With its premium location overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel and Spa offers the relaxed California coastal lifestyle.
“From the room renovations to the revamped meeting space to the new spa, guests will notice the difference the moment they enter the hotel. With the addition of the specialty dining room and the new front entrance and lobby, the hotel looks spectacular. We are dedicating ourselves to providing unrivalled experiences for our guests and new opportunities for our associates and the surrounding community,” says General Manager Bill Gunderson.
Guests now enter the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel and Spa through the newly designed porte cochere and experience first hand the spacious lobby, feeling like they have stepped into a brand new hotel.
The grand lobby looks out onto scenic views of the Pacific and lush landscaping, creating the perfect backdrop for lounging on comfy chaises by the hotel’s pool and whirlpool while thirsty sunbathers make use of a new poolside bar.
All of the hotel’s 532 guest rooms have been stylishly redesigned, creating private enclaves of comfort. Each room includes the newly introduced Marriott bed, with an 11-inch mattress with feather bed topper, 300-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets, sheeted duvet, six down pillows and a colorful bed scarf.
Flat screen TVs, luxurious bathrooms with glass-encased full showers, granite countertops and premium bathroom fixtures-along with wood and glass accents-create a sophisticated feel for the nautically inspired rooms.
The hotel has also added twenty luxury suites as part of its renovation, including five penthouse suites with ocean views. Two of the penthouses are 1,500 square feet Presidential Suites, each with connecting bedrooms, marble bathrooms, and plasma screen TVs.
New to the hotel is the 14,000 square-foot, world-class Pure Blu, the Spa at Newport Beach – a part of Marriott’s Revive Spa collection Complete with sixteen elegantly appointed treatment rooms, a state-of-the-art fitness center, hair and nail salon along with spa pool with outdoor cabanas, this serene oasis welcomes guests who come to enjoy exclusive spa treatments, work up a sweat in the gym or at one of the many fitness classes, glam it up in the hair salon or just relax and unwind by the lap pool.
The hotel’s signature restaurant, Sam & Harry’s, features all the specialties of a traditional steakhouse complimented with American contemporary cuisine. Set in a casually sophisticated venue, Sam & Harry’s is open daily for lunch and dinner. The indoor dining room features sweeping views of the hotel’s pool area and lushly landscaped grounds, and an outdoor terrace, complete with firepits. It lets diners enjoy the fresh ocean air while they savor the eatery’s acclaimed cuisine.
Diners also have the option of sitting down to sushi and a beverage of choice in the hotel’s alluring Lobby Lounge. Guests on the go can also grab a bite at the Starbucks, serving coffee drinks, pastries, sandwiches and salads from early morning into the evening hours. In addition, forty restaurants are within walking distance.
