Having visited the hotel on two occasions this year alone, I can honestly say that this is one of the finest hotels in Newport Beach. After spending more than $30 million on a complete remodel, the hotel now has amazing guest rooms that offer luxurious beds, high-quality linens and flat screen TVs. The hotel also offers a new Willow Stream Spa, a fully equipped fitness center and a great pool deck covered with palm trees and bright yellow cabanas with flat screen TVs and WiFi that you can reserve for the day at an affordable price. Also, at the bambu Restaurant, I enjoyed one the best Sunday Brunch that I've had in years. The entire staff is great, very friendly, capable and eager to help. I love the attention they pay to children with their toy trolley and the concierge staff was ""spot on"" with recommendations for things to do in the area. Also, the complimentary shuttle to Fashion Island, South Coast Plaza and Balboa Island was indispensable.\r
We also love the close proximity to the airport and all other local attractions.\r
When we travel to the OC, we always stay at the Fairmont Newport Beach, and I would recommend that you do the same.
Pros: Great Service, food, pool, spa
Cons: None to mention
