Document Description
The project consists of the construction of a three-level “family-style” hotel with up to 275 rooms over a 14.29-acre site. A portion of the rooms will consist of suites that include kitchenettes to provide amenities for families. The proposed three levels and 275 rooms are consistent with the 38.5-foot height limit and the 275-room cap set forth in the 1983 Settlement Agreement entered between the City of Newport Beach and the County of Orange. The proposed hotel would encompass approximately 1.72 acres. The Project would also include approximately 5.21 acres of surface parking uses comprised of 432 vehicular spaces for hotel guests and approximately 7.36 acres of recreational uses, landscaping, trails, other amenities and miscellaneous areas. The outdoor recreational areas and amenities include a pool, tennis courts, sand volleyball courts and a picnic area for hotel guests, which will all operate between sunrise and sunset. The Project would include a shoreline trail that will be open to hotel guests and the general public. The 201,499-square foot hotel would include approximately 178,904 square feet of hotel rooms and ancillary areas, approximately 13,000 square feet of meeting rooms, 3,190 square feet of full service hotel restaurant uses, 917-square-foot coffee shop, 1,648 square feet of spa or retail uses, 1,523 square feet of business center uses, and 2,317 square feet of fitness facilities. The project’s conceptual site plan is attached.
