Cradled by the Saddleback Mountains, Courtyard by Marriott Foothill Ranch Irvine East/Lake Forest is an oasis in South Orange County. We're perfectly situated between Lake Forest and Rancho Santa Margarita in Foothill Ranch, California. Our 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. Guests of our Lake Forest area 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.
