The earlier reviewer who called this a "textbook Westin" is right. By that I mean that the hotel is perfectly fine for a night's stay: clean, recently renovated (new carpet, new bathrooms, crown moulding), quiet enough to get some sleep. But it is very Westin in that there's nothing particularly great, charming, or comfortable about it: your job here is... More

The hotel meets all the Westin standards. Good sized rooms and amazing bed. Nice views and room service was fresh and delicious. Staff were friendly and helpful. Easy walk to huge shopping malls. Close to local airport and about 40 minutes from lax. Will be back!

We stayed here to do some after Christmas shopping and thought the hotel and the location were perfect for our family. The hotel is a short walk away from the mall and there was none of the typical parking hassle. The front desk was very friendly, and the room was nice and spacious. We will stay here again when we...

I stay here from time to time because I'm an SPG Platinum member and it the closest Starwood property to Newport Beach area. The staff is great and the rooms are fine; typical Westin, but not once in 5 years have I been offered an upgrade. Additionally, as a business traveler, I appreciate a club lounge. Granted the lounges are... More

I love this hotel. I have stayed at least a half dozen times. The restaurant there, Pinot Provence, is very, very good. If you want something different, South Coast Plaza is right across the street with many other culinary choices. It is close to SNA [John Wayne Airport], and a stone's throw away from the 405 freeway. There's lots of... More

I love this hotel! The location is amazing: steps to the Segerstrom Performing Arts Center, South Coast Plaza, and a quick ride to John Wayne. My one complaint previously was the dated/boring rooms, but they are in the middle of updating the rooms, so it's basically perfect now! The valet service is so friendly and helpful, as are the bellhops.... More

We went there for a wedding on October 2010. (It did not give me an option to pick that date). Everywhere in this hotel was clean and well maintained. The staff were super friendly and their service was outstanding. I remember my graduation was coming up and I had to provide them my head's dimension !!! for graduation ceremony outfit.... More

I have stayed at the Westin SCP 3 times now. It is a large and luxurious hotel and I have always enjoyed my stay there. It is just across a footbridge from the enormous South Coast Plaza which is the purpose of my trip so cannot be beaten for convenience. The rooms are large with good sized bathrooms. This trip...

The Westin is located right by a performing arts center and across the street from the mall. Newport beach is a close drive as long as you don't hit to much traffic. It took us less than 20 minutes. The hotel itself is beautiful and the staff is very attentive. They had great suggestions about sights to see and places... More

I stayed at the Westin South Coast Plaza for a training event, and was immediately impressed by the service when I checked in late on a Saturday night. I was given a room - small, but very comfortable - on a floor that had recently been renovated. The view from the room was very nice; I could even see the... More
