This Courtyard is a solid hotel for business travel. The staff is very courteous and helpful. The location is great! There are hiking trails accessible from the parking lot. Also in the parking lot many good options for food.

We had 3 rooms at the hotel last weekend for a wedding event in the area. The hotel staff were all welcoming and efficient in getting us registered. Our rooms were nice, very clean and comfortable. We got back to the hotel late in the evening and although there are a couple of restaurants within walking distance we decided to...

The lobby is unique. It has several areas where individuals can sit and talk or where a larger group can gather. The food (and Starbucks coffee) provided by the restaurant is very good and convenient. Front desk folks were friendly and helpful. We requested a room on the top floor away from the elevator and were pleased with the quality...

This pleasant and well-kept Hotel is perfect for the business traveler ... This is not a five star hotel but it is a strong four-star. It is neat and clean with the friendly staff. Parking in the area is safe and secure. Breakfast is typical and that's fine. You will have no trouble at this fine hotel.

The front desk staff was very welcoming! Every time I came/went I was treated with a warm welcome. Lobby is nicely renovated and cafe was perfect. The only room for improvement were the guest rooms. They are in need of renovation. The hall was also musty. Location was very convenient to restaurants/shopping/highway.

The exterior and the lobby of this hotel looked like a typical Courtyard - but, the rooms were rather bland. Nothing special about the decor at all. The furniture was not attractive, and the dresser drawers in my room were all broken. The bathroom was a disappointment, as well - old tub with a hot/cold water mix that was variable/unpredictable....

This is obviously a corporate hotel during the week, we were there at a weekend and the hotel had everything that we needed. The service is great and friendly, the bar/grill serves breakfast (lunch during the week) and dinner food, but nothing that substantial. The coffee is also great, Starbucks! The rooms are spacious and well designed, nothing spectacular but...

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
