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.

Convenient to the airport

When I first arrived, the room had a strange mildew/mold smell about it, which got better after I turned the air conditioner on to air the stuffy room out. There was no refrigerator or microwave and no table, just a bed and a desk. The parking cost $12.00 a day and the free breakfast, which is nothing much to speak of, wasn't free. You either had to have a "Free breakfast Coupon" or pay for the breakfast they offer. The Atrium Hotel is certainly functional if you don't plan on doing anything more than staying one or two nights and are on a business trip.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

The hotel does have a restaurant, but if you don't want to pay their prices, you have to drive at least 3 miles to find something else or to have a variety of choices.

Front desk man

The stay was exactly what we needed. The pool was nice and the front desk man hooked us up with a great pool room view. Breakfast was not your ordinary continental carb loader. It was well balanced.

Poolside bar with cabana shelters

Great for a family get-together. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. My only negatives were that the room was past-due for remodeling, and the carpet in the room and the halls smelled like heavily perfumed carpet cleaner.

great photography hidden fees..

The room was stuffy and dated... Not at all like it appeared online.. there is a $25 dollar a day charge to park at the hotel... Which once you add that in makes it comparable in price to the other places that are a little nicer.. the staff I will say were all very friendly..
