We stayed for a weekend at Island Hotel and the place is beautiful. The staff was very friendly and the location is perfectly set for access to the beach and Javier's, our favorite restaurant, is right down the street.

This is a nice hotel. We enjoyed everything about it. However, I have apnea which is no joke and there are simply no outlets so I can use my machine. To those who don't have or understand the condition, I'm splitting hairs, but this is serious business and I can't let it slide. It would cost but a few dollars...

We stayed at the Island for a last minute weekend getaway and were beyond thrilled with our experience. What was supposed to be a simple hotel stay turned into much more. Thanks to the wonderful service of one of the hotel employees, who showed us around, we are now considering Island Hotel for our wedding venue! This wasn't planned by...

Good hotel but not great. Drinks are really pricey and it is not right on the beach. Convenient for shopping or dining though. Rooms are nice and comfortable. Workout room is adequate. Pool looks nice but it was raining so I did not get to use it

Travel there frequently for business. This used to be a four seasons property and the rooms and amenities are great. Staff is very attentive and if you stay enough they leave your key with the bellman and check you in. I highly recommend this hotel for either business or a family stay given proximity to Fashion Island.

We stayed for a night on our journey between Catalina Island and San Diego, and left wishing we had scheduled more time in Newport Beach just so we could spend another night at this hotel. The room was large, well appointed and impeccably clean. The staff was courteous, professional and engaging. Highly recommend.

Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Upscale and inviting. The accommodations were great. Centrally located near Fashion Island, providing several dining options. Weather was great for November, allowing for a wonderful day for hiking at Crystal Cove.

From making our reservations to departure, we found this place to have ultimate in customer service. I had the chance to speak with the G.M. It really does start with the top. His philosophy towards service is beautiful and refreshing. He has been in the industry for a long time and has brought a wealth of service orientated business practices.
