We booked this hotel for last Sat. night, due to its proximity to the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater (to see Journey [!!!] & the Steve Miller Band). It is very close, about 6 miles so it made it very convenient. And it's also very very close to the Irvine Spectrum, where you have a plethora of dining and shopping options.
The hotel itself was very clean and no complaints about the room, with the exception of the A/C, which like another reviewer commented, could use some updating. When we set the thermostat at 69 (which we did when we walked into the room because it was stifling), after a few minutes, felt like it reached 69 degrees in a hurry. So we turned it up to 76 degrees.. which then became too hot. So we left it at 70 degrees the entire stay. Yes, it did get chilly at night but that what the blankets are for. I'd rather be too cold and curl up in a blanket than be too hot when I'm trying to
The other "weird" part was the concierge service. When we asked them for suggestions as to a good place to grab a bite before we headed to the show, it felt like they were trying to sell us a vacation timeshare. I appreciated their eagerness to help, but it felt a bit overboard.
Overall, I wouldn't mind staying here again. Well, the $18/day to self-park seemed just a smidge overpriced but not a deal breaker.
