Stayed here recently for 4 days so we could discover the OC beaches and also visit Disney.
The hotel is obviously an older property that has been pretty'd up on the outside. You can tell by the hotel room, building and the pool area that it's an older property (which is fine).
Pool area is nice and clean. Rooms are a bit on the small side.
Here are my gripes:
- The bar next to the main restaurant was so LOUD I couldn't hear myself think. Any particular reason you need FOUR flatscreen TVs blasting noise in a small bar with no carpeting etc is beyond me. I didn't even stay to order a drink.
- This is a big conference hotel. I felt like I was almost in the way half the time of conference delegates racing around from lobby to outside and back.
- The huge central atrium (which all rooms surround) is used for conferences and functions including microphone/speakers/loud music. There's not escape from the noise.
- Biggest gripe: one night they had live music playing until 11pm....OUTSIDE. We couldn't get to sleep until well after midnight as our child was so upset.
I'm all for live music but keep it inside where noise can be contained.
It's a nice hotel but it's nothing amazing. Proximity to Fashion Island is obviously a plus.
