The first hotel built near the Orange County Airport (John Wayne Airport - SNA) in the 1960s, Atrium Hotel Orange County Airport was originally known as "The Airporter", evolving into today's chic hangout, spilling over with water fountains and lush with native greenery. The business facilities are impressive - a 700-capacity event space and seven meeting suites, from boardroom to poolside. Guests can ease any travel stress away at the Ilum poolside lounge, with its outdoor sofas and intimate cabanas, sipping a Cosmopolitan in the California sun. As the air cools in the evening, sample some of Chef Chris Reischl's global menu, from the Far East to Continental Europe, at Waterfalls restaurant.
Location
Across the road from the airport in the Irvine Business District, Atrium Hotel Orange County Airport is minutes away from the Irvine Business Complex and just off the San Diego Freeway. To the south is San Diego Creek, which twists and turns its way out to the famous surf haven of Newport Beach. If you're looking for shopping options, the South Coast Plaza's luxury stores and boutiques are less than two miles down the road. The Plaza is also the place to go for delicacies like the roasted crabs at AnQi Bistro.

For the quietest stay, book a room away from the pool, since there is often poolside entertainment by the cabanas in the evening-though of course, you could to the opposite and join in the fun.

Workcation

my review is a mixed one based on my experience.I feel like some of the staff was great like the male staff at front desk and the manager.I had a bit of a bad experience.I had asked to be put in a quiet room and was placed near the exit door which is never quiet.When I finally decided to sleep I pulled back the sheets and there was black hairs all over the sheets.I then tried the other bed and it too had black hairs all over.The sheets smelled of body odor and the pillow smelled of body fluids.When I told the night shift lady about it she rudely ask me how long I had already been in the room.I was like who cares it's obviously a health code violation.After arguing for a minute she then switched me to a better room that was clean in a quiet area.I also found out from manager they do not use bleach on sheets.As far as I know that is the safest way to kill bacteria and germs.I was beyond irritated with how some of the staff treated me and found there customer service to be awful.

disappointing

The room was dirty. Even the door had gressey finger prints all over it like it was NEVER washed and they had all kinds of hidden fees for parking. The guest book was outdated so I went down for dinner at 9:25, kichen was closing at 930. The book said 10pm. All the restaurant times were incorrect, and I was taken by valet and dropped off at a restaurant that didnt have an entre for under $32 and teh food was terrible. I had to ask repeatedly for towels, and toiletries, and after complaining, I was finally given a breakfast coupon which was also sub par. The manager gossopped loudly about the waitstaff and the foos was cold, dry and of little flavor. Information said 7 miles to the beach, it was 17 mmiles. I was very disappointed by the entire experience

Business Trip

My business cards were shipped to the hotel, they didn't give them to me while I was there. It was a mix up on their end, and had the nerve to not want to pay for them to be shipped back to when I returned home! The rooms were horrible, decor and the smell in the hall ways was like a spoiled wet mop. Only thing nice about the hotel is the outside and by the pool area. Other than that run in the opposite direction when looking at this place. The staff is incompetent and not helpful at all.

This place has friendly staff and a great outside bar next to the pool.

I've stayed her about 4 times. It is the preferred hotel when I am in OC. It is conveniently located with an awesome outdoor bar area which is opened most nights until 10am. The staff is great. The rooms a bit dated, but you can not beat the price. It is close to the airport, freeways and shopping.

I was excited about this trip until check in, it took 30 mins for the staff to find my email confirmation. At check out it took another 25 mins for valet to get to me worn my vehicle. The hotel has God potential, but wasn't organized on my stay.

I was in town for a second part of a program that's an intensive 13 hours a day for 3 days. I thought the staff was quite friendly & helpful! My only two amenities I would of liked is a option to have a frig & some type of continental breakfast. All in all it was a great hotel for the cost.

great hotel

I love this hotel mainly because of the beautiful pool area. The rooms and beds are very comfortable and at a reasonable price. Paying $12 to park each day is ridiculous though
