Room nicely decorated but would have been nice to have fridge as in cheaper hotels such as Holiday Inn. Pool area is great, large heated pool and children had it all to themselves and hot tub. Surprised that smoking is allowed by the pool. Overall a very good hotel with helpful staff.

Needed to stay around Northern Irvine and selected the Crowne Plaza because I am a Gold Ambassador with IHG. The hotel's location is convenient by the 405 freeway. There is a nearby mall and some fast food places too. But Costa Mesa is far from being a holiday destination. The hotel's exterior looks quite nice but the Hilton across the...

Stayed here over the July 4th weekend. Based on earlier reviews the hotel was recently renovated and it looked great. We had a first floor room. At some hotels we have stayed at, having lower floors can lead to more noise, but not here. We didn't have any issues with that. Easy access to the freeways was handy, although one...

Want to commend Andrew on his service in the bar/restaurant. Particularly on Sat night when it was crowded, our service was fabulous. When some of the customers with a large group were difficult, he kept his cool and looked after all of the patrons. Also kudos to the chefs. Great food always.

I coordinated a high school class reunion at the Crowne Plaza Costa Mesa for a group of approximately 50 persons. Crowne Plaza Captain, Mr. Oscar Guzman,made our event the best ever! Oscar is attentive, courteous, helpful and there when you need him. He is experienced in all facets of managing an event seamlessly serving our group efficiently and going the...

Unlike the surrounding hotels that cater to tourists and kids, this hotel is primarily a business hotel which means it is quiet, efficient, and straightforward. No extra "resort" fees for parking, wifi, etc. The hotel restaurant is quite good with actual cooked food, not microwaved frozen stuff. We had a room that faced Bristol and were concerned about noise but...

I recently spent three days at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, during a staycation of sorts. The hotel grounds were very well maintained. I found my hotel room to be comfortable. The food at the on-site restaurant was delicious. Most of all, I was impressed with the hotel staff. The staff members I encountered were all incredibly polite, accommodating and eager...

I stayed here for a conference, which was well hosted by the hotel. But the real draw was the wonderful hotel! All the staff was so friendly (thank you Javier, Sam, and all the front desk people!), and the restaurant was EXCELLENT. Great food, and generous happy hour specials (late night, too), and the service was outstanding. Jeremy was our...
