“Quick Stayaway”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

My family needed to attend a birthday party at The Hanford Hotel at Costa Mesa, CA and needed a place to stay for the night for we are going to Disneyland the next day and do not want to drive over for the night. I don't want to spend a fortune either for a very quick stay. So I decided to use Priceline for $50 (plus taxes around $70) on a Friday Weekend was a DEAL! (first time though to use the site and to bid for a hotel) which I find cool and exciting plus the savings can't be beat!We arrived at the hotel around 6 PM. We checked in (a breeze), change oufits and head to Costa Mesa. We came back around 11 PM and parking was a bit thight (if you opt for self parking which cost $16/night/car./Valet is $21).The room is huge, big flat screen TV, 2 double beds (they are very comfy!), coffee maker, NO FRIDGE/MICRO which is a bummer, probably extra if you want to , or book a specific room with those included, nice expensive toiletries, (wifey said its topnotch, but forgot the brand though , Sorry, ). Our View was the parking lot, but its ok, we did not stay on the property/room for the longest time, but its a quiet area/part of the hotel. No noise from the airport ).Lobby was nice looking, they do have breakfast buffet at the lobby though but did not hesitate to ask how much, I heard if you're a HILTON HONORS GOLD member and book directly on their website or 1800 number , you might get a complimentary breakfast and in-room wifi which will cost you $11.99/night. I am a Hilton Honors BLUE member and I book it somewhere so I don't qualify for anything (point and perks!). Oh, one more thing, they will put a $50 hold on your card for incidentals on top of the $16/parking. The pool is humungous! (which we did not have time to explore). They have a tennis court. They do offer shuttle within 3 miles radius and Airport Shuttle which by the way is just over the other side of the street (you can literally walk). I guess that's all. Hope this helps.

Room Tip: Rooms on the side of the hotel facing the parking lot (beside another Hotel) is quiet.

Let me first say that this hotel had a High End Stereo show during the 3 days I stayed here and they had several thousand visiters. This was the reason I was here and they were very busy and much busier than normal. Check in was very fast and no line at all. I was extremely impressed by the professionalism and courtesy of the front desk people. They always bent over backwards to try and accomodate me and they deserve a pat on the back.

I was upgraded to a room on the executive level (Gold VIP Member) although it just looked like a standard room to me. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. The air conditioner worked very well. This hotel was across the street from the airport but I really never noticed the noise. My only real complaint about this hotel was with the restauarant. On one of the lunch buffets I got a late start and had one plate of food and started to get a second plate and they had already removed all of the food. They should have stopped allowing new people to access the buffet and kept the food on the table longer. The service here was almost non-existant during my entire stay. You were very lucky to have a waiter come by your table even once.

I also think they need to make some bartender changes. The bartender has no personality whatsover and was not friendly at all. With all of this being said, I would imagine under normal circumstances, your service would be much better. The food was average overall. Next door at the Atrium they have a very good restaurant and I had a very good Halibut meal. I would return to this hotel and because of the excellent front desk experience I'm rating them 4 stars instead of 3.

Thank you for sharing your experience with Trip Advisor. "The Show" home audio conference was definitely not an ordinary weekend for the hotel. There were as many as 5000 attendees which definitely made it a little more difficult in the restaurant to keep up. That being said, we are very happy to hear you enjoyed your overall stay.

We thank you for being our guest and look forward to having join us for next year's event.

The two of us were attending T.H.E. Show and hadn't realized that the live entertainment on the patio afterward was one of my favorite vocalists. We decided to make an evening of it and were extremely fortunate that Mary McKinney was the one to help us book a room. It's funny how one person can so well-represent the word hospitality that a weekend spent less than a couple of hours from home can truly feel like a getaway. Our room was perfect: the temperature, the linens, the decor, the room service. Life is short, but we're making the most of it!

Thank you for sharing your experience at the Hilton Irvine with Trip Advisor. This past weekend was definitely a great time to stay at the Hilton Irvine and visit Irvine. We were fortunate enough to host "The SHOW", which is definitely one of the Best Home Audio Visual shows of the year. We are happy to hear Mary McKinney, our Director of Rooms, was able to find you the perfect room for the perfect event.

We are glad you enjoyed your weekend and "The SHOW". We look forward to your next visit to the Hilton Irvine.

Thank you for sharing your positive experience at the Hilton Irvine. Just across from the newly expanded John Wayne Airport, the Hilton Irvine offers the best location when visiting the Irvine area for either business or pleasure. We are happy to hear our staff provided a memorable guest experience. As you mention, our convenient location to John Wayne Airport does bring along with it some airport noise. Fortunately, this is mostly just an issue during the day or early evening as John Wayne Airport does close nightly at 10pm.

Thank you being our guest. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Hilton Irvine in the future.

Booked with Priceline for Memorial Day weekend. Check in was a breeze, thanks to Miguel, who not only provided us with excellent service at the desk, but great follow up as well. Beds and pillows are amazing, widescreen was great. But those noisy toilets...didn't notice them until about 3 a.m. when someone above us flushed...why are they so noisy? Other than the loud plumbing, the hotel is great!

Another hilton one that need some refreshing to do, overall an OK hotell. A big plus for the outdoor pool in the back. The breakfast are ok as a business guest 20 Dollar, but not maybe for a private visit. Like the shuttle that goes to the shopping mall "Fashion Island", i was ther in business and my wife went shopping during the day. The surroundings to have some pretty ok restaruants. Very safe and clean area.

I had an occasion requiring me to stay nearly a month at the Hilton Hotel in Irvine. With heated pool and tennis court, I could have stayed another month. The staff are overly nice and professional. Breakfasts come with home-made omelet’s too! Due to my length of stay, I was thinking of switching to another hotel just for variety… no way as the hotel was simply too nice to leave.
