I can only echo reviews of others who have made this the highest Tripadvisor-rated property in Newport Beach. Stayed there recently over Memorial Day weekend. Everything was good or better than I recall when I last stayed there 10 years ago. Rooms are well furnished, location is perfect for a beach weekend. Best to park the car & forget it as spaces are limited. (Staff will feed the meter if there isno hotel parking left). We walked all over Balboa Peninsula. There is an extensive DVD library for guests as well as complimentary breakfast which has a feel of eating in your own kitchen at home. Look forward to staying there again when visiting Newport.
