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.

Neighborhood
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.
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.
Policies and Fees
  • Self-parking fee is $14 USD per day per vehicle, with in/out privileges.

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

the stay was okay but not memorable. Good economy deal but you must drive out of the area to find things to do

Basic but good for the price

I would stay here again. Only cons were that you have to pay for parking and that the hotel is far from everything except for the airport.

Entertainment tip: In Hotel

You can catch a shuttle to Disney Land from the Airport across the street by calling Prime Time Shuttle service (they are great and reasonably priced) The Atrium hotel shuttle gets you to the airport within 5 minutes.

One night stay

Cool hotel with a Palm Springs 50's vibe, right across John Wayne airport. Can't really say more about it since we just booked one night to sleep off a holiday party. Late check out is at 1:00 pm.

Room furnishings very old

I think our travel company must have been assigned the oldest rooms in the complex. Most furniture piece were nicked and damaged. There was only one chair [for 2 people??]. We requested a second and received it. One of the lights by the bedside had a burned out bulb. Our room was at the very back of the complex and the 2 room card/keys didn't work and TWICE we had to return to the desk to have them re-keyed. And finally a technician had to work on the lock. When we wanted to report the burned out light bulb the phone were not working. The lobby and reception and pool areas all still look very appealing but the room was a disapointment. This is a 3rd stay in this hotel mostly because of the location. But it may be our last.

Short business trip

Atrium was in a great location for a great price. The atrium area is a beautiful atmosphere. It was quiet, clean, and the room service was fast.

Good Location

Excellent place to stay if you are going to fly out or into John Wayne. It is an older hotel with old rooms, doors, shower, alarm clock, etc... and you can hear everything in the hallway. However it is a pretty good value.
