Spent 4 days recently at this hotel and truly enjoyed it. The staff is very attentive from check-in to check-out. Were especially helpful in directing me to nearby sites, shopping, and entertainment. I found the hotel to be very competitive in pricing but actually better quality than the nearby Marriott I've stayed in previously and nicer in many ways than... More

Am a diamond member so get to compare lots of Hilton family properties. Quick Review. Get picked up at the airport in a minivan that comes to SNA twice an hour. Nice driver though. Lobby impressive but rooms seem very old and worn. Seems possibly construction on 7th floor (exec level) so perhaps that was reason I was not offered... More

My wife and I stayed here at the end of January for a week. It was business related but we extended it for a small vacation.

A friend rented out the starwood suite on the top floor for the night before and the night of her wedding. The suite was stunning and spacious, and offered lots of storage for the groomsmen, the bridesmaid, and the bride and groom. The photographers, make-up & hair crew, and family members also visited before the ceremony to get everyone ready,... More

The room was nice, view was good, everything was clean, and I was enjoying my stay....until the slight noise started early morning (it wasn't distinct, but in my sleep I could hear that it sounded like construction, but maybe was other guests being loud).

Stayed just one night at this beautiful Hilton and would definitely go back. The beds were sooo amazingly comfy. The room was spacious and clean. My only complaint is as a Hilton chain I expected the complimentary breakfast that they are so famous for. I believe it was only available for "executive" levels and higher room rates. Good location, close... More

If you are picking this for airport convenience then I would suggest not. The shuttle is a passenger mini van that holds 7 people. That's a big problem if you are on an early flight as it only starts running at 5:30, runs every 30 mins and you might find there is not enough space for you to fit. It's... More
