Hotel is on the beach. Very nice. The street is noisy below, but it's not too bad. Spacious, comfy rooms. Very nice staff.

"A few tweaks"
The rooms were well appointed, but outside our room were two cabinets (old tv cabinets, I think) that housed stuff for the cleaning crews. Also, a table sat there all weekend. It just looked really junky. Also, the hotel boasts a walking trail...which is actually unavailable due to its erosion. So net/net, no beach walking trail. The baggage/car valets complained about the rain and how "everyone always calls all at once when it starts raining." Isn't that their job? Also, they left the interiors of the cars (seats, middle console, really wet. So the facility and spa are great, but a few tweaks are in order.

"Pros and cons"
I have stayed at the hotel twice before and always enjoyed those visits. Since my last stay, the property has apparently changed ownership, and it was decided to initiate valet parking only. This is probably my strongest negative. First of all, the hotel is charging $30/day! Ridiculous, especially since the customer has no other choice. I was able to get the fee reduced because of being a return customer and because I pointed out that most well rated hotels in Newport Beach don't charge that much, and customers have a choice to self park. Self parking was never a problem on my previous stays, and patrons should at least be given a choice. I will say that the valets were very attentive, helpful, prompt and pleasant. When we first arrived, the front desk could not find my reservation. I finally had to go out to my car to retrieve my Expedia confirmation and then they still seemed to have trouble locating the reservation. Also, my friend requested an early wake-up call on the date of departure in order to catch the Amtrac train. She did not receive the call. Fortunately. I had brought a travel clock and she used her phone to wake us in time. Finally, the drain in the bathroom sink smelled like swamp water. This is probably something that can be quickly resolved with some maintanence. I will say that this is a really beautiful property, with beautiful grounds with hammocks and patio tables/chairs to sit and relax. The pool area was very attractive & clean.
