The Hilton Irvine/Orange County Airport owns a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award from 2013 for many reasons, including its lake-like pool, awe-inspiring Crystal Ballroom, and breakfast-serving terrace. The hotel is far more than just a stop-over for John Wayne/Orange County Airport (SNA). Like other Hilton hotels, it's big on business provisions, with a free wireless Internet center email or web-surfing, a 24-hour fitness room, and even an on-site tennis court. Dine in Californian style, with menu highlights like calamari and bay scallops, at the Aura Bar & Grill, finishing up with a martini on the patio.

Neighborhood
Facing John Wayne Airport, a complimentary shuttle service is provided to and from the Hilton Hotel Orange County. Plenty of guests come here to attend functions at one of the nearby universities; both Pepperdine University's Irvine Graduate Campus and UC Irvine's North Campus are situated less than a mile from the hotel. The Irvine area is home to some solid eateries, like El Torito Grill (Mexican) as well as the big-brand stores at Irvine Spectrum, like Anthropologie and Levi's.
Hints and tips
The Hilton Irvine/Orange County Airport is situated so close to the airport that many of its rooms overlook the runway. If you want to watch the planes get prepared for use - or you have kids that do - make sure to ask if any rooms on that side of the hotel are available.

All accommodation is sound-proofed, so guests never need to worry about earplugs.

Business trip

Hotel comfort is great, I was charged for parking and breakfast...went through Or*%t$ and would have been nice to disclose these things openly so there's no guess work on what to expect. don't rent a car through Or*%t$ either if your company is paying for the trip....not worth the unexpected expenses.

Loved the Hotel but...

The hotel itself is great! The only problem I had was that when I tried checking in before noon for my mother because I could not come back to check with her and my children... the hotel did allow for me to place my credit card but rooms were not available. Which was fine because I knew check in is at 3pm. I let my mother know that I had paid for a double and to make sure she would get one. My mother checked in after 4:30 and she was given a King... She called me to let me know of the situation and I was not happy being that I planned to arrive late in the evening. I called the hotel and the hotel said they were completely booked and that my 3rd party indeed had booked a king and not a double. And unfortunately its a third party so they were not able to do anything for me. I was able to contact the 3rd party 2 days later and said that on there side they booked a double! Again unfortunately the hotel cleans their hands with saying sorry you booked through a 3rd party. Again I loved the hotel and my family enjoyed our time there!

NO SOAP!

There was no soap in the room at late check-in. I was given an apology and a complimentary bar of soap in the morning at check-out.

Good location

If you are a business traveler this is a great location since it is just across the street from the airport. It's not the nicest Hilton you'll stay in, but it is clean and convenient
