It's not the Ritz, but if you need a comfortable place to stay and work near John Wayne Airport in Orange County, this is a great option. The staff is friendly and ready to do what's necessary to make your stay comfortable.

If given the opportunity I would avoid this hotel and choose a different place. I was staying using IHG rewards points for one night prior to an early flight from SNA, and the location was close, and the points per night among the lowest options available. As a spire elite I received no upgrade, although I did inquire online ahead... More

Stayed here with my wife from may 6-10 and could not have asked for a better hotel. We had to leave on the 9th because of unforeseen circumstances back at home, Providence, Rhode Island, and they worked with me on getting the refund for the night I wasn't going to be there.

This hotel is literally hidden in the middle of a multi hospital complex. If you have a long term reason to be in the hospital area then I definitely and strongly recommend this place for you.
