Oscar, Tanisha and others at front desk - warm and helpful .. hotel has been remodeled .. friendly competent staff and clean facility. Gated parking garage underneath for a fee, but worth it. Classy jazz music played on entry level - modern uncluttered public areas - we will be back.

My stay at this hotel was phenomenal! Tanisha was so welcoming at the front desk and checked in time to time with how my stay was going. She provided me with bottled water and a warm cookie. The hotel is newly renovated so the room was updated and refreshing to stay in. The bathroom was very nice, especially with the LED mirror. Since I was the first to stay in this room, the shower head was clogged and I needed maintenance to come fix it. The water pressure was a bit much and it didn’t feel nice when showering. I had trouble with adjusting the pressure because all settings were too much. I didn’t use the amenities such as the gym or pool.
Would recommend this hotel and would come again! (Also they changed the name to hotel zessa because of the mix up with the other double tree down the street. It is still a double tree).

Thank you for staying with us! I am happy to hear you enjoyed our beautifully remodeled hotel along with amazing service from our front desk assistant manager, Tanisha. I sincerely apologize about the shower concerns and noted that you mentioned engineering came up to resolve this. I would still like to make this right as this is not the typical guest experience; please reach out to the hotel and ask for Oscar, so that I may assist you.

Had one of the best stays at Hilton. Both Lorena and Andric were courteous with a great hospitality where when a shuttle bus driver wasn’t available they made a Lyft arrangement. Certainly, I am enjoying Santa Ana furthermore because of my heart warming experience at this hotel. Already looking forward to returning to Orange County and staying at this fantastic hotel.

Anita C was the most awesome bartender. She went out of her way to make all the customers happy, she even was able to get buffalo sauce on my wings instead of the jerk seasoning. That's great way to win over repeat customers. Thanks Anita for your dedication to the customer!

Tanisha is a great leader she was assisting so many people at one time. Very great at multi tasking. Coffee shop was definitely my place while I was there and those cookies are so soft and they melt in your mouth. Nice touch and treat at this lovely location.

This is a review of my overall experience upon my check-in and stay at Hotel Zessa in Santa Ana, California. Stepping up to the registration desk I was greeted with a warm smile by an employee named Tanisha. She asked me how she could assist me with my check in. The simple process was very quick and simple. After I received by room key I told Tanisha I was new to the area and could she recommend some restaurants in the area. She recommended several and offered further to the area if needed. Without my asking, she offered fresh cookies and a bottled water. Very professional. Thank you Tanisha.
My updated room was well decorated and very roomy. They offer a nice dining room (Citrus) with an eclectic menu. The gym is small but adequate equipment.
I would recommend this hotel located near the Orange County Airport .

Nicely renovated and upgraded. Very comfortable. The gym is small but has everything I needed including a peloton. The restaurant is delicious and has a nice bar. The conference rooms were noise proof and perfect for a meeting. It is very inviting and bright when you walk in. The location is fantastic for arrivals at John Wayne Airport and conveniently located by a ton of restaurants, businesses and shopping. Reasonably priced. Will visit next time I’m in town.

Talk about a 5 star treatment. I felt as though I walked into a different world with the way I was treated, and the property. The team was so accommodating, extremely personable and treated us as family.

The room was elegant, clean and very comfortable. The property definitely was remodeled and the attention to detail in all the right places was well thought out.
