Nice hotel at a good price. But is near the airport but also not too far from the beach.

The Fairmont Hotel chain is known world-wide for luxurious accommodations and excellent service in top international destinations. Locally, the Fairmont Newport Beach is known for their “Liquid Arts” Series, a monthly seminar and tasting series led by world class sommeliers, mixologists and chefs. You'll get to mingle with industry professionals and, of course, sip on some of the libations featured in the seminar about. You’ll definitely work up an appetite learning about various winegrowing regions and the art of mixology practices, so put your newfound wine knowledge to good use and stay for their exceptional prix fixe food and wine pairing dinners featuring renowned wineries and speciality spirits.

This is NOT your luxurious Fairmont like Quebec or Copley Square or San Francisco, it's resort style and a bit more casual. But, you are not paying the regulator price of ~$300/room. The 5 times I have stayed here, it was between $99 and $140, so it is a great deal considering what you are paying.

I really enjoy the crab cakes, the pool/hot tub that is open til 11pm, and the new addition of the fireplace near the hot tub.

The fitness center is a bit underwhelming, but it overlooks the pool.

Great for conventions cause it's kind of isolated so your people are stuff there, in a perverse way.

Finally, it's valet ONLY and $35. I honestly am that sketch ball who walked 0.3 miles across the highway to park my car in front of Staples so the valet guys ALWAYS stare me down, but it's $35. That's a 1/3 of the hotel costs. Nope.

Although this hotel is technically in Newport Beach it is actually no where near the Ocean.
It is a business and convention hotel that is located near the airport a good 15 minutes from the Beach.
It is a 4* Resort that has big rooms,great amenities and a competent staff.
It is not too far from the South Coast Plaza if you decide to shop and the hotel car will take you gratis.

Gorgeous venue. I came here for the OC Weekly Decadence which was also the same week as my birthday. The party was held in their conference rooms which spilled outdoors as well. It was a fun party with dancing, a live band, plenty of food and alcohol. If you ever need a space to rent for a party, check out the Fairmont Newport Beach.

This is not one of those hotel that I would say to myself "Oh, I wanna try to stay here" or "Oh, great deal, let's stay here." This was just a o.k. hotel with ok. price. They do have a great outdoor area for entertainment, but that's about it. The hotel itself is a little old and a little run down~ so definitely not my taste. The parking here is also a little far from the main entrance, so if you got lots of luggage be sure you either valet park or drop off your luggage before you park yourself.

This is definitely not like The Fairmont San Francisco. First of all it is so far away from the beach. It's a 15 minute drive (20+ cab ride) to anything remotely interesting. Also the food is mediocre. It's one thing to go into a place expecting (and paying) for mediocre, but when they are charging you insane prices, mediocre becomes wretched. Also my bartender was horribly rude. He not only charged me for two 17 dollar grey goose sodas ($17 dollars really???) when the gentleman next to me got the second one, he forgot to put my mediocre crab cakes on the bill so AFTER I paid and was ready to leave, he tells me how he forgot to put it on and here is another bill. Isn't it customary if they forget something and you pay, they just let it go? One redeeming quality is that the pool area and cabanas are nice.Also they will pick you up from the airport so if you want to stay 5 minutes away from the airport, then this hotel is for you.


Although we enjoyed our trip/stay, this particular Fairmont location was a disappointment. The room itself was nice, nothing extravagant or impressive, but the 2 stars is primarily for the service. I mean, it's a Fairmont, one would expect top notch service, but they definitely came up short.
- The evening valet staff was very rude. They were very short with us as if they had better things to do, and one guy even rolled his eyes while holding the door for my bf since he was finishing up a phone call. I will say however, the day staff was a breath a fresh air, a complete 180. They were pleasant, social and always asked if we needed directions to wherever we were headed.
- The front desk staff wasn't any better. Upon checking in, we experienced more rudeness. The pkg that my bf booked included the valet fees and he kept arguing with us that this was not the case. He made no eye contact and treated us as if we were stupid "commoners". Uh, hellooo?? We're the guests here!
- The ice machine was broken on our floor so we called for ice to be sent to our room. They directed us to the ice machine one floor above us.
- Upon checking out, a family with 2 small children was checking in. I guess the little boy was sick and up-chucked his breakfast cheerios onto the lobby floor. The mom was on her hands and knees cleaning the mess while the employees just stood there leaning over the desk watching with no offer to help. I expected them to at least call housekeeping right away if not clean it up themselves and request the guest not to clean. *sigh*

The room was tidy, the king bed comfortable and bathroom pretty.
