Stayed here in Aug 2016. Got here, checked in, walked a few blocks for early dinner at one of the hip vegetarian/vegan Resto, then grabbed some froyo on our way back to the hotel. Our room was lovely. It was clean, spacious & comfortable. We also liked the amenities and the wonderful rainfall shower head in the bathroom. During our...

Some Cable channels didn't work, the bathtub would not drain, housekeeping knocked at 8:30am to try and clean the room, which leads to a 2-star review from me.All in all nothing special about this property.

The room was comfortable, spacious and clean, the location was great for FWY access and proximity to south coast plaza or the airport. Check-in with Alex was pleasant and easy and their lobby and restaurant area was visually appealing. Bonus was that we didn't have to pay for parking, as I had previously thought when I booked. For the down...

I booked this because the price fit my company's budget. It is well located near the John Wayne airport and a very large upscale mall. The rooms were spacious and well-decorated. The bathroom was tiny and outdated. There was a rain head shower but it was installed in such a way that it dripped on the floor. Overall, the bathroom...

The hotel is located right off the 405 freeway exit ramp. It can get noisy at night as the traffic is just moving constantly. The only time it's not noisy is when the freeway jams up and the cars and trucks move slowly through. Unfortunately, I got the room that faces the main street and it was pretty noisy most...

PRO: Enjoyed our stay here, beds were very comfortable, rooms smelled clean, unique design of the room with different elements that didn't match but felt they complimented each other. Towels were soft and bathrooms were well lighted and a nice space, no bathtub, just a walk in shower, which I loved. Appreicated the touch card to unlock the door. Didn't...
