Duke Hotel Newport Beach

4500 MacArthur Boulevard Newport Beach, CA
Max Capacity: 550 people
The Fairmont Newport Beach is considered by many to be Orange County’s finest luxury hotel. From the moment you step into its gleaming lobby, you’ll be impressed with its dramatic look and feel, and throughout your event here you’ll experience the high level of hospitality and service the Fairmont name is known for worldwide. You’ll also appreciate the hotel’s enviable location: Set in one of Southern California’s most affluent coastal cities, it’s just a stone’s throw from John Wayne Airport, world-class shopping, a multitude of recreational activities and many local beaches. The Garden Gazebo, edged with multihued impatiens, has been designed for ceremonies. Secluded from hotel guests and protected by tall palms and ferns, it’s very private and serene. After walking through an evergreen arch, you’ll exchange vows under the ivory gazebo, which can be enhanced with floral garlands. Following the ceremony, the lovely surroundings serve as a picturesque backdrop for photography. You have numerous choices for your reception, starting with the elegant Bay Laurel Ballroom where you can dance the night away under a magnificent chandelier. The CitrusRoom is a stunning venue with high ceilings, modern lighting, and floor-to-ceiling windows lining the back wall. In the garden-like Orchid Terrace, glass sliders and ceiling fans contribute to the indoor/outdoor feel. For a quintessential Southern California party, entertain your guests in the Bamboo Garden with its fireplace, fire pit and water feature, or on the glorious Sky Palms pool deck, whose palm trees, umbrellas and cabanas set the stage for a memorable al fresco celebration. The hotel’s cozy Wine Cellar is ideal for a rehearsal dinner or farewell brunch. The Fairmont Newport Beach specializes in California cuisine, but the culinary team can customize a menu for you. Whether you’re planning a small gathering or a full-scale gala, the hotel’s wedding specialist will work with your wedding coordinator to make sure everything runs smoothly. To take full advantage of all the Fairmont has to offer, you and your wedding party may want to indulge in an array of soothing treatments in the hotel’s full-service spa, TheSpa Santé. With more than 8,000 square feet of space and an extensive menu of services, this sanctuary for body and soul provides the ultimate in urban pampering. One of California’s most upscale playgrounds, Newport Beach is not only an A-list wedding location, it’s a prime choice for a honeymoon or vacation. So why not extend your stay at this exceptional hotel—you’ll have the pleasure of prolonging your Fairmont experience and treating yourself to a wonderful getaway.

Out of the confusion of LA and into comfort, An Eventective User from Washington DC

Meeting here was fantastic. We were able to escape the hubbub of mainstream LA (which can be crowded, noisy and dirty) to a calmer oasis close to the beach. The hotel was most colleagues were able to use John Wayne airport instead of LAX, but those that did fly LAX were still able to get down to the hotel without much trouble. The Hotel's facilities were excellent. Plenty of space, excellent internet connectivity. When not meeting, there are plenty of options for relaxation. They included tennis courts on site, a pool with free cabanas, foodservice available poolside, and transportation to local shopping or the beach. Rooms were slightly dated, but still in the 4 star range, and service was excellent. Rooms on the upper floors have a great view all the way to the hills, and plenty of suites are available at a reasonable price. This was a great way to get LA connectability, but Orange County surroundings.
