They have done a great job with this hotel in refurbishment and in educating the staff. Stayed here 4 days and saw the same consistent great service from the team. The pricing here is really good but you need to know that 1. It is 11 miles from the airport and they do not provide shuttle service. Cab ride is... More

I was visiting the Lake Forest area for business and, as i am an IHG member, decided to stay at the Holiday Inn Irvine Spectrum. Usually, Holiday Inns are a safe bet, but i have to say the Irvine Spectrum is better than other Holiday Inns. The staff is incredibly friendly and answered all my questions with patience and a...

I stayed here for an event my church was holding. Everything and everyone was exceptionally delightful! The front desk helped when I needed directions, housekeepers were polite & quiet. Food in the restaurant was amazing! Typically I wouldn't eat hotel food but I didn't feel like going out & what a surprise, I'm glad I didn't, very tasty! My whole... More

Let me start by saying that the hotel itself was very clean and nice...however, that was the only part of our stay that was "nice." We stayed for two nights for business and vacation. The first night we heard some kind of construction going on below us at around 6 in the evening. We didn't mind because it was a... More

This is a well located facility in a beautiful neighborhood. Nicely appointed decor and well kept grounds. The king size bed room was a bit smaller than expected. However, the rooms are very clean and up to date. The breakfast at the restaurant was exceptional. I ordered the veggie skillet. The portion was healthy and the dish was delightful. If... More

Firstly, at check in the price was higher than the price at booking. The room itself was extremely noisy, and we spent the entire night awake listening to a loud mechanical noise which was so bad and so loud the walls were vibrating! We called down several times for assistance, and none was offered. Staffs were totally unhelpful, discourteous, and... More

Stayed here four nights and found the staff friendly and helpful. It was very clean, modern, and new. Didn't hear any noise from the freeway, but our room faced away from the freeway. Beautiful view of Saddleback Mountain. Conveniently located to restaurants, shopping and many points of interest.
