I was not disappointed

I came down to Newport to celebrate my daughters birthday and as her present we spent the day in the hotels spa. It was wonderful. We each had 3 treatments with a light lunch brought to us in the comfort room. The spa was very clean with the relaxing smell of Eucalyptus. I think though that if the hotel had been busy and the spa was running full then that very small comfort room would have been jammed full and not so comfortable. The staff throughout the hotel and in the spa were so exceptionaly nice,friendly and very courteous. The rooms were large,roomy and tastefuly decorated Large flat screen tv's with Bose speaker systems were a really nice treat. The beds with their fluffy comforters,soft linens and fabulous mattresses made me feel like I was sleeping in a cloud. I felt right at home. The bathrooms large enough to comfortably move around. I would definitley stay there again! It met my comfort standards.

Unbeatable location for the price

Great rooms and good service. It is obvious when you get in the rooms that this hotel was once a four seasons. Would definitely go back again. Right across from fashion island shopping and dining. Just up the hill from PCH and beaches. Have paid 300-400 for the same room elsewhere. We paid 169 a night here.

Fantastic getaway

Was told they had HDMI hook up for PS3, it was actually confirmed from Tech support of the hotel. In actuality they did not. Was a disappointment and a waste of time.

Short Honeymoon Escape

Close to the coast and abundant restaurants with easy access and very lite traffic around the hotel. Definitley four star material with clean rooms that don't smell. All the employees greeted you and treated you with respect and a smile. We were quite pleased (FYI - No coffee pot in room)
