If you've been eager for a change of pace or to get out of the house, why not spend your weekend at the Marriott Irvine Spectrum for a staycation! The hotel is currently offering a "Drinks on Us" staycation deal that includes two signature cocktails at the Hive & Honey Rooftop bar during your stay. This package deal is valid through the end of the year (2020) and can be booked with any of their available room options. The hotel has been welcoming back guests with the highest level of excellence in hospitality and enhanced safety measures so that guests feel secure and safe. 

I had the opportunity to stay in Marriott Irvine Spectrum's Residential Kitchen suite, which I've also experienced here. The corner suite includes a full kitchen which is great for a short or extended stay, because I feel like you can never go wrong with having the option of kitchen amenities at your fingertips. There's also a desk space and seating area nestled amongst sprawling floor to ceiling window views. The room is up to date with an Alexa device and smart tv; and we can't forget the gorgeous, modern bathroom equipped with a spacious shower and well-lit makeup mirror.

During my weekend getaway here, I took advantage of the warm weather with a poolside cabana complete with a refreshing fruit platter and some bubbly. Cabana or not, the Marriott Irvine Spectrum's pool exudes resort vibes which is so enjoyable to jump in and enjoy the water or lounge poolside. It was the perfect departure from my usual day to day life, especially when I've been cooped up at home for the majority of the time. This is the relaxation that I've been needing the past few months.

I really loved that a big part of my hotel experience is getting to enjoy the room. Whenever I've stayed in this room, I look forward to indulging in a warm cup of coffee or a nice glass of wine and snacks. We were spoiled with a charcuterie board and accompanying wine pairing which was a delightful surprise after an afternoon at the pool. Marriott Irvine Spectrum Room with Wine & Charcuterie Board

A stay or visit to the Marriott Irvine Spectrum is never complete without an experience at their acclaimed 360-degree view rooftop bar, Hive & Honey. As apart of the "Drinks on Us" package, we received two signature cocktails: the Bee's Knees (Nolet’s Gin | Honey Syrup | Orgeat | Lemon Juice) and Wasp's Nest (Casamigos Mezcal, Aperol, Jalapeno Agave, Lemon). If you're not able to stay at the hotel, you can still experience Hive & Honey - open Tues-Thurs 4pm-10pm & Fri-Sat 4pm-11pm, make your reservation here (guests are given a 2 hour limit and the rooftop space is operating at a decreased capacity for a more ample ambiance) and check out their upcoming Hive & Haunted event for Halloween!
