I stayed at the Island Hotel recently for business for three nights. The hotel is located right next to a big outdoor mall with tons of quality shopping and good restaurants, and is within a 5-minute drive (30-minute walk) to a nice beach at Corona del Mar. I had a double queen room overlooking the pool area, and it was...

Erin, I am delighted that you would stay at Island Hotel again when your travels bring you back to Newport Beach. Having recently relocated from NYC myself I appreciate the size of our rooms, and in particular the size of our bathrooms...inclusive of bathtubs in every room. Our Market Place (which we think is a little 'jewel box') allows guests...

I travel often for meetings and I stay at first class facilities since I am usually there to check the facility and recommend them to my clients. From the moment we checked into the Island Hotel, I was welcomed by the bellman by name and taken to the front desk where my keys were waiting. The lobby area is very...

LouAnn, It surely sounds like you did a lot in a short amount of time. So glad that you experienced Balboa Island and Corona del Mar...two lovely and neighboring communities.

I travel at least 3 times a month and a couple of weekends ago, I attended a meeting at this hotel. What a wonderful experience! From the arrival, to checking in, to meals, the warm hospitality that we were treated with was unparalleled! Food was wonderful, unique flavors combined with creative pairings of farm fresh vegetables and meets were fabulous!...

We booked this hotel because I was about to do the Huntington Beach half-Marathon and the location was perfect for this. It was nice: comfortable bed & pillow, great service, nice complete gym. Very quiet, close to restaurants and food shopping places.

Check in is a breeze. Staff are friendly and anxious to help. The spa is small for such a huge hotel island club is an extra but worth the money. The Oak room was wonderful. Service outstanding food was superb. Shopping a few steps from the hotel.
