Decided to give this hotel a try and was not disappointed. As a former Four Seasons hotel -- you're going to come in expecting the best -- and that's what we got.
Check in was seamless and we had a room looking over Fashion Island. Now I had read many reviews saying that construction was loud. It was pretty loud, but, once you close your balcony window and curtains the noise isn't bad.
Everything about the room was top notch. Clean and the Bose sound system was an awesome touch. Service was what you'd expect with a place like this. Every employee made contact and seemed genuinely nice, unlike other hotels where everything seems forced and fake.
Parking is expensive -- like $30 or so a night. Here's a tip -- if you come on a weekend, you can park on the street below for free all weekend. It's not much of a walk to the front drive from there -- just a few steps.
