Great hotel with great location. I travel for work most of the year and I have to say that the staff at this hotel was great! The food at functions was great and the proximity to other restaurants within walking distance made it very easy.

Beautiful hotel with well appointed rooms and great staff. Shuttles to the beach and shopping. Easy access to John Wayne airport and the freeways. We have stayed at several Fairmont facilities and always had the best service and stay experience,

Had a nice one night stay to visit a friend who was staying at the hotel as well. The hotel was clean and well kept. The staff was also very friendly, especially the pool server on Wednesday (08/19) evening. He was the only one on staff and was doing a a great job handling everyone orders! Hard worker and very...

We were attending a wedding in the area and this was much less expensive than many other properties. We had to drive a little further but not much. convenient to airport. My only complaint is that the room was hot so I never got a great nights sleep 3 nights. Ugh. I called maintenance twice but it never helped. Its... More

This hotel is a wonderful business hotel, with large and clean rooms and conveniently located to many things. Although, I was unfortunately on a ground floor room and there is NO natural light, which is a huge deal for me. I checked in late at night, and when I found out it was a ground floor I mentioned to the... More

Took a family of four for a one week vacation. Have stayed at other Fairmont locations before. Same great experience this time as before. Excellent location with easy access to surrounding tourist attractions including beaches and Disney. Will definitely come back to them again.

Location is convenient and lots to do within a near drive away. Beaches/resaurants are all within 3-4 miles of each other. Hotel has a great restaurant and a great swimming pool. Very posh. Has a garden that's beautiful and the service is great all around. Valet is $30/night which is not so bad given LA parking is very expensive. Loved... More

Rather than paying $600 for a night at a hotel in Laguna Beach, we decided to stay here after attending Pageant of the Masters. It's only about a 20-minute drive, & we saved a lot. We've stayed at several Fairmont properties around the world, & although this is not the most spectacular one, it is elegant & welcoming. The toiletries... More

I stayed here for a birthday bash weekend and I must say it was very nice! Absolutely loved the fact that it was pet friendly and they accommodated my request for a top room w/ panoramic views. They even stored my birthday cupcakes in their kitchen, which I absolutely appreciated! I also love their Rose 31 products. I wanted to... More
