The room size, quality of bed and amenities are very good. Very comfortable bathroom with storage under the sink to store your own toiletries. They provide a safe and a small refrigerator in the armoire/ TV stand. Our room had a king bed and also a sleeper sofa. The space between the end of the bed and the armoire/TV stand... More

This is a bit of a low frills hotel that serves it's purpose - a room, a bed, food. They've got room service so you can have that quiet night in with your work or a movie. They've got a breakfast buffet with all the right stuff and, hey bonus, it changes slightly everyday. They are currently doing some renovation... More

When there for business. Location was great it was walking distance from Gilead. Staff was very accommodating. Clean rooms, room service was great, the restaurants in the hotel were decent and there is a good Mexican restaurant one block away. I would stay again.

A family member booked 4 rooms for us at this hotel, as we were dealing with a sudden and tragic death in the family and were in town for the funeral. First, let me say that most of the hotel staff could not have been nicer. I am so grateful to them for their compassion and their hospitality. But what... More

I went back to this property after 19 years. I stayed there for two nights for business. They recently went through renovations and it is very nice. I was very pleasantly surprised by the changes that were made to the room. The renovation was at the tail end ( wrapping up some work in the lobby). The front desk was... More

The facilities are good, but the experience is always mixed. Room preference - in particular noise level - is heavily influenced by proximity to freeway, hotel atrium, and/or bistro/bar. Aircon also very loud in rooms. Staff knowledge, responsiveness, and friendliness is highly variable.

I was given a room in the separate building from the main hotel. The result was a quiet and comfortable night. There was a band/DJ playing in the main building, and is was a long walk from the parking structure.

We were a very large family reunion/ wedding anniversary party and rented a ballroom and hotel rooms. We had people from 80 to 5 years old. We liked the catering. We thought the soundproofing in the ballrooms was excellent-we could not hear the large Tongan wedding reception in the adjoining rooms through the wall. The airport shuttle baggage ticket MUST...

Horrible. Club music until 2 am can be heard all the way up yo our 4th floor room, Really? What a horrible hotel. Not what a Crowne Plaza should be. Move on if you want a pleasant nights rest. Why would a hotel like this sacrifice guests for local club goers? No class.
