NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.—Autograph Collection Hotels, part of Marriott International, together with R.D. Olson Development opened Lido House, a Newport Beach hotel that celebrates Southern California’s coastal lifestyle. Lido House joins the brand’s portfolio of more than 140 boutique hotels.
“We are thrilled to welcome our first Autograph Collection Hotel in Newport Beach with Lido House, a seaside retreat that embodies the history and culture of the neighborhood,” says Jennifer Connell, vice president, brand marketing and management, Autograph Collection Hotels. “With ten Autograph Collection Hotels currently open in California and six more hotels slated to open in the next few years, we’re thrilled to welcome Lido House, which remains true to the brand’s promise of delivering an exactly like nothing else experience.”
Set on the site of the former City Hall, the hotel pays homage to the historic landmark through its interior design and culinary options. The 130-room resort is steps away from Lido Marina Village, Newport Beach’s marina, retail, and dining hub. With interior design led by EDG Design, Lido House merges nautical flair with Cape Cod-style architecture.
Embracing the ‘home away from home’ concept, the hotel also has five residential-style, three-level cottages, each with 1,300 square feet, including a rooftop patio, personal BBQ, and fireplace. Each of the cottages was designed by a different local designer: Grace Blu Design, Jennifer Mehditash Design, Brooke Wagner Designer, Erica Bryen Design, and Blackband Design.
“Lido House is a place that has been fully inspired by its surroundings, reminiscent of my own home on Balboa Island,” says Lido House’s developer Robert D. Olson. “This is a passion project in every sense of the word; Lido House is a place where the very best of Newport Beach comes together in one sophisticated celebration. A true partner in our community, a place for locals to come together and for visitors to discover what makes Newport Beach a must visit destination.”
The hotel’s dining options include The Mayor’s Table Pacific Pub & Kitchen, the hotel’s signature restaurant that honors the site’s City Hall roots and offers a menu of sustainable seafood and vegetable-forward fare. Topside Roof Deck serves as Lido House’s rooftop bar–the first in Newport Beach. Crew Coffee + Cremerie offers both coffee and ice cream.
The hotel also has a full-service spa, fitness facility, saltwater pool and cabanas, and 15,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor event space.
