urine. Kids were in it all day unattended.
Mari and Javid at the front desk were great and informative. Mari even gave my Lab a treat, which was appreciated. Ocean view room was spectacular. We'll be back! Again and again. Air conditioner too loud
Location, two pools, beach access, beach toys and chairs.,.Great staff Would be great to have some basic cruiser bikes to borrow for a ride downtown and some foamy surf boards to borrow at the beach ( in addition to boogie boards, which were awesome).
Your Front Desk staff was excellent and very pleasant. Stinky room, need to change ironing board (shakes while ironing). We called your maintenance guy I forgot what it was for. That day our other group of friends got a much better deal at one of the top hotels in your area.
Beachfront room, great service Heat(not in hotel's control), but first room we were in had A/C inadequate to cool room. Changed rooms and did much better.
Location to beach. Safe and fridge in room. Great hotel staff--very friendly. Fabulous hot breakfast--great food w fresh fruit, crispy bacon & hot coffee. Room was hot. They provided a portable ac but it didn't work & was extremely loud. After replacing it twice, the 3rd unit worked. Used ear plugs & cover our heads w pillows to get any sleep! I will never stay on 1st floor again!
Bizarrely decorated room (room had been redone recently) that made me feel like I was in medieval times. Weird. Breakfast was good and the hostess there was very friendly. IT IS SO LOUD I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT! To get to my room, I had to walk by the public men's and ladies rooms which patrons of the very loud and busy bar use. 15 people waiting in line, blocking the hallway, and at one point, someone vomited. Not pleasant.
quaint and cozy and a great location room was a bit small
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Loved the location. Also very friendly staff and included buffet breakfast was nice. Room was very small and dark. While it was clean, the carpet was old/ dingy.
every hotel staff is friendly! beach access! free parking, free breakfast small bathroom
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Great location They are doing 'renovation' so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt but the hotel just seemed 'tired' Rooms are very small. Rooftop deck is great but super crowded and we were never able to get a table in the evenings
Wonderful location near Heisler Park and walk to town, beach, restaurants. Staff was exceptionally friendly, helpful and happy. Loved being greeted so positively! Rooms were clean and luxurious - loved balcony for morning coffee. Truly wished we stayed longer.
We only stayed one night but felt so comfortable the moment we walked in. You can park right in the hotel for only $15 a day and it is just a few steps into the hotel from the parking garage! There are only 36 rooms so it feels more comfortable then a large hotel. The rooms are so cute and fit the beach vibe. The staff are very nice and helpful. They had a bunch of great amenities like, milk and cookies at the end of the night, wine hour, a fire pit down by the pool to hang out by, and coffee/yogurt & granola in the morning. We will be coming back for a longer stay!
Our stay was absolutely wonderful. The room was big and gorgeous, the pool and amenities were lovely, and the staff was very warm. The homemade milk and cookies at night and yogurt and granola in the morning sealed the deal. We missed the wine hour but I'm sure it was lovely. For a birthday getaway, this place was wonderful. We would definitely come back again! Thank you!
Helpful and friendly staff upgraded my teenage son and I to 2 queen beds (only 1 King was available online when I booked). The rooms were lovely and clean, very comfy beds. Located walking distance to beach. Great pool, hot tub, fire pit for evening/afternoon use. Had a great time. Had a downstairs room and the ceiling/floor above was very squeaky so when occupants above moved around you could hear every step...difficult to sleep through.
The room was clean and had a great view of the ocean The tub needs to be replaced. It was old and looked like it seen better days.
Awesome location, great value. The whole "surf hotel" vibe is well done. You can walk right into town along the beachfront promenade. As a added bonus, the hotel coffee is actually pretty good.
Great staff, comfortable rooms. A little noisy off of 101 but not too bad.
The staff is very friendly and accommodating The housekeeping in the room was not very good. The robe was not hung up. The bathtub and basin did not drain very well. The room was a bit noisy from people sitting out by the pool. The air conditioning was very loud and not very effective. The room had a stale air from lack of circulation.
The renovations really turned LB House into something special. Staff are great people. Location is amazing. Rooms are great. I grew up in Laguna Beach and often the hotels seem to assume that Laguna will "sell itself" and they don't have to put the effort in, but this hotel isn't like that. Nothing I don't like about LB House. Place is sweet.
