I was in Santa Ana for 2 weeks on a business trip. Lorrie was the bartender in the lobby area as you walk in.

We had two others that weren't even 1/12th as great as she was. Victor...

I stayed 2 nights from 12/29 and 12/30 2016. I was greeted by very friendly front desk staff although they did not recognize me as a IGH member. My first impression of the lobby was a good one, there is a very small pantry to purchase some basic toiletries and such. There is a bar lounge / restaurant just off...
