Hotel Decor: 87 Orange County chic with a nautical feel. Outdoor lounge areas make the resort feel spacious
Hotel Amenities: 83 All rooms have an exterior face. There are large spaciious rooms in the tower overlooking Fahion Islan Mall or the golf course and Pacific Ocean. The lower three-story structureshave smaller rooms overlooking the pool areas.
Neighborhood Scene: 80 Fashion Island Mall is a stones throw away and the beaches are a short drive away.
Miscellaneous: The hotel is about 20 miles from the Disneyland resort and is only a $20 cab ride from the Orange County (John Wayne Airport). The Hotel has a very nice restaurant as well.
Overall Wow Factor: 85 Service and a relaxing environment are key factors here. The resort has three pools and is very clean. There are many oudoor lounge areas with outlets in case you need to work but would at least like to feel like you are getting some R&R in. There are water stations throughout with orange wedges. I even went out for a late night swim and when I got to my towel someone had placed a cool glass of water next to my deck chair.
The rooms in the lower structure are small with glass showers but I found them to be all that I needed to relax while staying there for a conference. With palm trees all around and beautiful sunsets you might even be able to trick yourself into thinking that you are in Hawaii. All rooms have a balcony that make the rooms feel larger.
Quiet Swimming Area
I found the resort to be fairly quiet, especially in the non-tower rooms. My room rate was a reasonable $159/nt and I’d especially recommend the resort to Marriott Reward members who are looking for a nice place to spend their weekend.
