Newport Beach Marriott Bayview Hotel Review: Buttressed against the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve, this hotel allows guests to experience one of the area's natural wonders that oftentimes gets pushed aside in favor of the beaches and yachts that dominate the reputation of Newport Beach. The boutique-style hotel’s soothingly decorated lobby features large windows that open to a stunning vista of the Back Bay, with its network of trails and rolling hills. Each room is set up like a two-room suite, complete with a step-out balcony, and contains upscale touches such as marble bathrooms and LCD TVs. The hotel is a popular destination for business travelers, who take advantage of the combined 3,200 square feet of meeting space, as well as a fully equipped business center. When families are not lounging out by the pool, they can make their way to nearby Fashion Island for shopping, the Balboa Peninsula for beach culture and of course the Back Bay to commune with nature.
