Why Newport Beach
Top 5 Reasons to Hold Your Meeting in Newport Beach
You'll love our weather. Throughout the year, the Newport Beach temperatures average a comfortable 70 degrees and less than an inch of rain fall each month. Lack of turbulent weather creates peace of mind for meeting planners or unwarranted cancellations at the last minute.
We're easy to get to. Newport Beach is the only coastal OC city with direct access to John Wayne/Orange County Airport, which offers more than 250 daily nonstop flights (including new low cost carrier Virgin America) to 22 destinations in the US, is only six miles to the center of Newport Beach. Or fly into Los Angles International Airport (LAX), only an hour's drive away, or Long Beach Airport, situated midway between Los Angeles and Orange County.
New and improved hotel product. Within the last six years, each of the eight full service hotels in Newport Beach have undergone extensive renovations or sought improvements, infusing the city with a fresh new glow. More than $125 million invested in recent renovations reflects the city's commitment to improving the experience and quality of product available to the visitor.
Inspiring Offsite Venues. Beyond the 170,000 square feet of Newport meeting space available at hotels, other unique meeting venues include on-board yachts, waterfront ballrooms, seaside restaurants, golf course clubhouses and more.
Location. Location. Location. Great dining in the right location is often the magic ingredient that transforms a routine business meeting into a spectacular business event. Newport Beach's more than 300 restaurants allow you to plan memorable dinners and banquets at unique locations that range from casual to sophisticated. And the cosmopolitan locale means you can find cuisine of all kinds, the freshest seafood and locally grown organic produce.
