My daughter and I stayed at the Residence Inn on Main St. in Irvine from Nov. 12-16 2009.
Our stay couldn't have been nicer. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room large and comfortable. The breakfast very satisfying. Great restaurants and shopping at The District a couple miles away. The only thing that could have made our stay nicer is if the pool had been heated and the airport shuttle started before 7:00am. No biggy, our stay was great. Special thanks to Colter and Lap at the front desk. The free parking was a real plus.

One night in Irvine... forget charm, history, and curb appeal. This place --- I suspect this applies to the entire Residence Inn by Marriott chain --- is all about emulating the convenience of a suburban home. Lots of space, fully functioning kitchen (sans oven, but with cooktops, dishwasher, and a full size fridge), big flat TV, operable windows, ... everything is clean and practical. My engineer husband loves it. He spent hours cooking up a yummy dinner in the kitchen! Kudos to the Marriott marketing team for identifying this niche market, and executing it with gusto. This chain makes all the reasons for renting a vacation condo obsolete. Their TV ads (if you have seen them) are a bit exagerated, obviously.

This 8-story Residence Inn is just off the I-405 and about 5 minutes from UC Irvine. I chose this property because of its proximity to the university. It's also quite close to many regional/west coast headquarter offices for fairly well known companies.

I was warmly welcomed the moment I stepped into the lobby for check in. Check in was quick and once in the room felt relaxed and comfortable. Everything was spotlessly clean. Room temperature was easy to keep regulated and the windows opened for some nice fresh air. Great shower and all appliances were operating perfectly.

Breakfast was fantastic. Food was replentished often and area was kept clean. They seem to know their clientele as steamed rice and miso soup was offered, along with the traditional hot and cold breakfast offerings.

I will definitely return if in the area again. Oh--and complimentary parking!!!

I think I was spoiled by this hotel. Room is spacious and clean. I love the LCD TV in the room. The lobby and pool side patio is a friendly place to hang out. The staffs are wonderful.
I spent a few months at this hotel due to a long project. This hotel was home away from home for me. Highly recommended!

This is a newly refurbished property that was nice before the remodel! Rooms are beautiful with dark woods and modern appliances. Close to everything in Irvine and very good weekend rates for seniors and AAA members. Nice breakfast buffet as well.

As usual used trip advisor to pick a winner near SNA airport. The number one rating for Irving is right on the money. The cleanliness is outstanding and the staff professional and friendly. Value for money is excellent when the free internet, parking, breakfast, and M-R happy hour is taken into account. Pool and whirpool are first rate, and the amount of business travelers staying in the hotel shows it is worth the rate. Hard to believe it is not a 4 star property, but hoping its popularity doesn't make the price skyrocket.....other 4 stars in the area should take note.
