This Holiday Inn was up to date, clean, in the community areas as well as the room I had (king) was spacious and welcoming.The bed was VERY comfortable. Their shuttle service to John Wayne airport made it very convenient for us to drop our rental car off the night before our AM flight and get back to the hotel at that time with the shuttle as well as back to the airport in the AM. The staff was efficient in checkin, helpful with arrangement for the shuttle service as well as directions for a great place to eat in Newport Beach. I enjoyed the real breakfast buffet in the AM which was complimentary as a platinum member and refreshing menu not to have the HI express type continental breakfast.I moved to this hotel after working in another area of California all week to be close the airport the night before departure and was an excellent choice.

Room Tip: Asked for platinum upgrade and go this king room .

We arrived about noon and one of our party's rooms was not quite ready. So we went in to the restaurant for a quick bite and then spent a couple hours out by the very nice fenced-in pool. Staff were pleasant and helpful, restaurant was very nice, and all-in-all I would rate this hotel as a "would definitely come back."

Room Tip: One minor irritation was we had pool-side rooms and the partying went on until about 11:00. if you...

The front desk staff was wonderful, especially Clara. Our room wasn't ready yet, but our team was attending a business meeting across town and we still needed to get ready after our long plane ride. Clara worked her magic and secured us another room and we made it to our meeting just in time. Thank you for the exceptional service with a smile.

The reception staff were very efficient and welcoming and the hotel has ample parking and conveniently situated for shopping and beaches.The rooms are extremely well appointed and very clean and all the staff and bar staff very friendly.We will certainly stay here again.Just one minor downside......laundry facilities could be expanded as a lot of the guests are in transit and need to use the machines so often there wasn't enough machines available.

I stayed here for business and pleasure and enjoyed my stay very much. It is quiet and relaxed and the staff is very nice. They have a nice bar area and breakfast. The rooms I stayed in were clean and I was very comfortable. The location was very convenient, as well.

Room Tip: Avoid a room next to the elevator. Second and third floors are quieter.
