nice hotel, convenient to shopping & restaurants

Posted 25-Jul-2016
Pros: grounds, pool, restaurant, hotel staff, parking was easy.
Cons: room was small. Bed was lumpy.
Location: walking location to Fashion Island and convenient to Newport beaches which are 10 min away.
Room was small and beds were not up to par for a Marriott Spa Hotel. However the staff was friendly and helpful, the location was good for our needs and the pool and grounds were lovely.

Nice view of ocean

Posted 25-Jul-2016
Pros: Liked the view! The staff was great and they tried to make us feel comfortable in an awkward situation!
Cons: Would have been better if we had double beds and a bath tub instead of shower only -:( Room too small/crowded to put a roll away bed
Location: Near a golf course and Fashion Island if you like to shop and eat out!! Very difficult to drive to with all the traffic and toll roads-:(
Nice room but not able to get get double beds with ocean view.

Nice hotel at a good location

Posted 05-Jul-2016
Pros: Good location, updated furnishings. Had a Starbucks on-site, and easy access to shops over at Fashion Island.
Location: Lots of things to do in Newport Beach. Drive around to discover.
Here for a conference. Got assigned a room in the garden area. It was a lot of walking to get to the lobby and all events; especially difficult for my wife to walk in formal gown. Room had updated furnishings, but it was a bit on the small side. We easily ran into one another while getting ready. Bath layout was weird--commode occupied premium space, and seemed larger than necessary. Shower area was functional. Desk had updated electronic outlets, as did the lamps (USB charger, extra outlets). Security box was large and helpful. Thing I like most in the room was the half-moon shaped ottoman. We were too busy to think about having the busted coffee maker changed, but having one working would have been nice. We did have to pay for Internet which was free for Rewards members; I am one, but just was so busy to think about that as well. We didn't get a chance to try any of the amenities like the pools, gym, and spa. Overall, it was a nice hotel but it did seem like everything was on the pricier side.

Weekend getaway

Posted 23-Jun-2016
Pros: Fruit infused water in lobby was awesome. As well as the other refreshments. Valet and shuttle driver super awesome and helpful.
Cons: Our sink was backed up. The destination charges were bogus. Even if you didn't use them you were charged. 28 dollars just to park daily!
Location: Beach, balboa island, bike riding.
Overall enjoyed the experience. Enjoyed the free refreshments and courteous staff.

I request a walk in shower and 2 beds in my room. Expedia advised this would be provide. I arrived at the hotel and they did not have s walk in shower with 2 beds in the room. One of the people in my party had a disibility and therefore needed the walk in shower.

Birthday getaway

Posted 28-May-2016
Always a good time. Room was a little tight but since we booked through Expecia and not the Mariott site it was a bit smaller. Staff always available, room service/food was excellent.
