This place is a monument to shabbiness. The carpet is old and worn out. The walls are covered in empty drill holes that never got patched after removing fixtures. The pool towels are stained and frayed and compare unfavorably to my dish rags at home. The carpet in the room had burn holes and the trim was all chipped and...

I used to live in OC. I've stayed at many hotels because I visit often as my parents are older. The reason I say the Crown Plaza is the best because of central and convenient location (I was at the hotel within 15 minutes of landing and grabbing my car rental from National); newly renovated and comfortable rooms, great sound...

Modern and large rooms with Queen Beds. Many hotels only provide doubles. The restaurant and bar was fantastic with great value meals and a really good happy hour. The staff here are amazing and nothing is too much trouble. We rated this as the best hotel of our 3 week and 4 city family holiday. It was a great way...

I stayed here for 3 nights in early May for a business conference, the hotel is on the smaller side when it comes to their conference rooms etc...but, we only had 40 people so it worked for us. The staff was all very accommodating from front desk, restaurant and bar to the maids. I would recommend this hotel to business...

I stayed at the Crown Plaza with my mom and aunt. As an IHG Employee, I felt as though I was treated as normal guest. Michael at the front desk was very friendly and accommodating. I am very thankful for his hospitality towards me and my family. My mom had some cocktails at the restaurant and loved them! When there...

The hotel has everything a nice 4-star hotel needs to offer. The receptionists were very friendly and helpful when we checked in. The hotel room was bright, clean and newly renovated. The complimentary buffet breakfast offers plenty of choices. I particularly like the variety of its fruits bar. Totally refreshing! The room rate was very reasonable too. I will definitely...

From the hotel driver Greg to the front desk staff, the entire hotel is a pleasure to stay at. I come here about 4 times a year and only find the hotel and staff to continue to improve. The rooms are nice and the restaurant is very good as well. I love staying here and feel very well taken care...

It doesn't look like much from the outside but the inside is modern and clean. Room was very quiet (5th floor overlooking pool). Bed comfortable. Nice bathroom with separate toilet and big shower. Used the pool area for reading. Quiet and comfortable lounge chairs. We only had one garbage can in our room, which was a bit difficult. I like...
