The hotel staff are pleasant and professional. The place is not that luxurious but good. The rooms are bit small. The kitchen is equipped with some of kitchenware. No laundry machine in each suit but laundry room in 6th floor is available but not free. The location of the residence is very convenient. The WiFi is free but not fast.

I stayed in a studio apartment in Residence Inn for a month. The room was very spacious and more than sufficient for one person. I loved how they were extremely private about their guests. when I had ordered pizza from a local store, they made sure I give my approval before sending them over. > The complimentary breakfast was delicious...

The staff is very accommodating and friendly. The Assistant Manager, Mr. Cure, attempted to do his best when Marriott Rewards, in changing our reservation from Paid with $ to Paid with Points, did NOT transfer our 9 months standing request at this hotel for a wheelchair accessible ONE Bedroom. Mr Cure readily admitted it was a Marriott "human error" The... More

I've stayed at the Courtyard down the street and decided to try the Residence Inn this time. It's in the business area of Irvine, so the area is deserted on the weekends and you'll find good rates. The free breakfast is great and well stocked. The lobby area is roomy and comfortable. The rooms are huge and well appointed -... More

This was just an over night stay for us as we were not ready to make the drive back to what was at the time a hot weekend in Ventura County. Upon arriving, the staff was both courteous and friendly and got us checked in very quickly. The lobby is nice with lots of seating and a couple of TV's... More

We (family of 3) stayed in a king suite - bed was open to the vanity, full kitchen and sofa bed. The one bathroom had the shower and toilet. It was a newly renovated room on the third floor and all the plumbing fixtures were the new water saving ones. The staff (especially Justin) was very helpful, friendly, and accommodating.... More

I have stayed and rated this property a number of times before and always rated it four stars. It dropped a star this time and I will tell you why in a moment. I first want to acknowledge Krista at the front desk who was very sweet and professional. As a Gold Marriott she upgraded me to a one bedroom,... More

We stayed at the Irvine Residence Inn twice, in Feb. and then May. The hotel has recently been renovated and the rooms are large and comfortable. The pool is beautiful with many chairs and spa. There is also a large area for groups to hang out, with fire pits. The breakfast area is also spacious and well stocked.

Close to the airport, with free parking and free breakfast. Nice rooms, and more important, clean and quiet. Everything the RI should be, at a modest price point. Very good shopping nearby and plenty of great restaurants within 5 minutes drive. One of the nicer venues near the airport, especially because of the reasonable tab.
