Balboa Bay Resort

1221 W. Coast Hwy., Newport Beach, California, 92663, USA

Sharing the same frontage as the private Balboa Bay Club that long ago hosted Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, and the Reagans, this watefront resort has one of the best bay views around. A+O is the resort's lively gastropub that opens to sea breezes, part of a renovation that gave the lobby a fresh, contemporary look and added a coffee bar. The more formal restaurant and bar, Waterline, retains a classic nautical vibe. The spacious rooms, some with bay or courtyard views, have a refined look with white lacquer furniture accented by dark woods. Rent an electric boat or stand-up paddleboard from the resort's private marina.
