Now where do I start – you would think good stuff right? After all, so many reviews are good, I wondered if I was at the same Hotel and this is an expensive recently updated Marriott Residence Inn in Irvine, near the John Wayne Airport.

So had make a last minute trip to Orange County to see family. We usually stay at the Renaissance Sport in Aliso Viejo but they were booked. We opted for the Residence Inn. What a surprise! It apparently was renovated in 2014. Great room on 7th floor. Quiet, very modern and clean. Breakfast was good. Kept cleaned and stocked. We... More

Stayed at this hotel for eight nights with my family. We rented two studios. The room condition is ok and the furniture is fairly new. The hotel is ideal for families however its not within walking distance from major shopping centers. The hotel neighbourhood is surrounded by resrdintial complex and business at the same time. Its about 10 minutes drive... More

I would have given this hotel 5 stars except for the lousy wifi. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, and the location is convenient. But for some reason the staff couldn't make the message light on my phone stop blinking (they didn't try very hard) and nobody could make the wifi work reliably. Especially frustrating was the constant... More

This property is everything you expect from a Residence Inn, our requests were filled and we were greeted with a smile upon check-in. The suites are modern and roomy, beds comfortable, breakfast good (except for the cheap paper towel napkins) and amenities like laundry room and pool were nice. The comfy outdoor furniture was disappointing because of the bird droppings--changed... More

Wish we could've stayed more than a night!! Loved the shower & swivel tv. Nice neighborhood. We had an end room & it was very quite & comfortable. Nice to have full size fridge, stove & oven, microwave & sink. Bed was super comfy. Loved the free wifi & parking. Nothing negative to say about this property.

Newer Residence Inn, with eight floors and all inside hallways. Close to the airport and they do have shuttle service from Orange County Airport. Rooms were large, with both a kitchen table and a desk. They even had a power strip on the desk for three devices. In my opinion, this was very thought out, since everyone has multiple things...
