Room was very small, we were stuck away in a corner next to the Housekeeping Room, were we started hearing the carts as early as 7am. We were basically told since we got such a good rate thru Hotwire we were not getting a better room, as we had changed rooms once as the first room had a very bad... More

Before I booked this hotel, I called and made sure they have facilities for babies. They assured me yes baby facilities were available, for free too. Sure enough, a crib (albeit a very old fashioned metal bar type) was provided upon my request on arrival. The hotel room was very 70s but it was spacious. So far so good. And... More

Stayed at the CP recently for a big sold out event, the staff are very accommodating and friendly to all guests. My room was clean, and well serviced. Food at the sushi bar, very tasty. Will be back next year for sure. Of note, not all rooms have fridges, but here they're adding them. So make sure you request a... More

This was my third stay at the Crowne Plaza. I love the Hawaiian vibe of this place and was pleasantly surprised by their newly upgraded rooms. Friendly staff, clean rooms, beautiful grounds, great sushi restaurant and fun pool will keep me coming back!

This place is a total dump. Walking up to my room on the third floor was like a trip to a slum tenement building. Room smells like urine, door doesn't lock, air conditioner doesn't work, and front desk is "staffed" by a man who seems to be working there as part of his community service sentence. Couldn't get anything to... More

The moment you enter this property you are in a tropical paradise, The staff is at your beck and call as if you are at a resort in Hawaii. And you will feel as if you are thanks to the tropical landscaping. Lounge in the pool then partake of the Islands Restaurant to close out your all night experience.

The Crowne Plaza started as a Hawaiian themed location the Hanalei Hotel. While not quite as a grand as it was then, it is still a slice of tropical paradise. We have stayed there for the Tiki Oasis convention and just when passing through and it always is a comfortable place to stay with great service, conveniently located for all... More

Wow. The Crowne Plaza, f/k/a the Hanalei Hotel is a gem in the crown of Tiki culture in San Diego. Fabulous decor, amazing drinks at the hotel bar, lagoons and a great pool. Go to Islands Sushi Bar and ask for Leonard---------he is the MAN and makes some killer rolls.
