Walk in the footsteps of Bogart and Bacall at a AAA 4-Diamond resort that "retains late '40s charm but with many modern-day amenities" (Frommer's).

  • Boasts a heated, Olympic-size outdoor pool and a waterfront restaurant serving fresh seafood

The Southern California resort is ideally situated bayfront on Newport Harbor. Spend an afternoon exploring the waterfront promenades of Balboa and Lido islands, or rent an electric Duffy Boat from the on-site marina to cruise through the waterways.

Location

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.
