The Embassy Suites in Irvine, CA, is celebrating 30 years of hospitality with a newly completed $12 million transformation. The 293-room airport hotel has revamped all of its guest suites, event space, and atrium with a modern, California-fresh look.
The stunning 10-story atrium hotel shines with new architectural features and waterfalls. While continuing to serve the daily complimentary breakfast and evening Manager’s reception, the atrium also acts as the central location for guests to gather, mingle and hold one-on-one meetings.
Long recognized as the premier suite property convenient to John Wayne/Orange County Airport, the finished product showcases modern touches, vintage regional artwork and high-tech connectivity with over 150 Wi-Fi access points ensuring guests reliable and fast Internet access throughout the hotel. Adding to the guest experience, a Starbucks coffee shop is coming in late June providing guests and nearby businesses with fresh coffee and pastries.
Guest suites with separate bedroom and living rooms were fully upgraded with new furniture and carpeting, continuing to offer guests an “at home” experience. Design elements highlight driftwood textures, matte and shiny surfaces paired with sophisticated wall coverings resembling metallic wood grain. The hotel’s City View suites capture panoramic views and feature new standing showers and upgraded amenities including Keurig coffee makers.
In addition, the remodeled atrium is home to the new Vibrante SoCal Kitchen & Bar. Vibrante is an original dining concept featuring regionally inspired small and shared plates modernizing the Mexican tradition. Sample menu items include Local Rock Cod Fish Tacos, Short Rib Enchiladas, South Coast Farms Stone Fruit Salad and Avocado Hummus with House Flat Bread. There is also an emphasis on local wines from Temecula and Orange County Craft Beers.
“Our guests continuously choose us for our premier location, comfortable setting and authentic SoCal guest experience,” said Swietlana Cahill, General Manager at Embassy Suites Irvine. “Now with these wonderful new enhancements and the inviting Vibrante restaurant, we’ll be the go to Orange County location for business or leisure that is just minutes from the Disneyland Resort, world class beaches, shopping and dining.”
