I liked the fact that it was so close to the OC Fair grounds. And also I like the serviceand attention the staff provided. n/a
I enjoyed how peaceful and quiete the stay was. No microwave available in room.
The staff was helpful and business like. Kathleen and the cook were the most friendly people We've ever met. Even though we were the only ones there for dinner, we were treated like royalty. The room was spacious and clean.
It was located just across the OC Fairgrounds which very convenient ifuring the fair. It is also easily accessible near the H73 and H55. Also close to all the beaches (Huntington, Newport and Laguna) and shopping malls. Some rooms are too close to the backyard parking. Breakfast has no fruits !!!!!!!!!!
Big bedroom Location: literally on the highway. Breakfast not as good
they were always helpful. Convenient location. Complete breakfast. Big rooms. It should be a 4 * hotel
I usually only stay at Best Westerns. But after my experience at the Newport Mesa Inn I never want to go again. Basically got kicked out of continental breakfast because we had a service dog, even though I let them know and asked questions when I checked in the night before. Couldn't even get one glass of juice without being stopped and asked to leave "the common area" because people complained. Really? A couple complaints within a minute? We walked in minding our own business and our dog was quiet in our own arms, beahving perfectly fine. And for those ignorant people's information, we purposely got a small, hypoallergenic nonshedding dog so it would be less inconvenient, especially for those with allergies. Maybe you can at least bother to ask us some questions before just asking us to leave. So we check to see if we can at least sit outside, but that area is occupied by people smoking. So they seriously want us to eat our breakfast outside in the smoking area? And we can't take it to our room either? It says, "The ADA mandates that the service dog and handler have access to all public places. This is the law." So is the hotel and their "common area" not a public place? "Businesses may not: Refuse admittance, isolate, segregate, or treat this person less favorably than other patrons." I'm so angry even as I'm typing this, because it just reminds me what annoying trouble we went through. I have never had this problem at hotels until today. I have half a mind of suing these people, or taking it up to corporate. We came to celebrate my fiancé's birthday and our anniversary, but we left feeling degraded, and our day in Newport was ruined. Thanks Best Western.
Close to the venue we had to attend
I would highly recommend this hotel. Great location near freeways, shops, beaches. Great facilities and staff. Would stay again.
Location- however- think about driving a longer distance than staying close- The food was processed and bad- the hotel was old, bathrooms were dingy- floors dirty- sad the call it an ok hotel. The air didn't work- and the manager said it did- how about the customer is right???? It was just a place to set out heads! Nothing more- ohhhh and ice machine sucke as well-
Clean, comfortable rooms. Laundry facilities if I wanted to do my own laundry. Cleaning service if I wanted that. Very professional Staff.
Helpful and cheerful staff. Clean room. Comfortable bed. Few restaurants in walking distance.
The place is awesome and we really enjoyed it The place is 5stars but the service and the employees are 0 stare
Much better than the Ritz @ Laguna Nigel or Montage. Outstanding service
Beautiful resort! Loved our room. Food was amazing! Love the boutique on site. Front desk was great. Had an early check in. Staff overall was very slow and not to experienced when it came to bellman and room service. Every time we called for something we sat on hold for a period of time. Then when we left the resort i couldn't see out of my car windows. I had hard water spots all over my beautiful clean mercedes. The sprinklers covered my car and when i asked the valet to help with windex they looked at me like I was crazy.
EVERYTHING was Amazing. The view, service, room service, amenities and the room was perferct We loved everything
the views and the bungalow room was great food service (both in room and at the pool lunch) was slow, inaccurate and not as expected. although the food quality was very good.
Proximity to beach. Stayed facing the street side and it was loud.
Nothing I started my period during the night and got a little blood on the sheets and they charged my credit card $150 without even telling me for "damage" to the room. It was extremely offensive and I will never stay here again. I am NOT happy.
We live in fullerton and stayed here in Newport and loved it. The beach was great. It was detached enough to not be too close to the very loud Newport area further south. Overall great trip.
