As always, I have to preface this by saying I got a great rate through Priceline. The downside is that they charge $20 a night for parking. Even with that extra charge, it was a good deal. The room is pretty basic, but it was very clean and the carpet felt great under my bare feet. The beds, though definitely... More

This is our second stay here in the last couple of years. It is a good all-round hotel. Great bed, and they change the sheets every day, quite a large and well-maintained room, decent service (especially on the front desk) and a nice bar area. You can get Starbucks coffee and basics downstairs. Bathrooms need remodelling, but they are clean... More

Just a short walk to a beautiful mall with plenty of stores and restaurants. Self parking is somewhat inconvenient since its off to the side. Hotel staff was very helpful and service was great. There's a beautiful waterfall just outside the bar area. If not busy it's a great area to relax. I would definitely stay here again.

I'm a fan of Westin hotels in general but this one is always on point. I stayed here Feb 2011 and found the room beautiful & comfortable, and always like the toiletries in the bathroom.

This looked like a nice hotel, we planned to stay there for 2 nights to explore the area. It was clean, comfy but you had to pay for parking each night, then they wanted $12 per day for the use of the internet.

Excellent location. Right off the freeway and a short walk away from the south coast plaza mall which has stores ranging from sears to Louis V. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Bathrooms are out dated but overall a great hotel and value.
