great place, BUSY location
This is a very cozy and beautiful little hotel. It is almost like an large B&B. It is across the parking lot to the beach (30 feet away) and about 50 feet from the Newport pier, which means that it is in a very, VERY busy location. There are a quite few great places to eat within walking distance. You need to know, however, it is located in the most crowded portion of Newport Beach (cars, bars, restaurants, and people).
As far as proximity to the beach and quality of the beach this is the best Newport has to offer. The Hyatt Newporter is on the back bay which is beautiful by is often closed to swimmers because of pollution (I would not let my kids swim in the bay) and so is the Balboa Bay Culb and Marriott suites. BEWARE, other quality Newport Hotels (Four Seasons, Sutton Place, and Marriott Hotel & Tennis Club) are NOT on the beach.