Very friendly check in. Location for shopping and business meeting was good. Parking fees were comped after reporting an issue with our room not being cleaned during one of the days of our stay. Room had an odor. Room was not cleaned during one of the days as we were missed according to their schedule as a result of having our privacy sign on the door until about 10:00 am. When reported to the front desk, the room was cleaned and we were comped for our parking fees. Parking is $10.00 which we were fully aware of but we question why the extra charge. Our room was located right next to the elevator which we could hear continually. We did not ask for a room change but the next time we book a room that will be one of my requests to not be near an elevator.
$19 charge per day for guest parking.
Could not enjoy anything because of the parking fee. Mandatory $18 parking fee for all paying guests. What a trap. There is no excuse for a scam like that.
The room was great. The bed was super comfortable. Food at the restaurant was delicious and the servers were fun and friendly. Not too happy that we had to pay for overnight parking- I feel there should have been some sort of compensation for this as a guest. Perhaps free breakfast?
It was clean No refrigerator or microwave
The lobby was very clean and the staff were very friendly. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. My only negative comment would be that the carpert needed to be cleaned in the room. Everything else in the hotel was so clean that the dirty carpet in the room stood out. But this was very minor and should not deter anyone from staying here.
Doubles Tree by Hilton Hotel Irvine meet all of our needs. The staff is very courteous!!!
My first encounter was the best impression ever. I believe her name is Mika. She was outstanding and with a warm smile to boot. Very attentive to detail and she was prompt. Excellent job.
I love the Area and the building and its surroundings
It was clean, upper scale, and was treated well.
We paid $158 per night plus taxes and $20 per night self parking. It was convenient, clean, and comfortable. Front door staff and housekeeping were helpful and friendly.
Loved that I was able to do early check in and was offered complimentary late check out. Enjoyed the elegant atmosphere. The heated pool was our favorite. Walking distance to dinner and to the mall to do some shopping. Parking was a bit expensive $27.00 to be exact.
Location. Starbucks inside hotel. Great bath amenities. There was one issue with the bedding upon arrival. Other than that, was a very nice experience.
Maids never knocked, great black out curtains Had a 5 night stay and everything was perfect Nothing Unless they wanted me to get a free stay ????
Just steps away from the Segerstrom Theatre and across the street from South Coast Plaza. Well kept, friendly and knowledgeable staff. The room was very comfortable and quiet. We enjoyed the entire experience. There wasn't anything we didn't like.
Love the incentive to forgo Housekeeping daily in exchange $5 voucher. Some aspects seemed a little dates (ie the elevator, room furniture).
The staff at Check in was not exactly accommodating to the people in line. The gentlemen behind the counter was having a conversation about non work related subjects with a guest, although claiming it to be hotel and check in related, while we stood in line for 15-20 minutes. For a 4 star hotel, the check in process was not that of a 4 star rating. The check in process is more of a 1 star.
Breakfast excellent. Free Internet. Good location. Parts of the hotel could do with updating.
Manager on site was very rude and unfriendly ! He never apologized for his behavior nor did he offer a solution
Very clean, room with internet and service attendants were excellent. The food was very good. Ciomplement the fitness center with more options than what was available.
Quite for relaxation Nothing I can think off.
I had a small issue with the room i was in however the staff was very nice and accomadating didnt give me a hard time about changing rooms. Nice hotel great staff no complaints.
Location There was no desk. It is uncomfortable to work from a raised counter. The bed could be better. The ants in the parking lot engulfed my car.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Location was great. The Starbucks and 7-11 next door was also awesome. Room lacked a desk and chair which was annoying.
The best thing was the location and price was desirable. The overall feel of the hotel was unclean. My children identified dirty linens immediately. My wife also recognized heavily stained linen. We chose to sleep on top on the linens and shower elsewhere. I Would not recommend this place.
Not a thing. Very dirty outside and inside the rooms. Some non smoking rooms smelled like smoke. Ash trays just outside the doors of non smoking rooms. Mattresses stacked up by the dumpsters. It says breakfast included..instant coffee and granola bars is not breakfast
Nothing. Nasty coffee and dollar store muffins are the free breakfast. The bedding was what you would get from the goodwill. Sketchy characters loitering outside.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Location. Bathroom was a disaster- toilet didn't flush, shower had a massive leak and sink didn't drain. Had to use another room to use the restroom.
There is no designated breakfast area. If the hotel could expand its breakfast cuisine and provide a breakfast area, that would be beneficial.
