I've stayed at this hotel twice, most recently in March of 2013. It's got all the basics of a good hotel experience: it is clean, comfortable, quiet (at least during my stays), safe. Internet access was okay in terms of speed, for about $12 a day. The staff were nice and helpful, but I didn't need to interact with them much.
The weather when I visited didn't lend itself much to use the pool, but it looked nice.
There is a Sam and Harry's in the premises that you can use for your immediate dining needs.
The hotel has a definite resort-like feel to it, which suffers a bit when you don't have resort-like weather. The feel of the place is a bit cheaper than other Marriott's that don't go for the resort experience.
The hotel also suffers from being in a 'blah' suburban location. The only meaningful place you can walk to is the Fashion Island mall across the street, which tends to have high-end stores, none with a particular local flavor (e.g., you won't find any UC Irvine shirts there).
