We arrived in OC early on a Saturday morning. After a long drive, we were hoping to possible check-in early, but our room was not available (the family staying in it requested a late check-out which backed us up). So we changed and went to the pool (which is rooftop and really nice!) It had a great view of the bay. The only bad part was you had to walk a ways to get to the building that the pool was on and then take the elevator all the way to the top. Then you got up to the pool and there was no bathroom, so you had to get back into the elevator and go down a floor to find the bathroom. And just so you know, there is only one bathroom that we could find on the 5th floor and it has a handicap sign on the front and there are no signs telling you where the bathroom is so good luck! After the pool we laid out at the bay (not that many chairs so bring your towel to sit in the sand). I really like the bay area because there are no waves and it is very relaxing. You can also rent kayaks, paddle boats, everything right there behind the hotel...very convenient! And the front desk will give you coupons for it. We finally got to check in at 4:05 (late!) Our room was ok, nothing special. Really old tv, couldn't even hook up a DVD player to it. Shower had no pressure and if someone else was taking a shower on the floor then the water would not get hot. The really bad part about the room was that their was no balcony :( We love to hang out on the balcony and read :( Anyway, the walls were paper thin and drunks coming from Seacrets would wake us up at 3-4AM screaming and running down the hallway for HOURS! I couldn't believe that hotel security didn't say ANYTHING to them! I really think one of the managers was from Jersey and so were the drunks so they were probably buddies. By the second night, I had enough and called security myself. They are lucky I didn't just call the cops because it went on ALL night! All in all, GREAT LOCATION (one block or so from Seacrets and so close to everything else!) We might stay there again if the price is right, but probably in a bayfront room so we can have a balcony. Hope this helps!
