This is a good hotel for business travelers. I stayed in this hotel in October 2016 and found it very clean, the staff was nice and the WIFI was adequate. The location is great - close to restaurants and shopping.

Staying two weeks per month in a dirty hotel should be enough... but if it is very next to the office you can force yourself. But if you are hungry and "the Bistro" (what a wasted French name for using the microwave!!!) should be open looking at the timetable... but emplyee is too lazy and rude for preparing a salad......

Dear colandre73, I am deeply sorry for the experience you had at our hotel. The staff is typically great about delivering Marriott service, and our housekeeping staff usually exceeds our cleanliness standards considering they take pride in our newly renovated our rooms. Apparently, we failed to deliver that experience to you. Please contact me at your earliest convenience, as I'd...

I use to sleep here when I'm on a business trip around here. They charge me 130$ per night for having an average room with a small neon light bathroom and a long but narrow double queen side bed. There's no other view than factories and a toll road. I would definitely pick something else if it was not so...

I have stayed at this particular Courtyard many times and it never disappoints. Rooms are large and well maintained, gym equipment works fine though space is limited. The spa pool is always at the perfect temperature for a post workout stretch. Breakfast has improved a lot since I was here a few months back with the egg white scramble superb....

Good location for our 100 mile Amtrak bike ride from Irvine to San Diego. Plenty roomy enough for 2 riders and their 2 bikes! Stayed at many Courtyards, first time at this one.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cradled by the Saddleback Mountains, the Courtyard Foothill Ranch Irvine East Hotel is an oasis in South Orange County. We're perfectly situated between Lake Forest and Rancho Santa Margarita. Our Foothill Ranch hotel is surrounded by many wilderness parks and yet a short drive away from the elegance of Newport Beach, Corona Del Mar and the coves, eclectic atmosphere and art galleries of Laguna Beach. Back at our hotel, experience our high-tech lobby featuring The Bistro, which serves Starbucks coffee, where you can sit and enjoy a full meal and cocktails in the evening, or grab an appetizer or something light to go. Stay connected with free Wi-Fi and our interactive GoBoard(R) technology, providing relevant, up-to-date news, weather and local information. Guests of our Lake Forest, CA hotel appreciate our smartly-designed rooms that provide the right mix of relaxation and flexible functionality. When downtime arises, soak up the California sun and relax at our outdoor pool and whirlpool. ... more   less
