This is a great hotel for frequent business travelers, while being close to many orange county attractions. The rooms are very clean, the majority of the hotel is remodeled. Covered attached parking is very convenient. If you book well in advance the rates are fantastic, but this hotel frequently sells out a week in advance. If you are a gold... More

As a professional speaker, I visit a LOT of Hilton properties. I came back to this Hilton property for a Yellow Ribbon (Air Force) conference in which I was a presenter and it was a delight to be back. The good news is that it was more of a "hit" than a "miss."

This hotel has definitely seen better days. Everything is worn and not really kept up and the hotel "restaurant" and "bar" are a joke. Luckily there are quite a few things around so you don't have to suffer through the extremely impersonal and cold environment in the lobby. In addition the AC system in the room is unable to cope...

This hotel did a great job for being understaffed. The executive lounge for breakfast was very crowded and the person taking care of it went above and beyond to help out even though she was by herself. Paris Hilton should pay her employee's instead of hoarding it all.. We had a great stay..

My wife and I stayed over Christmas 2014. Conveniently located within walking distance to restaurants and South Coast Plaza shopping centre. The hotel was extremely clean, comfortable and met all of our needs. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful which really made for a nice Christmas. Highly recommend.

Friendly, helpful staff. Nice, clean and comfortable rooms. We stayed at this Hilton before, and we'll definitely stay here again. It's not as convenient if you're visiting Disneyland. Otherwise, it's a great hotel.

I booked a night before the holidays to give my wife and I a moment to catch our breath. The service was outstanding from beginning to end. The room was perfect and the food was excellent in presentation, taste, portions and quality. I will definitely book another evening here at the property.
