Costa Mesa Marriott's bed and bedding was absolutely heavenly. I'm not one to take naps, but I decided to lay down for a second and just melted. A+ for their bedding and mattress!

The front desk however is another story. The woman who checked me in was not what one would expect from a Marriott Suites. I did not feel any sincerity or warmth. It was the typical "Hello, last name?"

Loved the bed and the room. Please improve your customer service.

Service at the Marriott was of a high standard. Staff were extremely helpful and obliging. Location is central to the theatre district and to South Coast Plaza. Safe environment, and walking to these locations is a pleasurely stroll.

Rooms could use a little sprucing up (pillows were more along the lines of a Fairfield than a Marriott), but the customer service was solid. Front desk staff was among the best I have dealt with in a while.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights after getting a terrific deal on Priceline. The hotel is very conveniently located to shopping--within walking distance of South Coast Plaza--though not to the beach, which is about a 15-minute drive away. We had a very spacious, well-decorated suite with a king and sofabed, with nice views of the surrounding area. Although the hotel charges for parking, since we were there on a weekend we were able to park for free nearby. The exercise center was very good and kept at a nice, cool temperature. We also appreciated the coin laundry, though the dryer wrecked one of my shirts (perhaps because I'd crammed so many clothes in). The only thing we didn't like about this hotel was that it charged for Internet, so we didn't use it. Other than that, highly recommended, especially if you get a great deal on the room at Priceline.

I've stayed at this hotel a number of times for business. The pros: great location, the front desk and wait staff is very responsive and accomodating. They greet you as you come in/leave - very welcoming! The cons: some of the rooms are not so nice - mildew in the corners of the shower, really noisy (rooms by the elevator/ice machine and low level rooms at the end of the hall - 241 and 341 are a NIGHTMARE), and missing room service menus (this has happened to me 3 different times now). The food at the restaurant is not outstanding, but I don't remember having many really great meals at a non-resort Marriott. The towels are like sandpaper, but this is the same at nearly every Marriott I've stayed in. The beds are comfy.
