I was attending a conference and rather pay for the Ritz or St. Regis opted to stay here. Location is about an 1:10 from LAX just off the 405. The Ritz/St. Regis are 5 min away and same for Dana Point harbor. There is a park a quarter a mile away which leads to harbor and makes for a nice area to run in.
The lobby area is very nice an upscale for a Residence Inn. The check in staff was friendly and helpful when we had questions about area. The room was large and had a kitchen and large seating area. The bed was comfortable and there was flat screen tv. Bathroom was nice as well. They have free breakfast in the morning. The pool area looked great as it sits up on the hill with the neighborhood below.
The 2 negatives are: 1). They charge $12 dollars to park in a normal open parking lot. I thought this was pretty ridiculous; and 2) the hotel is next to a train track. About 5:30 am I began to hear the train horn and it continued every 20-30 min.
Overall this is a good hotel for price in the area.
