We picked this hotel because it was close to the John Wayne Airport and in between the cities of Irvine and Newport Beach. It was located on a good thoroughfare which connected us to several places we wanted to visit. We had a room that overlooked the courtyard, pool and fire pit. The price was reasonable, but my son thought we had a good price because it was during the winter season. It was clean and modern. Breakfast is served, but it is not included in the price of the room. Internet was free! We always appreciate this. I was also glad they were good at recommending places to eat since we were new to the area and had no idea where to start. They handed us a well-organized paper listing the nearby restaurants, the types and the directions. We were there for a pleasure trip, but this is also a good business hotel.
