When travelling for business, sometimes arriving late at the hotel, it's nice to find a comfortable restaurant open late, even offering a late-night "happy hour" with specials created by an in-house chef. The pool, free shuttle, and comfortable nicely-designed rooms make this a great place to stay when visiting Orange County.

We were at the CP OC for 10 days while visiting family and friends. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The staff was outstanding. The only downside was the buffet breakfast was pretty average. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at the CP OC again on our next visit.

The rooms were tidy and well furnished for the price. Furthermore, the hotel staff, and level of customer service was excellent. Michael was particularly helpful. The location is ideal, and complementary hotel shuttle services were great.

This hotel is a hidden gem very deceiving from the outside. Perfect location just adjacent to South Coast Plaza shopping mall. The rooms are modern and very well equipped. This is a far better option than the Hilton across the road. Of particular note is the efficiency and helpfulness of the staff. Michael Samuel and Javier you are a credit.... More

As long as I work for my current company and need a hotel in OC, I'm staying here. I've stayed here for 6 months this year due to a work assignment. Staff: I have to start off by saying the people that work here are the best. They're both professional and personable. Everyone from the shuttle driver to the front... More

Staff are so pleasant and made our stay - nothing was too hard for them. Great location - walking distance to shops and restaurants. Food in the restaurant Fireside was beautiful as well. Loved my stay.

We had a nice comfortable room - enjoyed the extras like Kurig coffee and swivel TV. Jacuzzi was great - although it would have been great if we could have located the light in it. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. Good location. Would stay again!

I have been very impressed with this hotel. I needed a hotel that is close to UCI and UCI Medical Center, and chose to stay here. The location is amazing, with South Coast Plaza and other great shops and restaurants nearby. What really sets this hotel apart from others is the great staff. At the front desk, Sam has always...
