My husband and I stayed here to get seriously great sleep after leaving our baby overnight with the grandparents for the first time ever. That was the primary reason. First, instead of one king bed there were 2 double beds. It was smaller than our Queen sized bed at home and shorter too. I am not tall and my feet... More

Upon checking in late Thanksgiving evening we were assigned a room on the third floor. There was a very noisy fan sound coming from the bathroom, I think. After trying to get to sleep for about an hour and a half, I dressed and went to the front desk. Maintenance was called and a gentleman arrived but could not fix... More

The staff here is commendable, extremely personable and friendly at every level. Beautiful grounds and walking paths, check-in staff gave me a handy guide to the paths and surrounding area. I love this location! Fifteen minutes to Laguna Beach, and a minute to the Dana Harbor for whale watching tour. I thought the bed was too soft for me, other... More

This property offers exceptional service from the time your arrive to departure! Our experience started by being warmly greeted at check in.

We are coming to this hotel for 15 years, coming several times a year. So far I loved it - or should I say loved it once?

I was invited to a meeting at this property- needed to come in the night before. I am not a frequent guest of Marriott, so I was pleasantly surprised at the stunning water front views, friendly staff and good food at the meeting. I stayed in room 209 which faced the water, and the lawn. Very quiet. Rooms were negotiated... More

Nice hotel although a bit pricey. Parking is $30 per day on top of a daily resort fee! Makes the price per night of the room pretty crazy! Large hotel with many weddings going on during the weekend.
