“Great business hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Stayed here 3 nights while traveling for business. Rooms were clean & comfortable. Quiet hotel convenient to John Wayne Airport. Staff was very friendly & helpful. Loved that they had a Starbucks on site. Nice hotel for the price - I will stay here again when I'm in town.

Other than being charged for self parking...& they tried to charge us for (2) days when we had a vehicle for only one, everything about our stay was perfect. We were delivering a car to our grandson, driving over and flying home.
If other guests are lucky, they will be served dinner (our party of 12) by Andrea and while waiting for the next airport shuttle, asked for input on our stay & be welcomed to return sometime by your Guest Service Manager - Stacey Pierce-Girssom...a consumate professional.

Room Tip: Get on the "Executive" floor (#7).

I attended the recent hotel event to get a look at the newly updated Executive Lounge and new guest rooms. The hotel looks amazing! I had a wonderful time at the event as well!

My company uses this hotel exclusively and we are very happy with the service and our folks really enjoy their stays!

The hotel is nice. I stayed on the 7th floor or executive floor. It was nice the bathrooms are above average for a business hotel. It is not a vacation type hotel. The internet speed is above average. Room service is good. TV remote is a pain and the pillows are not very good. Overall though it was good for what I needed

The Hilton Orange County/Costa Mesa has the unique advantage of being ideally located in close proximity to so much Orange County offers guests, whether traveling into the area for business or leisure.

We hope to see you back again very soon and thank you once again!

I don't know if my rate here was lower than "usual," but it was very reasonable. My room was very nice and the public spaces are also welcoming, comfortable, and attractive. Although the group I was with had to eat dinner pretty late one night (10 p.m.), the bar staff handled it well and did a great job. Front desk folks were very professional and helpful, too. All in all, it was a good stay and I'd definitely come here again if/when I'm looking for a business hotel near the O.C. Airport.

I stayed at this hotel recently for three days as part of a large conference. I must say that everything was wonderful! First of all, the staff was so professional and friendly, very accommodating, helpful, and happy! The rooms are big and nicely furnished, including a refrigerator. This hotel has great meeting rooms and facilities for large groups and the wait staff was efficient and friendly even when serving several hundred people. The food was good and plentiful. There is a Starbucks in the lobby for a quick breakfast or a full restaurant. South Coast Plaza is walking distance for both dining and shopping. I found this hotel so comfortable that I would recommend that my group come back again next year.
