Reviewed February 21, 2014

Check-in was easy. Rooms/public areas are getting a bit dated, but are all very tasteful and clean. The free breakfast was excellent, and the cookies at night were a nice touch. A little noise from the airport, but no big deal.

We really enjoyed this hotel. We wanted a place to stay that was close to relatives in the Newport Coast area and this place was in a great location. Very easy to get to/fro, however, we warned that you are very close to some toll roads so if you want to avoid paying a toll like we did ($2.75) be careful of which freeways you get on.

We got the Executive Suite with a king bed in the bedroom and a queen sleeper in the living room. Our child slept quite fine in the queen sleeper (although the mattress was thin, I don't think I would have been comfortable). The king bed was ultra comfortable - actually one of the most comfy I've ever slept in. The suite was spacious with two TV's, a desk, small fridge, sink, microwave, lots of drawer space, a patio door that opened to a tiny balcony, which was more like a ledge, but nice to see the outdoors. The room was rather dark, but that was most likely due to the dark furnishings. The sofa sleeper was a nice leather as well. It was immaculately CLEAN which I loved. The staff were courteous and very helpful. We actually had to switch our reservations due to a cancelled flight and they did that without a blink of an eye without a charge for the late notice (less than 24 hours). They have an outdoor pool that is heated, but it was too cold for us to use it. I highly recommend this hotel. We will definitely return!

Green Features: They have environmentally friendly practices and will only change your sheets if you put the flyer on the pillow cases. They also are supposed to only replace the towels that you place on the floor. However, they ended up replacing all towels and kept the used towels on the hooks.

This hotel is perfectly located for many of the best Orange County attractions. It is less than 10 miles from beautiful Newport Beach (and probably cost 50% less). The facility is new, clean, well-decorated and the rooms are first rate. Very tasteful ambience, free wifi and full breakfast. There are two pool areas with jacuzzi and many rooms have whirlpool/jet bathtubs (nothing fancy but still pleasant). The king bed is VERY comfortable. At times we noticed they were short-handed (getting room service after 3:00 PM is very iffy) and they have a very narrow check-out window (extra fee if yu check out too early OR too late). The facility is next to John Wayne Airport, so occasionally you hear planes but only briefly (and never after midnight). There are many restaurants nearby, including a decent Peruvian place across the street. Still with rate starting at about $140 per night, this is one of the best values in luxury comfort you will find (for a family of four in one room it's practically a steal). They have other locations in the area (we actually switched to her from Laguna Woods at the last minute without any problem - very accommodating). Thanks you, Ayers - we'll be back!

Our experience at the Ayres (CM-Newport) was amazing! We went during Christmas, so the hotel was decorated beautifully and everything was really quite perfect. Our room was clean and lovely, the beds and feather pillows were exquisite. We rested well in quiet surroundings and very much enjoyed the hot breakfast provided each morning. There were other small touches such as cozy indoor and outdoor seating for relaxing, computers in the lobby and ice cold cucumber water. Parking and check in/out were smooth...and honestly I have nothing but praise for the Ayres hotel and staff! My only regret is that my family and I forgot to leave tips for the cleaning/breakfast staff. THANK YOU AYRES HOTEL!!

This is by far the best stay in a hotel that my wife and I have had in our lives. I previously worked for ARCO as an auditor and I have stayed at hundreds of hotels and this is the most well run, clean, neat well decorated of them all. The staff at this hotel are professional, caring and know how to make the guest feel comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to all my friends and relatives.
