Stay & Play: Hyatt Regency John Wayne Airport Newport Beach

July 22, 2021


Spend your PTO in the center of it all! The recently renovated Hyatt Regency John Wayne Airport Newport Beach offers chic accommodations for those looking to go, go, go! This 343-room hotel reopened its doors in 2019, sporting a sleek redesign that won the hearts of locals and guests. The revived property now features polished interiors, new indoor-outdoor meeting and event spaces and contemporary guest rooms with Italian marble bathrooms, step-out balconies and 65-inch Smart TVs. In other words, sumptuous is an understatement.

This pristine property is great for families, couples and those traveling for business, with truly a little something for everyone. Take a dip in the heated outdoor pool surrounded by swaying palms or get in a morning sweat sesh at the state-of-the-art fitness center, which features Precor equipment and an adjacent yoga and stretching room. If you’re looking to buckle down and get some work done, the 24-hour business center has everything you’ll need, from computers and printers to faxing and copying services. And when the mood for food (or cocktails) strikes, head over to the property’s signature restaurant, WAVE, for fresh California cuisine, featuring dishes with locally sourced ingredients like Baja Poke, Seared Skuna Bay Salmon, Braised Short Rib and more.

The Hyatt Regency John Wayne Airport Newport Beach may have it all when it comes to on-site amenities, but the real attraction of this revitalized property is its central location. Situated midway between Los Angeles and San Diego, in the heart of beautiful Newport Beach, this destination is the perfect base for your SoCal adventures!
