Rated 4 out of 5 by travel3049 Right across from South Coast Plaza
If you want to go shopping this is the place to stay. You can walk right across the street to the mall. The room was clean. I am a platinum member I was upgraded which is always nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

I was very pleased with the food and the hotel staff. I was most pleased with the attention we received. Special commendation to Osvaldo-the staff member assigned to us and to Tina, the conference services person. Excellent!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DavidChicago Back for another great stay
Whenever I can, I stay at this property. The proximity to restaurants and shops makes it great for customer entertaining. The hotel itself is great and I love breakfast at Pino Provence. They have the best croissants.

Had trouble logging into my account on the web and called instead. Got a great rate plus they re-instated my gold level plus gave me a $75 dinner credit (gift card) plus half-off parking. Great deal and had a great time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jimbo201 Missed some marks
Never mind the fact that the parking is located in a separate structure 500 or so feet away. 3 things occurred during my stay which frankly surprised me for a Starwood hotel.
1. Hot water was inconsistent (~10pm). Enough so that I eventually just had to cut my bath short.
2. The movie I ordered (Elysium) stopped playing all of a sudden and when I called the front desk they said they'd credit the $ back and send someone up to take a look. 15 mins later and still no one has arrived. I eventually got the movie started again and when I check out the next day the front desk discovers that the charge is still in fact on my bill and proceeds to remove it "again".
3. The hvac unit was so noisy that I had to turn it off just to be able to sleep. I was told later by the front desk that the hotel was a retrofit of an old building and there was still work to be done. She added that this is a common complaint for this location.
I like to think of myself as open minded and usually pretty easy going but these events made for a stay chock full of interruptions. I hope they improve upon these things.

Overall stay was good except all 4 of our rooms were extremely hot. The air conditioning felt like a swamp cooler. It took 4 hours to get the room to 78 degrees. Went down to the bar to wait for the room to cool down.

My family & I just stayed here this past weekend. I made reservations MONTHS ago. It was for two queen beds. I got a king and a rollaway. I was told my room was given to the dance teams that was competing there.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Louie Too many extra expenses
It's such a turn off to be nickled and dimes for everything. Almost $30.00 to park! Really?!
And being charged for the Internet?
Also, your restaurant was not open for dinner. It looked like a really good menu.

Westin is famous for comfortable beds and linens. The fitness center is exceptional also. This location allows one to walk to many nice restaurants. The one area where it is not competitive is in WiFi charges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hummingbird would return
Didn't have time to enjoy the amenities--too busy. But would love to return to do so.
Bed was super comfortable.
Caroma toilet was impressive (water conserving).
Didn't get to use pool/fitness center, but wow!

I also stayed in the shower for 30 minutes - the overhead shower head was oh............... so relaxing...........

Overall, the experience was pretty good. However, the fan in our room (518) was too loud and we could not keep in on during the night. It was a warm night but we could not turn the fan on due to the noise.

Excellent staff, but they need to upgrade TV's and my bed felt like I was sleeping on marshmallow. Room decor is also in need of a facelift. Disappointed with my overall experience.

The hotel was just steps away from the theater where we were planning to see Wicked. We wouldn't have known to walk except that very friendly and helpful valet staff suggested it and gave directions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by yakkers55 Great lobby/staff, rooms need a refresh
The lobby and staff are great, but the rooms are a little run-down with gaps in the tile and the wallpaper coming off a bit. Overall the hotel is fine, just the rooms probably need a little upgrade.

I did not have AC for the first 2 nights of my 3 night stay. The beds were nice but having to wet down a towel to drape over me so that I could catch some sleep was a terrible experience for me.

The hotel had an excellent staff and the facilities were also excellent. I would recommend this hotel for those reasons as well as its proximity to the airport, shopping, restaurants, and beach.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WestinNeighbor Not up to typical Westin standards
The overall condition of the hotel was disappointing for a Westin. Old carpeting and elevators. Shower needed caulking. Pool area was a let down.
Workout area was up to typical standards!
