the next time my family and i go to SoCal, i will definitely consider staying at this hotel first. it almost feels like a home away from home.

I've love this place. The people and the accommodations are always great.

The staff was very friendly. The area and hotel was clean, neat and safe. The breakfast was outstanding.

MUCH better than comparable chains. We had to drive from S Francisco to Orange Co for a memorial service. Long drive, not a "fun trip." We are working, lively, active, well-travelled, professional and urban -- not traveling with kids, so didn't have those needs. We're well familiar with all the usual "Courtyard," etc. type of chain hotels, which are adequate and usually cheerless and grim. This hotel was similar -- but just done better. Very nice and cheerful staff (singing in the kitchen at breakfast amongst themselves.) As this hotel caters mostly to biz travellers, the weekend rate was v. good. Room was huge, clean, nice colors, large bathroom. Unexpectedly nice towels. Comfy bed and linens. Drawbacks: the sink/mirror and closet were all behind the same door as the toilet and shower...which, er, creates a certain "awkwardness" even if you're fine w/ putting on makeup while your husband is showering! Also, the elevator was a bit wonky, didn't want to "accept" what we pushed -- required a bit of messing with it. Didn't have time to use pool (in shade in winter afternoons; wouldn't matter during a lot of the very hot year in that area). I did use the fitness room -- 3 or 4 new running machines, a bicycle (2?), free and pulley-weights, yoga mats. All in good repair, room clean. Hotel was very quiet -- so I was v surprised to see how many cars were in the lots! Never saw anyone except 6-10 people at breakfast.

I had a one day getaway with my boyfriend. We enjoyed our stay there to begin with the room smelled great. That was the first impression I got. I didn't quite observe everything else in detail. However the location was great, looked clean. I didn't feel there was anything that i had to complain about. Also had the buffet which was surprisingly delicious. I also enjoyed that fact that we were given extra time to checkout. I would definitely come back. Only sad part I did not get to enjoy spa because they closed to early for me.

I loved the ambiance. Only thing that sucks, is that the hotel doesn't have its own parking lot

The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. The hot breakfast was a way nice to start the day. The placement of the coffee and juice bar was awkward.....should have a separate location for each. The staff was welcoming, friendly and helpful.
