My wife and I vacationed in San Diego and stayed at this Crowne Plaza for three nights in December 2011. I'm a little behind on my reviews but this was a nice property.
The rooms were very well sized and ours had a balcony. We didn't really use it as it didn't really get above about 60 degrees during our stay, but it was a corner room and had a nice view which we enjoyed.
The one thing that is different about this hotel is its exterior corridor. But - its still protected like it was interior corridor as you've got to have a key to get into the building. Think of it like an Embassy Suites (which all mostly use that courtyard type of feature) except that you're outside. It really is no less secure than an interior corridor building.
The grounds are well kept and the place has a distinct tropical feel so you know you're somewhere where its supposed to be warm. They charge $12 or $15 a night for parking I believe but its waived for most (if not all) priority club members. The lines on the parking lot should be re-drawn as they're way too tight. Not everyone is driving a compact car. Anything larger and you're spilling into another space.
We had a couple of issues during our stay concerning internet not working on the business center computer (which you're charged for using), and the staff was very friendly and prompt in resolving those issues for us.
Overall, there's so much to do in San Diego so we didn't spend tons of time in the hotel. No doubt, we'd stay here again.
