Cons: Room furniture is date.
Valet parking charges are excessive, in my opinion. I was unable to extend my stay for a fourth day and this was very inconvenient. There was a very large group at the hotel and lounges were occupied by them and guests were directed to secondary locations.

The Best Time at the Fairmont!

Posted Feb 27, 2015
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Can't think of anything...
Location: Location was perfect for our guest and close enough to the wedding venue.
We were having a wedding in Newport Beach with family and friends coming in for 2 days. We wanted a hotel that was nearby Lido Isle and that was very nice. The Fairmont Newport Beach met and exceeded our expectations. The rooms were lovely, the food very good (Onion Soup exceptional), all the staff were top notch. We all had the best time.

Location

Posted Feb 24, 2015
Pros: Very nicely kept Hotel
Cons: Hotel Parking Availability other than Valet
Location: Visiting relatives
Pros: Centrally located in the business district of Irvine Cal. The Entrance of the Hotel not necessarily easy to find on your first try. Beds are very comfortable. Rooms are larger than usual. Elevators are always available. Cons: Parking was $30.00 dollars a NIGHT. With no alternate place to park. This is not in any way presented on Expedite clarifications or price during booking. Disappointing respectfully

Our Wedding Weekend!

Posted Feb 24, 2015
Pros: Location, amenities, rooms were great. Oh, and we all ate there numerous times. The onion soup was the best.
Cons: Not anything I can think of.
Location: Our wedding was on Electra Cruises and this hotel was close enough. The only issue was all of Cal Trans and the City of Newport road work going on.
Wonderful! We had numerous family members also staying there and they were all able to get a great Expedia rate. 5 Star hotel at a none rated hotel rate.... Yeah

Nice hotel very close to the airport.

Posted Feb 23, 2015
Great value for the price. We were able to return our Hertz rental car when we arrived and use the free shuttle service to the airport in the morning. Clean, comfortable, quiet hotel.

The staff is exceptional and very attentive. They only have valet parking and they charge $30 for overnight. We had a lot of stains on the carpet and on the furniture (chair). Beds are comfortable and it is a high class room.

Excellent hotel near JWA

Posted Feb 5, 2015
The Fairmont was excellent as usual & I like it much better than the classic Fairmont in San Francisco. Everything was great. The only thing is that the restaurant prices are quite high; but so is everything in the LA area.
