Marriott hotels have always been an enjoyable experience. The room, location and overall stay was very nice. The in room dining as well as pool service staff was beyond slow. The drinks by the pool had a 30 minute ticket time and I had to call in room dining 6 times before my what was supposed to be surprise order of champagne arrived. I'm in the industry as well and understand things get busy. The in room dining gave us some strawberries as an apology for the delay which was nice but th pool staff did nothing to appease everyone's clear annoyance with the slowness of service. It wouldn't deter me from returning necessarily but it does make me question the hiring process at this location. Not only was the pool staff slow, the gentleman had the personality of a shoe.
Spa was amazing! Pay for parking and taking extra money for deposit
Fantastic location.Great value for money.Very clean.Great pool and jacuzzis.Will definitely be back!Even a Starbucks!And a great bar.Fire pits at night.Sunset was incredible to top off a great getaway.10/10.
The friendliness of the staff
It was close to malls and movies. Not the best views in Newport
The staff is VERY sweet and helpful. Great location. Valets were SO SWEET! Extremely clean. My ONLY problem was I reserved TWO DOUBLE BEDS. I brought my 15 year old daughter and her best friend For a one night getaway. I received an am txt that our room would be ready at 4pm.. So we went to fashion island for fun lunch at Lemonade And some shopping. When we went to check in.. At 4pm.. I was told That they had over sold and our room had one king bed. In my reservation I specified THREE PEOPLE! I feel like I got bumped cuz I reserved thru kayak... Paid less. They brought up a HUGE rollaway That took up half the room. We couldn't even make room for it.. So we all 3 slept in one bed. Not the end of the world.. But I would have appreciated better communication. Beautiful hotel and we had a lot of fun.
Cerca de restaurantes en NEWPORT Encontramos cubiertos en el exterior de la puerta, usados, cuando hicimos el registro a las 16:00. A las 23:30 pm aun estaban allí. Pestañas en el lavabo cuando entramos. No hay bañera. Estancia decepcionante por 220 dólares una noche
Gran gimnasio y piscinas. Muy agradable entorno al aire libre. El aparcamiento cuesta 35 dólares adicionales por día. Las habitaciones están limpias, pero se ven antiguas y baratas. Añaden 20% de propina a la factura por cualquier servicio ofrecido...la comida.
Excelentes habitaciones recién renovadas, con todos los nuevos nombramientos. El personal era muy servicial con los problemas de wifi. Me sorprendió un cargo extra ( $57), tarifa del resort y aparcamiento de pago. El precio de kayak estaba bien hasta que los impuestos y tasas adicionales que sumaron y hubo mucho descuento.
I didn't like much. My experience was horrible here. We were lied to by the staff. Due to their lies, we ended up stranded at the event we were attending. We booked this hotel specifically for the free shuttle, and even made sure of times and venue location that it would all work out. Well, it didn't and the customer service desk did NOTHING to resolve. What an awful experience! I will never stay there again!
Everything about the hotel was really really good. It is such a good value for the money. The beds were very comfortable the room was very clean and the staff was very friendly wouldn't hesitate to stay there again anytime.
I was a beautiful place to stay, clean and the staff was great. I would surely go back and stay longer for pleasure this time!!!!!
The room was very large and very comfortable. The facilities were very clean and aesthetically pleasing, although I was unable to spend much time there due to a business conference I was attending. I read good things about the restaurant, however, was unable to check it out for the same reasons. I was given the opportunity to check-in before noon and to request additional towels, both of which I selected. However, upon arrival I was told that I was unable to check-in early AND that, even if possible, it would cost an additional $40. Furthermore, I did not receive additional towels. So, my question became, why even offer these things if you're not going to provide them upon request.
Reliable excellent service and accommodations! We are always impressed with our experience at Ayres!
I'm a Pastor and I asked for a 1pm checkout due to a wedding ceremony I was performing in Huntington Beach at 4pm. Initially I was told no problem. I called on Saturday morning to confirm and my request was denied. Staff did not apologize, offer any solutions and I was very disappointed.
liked the restaurant in the courtyard There were large bugs in our bathroom -- unacceptable
Very relaxing, wonderful food and brilliant staff. Did not use Spa. Pool was good. We had to move rooms as there was building work on that side of the hotel. Very surprised that they even put guests in such rooms as work started as early as 5am and we did not sleep after that time.
