Stayed in one of the larger suites. Spacious but hardly 4 or 5 star service/cleanliness. Couch was dirty and stained; turn-down service was virtually non-existent - essentially plopped a bath mat by the beds; on first night, we had a complimentary bowl of fruit/water placed in the room, which was a nice gesture although it was accompanied by 2 glasses...

I just want to know who in their right mind at Irvine Co felt that they needed to bring the douche bags to Fashion Island with the new Aqua Bar that takes over the entire hotel. Pool,Lobby, etc.. gets over run by low class shady guys and gals. This is no longer a classy hotel for the elite, it is... More

The location is nice as it's close to shopping and the beach. The room was ok. If possible, get a room on the higher floors. If not be prepared for wonderful views of foliage. I'm not a fan of the low-flow facilities as it's just annoying. The shower should definitly have a handle bar inside. If you happen to slip... More

From beginning to end our day at this hotel was full of problems. Highlights included: Messing up our appt times at the spa, the Valet losing the car for an hour and a half and waking up the following morning to $165.00 worth of unauthorized charges made to my credit card and still waiting for a manager to call me...

Thank you for visiting Island Hotel with your friends to celebrate a birthday. A spa day seems like a great way to spend part of the day. We are pleased that the spa honored the time that you had scheduled and that your friend was able to make it to Oak Grill for lunch. We make every effort to provide... More

Stayed there last December with my husband. Our room was perfect! Great views with two balconies. Service was excellent and we often think of returning. We could see the ocean and city views. We loved it!

Thank you for staying with us and for writing a review. When we receive a repair request, we make every effort to render immediate repairs. The Spa at Island Hotel invites guests to wind down, relax and reconnect. We have skilled therapists and request that our patrons leave what is customary in the industry. I am sorry that you did...

We stayed in August 2014 on the 9th floor with a nice view of the pool. You could see part of the ocean, but mostly just the nearby mall. The room was very clean, spacious, and the bathroom was great. We had a large room with 2 queen sized beds, a small living area, and huge bathroom. Very well lit,... More

Stayed here once with my husband. Loved the modern common spaces. Great restaurant with excellent food. I became I'll during our stay and the lady in the small gift/toiletries shop was very helpful. Rooms probably due for updating next, but very clean. Very comfy bed with nice linen. Location was great for us--near shopping and quick drive to beach.

I stayed at the Island Hotel this Labor Day weekend. Since I checked in on Thursday and didn't leave until Monday morning, I had plenty of time to experience the property and its amenities, and to observe the staff in action. My first impression of the lobby and main level area was actually a second impression, since I had seen... More

I can't tell you how many times I've stayed at Island Hotel-this is my second review. Between 10-20 stays over a few years. In my previous, I stated that the hotel needs a RE-do! Well, it got one-however, it's gone from good to BAd! Let me say why-the lobby, restaurant, and pool area were redone. Very glam-the restaurant is definitely... More
