We have to give high praise to staff who outshine high customer service expectations! The hotel is in transition as it changes to Marriott and there has been no drop in service and some things are better already! So well done to the following who always make our stays exceptional! At the top of the list is Bell Captain Michael...

We visited recently. We booked thinking it was a Fairmont, but changed to Duke which I really do not think made any difference. The room was a bit tired, but clean and a comfortable bed. The breakfast was really nice with lots of fresh fruit and choices. It is very expensive for parking with no choice but valet. It is...

Stayed here last fall before it became The Duke. Had a great experience. Really enjoyed the food at the restaurant - on a Saturday night they turned the restaurant into a reception area for a wedding, but we were able to get take out and eat the food in our room. Close to many Newport Beach attracts and the airport,...

1st: The location is great and close to John Wayne airport. An Uber costs $5 and the driver will rate you low since it's a very short drive. 2nd: The staff is very friendly and helpful. I you see Adrian at the reception you are in great hands and he will take care of you. 3rd:Try to get a room...

Beautiful property. A bit secluded from the main thoroughfare, but right next to the airport. Which could be good or bad depending on your preference. Not many dining options in the close vicinity. All parking was valet. Valet charge was daily and pricey. They also have at least 1 shuttle running people around which was very nice. Especially if you...

Good location close to everything including John Wayne airport and expressways, although nothing is in the immediate area. No self-park available, only valet, but quick and courteous and never waited more than a few minutes for our car. Bed was super comfortable, nice bathroom and Aveda amenities. Very pleasant 5-night stay. Will definitely stay here again next time.

I love this place. It used to be a Fairmont , but was very recently taken over by Marriott. I associate the Fairmont as being higher grade than Marriott. Don't get me wrong I love Marriott. This place is still night level luxury. Staff are so nice and professional. I have committed by business meeting there for the next 4...

All of the staff I encountered were very friendly and professional. The valet service was very quick. The room itself was very clean however the bathroom could have been cleaner. There was hair on the toilet and in the tub as well a stain on one of the towels. The bed was very comfortable and I was able to get...

Had a great weeks stay at The Duke. Staff was always helpful and accommodating, room was very nice and the bed was perfect for a great nights sleep. Room was very quiet yet across from John Wayne Airport, shuttle to airport was a great plus. Valet parking is expensive but standard in the area. Will definitely be my "go to"...

I decided to book a hotel in Newport Beach to round off a week at Disney. Seeing on a "pay before you know the hotel" site that I'd get more than a 50% discount I decided to take a chance. Total was $277 for two days at the Duke Hotel. This was far lower than other hotels I had checked....

Dear maiamackle147. We appreciate your recent stay and review. We never want a guest of ours to leave with a negative impression but I fear that is how you left my hotel. Please accept my profound apologies that you did not feel we were completely transparent in our pricing, as our honor as a hotel means too much to us...
