We were just across the freeway from South Coast Plaza, the Orange County Performing Arts Center, and it's a short drive from John Wayne Airport. The front desk staff and the...

Staff was friendly, restaurant was good. However you'd better be 5'6" or less if you'd like to take a shower. I'm 5'8" and the trendy "rain" shower head sits too low for me. Also, good luck getting your devices to charge via the desktop plugs. Finally, at least on the first floor, the internet is unusable. I couldn't even check...

The locations of this hotel was perfect for what we wanted to do and where we wanted to go. The room was just "OK".., not great. The hotel is old and the furniture, carpet, bath and walls of the rooms show it...!! The lobby, restaurant and other common areas were nice.

This is my second time to stay in this hotel. They gave me a room facing back which was very good for me to have a quiet place for good sleep. The location is very convenient to get around. There's also free shuttle available for nearby activities including SNA airport.
