I stayed here before flying out of SNA, which is right across the street. It's just far enough away that you'll need to take the shuttle, and just close enough to be tempted to walk. Stick with the shuttle.
I had a great check in experience, though it seems some people have stuggled with this. The hotel has recently gotten a facelift, and it now looks fresh. The requesite flat panel TVs are in place, and all the usual Hilton room features. The hotel design is modern and updated, almost trendy, but it's obvious to anyone who stays in a lot of older hotels that this is an older property that got a major redo. But, it wasn't a complete gut and start new project. With that said, most won't notice this. It's waaaaaay better than it used to be.
The parking situation is still a little iffy, but because you're across from the airport, it can't be avoided. You may have to search for a parking spot. My advice is to return your rental car first, then take the shuttle over to the airport if you are staying the night before a flight. Same thing if you are driving in and flying out. Park at the airport, take the shuttle over to the Hilton, rather than parking at Hilton. It may cost more, but it's worth it.
