I've stayed about six times at The Hills Hotel while on business in Southern, CA. The hotel itself is modern, nice and comfortable and the staff is professional and helpful. The bar is good and the restaurant food is good. The hotel rate is reasonable and represents a good value. Nearby are plenty of restaurants and a Starbucks coffee. My... More

I was in a bind to find a hotel in July in the Irvine area. I am a Hilton regular but could not find a room that was affordable and available. I resorted to Priceline and was placed in the Hills Hotel in the Laguna Beach area. I'm always apprehensive with a boutique brand...but the pics looked nice and the... More

I had the pleasure of working with Tessa Fattahi for my wedding on May 14, 2016. Our wedding was in Ladera Ranch and we decided to check out the Hills Hotel for guest accommodations. I’m so glad we did. From the very beginning, Tessa was prompt and courteous and really took the stress out of this part of the wedding... More

Great staff! Serene, comfortable beds and reasonable summer rate for a super last minute booking. Short drive up from a day at the beach and the Sawdust Festival - peaceful rest from central Los Angeles, and again the beds can't be beat. Very nice place indeed.

My soccer team was in town for a tournament (girls U10). This was our end of the season trip. The rooms were fine and the staff was great. Staff assisted (thank you very much Tessa) us in setting up an area near the pool for a team dinner/party on Saturday night. Tessa also helped two other teams from our region... More

Beautiful room overlooking the pool area. (Did not use the pool.) King size bed with an awesome mattress! Nice area with easy access to the highway. Good restaurant. Small bar area, nice music and a complimentary glass of wine.

This was a great hotel. My room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Next time I am in the area I will stay here again. The next morning I had breakfast in the restaurant and was very impressed..

Check-in was rather slow, but the super friendly staff worked together to get our keys to us as best they could. The elevators reeked of insecticide, but this is Southern California, so I suppose that's their best defense against pests. Our room was large and well-appointed--wonderfully remodeled from the last time we stayed there. It felt very comfortable. A very... More

We found this hotel online, and it turned out to be good find. The rooms are modern, well appointed, spotlessly clean with comfortable beds, plenty of thick towels in the bathroom. The only negative was the placement of the AC which sent a draft over the bed. The staff were friendly and helpful.