Hotel looks nothing like the pictures. And the continental breakfast is a joke
Nothing Wifi never worked although several attempts with staff to fix issue Executive lounge sub par Room sub par Parking charge per day too expensive
The restaurant service was the worst service I have ever experienced in 35 years of travelling to the USA. The waiter at breakfast on both mornings was the worst I have had anywhere in the world.Despite complaining on the first morning the service was the same the next day
veronica was very helpful showing my wife and i the wayto the pool she went out of her way to help us when i booked breakfast buffet was included when i arrived and try to get our voucher for breakfast the desk said it was not included this added 100 more dollars to my stay so all in all it was not a great deal
Close to the mall. No clean rooms available upon arrival. It took 40min waiting in the lobby to get a room that was already reserved.
Desk attendants were very courteous. I wish I was told that the hotel would charge for parking, per day.
Parking fee and having to pay for internet.
Outdated, $18 daily parking fee
Allows dogs, modern furnishings, no fee for parking, near airport Pool was closed. $75 dog cleaning fee.
Good location. Building is older and you can hear all the neighbors and noise at night.
Room was very nice and spacious - (disclaimer: i never stayed at a hilton hotel before) i paid quite a bit for the hotel and parking already but you have to pay for wifi separately per night. They also overcharged me (which they did get corrected). They sent me an email later as a followup, but the email had lots of typos and syntax errors. Looks unprofessional for a classy place.
Young man who checked us in was increadable, great young man
The hotel was recently remodeled so the interior is clean and brand new.
Nice, clean place. Good restaurant. Friendly staff. The $18 parking charge was unpleasant. Other hotels in same area don't charge this. The walls are very thin and if you are a light sleeper, will suffer.
Everything about the hotel was really really good. It is such a good value for the money. The beds were very comfortable the room was very clean and the staff was very friendly wouldn't hesitate to stay there again anytime.
I'm a Pastor and I asked for a 1pm checkout due to a wedding ceremony I was performing in Huntington Beach at 4pm. Initially I was told no problem. I called on Saturday morning to confirm and my request was denied. Staff did not apologize, offer any solutions and I was very disappointed.
The room was very large and very comfortable. The facilities were very clean and aesthetically pleasing, although I was unable to spend much time there due to a business conference I was attending. I read good things about the restaurant, however, was unable to check it out for the same reasons. I was given the opportunity to check-in before noon and to request additional towels, both of which I selected. However, upon arrival I was told that I was unable to check-in early AND that, even if possible, it would cost an additional $40. Furthermore, I did not receive additional towels. So, my question became, why even offer these things if you're not going to provide them upon request.
I didn't like much. My experience was horrible here. We were lied to by the staff. Due to their lies, we ended up stranded at the event we were attending. We booked this hotel specifically for the free shuttle, and even made sure of times and venue location that it would all work out. Well, it didn't and the customer service desk did NOTHING to resolve. What an awful experience! I will never stay there again!
liked the restaurant in the courtyard There were large bugs in our bathroom -- unacceptable
the location was the best part of this hotel stay and it had a full kitchen, as well as the location being close to where we had to be. At first when we got there @ about almost midnight there was a complaint about the noise and the worker was not really worried about his complaint so that worried me...then when we checked in she gave us the wrong room on the wrong floor making a long night even longer...the breakfast was not the best, if you are a cold person you should take more blankets
Got a great deal great location! Be prepared for the $30 parking fee.
We booked a single King. We got a tiny room with two double beds. Said they were out of Kings. Said they don't guarantee requests for online bookings. We were very disappointed. They did move us the second night but there was a constant banging noise in the vent so we couldn't sleep. We were treated like second class boarders. Parking is $32 a night with no option. The breakfast was not up to Fairmont standards. We will not stay there again.
Quiet room, good gym, nice pool area, friendly staff. Limited food options (restaurant closed for lunch on Saturday), mediocre TV reception (channels and quality), room looked a bit tired.
$32 for parking! My god.
Mattress was comfy. No self parking option. Valet $32 but half price for hybrid vehicles.
The bathroom was great and the bed was very comfortable. The restaurant was just fair.
The rooms need to be updated.