Very friendly and efficient staff! No microwave in the room but the staff was able to heat something for me. I love their bed and pillows. I haven't slept that well in months! Thank you! The price of the room did not include parking. No breakfast options available besides coffee. Plus I incurred several road tolls traveling to and from the location because there was only one way to get there.
The Laguna Beach House was recently renovated by new owners, so everything was very clean, white and bright, with excellent beach décor, comfortable beds and a hip vibe. The people at the front desk were so kind and helpful, making restaurant suggestions and offering to make reservations. They even offer an umbrella, towels and chairs to take down to the beach a short 5 minute walk away. We will be back! Nothing. Stay was fantastic.
It was a WONDERFUL place. Quaint. Warm, lovely pool. Sunset view, terrific walking/running path along oceanfront. We loved the "green" mindset too. Enjoyed the ambience of the lobby: pleasant morning jazz music as they offered free Starbucks. And for the price...can't beat it all. I would have liked a heads up on the $29 a day parking fee. Most other hotels/Inns will give you that up front. The receptionist just asked if we had a car (I should have asked I guess), gave me a parking tag and it seemed easy. But we paid less in San Diego downtown to park at the Bristol where there was no parking to be had elsewhere.
The staff went above & beyond to make our stay fabulous!!
Room was very comfortable. Perfect location and beautiful views
The guy who poured our wine was great! That's a great thing to have. The staff was great too
Location. . Stuck in one of five rooms that are located on highway. All others look at ocean Gardener starting clipping bushes in front of my room at 7am Room was no better than motel 6.
Friendly staff. Great location for town, beach, and roads. Excellent breakfast en suite. Room was small. Rooms on 100 level kind of loud.
I loved the location. The staff provided chairs, umbrellas, etc. For the beach. Loved the happy hour on the roof overlooking the ocean!
The staff were very helpful; the food was delicious; and the ocean front views and beach access wonderful. Hotel was originally built in 1929 so the rooms are bit small.
Location was everything, literally right on the sand. Best part about the hotel was the restaurant. Man, where to start! First I must say, me and my girlfriend are not picky travelers. We are completely fine staying in a motel 6 if it is clean and up to par. Hotel Laguna is far from par. Every time we'd go take a shower, the faucet would randomly shoot out scalding hot water and burned my girlfriend twice. Our window was broken, so I had to hang out the window to tighten a loose screw so it would work. We had a garden/ocean view when we booked our hotel, but we looked at nothing but the parking lot all weekend. The staff member that checked us in looked completely disinterested, and couldn't even give us proper change for our receipt. Overall, don't waste your money here, like I said the best part is the restaurant, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!
location, on the beach, great bar, good breakfast the rooms need srucing up.They look tired and worn out.
Amazing location, our room had a really nice view, the room was clean, small and simply furnished but charming. The hotel is older but I still liked the historical vibe and it felt cozy and quaint. Restaurant had a fantastic view and good food, would happily stay there again. Staff was really nice, price was reasonable, especially for New Years. Could use a fridge in the room.
Location is great! One of the few "private beach" strips in SoCal with bar service on the beach. Great view and beach is swimmer friendly, especially a hundred yards to the north (kelp bed right off the hotel beach...better swimming a hundred yards north). Hotel is historic, and so are the rooms. Bathrooms are still "period" and vintage but functional. NEVER, EVER book a "village view" room. What that means is that your room is on the street side of the hotel, mere feet from a very busy street. We could hear the hoots and hollers from the bar right across the street loud and clear. And, street sweepers and trash trucks do their thing at night. AND, the hotel is NOT air conditioned so the window needs to be open if it's hot. MUCH better to pay the extra cash to be on any side other than the street/east side of the building with an ocean front or garden view.
the location is top - very central, next to the Laguna beach and the strip a not-so friendly receptionist put me up in a room facing the street, despite I asked for a quiet room. She cited that there aren't any rooms available, however, I headed out to explore the town and upon my return and later inquiry with reception (much nicer personnel now), there was a room available but at an extra charge which wasn't worthwhile.
The location is directly on the coast and smack dab on Main Beach which is fantastic. The hotel itself and rooms are ancient and have not been updated AT ALL. The hotel was rebuilt in 1930 (originally 1888). There was no air conditioning, the windows still looked original (single pane) and blocked minimal sound. We heard car alarms incessantly and the people below. The room and bathroom were tiny and old and didn't look clean...mold throughout the bathroom tile grout. The window treatment looked like something out of a horror flick...the rod was completely askew with dirty 70's style curtains. We left the hotel without staying a single night.
