Roberto and his staff went over and above. They extended us a warm welcome and took very good care of our concerns treating us with real professional grade hospitality worthy of a 5 Star hotel. In fact, next time we need to choose between this holiday inn and another higher rated hotel, I may have to stay here again. Thank... More

My boyfriend and I stay here quite a bit for business and are never disappointed. The customer service is the best! There are lots of restaurants nearby, but we always stay in for the excellent service from Gaby and Carmen in the morning, and Dani and Alex in the evening. These restaurant employees are the best! They are nice, friendly,... More

Thank you Holiday Inn Irvine Spectrum especially Roberto at the front desk! He made us feel welcome and at home. Truly what hospitality is all about! He made arrangements for the shuttle service and informed us of the benefits of being a member of the IHG rewards club. Again, a big thank you!

Everything was great about this hotel. Location was convenient due to the closeness to the freeway. Close enough to the airport and without the noise and run down feel airport hotels have. Rooms were clean and has covered parking. Highly recommend. Thank you to Roberto for making the check in hassle free. Great customer service skills!

My wife and I came out to a conference here and extended for a couple of personal days. The accommodations were great but the people were even better. The food was yummy and there was fun musical entertainment a couple of nights. Even though the area is busy the hotel is on a relatively quiet street. The pool was a... More

All staff were very friendly and helpful! The guest room was very clean, comfortable, and very inviting. We loved the restaurant. The salmon on the caesar salad was prepared perfectly and the breakfast wraps were delicious, too. Having said all that, the more amazing part for me was the meeting room. My guests appreciated the wall of windows and private... More

The property was very clean, including the room carpeting. I wear white socks to see how clean carpeting is, and this room was cleaner than my own home! Excellent complimentary HH wine and cheese, Really fresh food on the breakfast buffet. Nice room furnishings except for a desk chair with some peeling vinyl. Good work space, nice (and clean!) mini... More

We were staying on points I had earned through IHG, and had swiped our credit card for incidentals. My wife had charged one breakfast to the room.
