Everyone there was great and helpful, so why the average rating? Well, first of all, I was there for a grueling conference and the food there is really pretty bad. One evening I was so burned out I really would have loved to just lounge and order room service, but I take exception to a hotel telling me at every... More

Returning to Westin South Coast for long weekend stay in early October. Since I’ve been here before, I knew generally what to expect and as a Platinum Starwood member, I email the hotel in advance to see about an early check in and upgraded room. I was very happy that they were able to give me both. The hotel is... More

This hotel is nice for its location but lacks from the other Westin's I have been to. Perhaps its the big entry or something but it did not strike me as an SPG level 5 hotel. The elevators seem old and the hallways are dated. Overall is a good hotel but not fancy.

Average. That's the best word that I can descibe this slowly aging hotel. The gal at check in was very good and polite. We were able to get our room at 11 am. Valet had very good service. But the rooms were just what you would expect at an aging Westin. Yes, of course they have been remodeled, but the... More

Definitely my favourite Westin! Great facilities and the rooms are well appointed and spacious. The ambiance is modern yet warm. Close to chopping and 10 minutes from the ocean. Staff are outstanding!

This is a beautiful hotel. Very clean, with comfortable beds and bedding. It is an easy walk to South Coast Plaza because there is a walk way over the freeway. I would definitely stay here again when I am in the area.

stayed here from out of town for 2 nights, for a wedding. Both wedding and reception where in the hotel. Food at the reception was excellent. Staff was very friendly and helpful. As always the beds are comfortable, and rooms are clean. You can never go wrong with a Westin.