I left a pair of heels purposely in the trash basket because they were badly marked and 'banged up' after attending an outdoor wedding in a lemon grove in Oxnard. (I figured that by placing them in the trash it would signify that I was tossing them.) I was pleasantly surprise to receive a phone call from the front desk asking me if I had accidently left them and wanted them mailed to me at home in CT. Amazing
This place was so bad. I had to change rooms twice due to the carpets being wet. Then I was not able to get the heat on. The breakfast was so bad....just go out for breakfast.
No air conditioning. Even though it is on the beach, it was impossible to get a breeze to go through the room because there was only one window (in the bathroom) and the balcony door. Light fixtures, towel rack needs revamping. However, the price is incredible for the location and lots of restaurants, shopping and activities within walking distance.
For starters...the hotel is not as nice as it seems in their website. It is much smaller and it smells. If you are a woman I would strongly suggest to stay away from this hotel. The staff are rude and condescending. The phone, the fridge and the lock were busted and no attempts were made to fix them. The only good thing this hotel has going for it is its location. Other than that...it's just not worth it!
This hotel has become me and my wifes favorite place on earth! she and i had a wonderful time in our room the view was breath taking the tv had a dvd player and vhs which was a bonus since we had just bought movies for home there was a mini refridgerator in the room which was good for the wine it was very comfortable i loved it
There was no air conditioning so I brought a fan from home and we also used one of theirs and had them running the whole time. If you stay in a ocean view room, I think one wouldn't be disappointed. for a beach front property, we were very happy with our stay. So much in fact, my husband wanted me to book another night! I did find some things that definetely needed replacing, but I think that is just wear and tear with being on the beach. You can't beat the location, and parking is a tad tight, but we thankfully got there early, and found a spot and left the car for the entire stay! There is a free trolley that will take you into town so you will not need your car. I found the staff very helpful when I had questions. The maintenence and desk staff were VERY helpful and pleasant. The b-fast provided is something to get you through to lunch and is very much what a continential b-fast is supposed to be. Some people wrote how awful it was, but I don't think croisants would warrant that com...
Very overrated and over priced. The only thing it has going for it is that it is on the beach. Our room's shower didn't work and patio locks were broken. Both staff members were snotty and not helpful. They gave us a new room after much hassle. That room didn't have a remote for the TV and the phone did not work. Everything in the room was old and broken. Closet doors hard to use, no air conditioning.The pictures of the hotel provided online make it look very fancy. It is a typical, run down beach hotel. All it has going for it is that it is on the beautiful Laguna beach. Wont go there again!
Our experience here was not a good one. The room phone was not connected and there was not a remote for television. All the furniture was old and cheap. There was not an air-conditioner (my mistake for not checking on that). The fan for the room was very small and poorly located and therefore could not cool down the room. The bedding was just adequate. Overall, I felt this room was not worth the mopey we paid. We had to park off site because there was insufficient parking on site. I understand this is common for the beach, but the parking spaces at the off site facility were very small (and my car is not!). I will not stay here again.\n
I was very excited because my wife and I arrived at night, but the rooms need a major overhaul. We did not want to step on the carpet with our bare feet because they were so gross. I felt like I was catch a disease from the carpet and bedspread.
DO NOT STAY HERE. 2 story hotel complex, with no elevator. No air conditioning. Sure, you can open the windows for ventilation, but then everyone that walks by can see everything you're doing unless you close the really thick curtains, which don't allow in the breeze. So if you're getting ready to go out, you either lose privacy by opening the curtains, or get ready in your unventilated room. And at night, if you leave the balcony and windows open for air, you don't have a screen or anything, so technically someone could reach in or if the balcony is close to the walkway, they could walk in to your room. I'm 5 foot 1, and I practically had to duck to wash my hair in the shower (not an exaggeration). The hot water/cold water gauge didn't work, so you'd have to guess which way was which, and sometimes once you thought you got it right, it just went the complete opposite temperature mid shower. The towel rack fell when I went to pull off the towel. Staff couldn't find my confirmation at c...
