Absolutely lovely hotel and staff. Close to mall/shops and very safe area. Gym not so great but have access to local gym. Free shuttle service everywhere. Very nice rooms, very contemporary feel. Lots of people stay here. Highly recommend

The rooms and beds are comfortable. The pool, spa and exercise room are very attractive. The breakfast buffet is very good. Staff are friendly and helpful and it's easy to get to, from several freeways. We stay there every year and will continue. My only criticism is the cabinet with the safe, closet and coffee machine is awkward. You have...

Michael was so helpful at booking that I felt compelled to thank him personally when I checked in. I travel often and seldom experience the professionalism and work ethic that he displayed. My stay was comfortable and I was pleasantly surprised by the level of customer service from the front desk to housekeeping. This hotel is definitely on my return...

The Hotel staff was wonderful! The Hotel was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The location is close to the airport and the Hotel povides a shuttle service.

The location of this hotel in ideal in Orange County and it's almost in the heart of Southern California. It's close to John Wayne Airport and sits at the one corner of the 405 and 55 freeways. This is my third stay at this hotel and aside from the location, I liked the fact that there is plenty of parking...

My son and I were made very welcome when we arrived. The rooms were clean, tidy and spacious. There was a free shuttle within 5 miles of the hotel. This was great for transfer from the airport and also to Costa Mesa Plaza. Michael was very helpful. Went out of his way to help. I would definitely stay here on...

When travelling for business, sometimes arriving late at the hotel, it's nice to find a comfortable restaurant open late, even offering a late-night "happy hour" with specials created by an in-house chef. The pool, free shuttle, and comfortable nicely-designed rooms make this a great place to stay when visiting Orange County.

We were at the CP OC for 10 days while visiting family and friends. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The staff was outstanding. The only downside was the buffet breakfast was pretty average. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at the CP OC again on our next visit.
