Pros:
Cons: The hotel was overbooked, which ultimately is the fault of the hotel. They did make several concessions for this but the hotel they put me in for one night was definitely not on par with their level.

Pros: I booked this hotel so that my grandkids and I can swim together. For the 2 days I was there, the pool was very cold. Although Duke Hotel has poor service, I end up checking in there when I visit my grandkids in Irvine because the pool has a comfortable.
Cons: The other guests and kids, were all crammed in the jacuzzi because they all complained about how cold the pool was.