Nice hotel which is close to PIMCO and Pacific Life Insurance
The decor was awesome A little pricy
everything except the HOT, HOT, HOT weather. could not get hotel room cool enough in face of heat wave (25 degrees above expected temperature).
Hotel was beautiful, staff was courteous and friendly. $29/day for valet parking when no public parking was available. This added an additional 10% to the total cost of my stay. Ridiculous.
The location was perfect close to shops, restaurant with easy access. The hotel rooms were very comfortable & roomy. The staff was excellent, exceeded any expectations. My toilet had some trouble flushing but aside from that no problems. Please do not print that for public use.
Excellent customer service. Everything was great!
Great location - right across from Fashion Island shopping center. Easy access to restaurants, movies, shopping. Staff was very courteous and friendly. This was my second stay here. I would come back.
The Hotel was truly five star, excellent staff and the rooms were great. Good location but you need a car to get anywhere in California. The Fashion Island shopping centre is next door and offers alternative dining options. This was our first visit to Newport Beach and the Hotel was a positive start to a great trip. As with most west coast hotels the parking costs do increase the cost of staying but overall this was a minor issue.
We come back regularly. The hotel is well appointed and the staff is very professional. Rooms are comfortable and view to ocean side over fashion island is super. Oak Grill Room on the deck for breakfast is a treat.
Very nice & comfortable rooms Wonderful staff. Very helpful & personable Nothing. All was good
I think the valet parking fee was too high. There wasn't any options provided to self parking. You had no choice but to pay $32 parking fee.
Nice facility, friendly staff, comfortable large room. $28 for parking in a non-enclosed lots seemed kinda high, but what can you do. A 3.5-4 star hotel at this rate you really can't complain
The large bathroom with a separate shower and bath was amazing. The bedrooms had doors separating it from the spacious living room. The bed was extremely comfortable. There were 2 TVs with a fairly good selection of channels. The hotel is located away from places to eat so ordering room service sounds great but it's extremely overpriced. Price of parking was ridiculous. Sofa bed was extremely uncomfortable and the extra blankets were scratchy.
Parking should be more clear that it is charged.. I would have rather just ubered there
Loved that the bedroom was separate from the family room, complimentary mini fridge, bath tub & stand up shower was a big plus, easy access to freeway, food & beach! Other than noise from remodeling, I love love love this location!
Newly remodeled and well kept up. Quiet, and a great view. Service at the cafe was awesome. The price I paid was a very good value.
$28 for parking a night? Like just hide it in the fee or something because it's just ridiculous. I'd guess that 95% of guests arrive with at least one car.
They charge $25 for parking and there are no other parking options.
Great room on marina. It took over an hour to check in. Hotel did not have my Kayak reservation right and I had to spend a lot of time on the phone getting it straight. Also, make sure you get a room with a water view.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating at the front desk, restaurants, housekeeping, and pool. Room was big and it was nice getting bottled water every day. Food at the restaurant (lunch) was surprisingly good and sitting outside by the bay was enjoyable. Overall, the facility was "tired" and is in need of renovations. Especially, the pool area lounges and chairs were old and stained. We prefer fitted sheets (which these were not) and carpets throughout the hotel (room, elevator, halls) need attention. We were told by one of the maintenance personnel who was in our room to fix a sliding shutter door, that the hotel was be remodeled within the next 3 months which is encouraging. Location was somewhat of a catch-22. It was nice being on the harbor but you really couldn't walk anywhere to shop or eat. Must have car if you want to go anywhere off site. Overall, we had a good time.
Our room had such a great view of the bay. It was very relaxing and quiet. We kept the balcony doors open almost the whole time! The staff was very polite and accommodating whenever we asked for anything. The first room we were put in, the shutters were broken and would not close for privacy. As soon as I called down, they had someone come up and move us 5 doors down within minutes. The staff was very polite and helpful.
Good location. They are charging you for a bottle of red wine that is in your room. They tell you as they are giving you the key that it's included in the price - well we didn't drink the wine nor did we want to pay for it. It doesn't matter that if you don't want it - you are paying for it anyway, how ridiculous!
