I've been staying at this property for over a decade. Over the years they've kept up the property very nicely and is a solid business hotel. But after this last renovation of the lobby, restaurant, and pool area it's certainly been taken up a notch. It's a beautiful blue and gray and white southern CA escape.

In terms of service it continues to be consistently good from the front desk to housekeeping to meeting services.

The major downfall are the rooms which is a shame since that's where you'll be spending most of your time. They are small and outdated and done in golds and burgundies. Management said they are to be redone next so that will be a nice addition!

Overall it's still a very good property.

The hotel was nice, from the room to the pool. However, what really made our stay over the top was the excellent staff. At check in, Oliver at the front desk asked us why we were staying with them. When I mentioned that we were celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary, he naturally expressed his congratulations. But then, he continued to upgrade us to a concierge level room that was tucked back in the corner. And then, to my even greater surprise, once we got to the room, we received complementary chocolate covered strawberries with a hand-written note hoping that our anniversary was a great one.

It's touches like these that were unexpected and wonderful. It made a great anniversary even better.

Kudos to the staff, and thank you for making our stay AWESOME!

Great Irvine hotel- centrally located near train station and airport. Room was comfortable, but dated, however staff was very freindly and accomodating. Would stay again. Marriot's customer service is outstanding. Wasn't too happy with the fact that I had to pay for wi-fi in the room.

This is a nice Marriott... expensive but fairly priced for the area.

The Concierge Lounge is one of the better ones in the country. And the bacon is deliciously crispy at breakfast. That is a bad thing for me... can't stop at just two pieces.

The lobby bar was very nice. Attentive bartenders and good food. Drinks were OK - they measure them out so do not expect a good pour. Price was pretty good too - 1/2 price apps during happy hour.

The valet was only so so. They were kind of slow - and way too expensive.

Nice Marriott, good location. I will be back.

Not the best Marriotr I've stayed in, loved our room 2 sides of windows however did not like mold in ceiling above air ducts and by that I mean a 2 foot bunch of it, how housekeeping missed that ??? Told them at checkout, they weren't overly concerned. Rooms a little dated,and worn. Car service I asked for turned into cab service from hell ( I swear guy thought he was an Indy driver!) Lounge area very inviting and hotel staff pleasant.

I have stayed for years in and around OC for business and leisure. I had never stayed with the Marriott brand due to being almost exclusive to Hilton. What sold me on this hotel, was hands down the service! From check in to check out they were friendly as heck! The rooms are so so, but not bad. My room did not come with a mini fridge or a coffee maker. Didn't try their food, other than the Starbucks on site, which was a plus. Would stay here again no doubt.

Could not have been a better experience. All staff was extremely helpful. The renovations are great. The hotel was busy. Paying for parking was a bit much, especially if you were a guest in hotel. Everyone that we interacted with was extremely friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bar staff were the best. Emily at the bar and Ramone in the restaurant could not have been better!

Room Tip: One side of the hotel has large sliding glass doors to fresh air. Choose the side with sliding windo...
