Nice Hotel and not really anything big to complain about. Pro's are the contemporary design (can not really expect that from a Crowne Plaza in US), friendly staff, nice pool. I also appreciated to receive free parking as Platinum Priority Club member. There are - by the way - plenty parking opportunities at the Hotel and disagree with statements made by other travelers that the Hotel does not have enough parking. They have plenty! I would personally always recommend having a car here because the really nice beach (North Hollywood state park) requires a car to get to - the beach opposite the hotel is no match.
The positive experience is rounded off by high quality HD TV, good beds and good A/C system.
Only two slight negatives I have: the rooms could be slightly cleaner (e.g. sofa in room has many stains, some dark spots in shower and corners in bathroom ... well ...). Overall not a disaster and nothing where I would say it was a major issue, but obviously I noticed and thus not ideal ... Last but not leas: the Internet connection is a disaster. Frequently line connection terminates and when it stays on it is terribly slow. Downloading from iTunes is impossible - about 7 hours for a 22 minute TV show - where the download always stalls after two hours. :-(
But again: overall quite positive experience and would definitely come back (again)
