Newport Beach Bachelor Party Help - Lodging? Bars?

A semi-impromptu bachelor party has come into my hands this weekend and the only part that is planned is a chartered fishing trip out of Newport Beach (Ca). I'm trying to figure out that best place to find a hotel for the night in the area that is a)near some nightlife and b) not too nice that we could cram a bunch of dudes into a room but c)nice enough that might have a fridge/internet. The dudes in question won't be too rowdy - there will be no drugged donkeys AFAIK.

Difficulty: I'm in Norcal and have a slow internet connection as my guide. Help me LA denizens. You're my only hope!

My favorite Bar in Newport is Muldoon's, in Newport Center, near Fashion Island.

Muldoon's is cool. And near Muldoon's, there's a Marriott, in the same shopping/entertainment area.

There's also plenty of beach-y, dive-y nightlife down on the Newport Peninsula -- Shamrock Bar, Malarky's Bar, Balboa Saloon, the Beach Ball. And of course, oh God if you're into that, there's the Goat Hill Tavern (shudder).

Newport Beach is a weird mix. Of course, there's the high class OC lifestyle places. But there's also more than enough fun dive bars.