Below average service Room had a weird smell. Asked reception to change my room and they said that they couldnt. They told me that I would need to upgrade and pay the price difference. Cleaning service were cleaning empty rooms at 10 pm while we were trying to sleep. 32$ parking per night in an area where it should be free. Better options out there. Definitely not returning.
The staff was very friendly and they surprised us a an anniversary treat!! The room was beautiful and the bed was super comfy! Valet is mandatory and quite expensive!
$32/night mandatory valet parking is ridiculous. Other than that, nice place.
Clean an beautiful room I did not like paying $32 to valet our car for one night
It was all very beautiful, nice comfortable bed. Everything seems nice, new, and fresh. Amazing internet speed. Seems very executive. No where nearby will have free or cheap parking. I paid $30 bucks for parking overnight and $20 for wifi. Room was decently priced, but it was so fancy i didn't want to take the complimentary soaps just incase they'd charge me for that too.
Breakfast, view, accessible! Great deal for the money! Pool was kind of shabby, needed upgrade. Very difficult to get in n out of bathtub for showering!
Location,location. Aliso Viejo beach is always our destination beach, when we go into the laguna area. Very convenient location. We were a little worried when we arrived to our front hotel room, to find it was right next to the breakfast area. It actually turned out to be a perfect location, woke up and strolled right next door to eat. Food was great! Great access into the city after breakfast. No complaints, will definitely be back.
I love the location and the room. I did not like that no one informed me that paying for beach-side view would include the 7am wake up from street construction crew that was directly below me. Jackhammers going at 8am which at that point I decided to not extend my stay and check out! If I had known I would have never even stayed there in the first place!!!
Location was amazing and price was great. Pool, breakfast and view was our favorite. Our room was on the first floor and when we walked in we noticed it was damp in the room. Then we noticed that our room was half underground. So we figured for 1 night, with the location and price that we would just deal with it. Later that night after going out for cocktails and dinner we came back into the room to find that it was still really damp like an old basement even with the air conditioning on high for hours. After reading all the ridiculous rules and instructions about the whirlpool we got in to find out non of the controls worked so it was an all or nothing experience. Hours later in the middle of the night I awoke to the air conditioning make loud noises. In the morning I found that the carpet around the whirlpool was wet due to some kind of leak from the water closet. Also no air conditioning in the bathroom. All and all the place was very nice but they didn't offer any discount or anything for our experience. *don't stay on the first floor.
The parking structure is excellent in an area that's hard to park. The location, even though it's a bit south from the action is good. The views from the room and deck are also great. The room is plenty spacious and well layed out. Would stay again. The staff is so, so. Erin was great and gave us an upgrade which we are grateful for. But other staff were not so helpful. The air conditioner is either on or off. If you set a temperature, it simply ignores it. I tried to get it fixed with no result. I was told that all air conditioners work that way. I needed some ice and finally found it on the third floor. The machine was out of order with a sign that says to use the one on the second floor. The layout is difficult to say the least. When I couldn't find it, I asked the front desk where it would be and was told that's in the garage and the entry is through the second floor. Enough said.
Great staff, hotel and overall experience. Very well maintained. Clean and they pay attention to the little things. The staff went out of their way to make sure our stay was great. We will defiantly be staying there again next trip without a doubt. The one thing that stood out to me immediately was the doors to the rooms.. they were structured in a way to be secure, safe and worry free when you left the room. A little pricy, but honestly you get your money's worth.
Roomy suite with good beds. Waffle station and Mon-Weds Happy Hour with beer, wine, and decent hors d'oeuvres. Not super clean. Quick surface clean looks good but refrigerator smells (ice maker makes un-usable ice). Dishes not clean - Rewash everything. If you don't see it, it probably hasn't been cleaned in a while.
Room was very nice. We appreciated having breakfast available included in our nightly fee.
