Really, this is the best place to sleep if you're staying for a night in IRVINE, CA. There are obviously better places to sleep down the street in Newport Beach. They have down comforters which is always a plus. There aren't really any other nice hotels in Irvine - compared to the Hyatt. The next closest is probably the Marriott hotel. If you're doing a search, I wouldn't necessarily go with the Irvine Hilton because it is a really old place. Every time I go, I think someone says it was "recently remodeled" but everything still feels old to me. It's really close to the airport but the Hyatt is only a few more blocks down.
