We returned to the Holiday Inn Irvine Spectrum for the second time this year. Once again we were very pleased with the location, amenities, and service. Since our stay was to be for an extended time, we requested a few items for the room. Within a very short time, Roberto had everything and more delivered to the room. He went...

Our water polo club stayed at this hotel last weekend. The Hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Excellent service all around. Comfortable beds and very clean rooms. Great restaurants in the area and the hotel restaurant was always a good option.

Great location for Irvine business especially the Spectrum. Rooms are nice and always as expected, covered parking if desired. I look for places with high quality services along with local amenities (restaurants etc.) that require minimal drive time and this one fits the bill.

The reason I like to stay here when in Irvine is because the location is easy to access right off the 5 and it's easy and fast to get in and out of your room when you're on a tight schedule. Beds are comfy, the rooms are generally quiet which is a major plus. There typically aren't a lot of...

This was my second stay at this hotel and I was very pleased both times. The rooms are clean, spacious, and well-appointed. The temperature control and shower water temp and pressure were great (2 of my important criteria). There is an excellent and varied breakfast buffet, and the staff is friendly and efficient. The location of the hotel is ideal...

We had a large group stay at this hotel and also used the conference room for three days for a sales workshop. The guest rooms were modern and clean as was the conference room. The conference room is on the second floor and has a patio, which is a very nice amenity for breaks and lunch time. The only real...
