I've probably stayed at this hotel 30 times over the last six or seven years. He lobby was remodeled about five years ago and it is pretty nice. There are nice amenities and a fountain that adds to the ambiance, but the location is the best thing about this hotel. It is located 10minutes north of John Wayne (Orange County)...

This hotel is an average hotel with poor service. The rooms are good and they were clean. The bar area was good but the food over priced for " bar food". The real issue is that there is very little service especially since the price of the hotel is very high. There are lots of other hotels in the are...

We stayed here one night for a wedding at the hotel. The room and parts of the hotel were a bit worn and dated (especially the bathroom), but our room was clean and comfortable. All of the staff were friendly and we were able to check in early (around 1pm) to get ready for the wedding, which was a plus....

A friend and I stayed at this property using SPG points. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The offered my friend the choice of an extra amenity with her stay: a drink at the bar, extra SPG points, or free internet. I still find it unbelievable that Starwood properties charge for internet service in the rooms. We...

A detailed statement of the problems and issues encountered has been forwarded to Westin Hotels Headquarters. Suffice it here to say that this property did not meet minimum expectations. The desk staff, while courteous, was uncaring and did nothing to resolve the major issue (which could have been easily resolved by changing our room). I will stay at a competitor...

I hosted a 30-40 person event here over several days and had a great experience. The accommodations were very good, the staff was always helpful, friendly and cheerful. The catered food was excellent. I got lots of positive feedback from the attendees. My only criticism is that there is only one restaurant in the hotel. While it was a good...

I was extremely pleased with this hotel. The staff was superb. The room was quite large and very comfortable. The hotel is expensive,but it is in a very upscale area. It is well worth the cost.The restaurant was excellent. I look forward to my next visit.

Stayed here last week on a pleasure trip (graduate school reunion with some friends). Very friendly front desk with easy check-in. A pricey stay but understandably so. I would suggest to all hotels at this price level that a cell-phone, laptop and Ipad charger be part of the in-room work desk setup. These devices are ubiquitous and most travelers forget...

I stay here quite frequently and its an adequate hotel. The building is old, probably early 80s and while reskinned still not up to Westin quality. Bathrooms (tubs) are old (and they have those gross rubber safety mats) with the old 1980s ceramic tiles but they put the new Westin Elements brand square shower head with hand shower. The bathrooms...