I feel that they could take better care of the rooms. The gardens were beautiful. We had to request a clean bed cover for the bed. We had stains. The toilet back up a couple of times but they were quick to fix it. We had to ask for towels. There were four of us and they didn't treat us like it. We had to ask for extra everything. We had to go and get soap the second day. The maid left none. The people who ran it were very nice. No I wouldn't stay with them again
there was never more than 1 person at the front desk, and they were always backed up. rooms needed remodeling in fact they asked after 3 days if we would move to another room to accomodate a carpet man coming in. we said no. horrible housekeeping and rooms in great need of upgradin.
Our anniversary trip to Laguna was great. The Capri hotel was clean and we had the honeymoon suite with a fireplace. We had a great time, and the hotel was good. We had a great dinner in town and walked down the beach at night. Overall a great anniversary experience.
closer to the park and beach than i anticipated, and an easy walk to restaurants traffic noise is almost unbearable. otherwise, minor: garbage behind the night stand, a bulb burned out, smokers by the pool.
Great value and location. Wish there was a hot tub.
I love the location. Very close to the beach, restaurants, Ocean Ave. gas station, market. Also, I love the post card. It's a great way to remember the name and location. I sent 12 cards to my family and friends. The heated pool and fireplace was relaxing
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Pros: Amazing Location, Friendly Staff, Property Facility, Pool, Beach Access, Comfy bed and good Decor. Will come back for a stay at this place again in future. Cons: The shower DOESN'T spit out uniform hot and cold water, The pillows were very old and clumsy - can do with some new pillows.
Location! It's getting old like me.
Cleanliness Pool area Breakfast wifi Garden area was very relaxing Free car parking Free towels and beach shade Free shuttle bus in Laguna beach everywhere No safe Some staff attitude was inappropriate about returning towels, even though they were returned at the pool area, rather than reception. Very pedantic
I love being so close to the beach. The staff is super friendly and very accommodating. The rooms are a bit dated, but are clean and comfortable. The atmosphere is relaxing, and the continental breakfast is very nice.
The lobby was very clean and the staff were very friendly. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. My only negative comment would be that the carpert needed to be cleaned in the room. Everything else in the hotel was so clean that the dirty carpet in the room stood out. But this was very minor and should not deter anyone from staying here.
Could not enjoy anything because of the parking fee. Mandatory $18 parking fee for all paying guests. What a trap. There is no excuse for a scam like that.
Doubles Tree by Hilton Hotel Irvine meet all of our needs. The staff is very courteous!!!
Very friendly check in. Location for shopping and business meeting was good. Parking fees were comped after reporting an issue with our room not being cleaned during one of the days of our stay. Room had an odor. Room was not cleaned during one of the days as we were missed according to their schedule as a result of having our privacy sign on the door until about 10:00 am. When reported to the front desk, the room was cleaned and we were comped for our parking fees. Parking is $10.00 which we were fully aware of but we question why the extra charge. Our room was located right next to the elevator which we could hear continually. We did not ask for a room change but the next time we book a room that will be one of my requests to not be near an elevator.
It was clean No refrigerator or microwave
$19 charge per day for guest parking.
My first encounter was the best impression ever. I believe her name is Mika. She was outstanding and with a warm smile to boot. Very attentive to detail and she was prompt. Excellent job.
The room was great. The bed was super comfortable. Food at the restaurant was delicious and the servers were fun and friendly. Not too happy that we had to pay for overnight parking- I feel there should have been some sort of compensation for this as a guest. Perhaps free breakfast?
Very relaxing, wonderful food and brilliant staff. Did not use Spa. Pool was good. We had to move rooms as there was building work on that side of the hotel. Very surprised that they even put guests in such rooms as work started as early as 5am and we did not sleep after that time.
Very nice & comfortable rooms Wonderful staff. Very helpful & personable Nothing. All was good
We come back regularly. The hotel is well appointed and the staff is very professional. Rooms are comfortable and view to ocean side over fashion island is super. Oak Grill Room on the deck for breakfast is a treat.
Nice hotel which is close to PIMCO and Pacific Life Insurance
everything except the HOT, HOT, HOT weather. could not get hotel room cool enough in face of heat wave (25 degrees above expected temperature).
The decor was awesome A little pricy
The Hotel was truly five star, excellent staff and the rooms were great. Good location but you need a car to get anywhere in California. The Fashion Island shopping centre is next door and offers alternative dining options. This was our first visit to Newport Beach and the Hotel was a positive start to a great trip. As with most west coast hotels the parking costs do increase the cost of staying but overall this was a minor issue.
