As the first new build, full-service hotel to open in Orange County in more than a decade, Marriott Irvine Spectrum’s grand opening demonstrates the company’s continued growth and development in Southern California. Located in the city’s business and entertainment hub, the new hotel inspires guests throughout the building with unique artwork and design that embraces the Irvine Ranch.
“Marriott Hotels has been on a transformational journey to push the boundaries of innovation in travel and to create experiences that inspire our guests,” said Julius Robinson, senior vice president, Marriott International. “The Marriott Irvine Spectrum delivers on this and more, breaking convention with its impressive technology, inventive guest rooms, inspiring meeting spaces and food and beverage offerings, all geared toward today’s travelers.”
Offering 271 guest rooms, including 50 premier suites, just steps away from the Irvine Spectrum Center, a top shopping and dining destination, and the evolving Orange County Great Park, spanning 1,300 acres, the hotel attracts visitors as well as locals. Designed by Newport Beach-based R.D Olson Development, the property pays homage to the rich history of Irvine Ranch. Combining classic, rustic living with contemporary styling and the latest innovations, Marriott Irvine Spectrum is a bustling and sophisticated urban oasis and the sleek, new centerpiece of the Irvine skyline.
Boasting 13,000 square feet of immersive, tech-savvy indoor and outdoor space, including a 5,000-square foot ballroom, 4,000-square foot event lawn and break out rooms, the hotel is perfectly situated to serve the business boom in Irvine and 1.4 million square feet of new office space currently underway. Hive & Honey, Irvine’s newest rooftop bar, is located on the property’s 15th floor.
“We are extremely proud to work with Marriott Hotels on this innovative project that offers travelers a hotel experience that has wonderful energy and spaces that create a vibe that didn’t exist in the area before,” said Robert D. Olson, President and CEO of RD Olson Development. “In close collaboration with the Irvine Company, we have been able to ensure that Marriott Irvine Spectrum celebrates the rich history of the Ranch and brings to life Orange County in a fun and creative way to our guests.”
Situated as a social hub, Heirloom, the property’s full-service restaurant contains a locally-driven menu, showcasing the best of Orange County through hyper-seasonal dishes, allowing guests to both refresh and reboot.
