I found this property great. First off, it is newer, clean, quiet and a friendly staff. The location was good for a business trip for me, but the bonus was a trail system just a block from the front door. The trails are wide, well cared for, quiet and challenging. I was on them as soon as the sun arose...

Not knowing the area, I found it on a whim. Since Rancho Santa Margarita is a more high-end housing area, I drove for more than a few miles around the church where I was to attend a memorial service looking for a place to stay. There it was, a grand hotel perched on a hill and waiting for me. Upon...

Bed was super comfy and the balcony was worth it to enjoy my morning coffee. The couch was also comfy and cute. Staff was extremely friendly and the room was clean and with great lighting to get ready. It also was nearby to everything which is great.

Relaxing and secluded location ideal for getting away from city bustle. The room was clean and comfy with a small fridge and had a nice view of the local hills. Hall carpeting could use a rebuff but still clean. Liked the little bar and private seating, but most of all the chimney. Close to freeway. Only annoying part was people...

I stayed here with family for 1 night. Rooms are good as usual for Marriott. I liked the ambience. We had a breakfast and evening snack there. Liked the quality of food. They should have better menu selection - but there are ample restaurants in the next block - so not a hassle. Service could have been better - specially...

Not bad but really nothing to brag about. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly but a lot of minor details were annoying. When checking in the TV didn't work and the shower was very difficult to get to a comfortable temperature, it varied between too cold to too hot. I'm a Marriott Gold member and this is...

12 year old property, 4 stories, U-shaped, directly off highway, 15 minutes from SNA airport. Very good condition, clean/comfortable with a refresh scheduled for this year. The property is by no means out of shape, very commendable that they plan on keeping it fresh.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cradled by the Saddleback Mountains, the Courtyard Foothill Ranch Irvine East Hotel is an oasis in South Orange County. We're perfectly situated between Lake Forest and Rancho Santa Margarita. Our Foothill Ranch hotel is surrounded by many wilderness parks and yet a short drive away from the elegance of Newport Beach, Corona Del Mar and the coves, eclectic atmosphere and art galleries of Laguna Beach. Back at our hotel, experience our high-tech lobby featuring The Bistro, which serves Starbucks coffee, where you can sit and enjoy a full meal and cocktails in the evening, or grab an appetizer or something light to go. Stay connected with free Wi-Fi and our interactive GoBoard(R) technology, providing relevant, up-to-date news, weather and local information. Guests of our Lake Forest, CA hotel appreciate our smartly-designed rooms that provide the right mix of relaxation and flexible functionality. When downtime arises, soak up the California sun and relax at our outdoor pool and whirlpool. ... more   less