Rooms are very nice with 4 star amenities. mix of families, locals and travelers First night room was noisy due to being close to event space. They switched rooms for me next night with an upgrade and waved resort fee. Very professional and accommodating staff.
Heat didn't work. Charged $28 for parking without alerting us in advance. Room was completely standard of any hotel. Room service forgot our dressing, and the food was subpar
Loved the market place and the Dj at the bar in the evenings!
Pool was great! Lots of space and fun games around the pool. Rooms were nice, good breakfast and fun bar/lounge
We loved our room with a view. Even though the hotel was busy with dance competition and softball teams, our room was quiet and service was great. We will definitely be back soon!
TOO LARGE THROUGHT IT WAS A BOUTIQU
I had a problem with another room being extremely loud and disruptive,, the front desk and security took care of the situation, quickly. Also, the GM comped my valet charges...still not what I expected from a hotel like this.
Comfort No room service Weird shower stall that is made so its hard to reach handles
Good hotel, excellent location. Clean and comfortable. The music in the lobby is a bit loud.
I liked the pool, room size, little market downstairs with reasonable prices, location to where I was going and the feel of the hotel. There is a mini refrigerator that you can fill up. I like the concept, instead of an overpriced minibar. The front desk was confused as to when breakfast ended. (We were told 8am which is ridiculous, but it was actually 9:30.) we missed a few days due to thinking we missed it. The carpet and little features could be updated, but for the most part it was clean. We would stay again.
Impressive, grand entry, airily quick check-in, comfortable beds, clean shower Music at the bar was so loud you couldn't hold a conversation. In addition the check-in attendant never told me details, such check-out time or that a continental breakfast was included ( I had to ask the next morning). They seemed rushed and ready for the next customer. Another issue was non-smoking on a designated non-smoking floor. I smelled smoke as I slept and saw butts on the carpet in the hallway. Lastly, breakfast was limited to toast, cold cereal, yogurt, and hard-boiled eggs.
I stayed a long weekend here with my friend and the lovely people at hotel Irvine really made us feel like welcome guests! From the complimentary bikes, to the Friday night movie on the lawn, to the friendly and delightful staff, every minute here was relaxing and stress-free. My friend has severe food allergies which the staff graciously and professionally worked arround for her. It really meant a lot to be able to enjoy my mini-vacation knowing that everything we needed was being taken care of. Thank you so much!
The grounds, the staff was friendly and helpful, bed was comfy, pool area and 24 hour marketplace were very nice. Paying for parking, odd odor on the different floors, no cold water, half-closed shower door.
The hotel is centrally located and six minutes from the airport, making it a great choice if you've an early morning departure or late night arrival. Our room was very quiet. The Marketplace was great for snacks and provided a good selection of tasty foods. The staff was friendly and the bed comfortable. The parking fee of $22-24 per night seems excessive for a suburb like Irvine which is pretty much made of concrete, shopping malls and parking lots. The sink drain didn't work properly, one of my pet peeves in a hotel in any price category and unexpected in this type of hotel.
Location, seconds away from the beach and easy exsit to freeways. cleanliness, room cleaned daily and well stocked with towels. front desk was friendly and helpful. Our room faced the beach and had a view of the marina. Compliment Breakfest had a decent spread for being free. Parking was a little tight some nights. Near the 1 FWY can get some traffic noise
Friendly Staff, Great Location, Comfortable and very clean room with well stocked bathroom and very good breakfast. Having to pay for car parking as it was stated on my original booking that guest parking was free.
Por debajo de la media en cuanto al servicio La habitación tenía un olor extraño. Pedimos cambiar mi habitación en recepción y me dijeron que no se podía. Me dijeron que tendría pagar la diferencia de precio. El servicio de limpieza de habitaciones trabajaba a las 22:00 en otras habitaciones vacías mientras estábamos tratando de dormir. El aparcamiento debería ser gratis. Seguro que hay mejores opciones. Sin duda no vuelvo.
32 dólares por noche de aparcamiento obligatorio, es ridículo. Aparte de eso, un bonito lugar.
El colchón era muy cómodo. No hay opción de aparcamiento. Servicio de aparcamiento por $32, pero a mitad de precio para vehículos híbridos.
Nothing I started my period during the night and got a little blood on the sheets and they charged my credit card $150 without even telling me for "damage" to the room. It was extremely offensive and I will never stay here again. I am NOT happy.
