“Pleasant stay, friendly staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

My husband and I went to Newport Beach last weekend for a seminar. We stayed at the Marriott as the location was very close to our meeting. The person who checked us in was very professional and also gave us information about the restaurants, bar and Starbucks located in the lobby. The room was small from average and the bathroom was really small and the ceiling very low (my fingers could actually touch the ceiling whent trying to hang the towel over the shower curtain bar). But other than that, the room worked well. The fitness room is small but has equipment for a nice workout. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant and the menu is very limited. Our room rate included breakfast which was totally worth it. They offer breakfast buffet or you can order from the menu as well. The staff is very friendly. Parking shows at $19 per day but we got a parking pass and we got charged $12 per day instead. Wifi is free in the lobby.

The term you get what you pay for is painfully obvious with this property. It looks like it has not been touched since it was built. The wallpaper is peeling off the walls as you walk down the dreary ill lit hallways. The rooms are decent and the one thing I will say is that at least the beds and pillows are good so I slept well but overall the hotel is in need of a refresh. The other interesting thing was that this property was BUZZING with people. I do not think they were prepared for the traffic the days I was there. There were so many people the staff was having a tough time keeping up. We ended up borrowing the bellman's cart and taking it to our room as the wait was too long. We called the front desk and told them we left the cart outside of our room and when we woke up in the morning it was still there as was another one floor down by the elevator. The elevators are a little scary - quite abrupt and jumpy. Overall, not BAD, not dirty, just outdated and needed more staff to accommodate the number of people. PS note to kitchen, the food was good but in general let people add salt to their own food IF it NEEDS it. That should not be the first thing I taste when I bit into my food.

Room Tip: Although this hotel is situated right next to a freeway, I did not HEAR the traffic at all which was...

The hotel has a prime location and a glorious view of an expansive landscape from the room that I had. The hotel was flexible and courteous with the early check-in and late check-out request that I made in advance. The staff was extremely prompt with any requirements and very efficient. The fitness centre and swimming pool are well equipped with an eye for detail. They had fruits as well as disinfected headphones in the gym!

The hotel provides complimentary shuttle service to the airport as well as nearby shopping centres. There is free wi-fi in the lobby. While it doesn't have a gala spread for breakfast / lunch, there are enough options in the room service menu as well as the on-site facilities (including Starbucks).The bed was truly comfortable and ample parking space. It provides good value for money.

In summary, it was a pleasant business hotel experience.

I stayed one night for a business trip, and the location was very convenient for both airport and local business campuses.

Front desk staff are very professional and warm, just the right blend of business and personality. All the public areas were well maintained, in good decorative order and very clean.

Room was quiet, very clean, and comfortable - I had a good nights sleep. It's the usual pleasant "corporate inoffensive" style of decor, but all in very good condition and well maintained.

We had a meeting breakfast on site which was our only chance to try the dining facilities. The breakfast buffet was well stocked and offered good choices between continental or cooked to order - prices a little high if you're not used to the area. Staff were very pleasant and capable throughout.

Overall a comfortable and easy stay.

I reserved a block of rooms at the Marriott Irvine for my son's wedding. We had a wonderful experience from start to finish. The hotel is great, the rooms very clean and the staff extremely helpful. They directed us to nearby (walking distance) restaurants and were very friendly. Kim C., the event assistant couldn't have been more helpful. She made sure we had everything we needed. At our request, she put all of our guests on the same floor and even called a couple of times after our arrival to check on us. I had welcome bags for the arriving guests and the front desk staff gladly took care of passing them out as each one checked in. I highly recommend this Marriott!

Marriot does a good job in all their hotels. This hotel is not within walking distance of anything but is good for conferences and meetings. Great pool and gym and a basketball court. Decent stay in OC

The Marriott in Irvine truly caters to the travelers needs. We had several special requests. All were greeted with a smile and a willingness to help. The breakfast wasn't great (it wasn't bad either) but that was the only issue we had during our three day stay.
