As usual, the Marriott chain delivers a reliable experience. Check-in and bell service was efficient and helpful. The lobby and common areas are laid out well and impeccably clean. There are a few nice additional amenities here. They have a beautiful pool area with special lounges. They have a nice outdoor patio for lunch and dinner. There is a wine/martini bar and sushi bar in the lobby. And a Starbucks. They have a complimentary shuttle to the John Wayne airport. Every time I needed something, they were responsive and I felt very well taken care of. The room was also nice. Great bed, and TV. The desk area was especially good for business travelers with many outlets and pull-out lower desk for the laptop. This hotel is next to the freeway, but I found it to be VERY quiet for sleeping. A couple very minor downers -- the ceiling in the bath is low and the shower is dark. They have no night light so I have to leave on the bathroom light all night. Also, maybe it's me but I'm tired of their orange and ginger bath products.
I would recommend this hotel for anyone staying in the Irvine or Newport Beach area.More
