Nice remodel
Reviewed 2 days ago

I have visited this hotel a couple times, it’s formerly the Duke hotel, a new remodel of the grounds and rooms is bringing good change to this place, it might go to weekend get away, The suites in this hotel are especially nice, very spacious with all the amenities you could’ve won in a four-star hotel, pool and spa are very nice and always improving, if you are looking for a quick orange county beach getaway, this is a good spot to do it.

Great 4 Star Hotel
Reviewed 1 week ago

I stayed one night before a local event, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with my stay.

They greeted me with a refreshing drink, which is unusual for a 4 star Hotel. The lobby space is open and engaging.

My room was big for a 4 Star Hotel. It had nice accessories and all that you would want. It was very hot that weekend, but the air conditioning was super good.

The bell service was very good. They also have a shuttle that will take you anywhere within 5 miles which was useful for those trips that were too close for Uber. And it was right on time.

I ordered room service for breakfast, and the food was very good. They gave me a time that it would be delivered, and they beat the time. The staff was courteous as was all the staff during my stay.

Check out was quick and easy.

No complaints and a good option if you are looking for a full service above standard hotel. Well done!

Beautiful Renovation!
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This hotel is a true hidden gem and only moments from the John Wayne/Santa Ana/Orange Airport (depending on what you call the airport..😁). It is currently under renovations but the loud noises stop at night. The hotel and rooms are superb! Photos never do justice. It is going to be amazing when they are done. I was in one of the newly renovated rooms on the seventh floor. Room service is great and still served traditional style on a tray (I love) and not in a to go container (do not love). The only item I would recommend that they make sure to upgrade is the gym. They need more treadmills but otherwise the gym is nice and overlooks the pool on the third floor. The flooring is the best part! No more dark carpet. Yippee!!! I will be back!!!

First stay and will be the last
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I guess I should have already knew when I initially call to confirm my reservation at this hotel that my stay will go not as plan. I called to confirm my reservation, and the front desk agent was nothing but RUDE and COLD. When Yurina picked up the phone she was not only cold but condescending from the moment she opened her mouth. It made me felt like I was interrupting her time and that she was having a bad day. Here's the other part- After checking in, my room's trash bin still have trash in it from the previous stay. I called the front desk and their response was "Oh, let me send up housekeeping, was there anything else I may do for you" I was shocked. There was no APOLOGY. I was shocked from the respond I got after reporting that there was trash left from prior guest. I still let that go. I was in a hurry to check out next morning so I didn't bother stopping by the front desk and after looking at my bill the next day, I realized I was charged more than what I booked it. I tried calling the front desk and they transfer me to accounting. Till this day (7/3/18 and I stayed on 6/23/18 , I still have NOT gotten a call back from accounting). If you want 5 stars service, you better look elsewhere.

Nicely Renovated and Comfortable
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I spent 4 nights here in one of the newly renovated rooms on the 7th floor (be sure to ask for a renovated room). Jenny at the front desk made checking in easy. There is a frig in the room to keep your water cool, and the A/C works well, but is a bit noisy if the unit is on auto. (If your room is on the west side, be sure to close the black-out curtains to keep the hot sun out of the room, and also lower the room temperature a couple of degrees when you go out for dinner, so it will be coming down to your sleeping temperature while you are gone.) One of the nice improvements they made that I appreciated is a lighted filigree around the mirror in the bathroom that serves as a nightlight, so you don't have to leave the bathroom lights all on. The bed is comfortable, and so are the pillows.

I did not visit the restaurant, but had a Caesar-type salad at the bar one night. I have to say I can't recommend it. It was made with the bottom 2-3 inches of romaine lettuce, actually the part I usually cut off and throw away because it can be bitter. The dressing was not very flavorful. The only good thing were the white anchovies (if you like anchovies). They do offer a nice red wine blend, called "Anyone Seen Kay."

The pool area is large, and the pool a good size. The complimentary shuttle to the airport leaves every 30 minutes, and only takes a few minutes.