I really like the feeling of home away from home in this hotel. With the exception of Brenda who is a bit arrogant with a bad attitude, the front desk staff are amazing and accommodating. Fantastic amenities like free washer and dryer, practically a mini grocery store on your honor that you can pay for or have charged to your room. Plenty of parking, relatively quiet and laid back atmosphere. The kitchens are fully stocked with not only the basics but also measuring cup, mixing bowls, extra pot with lid, ceramic cooktop et cetera. All linens are upscale and clean with no stains and not one rouge dark hair (I am blonde) anywhere. Bed had over stuffed sheepskin like mattress cover that was very comfortable. One last thing that is always very important to me... I didn't have to wash my feet before getting into bed, not ever! Now that is clean. Even with all of the amenities I have listed that I like this is after all a 2-star Hotel and it is a bit overpriced. Further, the 20 percent discount offered through RetailMeNot and other reputable sites of the like, are not accepted at all. I could get no break off the daily rate ever. 2 hours on the phone with IHG and it is still a mystery. Counting on that discount is what finalized my decision to stay here while searching for an apartment. Now I'm just further in debt. my feeling on that is a bait and switch which is the fault of the corporation not the facility. I am currently staying on top of my complaint. The shower head is definitely in need of some maintenance to clear out the hard water so the water flows. On only a few occasions I was disturbed by the loud speaking housekeepers outside my door as well as the banging and hitting the walls while cleaning the room next to me. They need to realize that sometimes people work late and sleep late. For the price it should be respected.
The grounds, the staff was friendly and helpful, bed was comfy, pool area and 24 hour marketplace were very nice. Paying for parking, odd odor on the different floors, no cold water, half-closed shower door.
We loved our room with a view. Even though the hotel was busy with dance competition and softball teams, our room was quiet and service was great. We will definitely be back soon!
I liked the pool, room size, little market downstairs with reasonable prices, location to where I was going and the feel of the hotel. There is a mini refrigerator that you can fill up. I like the concept, instead of an overpriced minibar. The front desk was confused as to when breakfast ended. (We were told 8am which is ridiculous, but it was actually 9:30.) we missed a few days due to thinking we missed it. The carpet and little features could be updated, but for the most part it was clean. We would stay again.
Impressive, grand entry, airily quick check-in, comfortable beds, clean shower Music at the bar was so loud you couldn't hold a conversation. In addition the check-in attendant never told me details, such check-out time or that a continental breakfast was included ( I had to ask the next morning). They seemed rushed and ready for the next customer. Another issue was non-smoking on a designated non-smoking floor. I smelled smoke as I slept and saw butts on the carpet in the hallway. Lastly, breakfast was limited to toast, cold cereal, yogurt, and hard-boiled eggs.
Comfort No room service Weird shower stall that is made so its hard to reach handles
TOO LARGE THROUGHT IT WAS A BOUTIQU
I stayed a long weekend here with my friend and the lovely people at hotel Irvine really made us feel like welcome guests! From the complimentary bikes, to the Friday night movie on the lawn, to the friendly and delightful staff, every minute here was relaxing and stress-free. My friend has severe food allergies which the staff graciously and professionally worked arround for her. It really meant a lot to be able to enjoy my mini-vacation knowing that everything we needed was being taken care of. Thank you so much!
Good hotel, excellent location. Clean and comfortable. The music in the lobby is a bit loud.
The hotel is centrally located and six minutes from the airport, making it a great choice if you've an early morning departure or late night arrival. Our room was very quiet. The Marketplace was great for snacks and provided a good selection of tasty foods. The staff was friendly and the bed comfortable. The parking fee of $22-24 per night seems excessive for a suburb like Irvine which is pretty much made of concrete, shopping malls and parking lots. The sink drain didn't work properly, one of my pet peeves in a hotel in any price category and unexpected in this type of hotel.
I had a problem with another room being extremely loud and disruptive,, the front desk and security took care of the situation, quickly. Also, the GM comped my valet charges...still not what I expected from a hotel like this.
Loved the market place and the Dj at the bar in the evenings!
Pool was great! Lots of space and fun games around the pool. Rooms were nice, good breakfast and fun bar/lounge
Clean facilities, comfortable bed and free drinks Expected larger suite for the high price. Few amenities close by
Staff were great! Love the great breakfast. Great location. Clean and comfortable. We will return! Honestly everything was great!
The staff was very helpful. Our truck did not fit in the parking garage so they made sure there was a spot for us in the short term parking lot for our whole stay. Very friendly helpful staff. Complementary breakfast was perfect way to start our day. Clean nice sized rooms. The location of the hotel was close to everything! Newport Beach, Huntington Beach and balboa all 20-30 min away. Dinning and activities for the family only 7-10 min away. Great hotel!!
