As I am working out in Corona, CA during the week, I am always looking for a weekend getaway if I am not working weekends. The last view times I spent the weekend at the Hyatt Regency Long Beach, which is a great hotel to stay at, especially if you have business in this area. For this specific weekend I tried to go to the Hyatt Regency Long Beach again, but first, it was sold out when I checked Friday morning and later on that day rooms were available but for an insanely high price of over $300. After some research, I decided to book the Hyatt Regency Orange County. It had two big advantages for me. First, the price was very cheap, room rate was $95 and second, it was close to the John Wayne Airport in Orange County, where I would fly out on Monday. The drive to the hotel took a while, as I got stuck in the usual LA traffic.
Once I made the final turn into the hotel driveway, I was impressed. The driveway leading up to the hotel is amazing. A palm tree alley with painted cobblestones to form waves. You can also see the huge glass front of the hotel which sits in between the two towers. The driveway gets divided in front of the hotel to one-way streets and with trees and a fountain in the middle. I turned around at the end of the driveway and parked right in front of the hotel. A valet came up to me and he let me park my car there to check-in and unload. He offered assistance as well with bags if I needed any. The only terms for leaving the car there was handing over the keys in case they have to move it.
