Great place to stay

Everything was nice, no complaints other than the hallways having that classic old smell. But it's... See full review

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.

Expected more

The beds were comfortable and the bartender at the pool was nice, other than that I was not impressed. I paid more for this hotel than most of the other ones we stayed at on our trip and I liked the cheap motel 6 better! Tiny bath/shower didn't help make me any happier either!

University Graduation

The location was very close to the airport and UC Irvine, which was very convenient. The room smelled weird and funky. The amenities were good. The hallways were dark and dull. The staff were friendly.

Great Value

We enjoyed our stay. Great price for what we got. The room was spacious, clean and quiet. The bed was very comfortable. Not many TV channels available. The pool area looks perfect for lounging but we did not get a chance to experience. The hotel is within 5 miles of the mall. If we are in the area again we would look to stay at the Atrium.

Beware

Hotel is in need of updating as well as a drastic change in attitude in staff. Staff is very rude and unhelpful. Will not stay at this hotel again.

Probably not my first choice

Stayed in back side. Bathtub a small square. No security bar on patio door. Entry door didn't fit frame and allowed light and noisy from hallway. No security lock on back entrance to our building Water in room in bottle came with a fee. King bed was comfortable and reclining chair was very nice. Lobby and front desk very appealing. .No breakfast bar of any sort. Fee for computer use to verify airline tickets. The most appealing was the location to airport which was located just across the street. Parking fee for vehicle at hotel.
