It's hard for me to put my finger on why I had such a bad feeling about this place. Maybe it's just that Orange County is the creepiest place on earth. The hotel is nice enough--new and clean and self-consciously swanky. The kind of place where they subtly remind you all the time that you're supposed to be tipping them, and where they act surprised if you want to walk to a convenience store. Seriously, the nearest store is a gas station a mile away. There is nothing within walking distance except for a couple of restaurants and a ballroom dance studio. The bar at the hotel is a pretty nice place to hang out with colleagues. The buffet breakfast is good. The fitness room was under construction so I didn't get to use it, but the pool is large (although not a good shape for lap swimming!) and there's a hot tub. I asked for a late check-out and they gave it to me BUT they did not tell the maid, who came barging into my room while I was trying to get some sleep. I would not choose to stay here again, but the conference I was at paid for it. A lot of my complaints could probably be chalked up to my allergy to Orange County culture.
