  • Dana Erickson is very friendly, accommodating and a very professional events organizer of the Ayres Hotel in Costa Mesa. She walked us through the hotel and showed us how our wedding will be if and when we decide to have it at their venue. The hotel has a very European, vintage feel that my fiancé and I appreciate. It is not a "big, fancy" hotel and that's what we like about it. It has that simplicity and elegance that you need for an intimate wedding. We had lunch at their restaurant, the Le Chateau Garden Bistro. We were impressed at the service and the food. Their Truffle fries are a must try! Plus their oatmeal raisin cookies are to die for. Overall, we're happy!

    Hi Noelle! Thank you SO MUCH for your kind words! We are so happy that you loved your experience here...and it's just the first of many! We are so looking forward to hosting yours and Rodger's big day in a couple months! :) Cannot wait to grow our friendship and be a part of your wedding at our hotel! Thank you!!

  • Jessica is absolutely amazing. Not only did she answer every single question we had, but she did so clearly and as simply as possible. And when we went over the paperwork there were no hidden fees at all. They were also preparing for a wedding the afternoon we toured so we got to see how everything would be set up ahead of time. Everything is just so beautiful

  • April 7th, 2018 was the happiest day of our lives thanks to Catering Manager Jessica Anderson and the incredible staff of the Ayres Hotel Costa Mesa. From the day Jessica and I had our first consultation the experience I had planning our wedding was nothing short of a blessing! Jessica instantly made my mother and I feel welcome and taken care of. Her organization and superior customer service ensured that every detail of of our special day was handled with attentiveness and care. Jessica was very responsive to all of our emails and did not forget a single thing. She even made sure we had a back-up plan in case it rained. She also took initiative to handwrite our instagram hashtag for display which was not part of our package. We were treated with kindness and courtesy the entire time. The catering staff attended to our every request...they even moved the entire dance floor so our sweetheart table would fit nicely. We truly felt like a king and queen on our wedding day! The food was d... Read more

  • Ayres is a small boutique kind of hotel. We pretty much selected this venue because of its environment and Laura. Laura personable and professional, and you will be working with her a lot. She responds to your emails within the same day. She is there at every step of your planning. She makes sure that you are taken care of and things are perfect for you. The best part is that she's just so sweet and easy to work with. She pretty much made all our requests happen. Other staff members are definitely awesome, too. Their food is AMAZING. I'm not talking about wedding food level amazing. (We all know that we sometimes can't expect much for wedding food.) It's regular Yelp level amazing. Our guests also commented that their bar has amazing martinis. Overall, the hotel is very well-managed. Other staff members were awesome, too. I can tell that they put their hearts into the services. The venue is reasonably affordable compared to other options in the area. The ceremony area has seaso... Read more

  • Wow!! What an amazing experience. We had the best day of our lives having our wedding here. From the moment we met Laura I had a good feeling about the place. The intimacy of the cermony area had me sold. And the outdoor reception area was one of a kind!! Having the dance floor inside the little room had me a little worried at first. But we did our first dance out by the pool and when the dance floor opened up everyone was there anyway! It was nice to be able to get outside and get air and have space and a quieter place to talk and mingle too. Seriously, having our wedding here was the first of many great decisions that made our wedding day amazing. I cannot that Laura enough for being so incredible and helpful throughout the whole process!! Thank you Ayres, you made our wedding day so perfect.

  • See Laura McConnell, we booked this venue 100% because of her. Her professionalism was top notch, she was a great partner that helped us pull together a wedding in less than four months. Both myself (the groom), the bride and our guests had a great experience at the Ayres. Laura had a great short list of vendors that were great to work with, the packages offered were very fair and affordable. The wife and I will be back to the Ayres for our anniversary dinners (the chicken parm was GREAT, definitely not typical "wedding food"). The staff was great, our captain (Marcos) was one of the best service staff members I've ever worked with (including NY, PA and CA over nearly 10 years working in the industry).

  • What a wonderful experience we had with this company! This particular location is beautiful and well worth every cent. Laura was a wonderful help every step of the way; she was polite, personable, and genuine, and I could not imagine getting married without her there. It was raining the morning of my wedding, and I was so anxious about what was going to happen with the wedding. I shouldn't have worried one bit, Laura walked me through everything and it was just wonderful. I cannot say enough good things about this place, the staff, and my experience with them. If you are looking to get married in California, please use this place. You will not be sorry!

  • We had just our Reception at the Hotel and Laura was amazing. Very easy to work with, and quick to answer questions. We had the Gold package and was such a great value, it included our cake from Amazing Cake Creations (it was delicious), included cocktail hour with appetizers, and plated meals for my guests. The servers provided excellent service and were very attentive. The tables were set up beautifully, and the lights that were added made it even more elegant! The only thing that was a down side, was my cake top was not put into a box to take home with me so we had to eat it the next day before it went bad. The servers did keep all my decorations organized for me at the end of the night though so it was easy to load into my car.

  • Ayres Hotel is about 2 miles from my home and have always liked the ambiance. I've eaten at Ayres several times because the restaurant on site is extremely good. I decided to inquire about a wedding reception/ceremony there for my daughters wedding . I met with coordinator Laura Mcconnell and she was very professional from the first day we talked all the way through. I did not do the traditional banquet/reception food and did food stations that I like. We actually did a taco bar and a slider bar with all the fixings from curly fries to rice and beans and condiments. My point is that they are very flexible about what menu you might want. Also, you're allowed to use your own DJ, photographer, bakery and florist. Everywhere we looked from hotels to private estates to golf courses make you use their own vendors which eliminates your cost control points. Overall I honestly can say I did not have one complaint. My suggestion is to at least add it to your list of venues you're look... Read more

  • If I could give more stars I would! We had been searching for a location where we could have both our ceremony and reception within our budget and this place did not disappoint. As soon as we took the tour we were sold. The ceremony was in their patio/fountain area which is decorated with their seasonal flowers (i didn't have to buy flowers for the ceremony) and we had our reception in the pool area ( the DJ and dance floor in a room next to the pool). We have nothing but great things to say about their catering manager, Laura McConnell. Don't know what we would have done without her. She was there for us every step of the way. Being that we've never had to plan a wedding before we were a bit lost at first but Laura was always available to answer any questions. She always responded promptly to my emails and would follow up with any info we needed. The hotel was very accommodating and had different packages to choose from to fit your budget. They have a restaurant in the hotel which p... Read more

  • The Ayres hotel in Costa Mesa has very charming decorations and furniture. The rooms are clean and the staff is amazing. We used this hotel for our wedding block and we worked with Kara. She was very accommodating and we were able to get a good block of rooms for our guests available by phone (no contract or minimum number of rooms). The hotel is close to the airport and has a nice restaurant, a nice patio area with a fountain, as well as 2 pools. Since the airport closes after 10:30pm, there is no airplane noise at night. Parking is free. This place is a great value and we would definitely go there again!
