Stay & Play: Newport Beach Marriott Bayview
Perched on the water’s edge of the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve, Newport Beach Marriott Bayview is a “suite” escape for all types of travelers—especially families. This all-suites hotel offers plenty of living space and all of the modern-day amenities your crew will need for a fun-filled getaway. Each suite features stylish decor, plush bedding, fresh linens, sleek marble bathrooms and private balconies. Guests also have the option to upgrade to a spacious family suite that sleeps up to five or a wellness suite equipped with a Peloton bike. And while the luxury living quarters and sumptuous amenities may be enough to keep you in your room, the breathtaking bay views off the balcony will surely draw you out.
The property is surrounded by acres of natural beauty, making every inch of the grounds a picturesque spot to dwell. Head down to the outdoor pool for a dip and sweeping views of the Back Bay, or catch a famous SoCal sunset on the hotel’s outdoor patio or terrace complete with plush seating and cozy fire pits! Other amenities to take advantage of include a state-of-the-art fitness center, relaxing whirlpool spa and newly refreshed restaurant, Vista.Kitchen.Bar.
When the fam gets hungry, Vista.Kitchen.Bar offers a casual, indoor-outdoor space for a tasty American meal. Feast on breakfast favorites daily (we love the Back Bay Buffet option for $29!) or enjoy lunch or dinner offerings off the all-day menu like the ahi nachos, crispy shrimp tacos, cobb salad or California turkey burger. And when it comes to “adult” accommodations, Vista.Kitchen.Bar pulls out all the stops with an extensive selection of signature cocktails, wines and craft beers!
Fun for all awaits at the stunning Newport Beach Marriott Bayview!
Explore the Back Bay’s Trails
Whether you’re seeking some fresh air or just want to tire the kids out, the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve, also known as the “Back Bay,” is a great spot for some outdoor adventure. Lace up your hiking shoes or hop on a bike and explore the natural beauty of this serene space! Either way, a trek around the 10.5-mile Back Bay Loop is sure to yield an afternoon of relaxation.
Picnic at Bayview Park
Just a short walk from the property sits Bayview Park—a pristine spot for a leisurely afternoon picnic. Grab a meal to go from a nearby restaurant such as MOULIN, Vibe Organic Kitchen & Juice or Shirley’s Bagels and throw down a blanket on the lawn for a true picnic-in-the-park experience. As you gaze out at the beautiful Back Bay, let the kids burn some energy on the basketball court or playground!
Head to the Shore
If you really want to live like a true Newport local, we’ll tell you exactly where to go…the beach! That’s right—with miles of pristine coastline, it’s no surprise locals spend most of their days on the sand. And lucky for you, Marriott Bayview is only a short drive to the beach! But before you head for the shore, you’ll want to be fully equipped. Swing by Ray’s Rentals on the Balboa Peninsula and check out essentials like umbrellas, beach chairs, surfboards and more. Ray’s even rents out electric bikes, so you can bike the peninsula and hop from beach to beach!
Tee off at Newport Beach Golf Course
Any golfers in your crew? If so, they’ll be pleased to know that an 18-hole executive course sits just six minutes away from the property! Newport Beach Golf Course features two distinctly different 9 holes and a practice facility with a full driving range, a putting green and a chipping green. The course and practice range are illuminated at night so guests can play well into the evening!
Shop at Corona del Mar Plaza
Shop and stroll through the quaint boutiques at Corona del Mar Plaza. This seaside complex features a variety of shops, restaurants and specialty stores. Bring the kiddos along and snag a frosted treat from Sprinkles. Your fam will love spending a few hours at this hoppin’ plaza!