We live in fullerton and stayed here in Newport and loved it. The beach was great. It was detached enough to not be too close to the very loud Newport area further south. Overall great trip.
This hotel is in a perfect location and the price is unbeatable. The hotel rooms are the same rooms you'd get at a 4 star hotel without all the resort fees and 50 dollars a night to park your car. Parking here is 7 dollars in and out privileges. They have free breakfast every morning. Nothing
Proximity to beach. Stayed facing the street side and it was loud.
Quite for relaxation Nothing I can think off.
Breakfast excellent. Free Internet. Good location. Parts of the hotel could do with updating.
Very clean, room with internet and service attendants were excellent. The food was very good. Ciomplement the fitness center with more options than what was available.
Manager on site was very rude and unfriendly ! He never apologized for his behavior nor did he offer a solution
Excellent service. Staff were very helpful and friendly!
Nice area to behind the hotel to walk. Larger room size Service was somewhat lacking. I stayed 3 nights. My room was never serviced by the cleaning crew after I checked in. Mattress was very firm and not very comfortable. Hotel nickel and dimes for everything. Self parking was $22 a night. Hotel Concierge wanted to charge me an additional $20 a night when I (a solo traveller) requested a king bed upon arrival instead of two queens, even though the hotel was half empty and the published rates of the king rooms were $35 less a night than the nightly rate I had paid for my stay.
The room was clean and the staff was very friendly. I couldn't breathe. There was no air circulation. I could not sleep. When I went to check out, they could not confirm the cost and said I should check my credit card bill.
I loved that it was so close to the ocean yet felt like being in a home. The room was big and comfortable. The staff were friendly and it was nice to have breakfast in the morning, too.
Location is right in the middle of everything. Park the car and walk where you want. 3pm check seems late in the day for check. In addition our room was not even ready at 3.
I chose the Bay Shores Peninsula on a whim, and boy was that a good gamble! The place is really quaint, staff is amazingly kind and attentive, and our room was perfect. There's not a lot of space in the rooms that goes to waste, nice sized closet with small fridge and safe, bathroom clean and well appointed, they even had a little nook turned into a dressing table for us ladies, complete with plugs and a coffeemaker. Good TV plus on demand channels and a wall of DVD movies in the lobby you can borrow. The rooftop lounge area is perfect for morning coffee or evening wine. The breakfast buffet was nice, quite a few choices and good coffee to boot. Plus they make fresh cookies every day, I mean really, it's like visiting family. Parking was a little lacking because there is construction happening, but that is truly out of their control and the staff helps out with that piece as much as they can. We will definitely be back!
The Bay Shore Peninsula Hotel is probably the friendless hotel we have ever stayed at, if not #1 it's tied for #1. Extremely convenient to the beach, shopping, dozens of restaurants and whatever you might need are probably within walking distance.
Me encanta la zona y el edificio y sus alrededores.
La limpieza nunca pasó, grandes cortinas que tapan la luz Tuvimos una estancia de 5 noches y todo fue perfecto. Nada A menos que quisieran darme una noche gratis????
A sólo unos pasos del Teatro Segerstrom y al otro lado de la calle de South Coast Plaza. Bien cuidado, amable y personal bien informado. La habitación era muy cómoda y tranquila. Disfrutamos de la experiencia. No había nada que no nos gustase.
Ubicación. Starbucks dentro. Buenas prestaciones en el baño. Hubo un problema con la ropa de cama al llegar. Aparte de eso, fue una experiencia muy agradable.
Close to the mall. No clean rooms available upon arrival. It took 40min waiting in the lobby to get a room that was already reserved.
veronica was very helpful showing my wife and i the wayto the pool she went out of her way to help us when i booked breakfast buffet was included when i arrived and try to get our voucher for breakfast the desk said it was not included this added 100 more dollars to my stay so all in all it was not a great deal
The restaurant service was the worst service I have ever experienced in 35 years of travelling to the USA. The waiter at breakfast on both mornings was the worst I have had anywhere in the world.Despite complaining on the first morning the service was the same the next day
Nothing Wifi never worked although several attempts with staff to fix issue Executive lounge sub par Room sub par Parking charge per day too expensive
