I'm in this town often and always stay at this hotel. Business or Pleasure plenty of walking bars and restaurants. Great staff (Danna and Dani) and they always remember me and make it a point to make me feel welcome. Rooms are clean and comfortable. This hotel also has some live entertainment! Great Hotel.

Rooms were great. Breakfast could be better but the staff were excellent. This includes the reception staff at check-in. The only thing irritating was the car horn like "loud" beep sound every time the lift passed a floor.

I just have to say wow. My family and I don’t get to travel much, but when we do there always seems to be a hiccup in the road somewhere. Not here though…When we arrived, we were greeted by the most wonderful staff. Andrew and Danna are just incredible. They let us check in early, and helped us find our...

The Group reservations team was easy to work with and responsive. Our room block was exactly as requested. Once at hotel-- Clean rooms, comfortable beds, breakfast buffet was good and the staff all very friendly both at restaurant and front desk. Would stay again. Good location -- easy access to freeway.

The hotel was overall good and the stay was both comfortable and pleasant. They have decent wifi and a friendly staff. There are few shortcomings that should be kept in mind 1) The hotel restaurant does not serve lunch. They have breakfast and dinner but are closed from 12 to 5. There are good restaurants few blocks away. 2) The...

I have family that lives in Irvine and this hotel was a great location. Easy access to freeways and right near the Irvine Spectrum. The front desk staff was exceptional with their customer service and the hotel was very clean. Will definitely stay here again.

This hotel was Great! We stayed on the 4th floor and were facing "the 5" (the highway for non-Californians) and heard NO road noise. I asked the front desk and they said the windows were tripled-paned and the noise does not come through. We did not eat at the fully loaded breakfast buffet and to save money we walked across...

Hotel is new and looks very nice upon arrival. Decent parking. But our experience wasn't at all nice. While checking in and making small talk with the front desk clerk we were treated to a nice, long political rant from his right of rightwing perspective (California was "so gay" now and Orange County was "the gayest", etc.) I'm pretty laid...
