“Fine for what it is”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

The hotel is located in essentially a commercial center, surrounded by office buildings with a shopping center across the street. Valet parking and self parking are available; for the extra $8 go for the valet, since the self parking lot seemed quite a distance away.

The room was a very nice size, with a balcony view of a golf course and, in the distance, the ocean. The bathroom, however, was disappointingly small. For example, the shower door opened and just missed the toilet by inches. The room and bath were spotless.

Entrance to all of the rooms is via an outdoors walkway. While the room was quiet, you could hear most of the people outside, which was a bit disturbing.

Directly across the street from the hotel is a very large, somewhat upscale shopping center. There are a number of restaurants and lots of interesting (but mostly chain) stores, which provides a nice change of pace.

Overall a nice place if you are in this part of the world for business or perhaps passing through the area.

Room Tip: Top floor gets the best views.

THis is a remarkable tho' somewhat strange hotel. It seems to derive most of its revenue from either Qantas tech crews or convention attendees. not withstanding that our two days were enjoyable and we were regaled with Southern Californian hospitality. My brother, the Q captain who flew us (and 340 of his closest friends) to LA possibly made the experience all the better but the hotel delivered all he promised. The spa massage was great and the location far enough from the beach to be private but close enough for us to hit a couple of very good seafood restaurants, The proximity to Fashion Island was a two edged sword!

Room Tip: get a beach view

We have always been big fans of Southern California - but when we found this resort in the OC we just keep coming back. The resort offers 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villas with a full kitchen (fully equipped), living room and dining room. 3 HD TV's with excellent cable options plus a DVD player and balcony. Location is great - Newport Beach to the right, Laguna to the left. Less than an hour drive from LAX. Close to great shopping - Fashion Island and South Coast Plaza. Disneyland about 25 minutes away. Balboa Peninsula and Catalina Island easily accessible. And that's stuff to do if you don't want to hang at the beautiful resort's pools. It's such beautiful property. Highly recommend !!!!

Upsides - (i) gorgeous views of Newport Beach; (ii) reasonably priced; (iii) very close to Fashion Island. For me, downsides were - (i) no room service between 11pm and 6am (not fun if you're travelling from another country and your body is in the wrong time zone & you're ready for breakfast at 5am); & (ii) bed was past its best days (big lump in the centre of the bed); (iii) spa is closed on Tuesdays.

Rooms are comfortable, valets are great, perfect location with walking distance to Fashion Island for shopping and dining. This hotel is pretty basic, rooms are on the small side. I was busy during the day working so I was really only in the room for sleeping and showering. The conference area is nice with outdoor sitting areas. Food provided in the conference was full of healthy options.
