I found the Hyatt a good place to get a little California fix on a fleeting business trip. When I got up to my room, there was a hummingbird buzzing the flowering trees and I could see sailboat masts and a strip of water. The room was comfortable and clean; bathroom and toiletries good; my only gripe was that the minuscule creamer packet for the in-room coffee led me to use three "Arabica Mix Condiment Packs" (their label).
Swimming before breakfast the next day I had a lovely pool (one of three) to myself. I appreciated the lobby layout switched completely from bar at night (with tasty bar food that substituted well for a heavy dinner) to coffee bar with a limited breakfast menu in the morning. I had left my laptop at home, and appreciated using one of the lobby computers.
The desk, valet and wait staff were all friendly and well trained.
The hotel was an $18 taxi ride from John Wayne airport.More
