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. Room service was prompt and they allowed me to check in 2 hours ahead of check in time since there was an available room. There is a small 24 hour gym...

One of human's most memorable impression is scent and it was not a good one as I walk down the hall to my room. It smelled like old spilled alcohol mixed with animal fur. It could also be the dirty dishes in the hallway. For some reason, there seem to always be dirty dishes near my room (116). Luckily the...

Every time I've checked in to the Crown Plaza Costa Mesa I've been greeted with a smile and by name.
