All was great

This was a great place to stay in San Diego and the concierge service was good. Parking was handy and when I stayed (late May) the large pool was not very busy. Restaurant was a bit pricey, so I didn't eat there much.

High hopes, but disappointed

My husband and I went to San Diego for our ten year anniversary. The city was wonderful, the Crowne Plaza not so much. To begin, there is an unadvertised $12 a night parking fee, which was ridiculous considering our car was rarely parked at the hotel. The housekeeping staff cleaned our room but failed to leave ANY towels on one occasion and left the cleaning towels in our room on another occasion. There is no continental breakfast, but you can eat at their buffet for $16.95 per person. HA! Near the end of our four nights, the hotel room felt dirty. It was time to go. We will not be staying here again.

Good for the price

Very nice for the price. Restaurant was a little pricey and paying $12 a day to park on the opposite side of the hotel was a little much but all in all was a nice place to stay.

Very nice hotel, but mediocre location

The location was unusual. While it was close to the highway, it was hard to access. It was impossible to get around without a car, even for a leisurely stroll. I was also disappointed the hotel didn't provide a shuttle to/from the airport, which was a short distance away.

They Charge $12 for Parking.

The location is good, closed to shopping mall and restaurant. Room is clean, but the pillow is very uncomfortable. They also charge $12 for parking which they don't mention anywhere before booking.

Great location!

The Crowne Plaza Hotel was one of the best hotels I have stayed. The room was immaculate and the amenities were perfect for our 6 day stay; hairdryer, iron/board, fridge, microwave, flat screen tv, balcony overlooking the city. The hotel was friendly and very helpful and made our vacation as comfortable as could be. The breakfast buffett and sushi were delicious! The only downside was the pricey food and parking/internet fees---parking was $12/day and internet was $10 per 24 hour usage period. Aside from that, it was wonderful!

This hotel is SO close to everything---in the middle of downtown/balboa park/old town....it was literally 5 min. to all of those areas and located right near the interstate.
