The staff was great, and we thoroughly enjoyed the pool. My only complaint is the out dated recorded music couldn't be turned off at the pool while we tried to watch tv world cup in our cabana. The food was excellent.

My husband and I booked the Fairmont as a special treat for our young grandsons visiting from Italy. We requested a room with two beds to accommodate the 4 of us, but when we were upgraded to a suite we found only a king bed. The hotel was good enough to bring in to bring in 2 roll-away beds for...

Here for a business trip. Good room, quick pickup at adjacent John Wayne airport after I called. Good fitness room. Checkin uneventful, but not particularly warm and friendly. One evening, our party had a dinner in their Bambu restaurant, which was pretty good, but the service was spotty. One member had to wait 10 minutes for their entree after all... More

I booked a stay at this Fairmont after my wife finally won her four year battle with cancer. After getting the "all clear" from our Oncologist, he recommended we get away from everything and just take a break. My wife and I are huge fans of the Fairmont brand and when we saw that there was one in beautiful, sunny... More

The room; staff and facilities were perfect... But the no hotel parking; valet only and at an extra $20.00 a night.. Plus deposit of $100 a night; Wasn't fair.. Not even street parking was available.. Didn't like how my good deal went south really fast..

Valet parking only so be willing to "chill" while you wait for your car to appear. Valets were very courteous. Workout room was clean and well equipped. With the exception of an unpleasant mothball smell upon entering the room and a sagging king size bed that kept me from a good night's sleep, the room itself was tastefully equipped and... More

This is a solid business traveler hotel with a free airport shuttle and local area shuttle which is handy if your meetings are all within the area. The staff is quite friendly and attentive to guest needs. That being said, the room itself was extremely dark without turning the lights on and the beds are very soft and felt worn.... More

Excellent!!! When you arrived I was great by at least 3 people. They all offered there assistance with my baggage. The front desk person immediately looked me up and called me by name and asked if there is anything else he could help me with and handed me a key. Less than 2 minutes. Excellent Service!!!
