“Pretty d**n good”
Reviewed 9 December 2012

You can literally walk to it from airport. Quick airport shuttle service. Most reasonably priced Hilton I've ever stayed in, with -- can you believe it -- free wifi? The room was quiet and sizable. Breakfast was fine, the usual $20 buffet. The gift shop items were more overpriced than in the airport shops. Parking is $16 a day so it's actually cheaper to either pick up your car the next day, or drop it off the night before--even if you have to drive for another day! The airport is small enough that all of this can be done pretty quickly.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room. The hotel is tall enough that you get away from the noise and you don't re...

After driving in from Vegas, could not wait to check in, got to front desk, gave my name, the young person looked at me and said you do not have a room booked.
I gave him a copy of my booking , he said ok , i will find you a room, but he would not honor Arrp discount as he said all those rooms were taken.
I felt like my wife and I were treated as second class customers, it will be a long time before I go back to a Hilton, hello Hampton Inns.

This hotel is perfectly situated within easy walking distance from the airport. So instead of waiting for a courtesy shuttle you can take a refreshing walk to the hotel. Nice, quiet room with a good bed. Efficient check in and out.

My husband and I needed a good rest from a long wonderful week visiting family and friends and we got just that at the Hilton Irvine/Orange County Airport Hotel.

The outside was not overwhelming, but the room more than made up for it. The bed was very comfortable. The chair in the room was awesome. Great internet connection. The only problem we had with the room was the coffeemaker, it did not work to good, it made a mess all over the tray they had thankfuly had placed under it. The lobby was not really my taste, but I was not going to really spend anytime in it, so that was fine by me.

The first staff person who checked us into our room was very matter of fact, doing her job and no more. We had problems with our key trying to get out of the parking so had to have one of the staff get us out. The second staff person who helped us with the key was much warmer and more friendly.

Don't understand why some hotels feel they need to charge you to park when you have already paid for your room, all parking should always be free when you are staying at the hotel. I would understand needing to use a key to get in and out because of the airport, but there should not be a charge of $16.00 to park.

On first glance at the exterior, this looks like a ubiquitous Hilton in Southern California. But I spent two great days/nights there while working on a project nearby. After a long flight, I walked 10 minutes at most from the airport to the hotel (shuttle also available) and I walked back for my return flight. The hotel is very comfortable, nicely updated, and has accommodating staff throughout. My room was pleasant and very modern. No airplane noise although they are very close. Coffee and tea in room. A few restaurants in walking distance and nearby with shuttle. But I decided to try the hotel's Aura Restaurant my first night, loved it, and ate there the next night as well.

If convenience to the airport is important, I highly recommend this hotel.
