Reviews for Fairmont Newport Beach
I decided to book a hotel in Newport Beach to round off a week at Disney. Seeing on a "pay before you know the hotel" site that I'd get more than a 50% discount I decided to take a chance. Total was $277 for two days at the Duke Hotel. This was far lower than other hotels I had checked. However, while the Duke Hotel is technically in Newport Beach, its location is deceptive as it's just a mile from the airport in a business park district. It was a five mile drive to any beach or tourist location. The hotel itself is nice, the rooms feel a touch dated, but overall ok. However I was disappointed when I discovered they only have two full sized beds (when every other hotel has two queen beds). Since that was not doable it was $120 to upgrade to a king/sofabed room. The sofa bed was horribly uncomfortable! Then valet parking is MANDATORY at $33 a night (plus tips) so $66 total. $186 added to my "discount" rate of $277 made this subpar room just as expensive as other nicer hotels. This hotel was sold from Fairmont to Marriott and I noticed a sign saying that Crescent Hotels are buying them soon so buyer beware. If you are a business traveler going solo without a car this hotel is fine, but if you are a family I'd go elsewhere as you can get a better hotel at the same price with even breakfast included.

I thought it was better than the reviews so far. I might chalk that up to opening jitters. It used to be the Fairmont, then recently changed to the Duke, then few weeks after that became a Marriott property. The hotel itself is in a great location, really close to the airport. Don't be deceived by the address. It does not feel like "Newport Beach." It feels like John Wayne Airport (Santa Ana). The hotel itself is pretty nice, it does show it's age in certain areas. The lobby and the rooms seem to have been recently renovated but the wood trim in the elevators show a lot of dings and scratches. The rooms are nice and roomey. The free wifi was super fast, it was going >30mbs down and 10mbs up, but I heard it might not be free for long. They do nickel and dime you for valet parking. $33/day (or somewhere in the 30s). You have no other option. The service is a bit lacking, not many smiles at the front desk, but they were competent so I won't complain too much. I only looked at the pool from up high but the pool area looks like a highlight here. The workout room was decent enough. Would stay here again if the price is right. There were some deals to be had... I'm guessing because of the recent opening, rocky start with bad rep, and likely vacancies.

The hotel had spacy and great rooms and comfortable beds. It was situated close to 405 freeway and very close to John Wayne airport. So it was easily accessible by car. The valet parking was mandatory and was a surprise to me as well as an extra costs. Everything else was fine.

We made late reservations on a Friday evening, I was surprised at the low rate for a Newport area hotel, expecting it to be at least $40 higher. I was unfamiliar with the property, but figured that since it was near the airport, it could be noisy. We never hear a plane. We were checked in rather quickly, even with 5 others ahead of us and 2 front desk people working. We were upgraded to a top floor room, so right off, we felt pretty good. We decided to eat on property, as it was late, and didn't want to search around for another restaurant. We are GLAD we did. The restuarant on property Citrus was EXCELLENT. Ahi tuna, a large portion and my scallops/shrimp were PERFECT. Our server was very nice, efficient and knew the menu well and made recommendations. We LOVED the restaurant and would make it a destination point. The rooms were smaller, hotel king was very comfortable and we slept well. I would recomment they change the shower head to get the best possible water pressure, but the Aveda amenities were a nice touch. We came here on a spur of the moment, and will come back on purpose next time. We didn't have breakfast, which seemed a bit high priced, in comparison to dinner. Not far from the South Coast Plaza, with finer dining, and of course, an easy drive to the coast.

Overall wonderful experience. High quality hotel. Well appointed room. Breakfast was delicious and healthy - organic options and unique choices like fig walnut French toast, mango juice - pure deliciousness. Excellent work out room with large windows and view of calming pool area. Just wish there had been other options besides valet parking for $33. Great staff. Would definitely stay again!
