    We booked a group of rooms here for our guests and we (bride & groom) also stayed here on our wedding night and the night before. It was the perfect location for any couple with lots of out of town guests - very close to John Wayne Airport and it's across the street from Fashion Island which means you don't have to drive anywhere!! Our guests loved it here. A big thank you to Sam Curvin for helping us organize the weekend, along with welcome drinks for our guests in the hotel bar's patio on the rehearsal day. It would also make for a stunning wedding venue most definitely!

    I checked out various hotels in South Orange County. With a short amount of time that I had for wedding planning, Amber Palmer made my life easy. Out of all the hotels I went to, I got the best service from Marriott in Newport Beach. Amber, the Senior Sales Executive, worked with me very closely with patient to find out all my needs and budget limitation. She met all my requests and made it easy, so I didn’t have to get stressed throughout the process. I highly recommend her and you will enjoy working with such a sweet person.

    In addition to Amber, I worked with Flora Nguyen. She helped me with all the details of wedding planning and she made my wedding day very relaxing and enjoyable. She is very kind and she played an important role on the day of wedding. She made our day special and relaxing.

    Overall the team in Marriott Newport Beach are super nice and I enjoyed working with every one of them. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a place to get married.

    Cheers,
    Newport Beach Marriott Hotel and Spa Team

    Tammi and her staff did a fantastic job. If you want a hassle free turn key wedding this is the place.
    We searched many hotels before choosing this venue. None of the others offered as good a package. None of the others treated us as well each time we arrived on their property.
    They have it down to a science.
