As a huge fan of Newport Beach, this piece of news caught our eye: The Duke Hotel Newport Beach is joining the Newport Beach market as an upscale, lifestyle hotel. Formerly the Fairmont Newport Beach, the property will undergo a multi-million-dollar renovation and convert to the Renaissance Newport Beach in early 2018.
The Duke Hotel Newport Beach will begin accepting reservations as a Marriott affiliated “White Label” hotel effective March 2017. Prior to March 2017 guests can enjoy all the benefits and royal amenities of The Duke Hotel Newport Beach by calling (949) 955-5632 for reservations.

The Duke and the coming soon, Renaissance Newport Beach, will be positioned and operated under Crescent’s Lifestyle division, “Latitudes, Lifestyles by Crescent.”
