This area of California wasn't entirely what I was expecting. The Crowne, however, lived up to expectations. I loved that the rooms opened onto a balcony, the amenities were clean, we had use of pool, spa, and tennis court (all of which we used). We also enjoyed meeting the locals at the spa as the Gym underneath shares facilities with the hotel. It's a very quiet area though, certainly after the hustle and bustle of Anaheim. We had a gorgeous dinner in the restaurant one night, the waiter couldn't have been more helpful. As expected, meals were a little expensive. Great to have the free shuttle to and from the Malls. Overall a relaxing experience.
