We stayed here recently for a long weekend. The hotel is nice and clean. The lobby is pretty and the water feature adds a nice touch. When we booked we had wanted a double room, but there were none available so we said ok to a king with a roll away. When we checked in the roll away was not in the room yet so I called and it was there shortly. Everything we requested was taken care of very quickly. The room had plenty of room for the 3 of us and even though it was by the elevator we were not bothered by noise.
A couple of things we did not like: the shuttle transportation could not be reserved so we had to search and wait for a cab one morning. We were able to get assistance with getting the cab and it ended up being cheaper so that worked out well. Also, the restaurant is very small. The morning we tried to eat there we could not get a table so we had to go searching for breakfast, fortunately there are a lot of options near by. There is a grab n go place in the hotel, but the hot options are very limited.
This hotel is in a great location; a short drive from several places and there is a plenty in walking distance as well. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: I heard there are not many double rooms so be sure to request it on your reservation

My husband and I recently stayed here on our babymoon. This was actually the best Westin experience I've ever had! We redeemed Starwood points to stay here and chose this location to be close to Newport, Balboa Island and Laguna.

First, Joe, who checked us in and casually asked about our purpose for the stay. Less than an hour after checking in we were extremely surprised by a gift of healthy treats and chilled waters along with a hand-written note from Joe. He even remembered the baby's name!! We were blown away!

Second, they had a self-park option which was reasonably priced and convenient.

Last, the pool was surprisingly nice, clean and lovely to use.

Overall this was an excellent Westin property which surprised us a bit due to the corporate Costa Mesa location. Can't wait to come back again sometime.

Stayed with family with small kids. Spent 4 nights here.great base for day trips to beach and convenient for shopping at mall. We had a room that looked out on pool which was beautiful. Pool was a great place to hang out with free wifi. One point though is that the pool is very deep. Limited shallow area so not ideal if children are not strong swimmers.

This Westin hotel is the best Westin that I have ever been to. It looks comfortable and is furnished with a neat look. The lobby is large and spacious with the access to an outdoor pool and a fountain. The rooms are pretty cozy with a wonderful view looking out towards the front of the hotel, where the big Christmas tree is. The pool area is pretty beautiful, and although I have not swum in it I say that the experience of swimming in the pool is wonderful. Overall, this Westin is very new and luxurious.

I was recently here for a 1 night stay for business.

It is a typical older Westin property - the lobby is fairly new but the rooms could use an update soon. Everything is clean and functional.

I used the pool but they could do a better job with the cleaning. There are a couple of empty plastic cups sitting on the bottom of the pool. I appreciate I was there in December and it is not heavily in use but it should be clean and trash free. The gym is also interestingly located in an annex.

The wifi internet was very fast.

Recently stayed for a business conference. Lovely property. Helpful and friendly staff. Walking distance from South Coast Plaza which is wonderful shopping. Too cold for the pool, but it looked amazing.
