This hotel had exceptional service. The people were super friendly and the rooms were exceptionally nice and clean. We had a great stay here. It was also nice that they had special service and attention for airline employees as we are certainly on the road a lot and special customer service makes our trips so much easier when we're gone...

I stay here every other week for work (not by choice). Upon checking in last time they informed me that my credit card declined. Alarmed, I quickly opened my Citi app on my phone. Turns out there were multiple transactions being processed from the hotel from my previous trip. They had never closed out my previous ticket and were trying...

This hotel has been updated in the last couple of years. The staff is super friendly and nice. From check in to check out everyone treats you with a smile. The room was very nice and very clean. The restaurant serves good food and there are fire pit things outside that are really nice at night. The location is very...

After a long drive, we were received by the warmest welcome and most efficient check-in by Michael and Karen at the reception! The hotel lobby was as impressive as the room decor for this hotel level. Very comfortable beds and clean well-kept room. Exactly what we needed at 130am! Thanks so much, Michael and Karen!!

The entire staff was outgoing friendly and very helpful. From the front desk staff to the restaurant staff( we especially appreciated Carmela who was kind and a hard worker- we saw her bring water to a couples table who had a dog, such an incredible thoughtful gesture)

The location of Crowne Plaza is amazing for the O.C. area, 15 minutes from Newport Beach and with shopping & restaurants just down the road. The freeway is also just by the hotel adding no extra travel time to get on the freeway if going elsewhere around California. The staff was perfectly friendly and helpful, allowing us to check-out a...

I would probably give this hotel 3 1/2 stars. It's better than average but not quite up to very good standards. First the good. The hotel is reasonably priced and generally attractive, the staff was excellent, the room was large and the bed was comfortable. The location is convenient to Newport, South Coast Plaza, John Wayne Airport and Orange County...

Booked this hotel for a one night business trip b/c of proximity to the airport, which was less than 3 miles away. There is safe secure parking for $10/day.
