Another great experience at a Westin hotel. The hotel was nice, conveniently located and, as usual for Westin, the service was great. Parking is located across the street and is extra, this was the only minor annoyance on an otherwise great stay.

Very nice looking hotel. We got a big room with very comfortable king bed and nice park view. Big and cleaned bathroom too. Max, the front desk person was very nice, kind and professional. He managed to solve the problem of our safe very quickly. He did more than we expected from him. We normally do not like to talk... More

We have stayed here multiple times and you can't beat the location. Right across the street from South Coast Plaza and easily close to Irvine, Anaheim, even Newport Beach. All the rooms have recently been renovated since this past december. The staff was very courteous and nice and went out of their way to make sure my family and I... More

At the entrance, step carefully-it's being re done for low water, most likely. Our medical group obtained drinks, chat areas, and the catering service was prompt with each meal service. I do note they cleaned up the service within seconds of the attendees going back into session, so if you came back out to get more coffee...sorry about that, it... More

We are from the upper midwest and my son and his bride had a destination wedding in Laguna Beach on the ocean. This was a great hotel for all the out of towners to fly into and get a free shuttle to the hotel. The group rate I got was fantastic - much closer to $100/nt than $200. The property... More

Location is great, food is very average at best. Wasn't impressed with room service. Friendly staff, valet guys were nice although on a few occasions left standing around waiting for people to help us. Service is not over which I'm used to at Fairmonts. Had to stay here this trip, next trip it's back to the Fairmont down the street.

Great, well managed Westin. Rooms are modern, spacious and clean. Staff are helpful and friendly. There is a fee for parking but there are options for self-park at lower rate than valet and parking is located very close by. A mall is within walking distance and there are good food options in a general 5 mile radius of the hotel.

I have stayed at this property with my husband many times. It is clean, recently renovated and they have a great location. However the front desk staff has a cold and indifferent attitude towards their guests.

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!
