When our room was unavailable at Checkin and Elesia saw our disappointment as we had only one hour to prepare for a wedding, she hunted us down on the property, found us a clean room, an upgraded us to an ocean front room. A “can do” person perfect for her job!

Newport Beach Marriott, under construction on whole front of property. Shuttle to and from parking areas about a quarter mile, most areas closed off, no restaurants, no spa, limited use. Not up to standards for Marriott especially for the cost. Construction to last another 6 months. Wish they would have notified customers of construction. John Wayne Airport is directly over head, planes at 7:am Did not have cleaning service although we asked for it at check in. Disappointed.

Hotel was very nice and close to major beach areas. Parking was very expensive (38 Self) (45 Valet) at the hotel. Pool and spa were both nice. No internet provided. Had to pay or hook up hotspot from the room.

Although the room was extremely comfortable and spotless- the décor was awfully dated. The cottage cheese on the ceilings was not what we expected when we paid about $500. Upon check-in we were told that the room (708) had a partial golf course view. There was NO VIEW of the golf course, but there was a partial ocean view that I appreciated. The room seemed quite loud throughout the night with guests' doors slamming. The noisy rooftop equipment prohibited us from leaving the sliding door open which meant no fresh air. I did LOVE the fact that we were able to check-in an hour early and my husband LOVED sitting at the pool with a cocktail for a couple of hours. Elevators were quick and efficient! Hotel staff was lovey! Hotel music in the hallways, not chill and finally, beds were super comfy and cozy! Five stars out of Ten!

Dear Amy, thank you for being our guest. We are glad your overall stay was a pleasant one and that you liked our refreshing rooms with comfortable beds. We are also happy to read an early check-in was convenient for you and your husband enjoyed spending time in our pool area. However, we are sorry for the noise you experienced from the other guests and that you felt the room needed updating. We are grateful for the feedback, and we will share these notes with the appropriate individuals for future renovations. We would love to welcome you both back soon. Sincerely, Debbie Snavely, General Manager
