$199 - Newport Beach 4-Star Waterfront Escape w/Boat Rental

Sold out - This deal was published January 14, 2013 and sold out January 23, 2013.
By Travelzoo Staff
Walk in the footsteps of Bogart and Bacall at the glamorous Balboa Bay Club & Resort in Newport Beach. Originally opened in 1948 as a private beach club, the now AAA 4-Diamond resort "retains late '40s charm but with many modern day amenities" (Frommer's).

Why we love it

  • Nab this exclusive Travelzoo deal -- knocking nearly 60% off regular rates -- to visit ritzy Orange County in Southern California any day Jan. 20 - May 13, including weekends.
  • Retreat to a 500-square-foot upgraded guest room touting a "beachy decor of rattan furniture, plantation shutters and tropical-pattern drapes" (Fodor's). Sip the included bottle of wine and look out into the landscaped courtyard and pool area from your private veranda.
  • The hotel is ideally situated bayfront on Newport Harbor, making it the perfect spot to explore the waterways and Balboa Island on an electric Duffy Boat. This deal includes an hour’s boat ride.
  • The 15-acre property also boasts the aptly named First Cabin restaurant, reminiscent of a cruise ship, and Duke's Place, a bar named after former club member John Wayne.

The construction was an inconvenience. We should have been notified at time of booking. We appreciated the transportation services to local restaurants.

A tie---the friendly, helpful staff and the well appointed rooms.

May 09, 2014 Gil California, United States

Everything was outstanding! They took very very very good care of us! All staff and services were remarkable!

I did a survey for their manager and told him the same great news!

Mar 21, 2014 Jeff California, United States

The free upgrade to a Bay View room!

Mar 19, 2014 James California, United States

The hotel was under massive remodeling, which meant only one elevator worked. Staff was scarce. Very disappointed.
