As a business traveller inusually stay for 3 nights. I am disappointed the French restaurant they had there previously has been closed down with no replaycement put in place. The...

Great proximity to the mall (overpass connecting) and within walking vicinity to a number of restaurants and things to do. Room service was standard - nothing to write home about here Room qualities were spacious, though the washrooms were smaller than I would have liked. Clean and relatively updated. Swimming pool was well maintained and not too busy the times...

I've been happily spending Thanksgiving at this hotel for over three years now. My family is far away so I look forward to Thanksgiving room service and a movie, then walking to the mall on Black Friday. They've updated the showers, but the rooms are getting old (but still nice, except for the filthy windows (there was also a dead...

Stayed here for two nights over the Thanksgiving holiday and loved it! The rooms were clean, the food was delicious (including drinks), shuttle service to/from the airport was great and checkin-checkout was a breeze. But what really set this hotel over the top for us was the true Westin customer service - the service here was top notch! The shuttle...

This Westin is beautiful. Perfect contemporary decor, an elegant lobby, beautifully-appointed, spacious rooms. This is a very good value. Did not eat here, but there is a Starbucks in the lobby (with breakfast food), which I love, so you're not "trapped" by the hotel's usually expensive and limited dining options. Pool deck is fabulous- warm, saltwater pool; tons of space...

Right off the 405 and a 15 minute drive to most business locations this is a road warriors go to spot. Very functional, no frills, no fuss, and none the worse for it. Water Grill restaurant next door is an OC staple and worth the steep prices. Talking of steep .. valet parking is $32 + tip.. sour taste. Breakfast...

We travel very often to the Costa Mesa area. My wife attends a lot of trade shows that are held at the Orange County Fairgrounds throughout the year. We have tried many hotels in the Costa Mesa area during these many visits and they were basically "hit or miss", mostly "misses". Well, we finally found a true "hit". From now...

An organization that I worked with held a conference there. Rooms and meeting space --well planned and laid out. Breakfast and catered food was terrible and the restaurant inside the hotel is limited.