Hotel was beautiful, staff was courteous and friendly. $29/day for valet parking when no public parking was available. This added an additional 10% to the total cost of my stay. Ridiculous.
Excellent customer service. Everything was great!
Great location - right across from Fashion Island shopping center. Easy access to restaurants, movies, shopping. Staff was very courteous and friendly. This was my second stay here. I would come back.
The location was perfect close to shops, restaurant with easy access. The hotel rooms were very comfortable & roomy. The staff was excellent, exceeded any expectations. My toilet had some trouble flushing but aside from that no problems. Please do not print that for public use.
I think the valet parking fee was too high. There wasn't any options provided to self parking. You had no choice but to pay $32 parking fee.
The friendliness of the staff
Fantastic location.Great value for money.Very clean.Great pool and jacuzzis.Will definitely be back!Even a Starbucks!And a great bar.Fire pits at night.Sunset was incredible to top off a great getaway.10/10.
Marriott hotels have always been an enjoyable experience. The room, location and overall stay was very nice. The in room dining as well as pool service staff was beyond slow. The drinks by the pool had a 30 minute ticket time and I had to call in room dining 6 times before my what was supposed to be surprise order of champagne arrived. I'm in the industry as well and understand things get busy. The in room dining gave us some strawberries as an apology for the delay which was nice but th pool staff did nothing to appease everyone's clear annoyance with the slowness of service. It wouldn't deter me from returning necessarily but it does make me question the hiring process at this location. Not only was the pool staff slow, the gentleman had the personality of a shoe.
The staff is VERY sweet and helpful. Great location. Valets were SO SWEET! Extremely clean. My ONLY problem was I reserved TWO DOUBLE BEDS. I brought my 15 year old daughter and her best friend For a one night getaway. I received an am txt that our room would be ready at 4pm.. So we went to fashion island for fun lunch at Lemonade And some shopping. When we went to check in.. At 4pm.. I was told That they had over sold and our room had one king bed. In my reservation I specified THREE PEOPLE! I feel like I got bumped cuz I reserved thru kayak... Paid less. They brought up a HUGE rollaway That took up half the room. We couldn't even make room for it.. So we all 3 slept in one bed. Not the end of the world.. But I would have appreciated better communication. Beautiful hotel and we had a lot of fun.
Spa was amazing! Pay for parking and taking extra money for deposit
It was close to malls and movies. Not the best views in Newport
Not much See above
The room was very nice and modern. Valet parking efficient. The resort fee was an unnecessary and unreasonable charge. The Friday night brunch is $50 apiece and worth under $20. They served dried our turkey breast at the carving station that had to be covered in gravey. The beef chunks were very tough. Don't eat there. Bring snacks and drinks. A bottle of beer is $4.50 the resort store. Poolside service is only during summer. This is Southern California. Summer is year around.
The water slide for kids was pretty cool and the food was good, although pricy. Self parking is really far from the rooms. Plus you have to walk up a steep hill to get from the parking to your room. They don't have ramps to some of the areas. Had to carry out stroller down to the pool with the slide. The walls in rooms are really thin. Our room was next to the maid service room so pretty much the whole nights we would hear door slamming, people talking and carts being moved around. On our last night we could hear a couple arguing in the next room for like an hour. We could literally hear every word. We had two small children with us so all the noise would wake them up. Pictures on the web look nice but in real life the hotel is not even close to it. The lobby is the only nice area in the hotel.
Maybe decor needs updating
Very quiet and relaxing. The grounds are well kept, the room was very spacious. There are a lot of activities and the location of the hotel is great, you can drive to the beach in 5 minutes, fashion island is next door and Sherman's gardens are just down the road. Parking is expensive ($25/day) and the lot is a bit of a hike from the hotel depending on which room you have.
Gorgeous landscape and places to relax. Kids at adult only pool!
Pool area not cleaned up well....needs facelift badly! Bar Mitzvah at hotel was noisy at night. Expensive self-parking ($27 per day) and "resort fee" ($25 per day) adds significant cost to room.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The grounds were very nice with lots of places to sit and enjoy them. They have concerts on Friday night and they are quite loud, we were not notified they would be going on. I think that guest should be advised when they make their resevations.
