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.

The pool is well worth the stay

I loved the pool area. Towels rolled and nicely placed on each chair. Loved that it was deep, 9ft. Cabanas are available and furnished with comfortable sofas, chairs and televisions, great addition. Prices at the bar, which included a great menu, were very reasonably priced...try the wings with spicy Asian sauce and cilantro ranch dip. The rooms are comfy and a nice size. The bathroom was the down fall. The shower/toilet room were very cramped and small. The mini bathtub was very cute. More towels would have been nice. I actually wished we planned to stay longer. Will definitely be back. In the past I usually stay at an alternate hotel that serves free happy hour and free customer order breakfast; however, I really enjoyed the layout and pool area of the Atrium and will keep them in mind on my next visit.

Great place to stay

Everything was nice, no complaints other than the hallways having that classic old smell. But it's not bad.

Good stay

Pleasant stay. The overnight curfew for the airport (no planes fly between 11pm and 6 or 7 am)makes it a quiet stay, even though it is across the street from the airport.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The enterprise car rental at the hotel was out of cars, but gave us a discount code for the airport car rental. Since the airport is literally across the street, picking up a car was easy
