Had a one night stay on Saturday the 16th of August. Had won a bid for the room at a charity auction. Hotel was busy with two weddings and family vacationers. 12th floor room with fridge, microwave and large flatscreen with good channel selection. Comfortable bed and the room clean and decent size. Quiet on the 12th floor throughout the night. A little worried about hearing ambulances arriving during the night at UCI hospital across the street. Heard several when out at the pool area, but did not hear any during the night.
Pool area is small, but adequate. The building blocks the sun out fairly early. Never overly crowded. Jacuzzi as well. Tennis court also near pool area. Did not use the gym located on the 2nd or 3rd floor.
Dined at the lobby restaurant. We arrived 5 minutes before closing,(10pm). Waiter said no worries, relax and enjoy your meal. Really appreciated that. They do serve the same menu at the bar until 11. BLT and Tortilla soup hit the spot.
Hotel does charge for parking, I think 14 dollars per day. Went ahead and just used valet. You can call ahead to have your car ready just before you are ready to leave.
Several other dining options over at the The Block Outlets. Since we live in the area and only a one night stay, we just relaxed at the hotel.
Would stay again.More
