I have stayed at Courtyards all over the Southeast but this was my first visit to a Courtyard on the West Coast. This Courtyard made the other Courtyards look like pay-per-hour motels. It's brand-new, so obviously it will stand out from other Courtyards for that alone. It had a large bathroom (much larger than the luxury hotel I stayed at two weeks before). A smart designer built a shelf with a window into the shower so that you can just reach in to grab a towel without opening the shower door! The showers are all-glass. Sink is large table-type. The beds were soft.
Outside, it comes with a good-sized pool, a fire pit with comfy lounge chairs, and a large artificial grass area with more seating. This Courtyard encourages socializing (which is what my coworkers and I did out by the fire pit). It is also right next to the Irvine Spectrum, so you can get your shopping and dining fix on without having to drive. Finally, it is literally minutes off of the 5 and 405. It took me 15 minutes to get to John Wayne Airport at 7:15 in the morning.
I am not really sure if a $249/night rate is competitive - considering that there are full-service hotels a couple of miles north, but I enjoyed my stay and will recommend the hotel to others.
