Had a wonderful time during our training conference, My room was very nice, modern with all the comforts of home. All staff members I encountered were friendly and professional. One of the BEST Crowne Plaza I've stayed at!

Great staff and available services. Manager (Sebastian I believe) was extremely helpful in providing guidance in the local area. Clean comfortable rooms and pool facilities. Great bar beside the lobby and ample parking. Conveniently located to shopping and some fantastic restaurants. We will stay here again.

I'm giving this hotel 3 stars ONLY because of the manager. I stayed at this hotel over a year ago for business and had a good experience. I was again on a business trip and because of my previous experience I decided to stay at this hotel. The front desk staff is not sincere or very accommodating. The front desk...

We've stayed here multiple times in the past and each and every time, the staff have been one of the best we have ever encountered. We travel a moderate amount and have stayed in numerous hotels and this is certainly one of the better ones, because of the staff. They were especially helpful with any requests we had and truly...

After a long day of traveling, I arrived at this hotel at 7 PM. I went to the front desk and told Sebastian (yes, I'm naming names) that I had a reservation. He was super cocky and told me my room wasn't ready yet so I'd have to wait. Not ready at 7 PM?? Again he repeated that I'd have...

Besides the hotel being a great location to the 405 freeway and to McDonald's next store, the hotel is well-maintained and the hotel staff are pleasant and helpful. Also, I was very pleased with the way the hotel staff helped me solve a problem with a charge on my credit card. Thanks!

After another return visit to this hotel, im still surprised at how helpful and friendly the staff are. They literally go above and beyond to help you. Theyre very welcoming and I cant sing their praises highly enough, especially Javier and Josh at reception. The hotel is in a great location, with the hotel running complimentary shuttle buses.

The food was great, and I found the staff helpful and friendly, especially the early morning service in the restaurant. I would have given it a higher review but the rooms need a facelift. I loved the design but some things were a bit worn, paint needed a touchup, etc. For my purposes the location worked well.

Stayed here for two nights using rewards points then extended staying another two nights. Room was a large suite, clean, a great room for two adults and two children.
