Hilton Orange County / Costa Mesa
Ranked #4 of 23 Hotels in Costa Mesa
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We used this hotel as our base for a quick OC getaway. We were upgraded to executive level which offered snacks in the afternoon and an excellent breakfast. Rooms were nice and quiet. Bed was okay not great (can't all Hilton's use Doubletree beds?)

Staff was friendly. Downstairs bar/lounge area was comfortable to catch a game or relax after a day on the go. Pool area was refreshing but our last summer day was crowded with a group that decided the Palm tree planters were a good diving board.

Good hotel for the rate and enjoyable with an upgrade.

Room Tip: Do not get rooms close to pool if you can.

Dear Spi_kids_LA:

Thank you for taking the time to review the Hilton Orange County Costa Mesa. I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy our new Hilton Serenity Beds, Hilton's most upgraded hotel bed product. Our guests have been very welcoming of the comfort of the bed. I'm so glad you enjoyed the Bristol Palm lounge area and some other amenities the Hilton offers our guests.

Summertime is a great escape for families to enjoy all the area offers and we're so happy to host so many family events from June through August here at Hilton Orange County Costa Mesa. Thank you for letting us know that we need to move some things around at the pool to discourage those not being thoughtful (or even smart) about their conduct in the pool area. I'm sure if the staff had witnessed what you saw or if they'd been told about it, corrective action would have occurred immediately.

Once again, thank you for choosing the Hilton Orange County Costa Mesa.

Sincerely,

Rob A. Gauthier
General Manager

I'm Hilton diamond.... I stayed here a few months back and it was only ok- average.

But being diamond this time I was on the 7th floor and its got a very nice shower. Room overall is above average and it's got a great bathroom.

The normal rooms were just ok. So clearly they need to upgrade the other rooms to this level.

2nd time staying at Costa Mesa and again very pleased with staff & room. Wonderfully quiet room and pleasant amenities. Loved that the door could be opened for natural air and there was lots of dresser space for a 2 week stay.

Dear Carolscarol:

I am so pleased to hear you enjoyed a long stay with us recently and that your guest accommodations were satisfactory. Our guest rooms are considered some of the most spacious, well appointed in the area and the balconies (while not having beautiful Hawaiian views) do offer fresh air and some Californian sunsets that are spectacular.

Our close proximity to so much the area offers-restaurants, shopping, entertainment, beaches, and all the major business centers is an asset our travelers enjoy for business or for leisure.

Once again, thank you for your review and for choosing the Hilton Orange County Costa Mesa.

Mahalo,

great place to stay, friendly, clean, accommodating to large groups. Valet was friendly and helpful and most nights large groups of people went into the bar and stayed late. The staff was more than willing to take care of us and didn't mind the late night noise.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Front desk service was excellent as we left our bankcard at a local restaurant and they went out of their way to help us relocate it. Would definately stay here again!

I had booked a one-night stay several months ago. Even then, only rooms with a single king bed were available. Since I was travelling with a friend, I kept checking to see if any double bedded rooms had become available. I even called the hotel twice with a request to switch to a room with two beds.

Upon checking in, the front desk rep apologized that the hotel was sold out due to the water polo competition and that he couldn't give me a room with two beds. However, he offered us a one bedroom suite that had a hide-a-bed. What a pleasant surprise!

The suite was newly renovated. We especially appreciated the large bathroom that had both a tub and a separate shower stall. The bathtub was nicely laid out with two separate sinks - one near the shower and the second one near the toilet. It was also nice to have another sink in the living room.

Check-in was efficient. The van shuttle service to/from the airport was prompt, and the drivers were friendly and professional. We didn't go to the evening reception in the Executive Lounge and only saw the leftover food being removed, but there were two hot items and a cheese tray. There was also a selection of three different desserts - lemon bar, pecan pie bar, and something else.

The hotel also provides a complimentary shuttle service to the South Coast Mall. Although the shuttle runs only every two hours, it is a relatively short 10-15 minute slow walk to/from the hotel.

We expected only a continental breakfast in the Executive Lounge, but it included scrambled eggs and bacon. The woman in the Lounge was prompt in clearing tables and refilling food. She also brought out some lovely jars of honey upon request.

There is a Japanese supermarket across the street. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to check it out. There are also several dining options in the neighborhood.

We had a flawless stay and would definitely return when we are back in this area.
