I loved the balcony, that we could open the door. We had a "city view" which I loved, looking at the luxury car dealerships and homes, really there is no bad view in Newport Beach! The bed was very comfortable. Everything felt comfortable and spacious. The staff were all super nice and helpful. I defintiely would stay here again.

There’s only one door to come in and it’s through the front. It’s not convenient to where self parking is. They also charged me an extra $75.
