For more than a century, Newport Beach has drawn visitors for sun, surf, sand and sailing, as well for its world-class dining and shopping. But with so much to do in more than one day, you'll at least need to stretch your stay to a weekend…if not longer. Which means you'll need a hotel.

You're in luck. With 14 luxurious hotels and eight boutique inns awaiting your arrival, Newport Beach offers lodging for any budget or taste, from the luxurious to the laid-back. Read on for our hotel and resort guide.

Fairmont Newport Beach: With over 400 luxury appointed rooms and suites, this modern gem epitomizes grandeur and is perfect for families and couples alike. Relax under a palm at the outdoor pool or hit the 8,000 square foot spa. That is, if you can tear yourself from the over-sized socking tub in your room.

Hyatt Regency Newport Beach: Centrally located between retail destination Fashion Island and Balboa Island (just a quick ferry ride away), the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach was just renovated to the tune of $15 million. Enjoy three unique pool environments, a nine hole golf course and al fresco dining at SHOR American Seafood Grill, not to mention close proximity to Newport Beach's 10 miles of scenic coastline.
