I discovered this hotel when I bought a package deal that combined hotel, plane tickets, and rental car. The deal was so amazing, I didn't have high hopes for the hotel. Was I ever wrong! That was last October, and my family and I just returned home today from ANOTHER week's stay at Renaissance ClubSport in Aliso Viejo. We love this place!!!!
First, the fitness aspect of it. As hotel guests, you are entitled to full use of the world class fitness club attached to the hotel. This isn't just some little room with a few free weights and a couple of treadmills. I'm talking dozens of classes, olympic like cardio equipment (too many to count), basketball courts, lemon water, fresh towels, steam rooms, saunas, swimming pools, hot tubs....you just have to see it to believe it. And here's another nice perk we discovered on this trip: Our family in town (whom we were here to visit) could join us for exercise by simply signing them in at the front desk. What a great and healthy way for us all to hang out!
Second, the amenities are fabulous. Excellent restaurant on site, spa (I got a heavenly body brush treatment), coffee shop, patio, bar area, iced water dispensers by the elevators, complimentary granny smith apples and newspapers (Wall Street Journal, LA Times, and USA Today), and high speed internet. There's also valet parking or convenient self-parking. This places lacks NOTHING! One night they even had family movie night by the pool!
Third, the rooms are modern, clean, and comfortable. Feather beds, huge pillows, and large, bright bathrooms with waterfall showers. My only complaint was there weren't enough hooks to hang wet towels from. There was only one hook in our bathroom and no bars, so we had to throw wet towels on the floor instead of being nice to to the planet and hanging them up for reuse. Also, queen beds (as opposed to doubles) would have been nice, but it wasn't a deal breaker for us.
Fourth, Customer Service. This place is tops! Everyone who works here, from the hotel, to the fitness center, to the restaurant, to the spa, is friendly and helpful. It's like they got Disney training or something. We stayed here a week and the service stayed consistently good.
Every time we stay at Renaissance ClubSport, I return home to Nebraska feeling refreshed and actually weighing less! This is our home away from home in southern California. I hope it never changes.
