Nice Hotel near Orange County Airport. It is not your typical Fairmont. If you are in the area on business, it is a decent place to stay, but it is definitely not a resort for a family vacation. Check in service was fine, lobby bar/restaurant was reasonable. I paid $110 for a room (directly from the Hotel), and the valet...

On a business trip in January. I am familiar with Fairmont Hotels however this one does not represent the Fairmont Hotels' standards. Very surprised. Staff still very helpful and kind however needs to be trained; especially the food & beverage outlet during breakfast. I will not stay there on my next visit

Truly an ugly suburban area......how can you make a location ugly when you have such a wonderful area around the water? Fairmont does it perfectly here and then they add insult to injury by a truly chaotic front desk and accounting department that can't figure out the simplest transactions...........NEVER stay here.........it's an extremely disappointing location.............the best thing for this property...

Nothing particularly wrong but everything seems a touch dated for the area it is in. A bit expensive for the offerings as well. No real complaint but $33 a night for parking??? $10.80 for internet each night when the internet is a need to have not a nice to have, gym is very well equipped.

The room was clean, bed was comfortable with luxury linen. It was what I would expect from a 4 star hotel. The staff however I felt was 5 star. Anything that I needed for the room, such as extra soap, was received in less than 15 minutes. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
