We recently stayed at this hotel for 5 nights while in Orange County, CA. We were there to visit my mother who was very ill. She passed away as we arrived in CA; we stayed here while making plans for her funeral. The staff was friendly, the room very comfortable and the hotel is relatively new. There is a bistro...

Dear Gingy Q, Thank you for choosing to stay at the Courtyard Foothill Ranch. I am disappointed to hear that you left on a sour note! You are correct, our rates do fluctuate based off our occupancy.

I have stayed at a few different hotels in the area and so far this has been the nicest one. Clean, great beds/pillows, great service. Kind of disappointing that elite members don't get breakfast at this Marriott chain - guess I am used to the Hilton all inclusive policies being a Diamond member for many years. Location within walking distance...

We stayed here overnight for a wedding celebration located at the Rancho Las Lomos Wildlife Foundation. It is a welcoming and clean location, the staff is friendly and accommodating. We arrived before check in time as the wedding was at 4 and they were able to find clean rooms for us. We had a cozy room with a view of...

Great clean and updated hotel, right off the freeway, easy to access, quiet room. Starbucks in the same parking lot is very handy in the morning. Rooms are very clean and up to date. I really like the toll road, traffic is non existent, and makes for a quick trip.

Used my Marriott Rewards for a one night stay at this lovely location. This hotel located off the toll road, is situated near many restaurants and gyms. The hotel is a newer courtyard, quiet and very comfortable. I used the mobile check-in for early arrival and my room was waiting upon my arrival. It's a lively hotel and I highly...

The hotel is a nice place, clean with a nice pool. Toll roads are pretty much required to get out, and there aren't a ton of food options nearby. But the rooms are pretty big, the place is nice and clean, and you can buy expensive snacks in the lobby.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cradled by the Saddleback Mountains, the Courtyard Foothill Ranch Irvine East Hotel is an oasis in South Orange County. We're perfectly situated between Lake Forest and Rancho Santa Margarita. Our Foothill Ranch hotel is surrounded by many wilderness parks and yet a short drive away from the elegance of Newport Beach, Corona Del Mar and the coves, eclectic atmosphere and art galleries of Laguna Beach. Back at our hotel, experience our high-tech lobby featuring The Bistro, which serves Starbucks coffee, where you can sit and enjoy a full meal and cocktails in the evening, or grab an appetizer or something light to go. Stay connected with free Wi-Fi and our interactive GoBoard(R) technology, providing relevant, up-to-date news, weather and local information. Guests of our Lake Forest, CA hotel appreciate our smartly-designed rooms that provide the right mix of relaxation and flexible functionality. When downtime arises, soak up the California sun and relax at our outdoor pool and whirlpool. ... more   less
