not a busy hubbub hotel with a crowded noisy and sterile lobby. instead, its relaxing, quiet and comfortably homey. Good appointments in the room.

This is the second time I have stayed in this hotel. Now I have stayed in both buildungs. I was pleasantly surprised with being able to charge my electric car free of charge. I also enjoyed the jacuzzi size tub in our room this time. The bed was very comfortable.

Pros: its quite and clean
Cons: Customer Service
Overall is pleasing but I feel it is just a bit to pricey for its location because its not that close to the beach area. Me and my girlfriend enjoyed the stay, we mainly relaxed went out for dinner and drinks. We were able to get an Uber for around $12 to do things in downtown Newport Beach area. Also hotel staff customer service okay, did not really help me out in telling me what the hotel had to offer. I had to ask a lot of questions for simple things that should be mentioned as soon as a person checks in.

Everything was outstanding except the king mattress that my wife and I slept on. Both of us woke multiple times throughout the night and I woke up in the morning with lower back pain. The hotel was super clean, the service was excellent, and the pool be it small was fun and quiet. I would stay here again and just hope for a better mattress.

This was a really nice hotel. Great area with running trail nearby. The only issue was that the two gyms were very small, but made it work.

The staffs were great. They offer a shuttle to the airport for free. The hotel looks nice and the room was great. Someone else was taking a shower in a different room that was probably right above my room. The noise woke me up in the middle in the middle of night. That scared me bit. Otherwise, it was great!

Pros: Clean bed and close to everything
Cons: nothing
Location: Little Saigon is nearby. Newport Beach is closest. Also, we went to Huntington Beach and Laguna beach. All close by.
This is a very clean hotel! It is about 15 minutes from the beaches and about 15 minutes to Little Saigon. Close to everything! The rooms were clean and beds were washed everyday. It was perfect.
