My Stay at the Fairmont in Newport Beach, CA
So as many of you know I commute down to UC Irvine, a few days a week with Jenn and others by myself. Its less then an hour without traffic and can get longer then two with it. Its really the typical Southern CA norm. Whatever the case, a few weeks back it was finals week and I had a big final for a class I had to pass to graduate. So instead of waking up the next morning at 3:30-4:00 to make sure I made it to my 8am class I decided to rent a room down in the Irvine area. And for those of you not familiar with the area Newport Beach is literally two minutes from the UCI campus, so I decided to just go for it and stay in a real nice place figuring it was my reward for the long Winter Quarter.
So I drive up at around 5pm on a Tuesday night, and the place is hopping with an Air France conference. I pull up for valet (no self parking at this place) and I get comped valet for driving a hybrid, a thirty dollar value I might add! I had booked my room a few hours before arriving, and everything was good to go. I signed up for there free Fairmont Presidential membership which scored me free Wi-Fi and free NY Times in the morning.
The room itself was extremely nice as you can see from the pictures below taken with my iPhone. Here are some photos of the room and the nice 32" LCD.
So as you can see the room is really nice and as you can see from the image below I did do some studying.
But of course when you are studying you work up an appetite and that is what is so great about room service. For dinner I had a Turkey Club, a Bowl of Tortilla Soup, and a Coke. Can it get any better?
So it was a great day. I had a real relaxing time at the Fairmont. I got my studies done. A great night sleep in an ultra comfy bed. Came back after my final and napped for 3 hours (got a late check out) and felt great. Plus I got a B in the class so it all worked out in the end. All in all it was a great stay, I hope to do it again on my last quarter here at UCI.
