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.

Disgruntled vacationer

All I can is their customer service was terrible. The guy who helped us out was not friendly at all. I did not feel welcome into the hotel. Also, it would've been nice to include that parking is not free. Overall, I was not happy with the service. It also seemed like the hotel was too overpriced.

Comfy room rude check in

The bed was comfortable, but the front desk staff was rude, the valet was way more helpful and a nicer person.

What you see is NOT what you get!

Beware, the pictures shown of the hotel room looks very different from the actual room. The actual room we stayed in was very old, worn out and outdated with little air circulation.

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!
