The first hotel built near the Orange County Airport (John Wayne Airport - SNA) in the 1960s, the Atrium Hotel 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.

Neighborhood
Across the road from the airport in the Irvine Business District, the Atrium Hotel 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.
Hints and tips
Take advantage of the hotel's free shuttle to and from the airport, which can work out cheaper than parking if you're not traveling around the wider area by car.

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.

And the 3rd floor crickets?

Chose the property due to the less expensive nature of other properties around--and determined that the less expensive price was due to the fact that they were also renting the rooms to crickets to make up the difference in the nightly rate.

My Worse vacation I ever had!

This hotel is so old and nasty. I got sick the minute I walked in to the room. I could not breath or stop sneezing and coughing. The room stunk so bad. I changed my room three times. The third room was little cleaner and better. I would never stay at this hotel ever again. The only advantage this hotel has is they are located next to the SNA airport.

very nice accommodations next to the Orange County Airport.

I needed a place to stay by the airport. its close and they have a shuttle. The serendipity was that I had an Enterprise rental car I was trying to figure out how to return and budget the time but it turned out that the hotel WAS the Enterprise rental location and all I had to do was driop the key in a slot... even saved the $12 parking fee. I had no complaints about the hotel whatsoever and it seemed like a very nice pool lounging area in the courtyard that I did not take advantage of.

Good Business Traveler Location

The hotel is very conviently located near the airport - well within walking distance, which is perfect if your business is at the airport itself. The hotel was clean and has good restaurant facilities available. Internet access was good. I did not use the shuttle service because I walked to and from the airport, but I got the impression they did not run at regular times which might be a problem if you had to get to the airport quickly.

A Quick Relaxing Hide Away

Staff were all friendly and helpful. Rooms needs more updating but the grounds (pool area outdoor bar) were really nice and relaxing. Cool points for the heated cabanas. Don't location (across from the airport) fool you. The planes come in from a different direction so you hear no airplane traffic.

room vs hotel

hotel lobby/pool substantially better than halls/rooms. internet never did work during 3 days stay. Price reasonable for what you get, so if internet and fancy room not key, good value
