This hotel is just off the freeway, but the noise level is low and the service is excellent. Booked this hotel last minute when my travel plans changed, and was greeted warmly and found the hotel to be updated, clean, and very customer focused. Had a great night's sleep and found it to be an excellent value.

Stayed here for a period while my house was being remodeled, it is in a great location. Close proximity to the 5 freeway, near Irvine and a quick drive to Laguna Beach. The staff is helpful and courteous, I had an exceptional experience with a gentleman named Roberto at the front desk so I believe it's a manager. He was...

We returned to the Holiday Inn Irvine Spectrum for the second time this year. Once again we were very pleased with the location, amenities, and service. Since our stay was to be for an extended time, we requested a few items for the room. Within a very short time, Roberto had everything and more delivered to the room. He went...

Great location for Irvine business especially the Spectrum. Rooms are nice and always as expected, covered parking if desired. I look for places with high quality services along with local amenities (restaurants etc.) that require minimal drive time and this one fits the bill.

The reason I like to stay here when in Irvine is because the location is easy to access right off the 5 and it's easy and fast to get in and out of your room when you're on a tight schedule. Beds are comfy, the rooms are generally quiet which is a major plus. There typically aren't a lot of...

This was my second stay at this hotel and I was very pleased both times. The rooms are clean, spacious, and well-appointed. The temperature control and shower water temp and pressure were great (2 of my important criteria). There is an excellent and varied breakfast buffet, and the staff is friendly and efficient. The location of the hotel is ideal...
