Took the kids for a weekend getaway. Room was very well appointed and comfortable. Staff were friendly and attentive. Room service came quickly and the breakfast was good. We spent most of our time at the pool, which was a bit small. It wasn't an issue for us as our kids are little but I imagine older kids (12+) might... More

Very clean both inside and out. All staff very courteous. The pool was bit smaller than i thought, but we didnt have to pay for the cabana. Ran into a slight issue with the valet however, they didn't charge us the $30 overnight parking fee due to the inconvenience. The only complaint I have is that we got a room... More

Arrived at airport and was picked up within 10 minutes after the call to the hotel. When the ride they provide to the hotel is in a Cadillac, you surmise your stay is going to be a class act. Check in was efficient and quick. The room was what one would call "well appointed" with no evidence of wear and... More

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...

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