Complimentary breakfast, snacks in the evening along with a two hour complimentary beer and mixed drink happy hour free for all. Complimentary shuttle to the very close airport. 7 miles from the beach a running trail about a mile from the hotel that goes all the way to the beach. Shuttle delivered me to my office within the 3 mile max radius. Staff helped with a mildly exceptional request of providing me with a screw driver from maintenance so I could repair my luggage. The key card opens doors with proximity so I could keep my key in my wallet and put my wallet next to the sensor. I should have complained about the heat / air vent. Watching TV it was fine but going to bed it was just loud enough that I slept with a pillow on both sides of my head. Oh and after the two hour happy hour the prices for drinks become a bit unreasonable an interesting strategy they have.
The room was nice. Clean. Comfortable. Parking is an extra $15 ridiculous. Room service dishes sat outside of rooms all day kinda gross. Maid service asked if we were gone yet way before check out kinda rude. 3 candy bars cost us $9 way too expensive
The room was big! The pub area was a fun, breakfast and managers cocktail/snack time are always a plus. Gym was small, but worked for my needs. Laundry facility was kind of janky, just one chair, maybe a TV or more than one chair or something would help.
I mostly try and stay at Embassy Suites when I travel. This hotel was clean, friendly staff and great accommodations. Parking at $15 dollars a day seems a little excessive. Other than the parking everything else was good.
Nice, just recently renovated hotel rooms. Everything was in pristine condition. Comfortable beds, good breakfast (made to order eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, fruit, cereal etc). Housekeeping woke us up at 8:00 am. Not happy about that. Also pillows are not that good.
Could hear the service elevator from my room went until late at night and started early in the morning. Loud squeal and banging doors made it impossible to sleep. The front desk offered no help they said it should stop by 11:00 pm which it did not and they did not tell me it would start again at 6:00 am.
Nice hotel, good service, comfortable beds, great breakfast Hotel is doing construction and they gave us a room directly under the floor they were working on. To their credit they did stop working at a reasonable time and did not start working till 9am.
Great overall experience Paying for parking
Most everything was perfect We would have much preferred to be on the same floor as family we were with!!! We made reservations at least 2-3 weeks prior and requested 2 rooms together. Thankfully we were with young adult and 2 teenagers that could be on different floor but it was u settling and inconvenient
Great location They are doing 'renovation' so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt but the hotel just seemed 'tired' Rooms are very small. Rooftop deck is great but super crowded and we were never able to get a table in the evenings
Loved the location. Also very friendly staff and included buffet breakfast was nice. Room was very small and dark. While it was clean, the carpet was old/ dingy.
quaint and cozy and a great location room was a bit small
Charm and the outstanding staff None.
every hotel staff is friendly! beach access! free parking, free breakfast small bathroom
Bizarrely decorated room (room had been redone recently) that made me feel like I was in medieval times. Weird. Breakfast was good and the hostess there was very friendly. IT IS SO LOUD I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT! To get to my room, I had to walk by the public men's and ladies rooms which patrons of the very loud and busy bar use. 15 people waiting in line, blocking the hallway, and at one point, someone vomited. Not pleasant.
Location to beach. Safe and fridge in room. Great hotel staff--very friendly. Fabulous hot breakfast--great food w fresh fruit, crispy bacon & hot coffee. Room was hot. They provided a portable ac but it didn't work & was extremely loud. After replacing it twice, the 3rd unit worked. Used ear plugs & cover our heads w pillows to get any sleep! I will never stay on 1st floor again!

Pool The Ocean View Room was not Really an Ocean view. We had to spend a lot more to get a slight view of ocean.
Swimming pool and sea view were so beautiful the room is a little small
Suite at the Montage was fantastic with views to die for - great property with paths to the beach. The room had a comfortable bed, plenty of closet space, the room was made up at night with turn down service - overall one of our favorite places of all time, ever! Food items a little pricy ($100+) for 2 omelets and Belgium waffles for breakfast and while we like nice places to stay we often find that the "high end" food is a little too gourmet for our tastes and we found ourselves not eating on the property after the first day.
