The location of this hotel is perfect. Great central spot within walking distance to the mall across the street and a quick Uber ride to anywhere else you want to go. I'm not sure how long ago the room renovations took place, but they are fantastic and beautiful. A nice nice and soft color scheme. If you are looking for...

I normally like Westin hotels. This one is always understaffed at the front desk. Not only do I always see a 5 to minute line at the reception desk BUT the quality of personal are under whelming. So the management does not know how to staff to make this a quality Westin hotel and they certainly don't know how to...

We spent one night at the Westin South Coast Plaza and were very impressed with the room. Amazing shower and seems to have been updated recently. It was raining so we didn't enjoy the pool area but the view of it from our room made it look like a great place to be when the sun's out. Parking was about...

Westin's these days are upper middle grade hotels -- not luxurious, but clean, comfortable, well managed, good service attitudes. The restaurant at this location is nothing special, but there are many good choices in the area, next door (excellent steak house) and at South Coast Plaza shopping center a short walk away. One irritation at this and other Marriott hotels...

What I like about this hotel is the short distance to Irvine, Newport Beach and Costa Mesa but not having to pay the higher rates over the weekend. A great plus is they have a bridge that you can walk right over to South Coast Plaza without having to struggle to find parking if you drove.

Decent location about fifteen minutes from the airport and connected to a high end shopping mall and dining area by a ped bridge over the roadway. The room was spacious, decent view outside, everything worked well. It's either fairly new or has been renovated. No tub in the bathroom (at least in mine), and no executive lounge in this property....

It was an amazing stay. Excellent service and really good location. There’s a bridge connecting the hotel to the South Coast Plaza, a really nice and fancy shopping mall. The room was really comfy, clean and functional (lots of USB docks for charging your devices). Breakfast: was served in the bar. It looks kind of improvised / temporary. The food...

Literally walk across the bridge to South Coast Plaza where you can dine and shop. It is right next to the repertory. Everyone was very pleasant the moment we got to the front door. The front desk personnel are very helpful and great personalities. Assisted me in printing some important documents. The hotel provided a dog bed and feeding bowls...

Oh boy- this hotel is just lovely! The lobby is kind of small, but cozy with inviting decor. The room has just enough space that make you feel like home and be comfortable! Location, location, location! Walking distance (nice short walk! Seriously!!) to the South Coast Plaza where you can spend all your money! :p
