The Westin South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa is a nice hotel that lives up to its star rating, though, in my opinion it is a notch below its competition in this category. The hotel, located just off the 405 freeway and across the street from South Coast Plaza, has a canopied entrance to a large lobby with a lot of... More

This property is perfect in many ways. It is conveniently connected to the South Coast Plaza Shopping Center with a sky bridge. It shares grounds with the community theater as well as being within walking distance of many fine restaurants. The rooms are large and comfortable. We have stayed many times but this trip we were reminded of how valuable... More

I booked two rooms for a few days and from the moment we stepped into the lobby Miriam at the desk was incredible. She made us feel welcomed, she was very patient and helpful.

We loved this hotel. It has great location off the freeways, near major businesses and restaurants, and a walking distance from a HUGE mall. We particularly enjoyed the swimming pool. It's hard to find a 10 ft. pool in hotels anymore; it was heated and very clean. Cross from the pool, there is a nice gym. The rooms are nice... More

Excellent sleep during two night stay, very comfy bed, pillows and sheets. Good room service and restaurant. Great staff. But needs updated wiring to be device friendly. Our room was full of extension cords and No plugs at table height.

It's a Westin. Well-kept, friendly service, and higher rates than you would expect. The restaurants are expensive as is the Lobby Bar. That is all to be expected at a Westin. However, I didn't give it five stars for two reasons. First of all, our room was too warm and we couldn't get it cooler. The thermostats are fixed so... More

This is an expensive hotel so expectations are high. The staff was very nice, the room was clean, and the overall facility is fine. The hotel is very close to the airport and walking distance to the shopping mall. All good things. But..... While everything was nice, it was not up to the price. The room was nice but not... More

Easy to get to. Pet friendly. Came here at the recommendation of groom for wedding. Hotel staff was friendly and accommodated us. Heard there is great shopping nearby. Good parking and no fees for going in and out. Reasonable daily rate.

I have previously stayed at this Westin so this was a return visit after an 18 months break. This is an excellent hotel to stay at. We received exceptional customer service from the front desk, the porters, housekeeping and the concierge printed off maps and gave us clear directions to our destinations. The rooms are looking a ittle tired relative... More
