We upgraded to a suite and really enjoyed lounging in the immaculately cleaned room while watching movies on one of our two flat screen TVs from the very comfortable king-sized bed. After some discussion, my partner and I agree that the bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds we have slept on and far exceeded the quality of the beds at the other Fairmont properties we have stayed at over the years. The staff really went above and beyond in their treatment--from the valet who always remembered our names to the front desk representative who made sure we got the room we wanted and promptly notified us when it was ready. The exercise room wasn't as small as reported in another review and we were able to complete a full workout , but it would have been better if there were heavier free weights (I believe it stopped at 50lbs) There is a nice lounge area and the buffet at the restaurant looked amazing. We did have some water issues in our room - sometimes the hot water wouldn't go on for a few minutes and would periodically change temperature. I highly recommend this property for its excellent service, comfortable rooms, and great location -only minutes from Fashion Island and blocks from the Orange County Airport.
