“Excellent venue for business trip - fabulous staff!!”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

I echo everything that michellemoore2792 said. EVERYONE at this hotel has bent over backward to make my trip pleasant. I was here on training for a new position, coming from the Washington DC area, and will definitely return to this hotel as opposed to another just for the quality of "care" they have.

South Coast was pretty impressive. It's Christmas time and they had a really beautiful display surrounding Santa....worthy of pictures! Ate at Zeda's, I think it was, right at the main entrance. Pretty good food, good service from a young guy named Matt.

The evening front desk people were super friendly also. They went above and beyond helping with my flight arrangements, printing my boarding pass, etc. They also set me up on two occasions with taxis from a company owned by a gentleman named Sam. Rafi, one of his drivers, (from Lebanon), was awesome and personable. Also a gentleman from Greece - cant recall his name. Easy ride and fair price.

Can't comment on the pool...never made it there, but the workout facility on the second floor was more than adequate- clean, towels and rarely busy.

Tiffany's restaurant was a huge surprise! I don't usually expect much from a hotel restaurant. Again, I echo Michelle....Jose and all the waitstaff were totally attentive and helpful. Food arrived within a really good amount of time and was delicious!!!!! Couldn't believe it! Far exceeded my expectation. Do not drink, so didn't not experience either bar, thought indie peek my head in.

I'd say that people wouldn't stay here to go to the beach. It isn't all that close, but this is a reasonably priced hotel with SUPERIOR service.

The staff were the friendliest people ever and helped us with tasks such as ordering take out Chinese food and the cheapest way to get to Disneyland. The beds had a 'sleep number' device so u could tailor your bed to your liking. The free shuttles to the airport and south coast plaza were always prompt and the drivers always pleasant. It is not close to the beach but the staff are more than happy to arrange taxi's for you. Disneyland is pretty close too, and if you want to get there it is so easy to get the free shuttle to the airport and a shuttle there to take you right outside Disneyland for $10 each, so much cheaper than a taxi. The hotel restaurant buffet was wonderful, they even purchased strawberry jam because we asked for some and they didn't have any. If you do eat at 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' look out for Jose the waiter, the nicest man ever. The hotel pool was clean and there were always enough towels. Overall best hotel we've ever stayed at and can't wait to go back.

The breakfast trays are left all day (until at least 11pm) in the corridor for all to see. It's disgusting but I'm also pretty sure it's against a few regulations.
I got my free newspaper one day out of the 5 and had to call in every single night to get my breakfast card for the following day.
Service is great and food is good too. Beds are comfortable (but the sleep number thing doesn't work).

As others had identified within their reviews, do not be fooled by the title. The location could be in the next county, it is SO far away from the beach, in fact so far away from anything other than business parks. We was unfortunate to have stayed here over a weekend so relied heavily on the hire car to get us to civilisation. That was the first drawback.
The second was how tired the owners/chain had allowed this hotel to become. The fabric flowers were a giveaway, however as we progressed to our room and opened the door, our hearts sank. We were so excited due to the big milestone birthday impending, however the room, in fact the whole hotel was a let down.

-Noisy ice machine kept us awake most of the night.
-Bar on the ground floor provided with inattentive staff and lacking in some of our orders.
-Pool area unappealing (not too sure how they got the photos to look so good).

This really isn't a tourist hotel and our fault for not doing the research. Its best left for conferences and others who are not paying for the rooms. The staff, whilst pleasant, did not represent what we experienced in other hotels during our extended trip to the States.
Summary: Avoid and look elsewhere.

Hotel stay was decent...I wouldn't pay too much there are plenty of other nearby hotels. It's convenient for a stay where you will need to come from or to airport. It's about a 20 minute or so drive from beach, not that convenient unless you have your own car. Would stay again only if it were the least expensive price compare to other comparable hotels.

This hotel is located right across from the John Wayne Airport (SNA). It is clean, welcoming, and comfortable. The doorman greeted us very professionally and we were checked in quickly at the front counter.

The hotel gives you a parking pass to hang on your rearview mirror so my husband went back out to do that while I brought some stuff to the hotel room first.

We enjoyed our stay!

I represent a non-profit agency which selected this hotel for a three-day national conference. The decision to use this hotel was made easy from our first meeting with the staff.. Nothing could be more assuring of a positive experience than the message we received on our initial contact. We want your business and we will do what it takes to get it. In the months prior to our conference the special events staff did everything to live by that message. They were promptly and politely responsive to every call and every email. They accommodated all our needs in the planning process and were available throughout the three days of the event. Setting up for a national conference takes organization and many helping hands, but each step of the way, every staff person we encountered greeted us with a smile and "can I help you with anything?" Our conference guests enjoyed three banquet events at the hotel. All meals were delicious, attractively presented and professionally served. Hotel rooms, meeting rooms and banquet spaces were attractive and comfortable. Private dining in the hotel was also an affordable and highly satisfactory option. Pricing for this event was the most reasonable of all the options we explored. Our conference guests expressed not a single dissatisfaction to us. Quality overall exceeded our expectations.
