I recently stayed here two nights with my family (13-year old twin sons and my wife). The property is open and inviting with great, panoramic views of the ocean. Property- Clean rooms, comfortable beds. There was a neat elephant sculpture display going on while we where there, with stories attached to read about real elephants around the world that had...

We have stayed at many Marriott hotels, we are a Marriott rewards member and use the points many times. We even received a deal 3 nights for the price of 2.

Million dollar views, accommodating staff, fine facilities. Be sure to be aware of resort fees: $25, parking ($33 per day which can't be avoided since there is no other option), various Cali taxes. Adds up to over $75.00 per night!. Few perks for Elite Rewards. Bottom line: This is more of a Resort than a Marriott.

Loved this resort! From the beginning of our stay right until the end. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful in each department that we interacted with from the valet to front desk as well as housekeeping.

This was one of the most pleasant surprises that I have ever encountered with a Hotel. I was expecting a 3 to 3 1/2 star hotel. Upon arrival I was treated just like the nearby Ritz Carleton.

My husband and I were looking to stay at a marriott property in Orange County. This hotel fit the bill for a weekend trip. We loved the location overlooking Dana point harbor.
