Waterline at the Balboa Bay Resort is exceptional. We visited for lunch. Sitting directly next to the marina and water on their outdoor patio was a perfect way to enjoy the area of Newport Beach. Nautical in decor and casual yet sophisticated. Weather was sunny...More

It is too bad that the Marriott hasn't found a better restaurant to occupy that space. The food is mediocre and the staff is mostly foreign and distant. We literally had to flag down our server (think dive bar) to order more food/drinks etc. The...More

Our waiter was very good. My husband had the Irish breakfast, which was quite good. The black pudding was pretty tasty, but they were missing the mushrooms. I had the lobster Benedict and it was delicious, the lobster was so sweet. Coffee was good, too....More

Had breakfast at the Waterline while staying at the Marriott. Food was average for a hotel restaurant, if you need some place fast to stop for a quick meal Wouldn't go out of my way to stop here.

Quiet atmosphere in an attractive setting with windows overlooking Boston harbor. The Lobster Benedict was very good and the server was very attentive.

The service was okay, I ordered a basic salad but my friends ordered other things and said the food had no taste. Recommend going elsewhere.

We had the breakfast buffet here while staying as guests in the hotel. Service was truly outstanding! All of the servers were experienced older folks and ours was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The food was very good and the view of the dock...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
