This was my first experience with the Crowne Plaza Hotel and truly enjoyed my stay. The Crowne is located in the Mission Valley (Hotel Circle) area with great shopping and dining nearby. The hotel is about 10 minutes away from Old Town- you don't even need to get on the freeway!
Check-in was great. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The lobby is very pretty with a small waterfall right outside. This hotel participates in Green Engage and offers a $5 food/dining credit if you opt out of housekeeping.
Rooms are a little dated with old pictures that did not match the tropical theme of the rest of the hotel. Unfortunately, they were not extremely clean. When we got to our room, my daughter noticed a blue Advil PM pill on the nightstand (not ours!). Also, there is quite a bit of dirt/grime on the sliding glass door track/ Thankfully, our bed linens were fresh and clean. We were in room 1638 that has a great view of the pool and a lovely balcony. I loved the fact that there was a small refrigerator and microwave. One really nice touch was the Sleep Tight kit that was provided. The Temple Spa aromatherapy kit included an overnight face mask, body spray, and leg gel to help you relax and prepare for a restful sleep. Loved it!!!! Taking everything into account, the room was comfortable.
Restrooms are also a bit dated.The showers are old and worn looking, however, the shower head was great and had excellent water pressure. The towels were fluffy and large enough. I liked the Temple Spa shampoo and conditioner. Bring your own blow dryer, as the ones provided have no power!
The grounds are beautiful. There are lovely waterfalls, a great pool, glass elevators, lots of greenery, etc. It is nice to have a tropical theme throughout the hotel. Very relaxing.
Overall, I would stay at the this hotel again. We were very comfortable here and it is in the perfect location!