Close to Newport restaurants Found used silverware outside door at 4pm checkin. At 11:30pm silverware still there. Found used eyelashes on sink at checkin. No bathtub. Disappointed stay for the $220 nite rate
The staff are very helpful and cheerful. Bar area is limited and subject to a lot of noise from families passing through or as part of a large concert crowd that can dominate the whole area at weekends. The resort is more than walking distance to most other shopping or restaurant areas or the beach. No quiet area for a drink and conversation.
Great gym and pools. Very nice outdoor setting. Parking costs additional $35/ day. Rooms are clean but feel old and cheap. They add 20% tip to the bill for any service provided...food.
Great location The rooms I experienced were tired and worn With your doorway opening underneath a stairway along with the construction taking place it is unacceptable as a resort As I waited to be moved to a different room , other guests stood in the hallway waiting to have their own room issues rectified Bellman was helpful but my request to speak to a manager was not responded to Upon check out the clerk asked me twice if I had had the breakfast ( as I was lying the first time) but not if I had enjoyed my stay and with the older noisy air conditioner it was hardly an enjoyable room At that time I asked to speak to the Manager after a few minute wait I was told he's busy right now I stayed at another nearby property for the rest of the week and will not be back and I will be sure to relay my experience
Nothing. Nasty coffee and dollar store muffins are the free breakfast. The bedding was what you would get from the goodwill. Sketchy characters loitering outside.
There is no designated breakfast area. If the hotel could expand its breakfast cuisine and provide a breakfast area, that would be beneficial.
The best thing was the location and price was desirable. The overall feel of the hotel was unclean. My children identified dirty linens immediately. My wife also recognized heavily stained linen. We chose to sleep on top on the linens and shower elsewhere. I Would not recommend this place.
when I left everything, had I known what I was booking I would have never made that mistake
Hotel looks nothing like the pictures. And the continental breakfast is a joke
Parking is easy. Was a nice place for just sleeping and showering.

Location There was no desk. It is uncomfortable to work from a raised counter. The bed could be better. The ants in the parking lot engulfed my car.
I had a small issue with the room i was in however the staff was very nice and accomadating didnt give me a hard time about changing rooms. Nice hotel great staff no complaints.
Not a thing. Very dirty outside and inside the rooms. Some non smoking rooms smelled like smoke. Ash trays just outside the doors of non smoking rooms. Mattresses stacked up by the dumpsters. It says breakfast included..instant coffee and granola bars is not breakfast
Heat didn't work. Charged $28 for parking without alerting us in advance. Room was completely standard of any hotel. Room service forgot our dressing, and the food was subpar
Rooms are very nice with 4 star amenities. mix of families, locals and travelers First night room was noisy due to being close to event space. They switched rooms for me next night with an upgrade and waved resort fee. Very professional and accommodating staff.
Our room had such a great view of the bay. It was very relaxing and quiet. We kept the balcony doors open almost the whole time! The staff was very polite and accommodating whenever we asked for anything. The first room we were put in, the shutters were broken and would not close for privacy. As soon as I called down, they had someone come up and move us 5 doors down within minutes. The staff was very polite and helpful.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating at the front desk, restaurants, housekeeping, and pool. Room was big and it was nice getting bottled water every day. Food at the restaurant (lunch) was surprisingly good and sitting outside by the bay was enjoyable. Overall, the facility was "tired" and is in need of renovations. Especially, the pool area lounges and chairs were old and stained. We prefer fitted sheets (which these were not) and carpets throughout the hotel (room, elevator, halls) need attention. We were told by one of the maintenance personnel who was in our room to fix a sliding shutter door, that the hotel was be remodeled within the next 3 months which is encouraging. Location was somewhat of a catch-22. It was nice being on the harbor but you really couldn't walk anywhere to shop or eat. Must have car if you want to go anywhere off site. Overall, we had a good time.
Great room on marina. It took over an hour to check in. Hotel did not have my Kayak reservation right and I had to spend a lot of time on the phone getting it straight. Also, make sure you get a room with a water view.
Manager on site was very rude and unfriendly ! He never apologized for his behavior nor did he offer a solution
Very clean, room with internet and service attendants were excellent. The food was very good. Ciomplement the fitness center with more options than what was available.
Breakfast excellent. Free Internet. Good location. Parts of the hotel could do with updating.
Quite for relaxation Nothing I can think off.
