Silver Hilton Orange County/Costa Mesa

Area: Orange County

The Costa Mesa-based Hilton is a modest accommodation with a business traveler focus. Near the John Wayne airport, it is convenient for those with corporate duties in the area or for those interested in shopping at the nearby South Coast Plaza. Hilton CM is a relatively large property for this neck of the OC woods with 486 rooms spread across 7 stories. Common areas received the lion's share of recent upgrades and the lobby looks first class.

Starbucks coffee is served in the lobby café and complimentary wireless internet is also available in the lobby, but guests must pay a fee for room access.  Standard room rates here are quite reasonable so we recommend considering an upgrade to the Executive Level where rooms are significantly more appealing than regular rooms. The price differential will vary depending on vacancy rates. Other basic room amenties are the coffeemaker, mini fridge, and 42" HDTV.

Hilton's complimentary 24-hour gym is located on the 2nd floor. It contains Precor machines (e.g., upright bikes, ellipticals, and treads). The room itself has mirrored walls/ceilings and greenhouse-like glass windows that start from the ground and curve overhead. You may feel like a tropical plant while inside, but this fitness experience is better than your average hotel gym, which is why it made the list.

Joggers who prefer the outdoors can obtain a route map from the front desk. Serious swimmers will have to make the drive to 24 Hour Fitness on Anton. It's not far, but it will cost you $20/day for a dip. The upside is that the pool is a wonderful, 25-meter, saltwater lapper.
