My husband and I stayed at this hotel as I was attending a conference down the street. We had low expectations, but we were truly blown away by the awesome customer service. We arrived to the hotel at 9:00am and we thought there was no way a room would be ready for us to check in. We were pleasantly surprised!...

For the price, the main benefit you get is location. The rooms are nice and clean but decor a little dated. The pools on offer are good, unsupervised. The breakfast is fruit/yoghurt, cooked and pastries. Eveningfood on offer includes sushi which is of average quality.

The lobby and common areas are nice and that seemed promising, but the room was shabby and not conducive to a good nights sleep which I sorely needed after a cross country flight. There were too few towels and bathroom amenities... little things like no dish make the bigger things (like threadbare rugs) stand out. Like another reviewer noted, I...

Unfortunately I only got to spend one night in this great hotel. It is NOT close to downtown or Gaslamp district though, if that´s what you are looking for. There is a courtesy van from the airport but better call when you arrive, because pick up does not seem to be regulary, I waited almost an hour. Once arrived, the...

The staff at the Crowe Plaza were very nice and helpful. For the money, this one is hard to beat. I will say I was shocked at how out of date this hotel is. If you are looking for adjoining rooms, this one has it. Even though the hotel needs updating, the room was very clean. Self parking is $13...

Was down in San Diego for a quick two day trip. Hotel is old / tired looking, and reminds me of something from 1970's Brady Bunch. Room was clean, bed was comfortable but very firm, bathroom was dated (worn tiles and rusty faucets). The Lobby of the hotel had a sign taped to the front window that mentioned the hotel...

The hotel is beautiful and the staff top notch. Located on Hotel Circle, there is east access to everything. I guess it's tied to your rate somehow, but I got two drink vouchers and free breakfast and dinner. Also free Wifi.

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza for business. The facility was clean but nothing special. Didn't use the pool but it was nice size.

I am a big fan of IHG and stay with them as much as possible. This property is beautiful and well maintained. Room was clean with a balcony and sliding glass door. Super cute. An courtyard is really spectacular.
