“Nice Hotel for a Brief Stay”
Reviewed December 16, 2011

I stayed at the crowne plaza as a late night rest stop on a trip with friends. I checked in very late (past midnight) and left first thing in the morning so I did not get to absorb the hotel room and surroundings. Upon check in, the staff was very friendly and welcoming, I requested a room type last min. and they were able to accommodate my request even though I booked through a third party hotel website. The hotel lobby was kept up nice and is what you would expect from a beach resort. The room was clean with everything you need and very little noise from outside or other rooms. The pool and hot tub area was very nice with an amazing view of the water and hills to the south. Now for the cons: Room was starting to look old and dated, old television, strange bathroom door, and only 2 open power outlets to charge your electronics. Also the beds were not that comfortable (kinda firm) and you will notice some wear and tear if you take a close look around the room. All and all though the hotel was nice for the rate I paid, and the staff was very accommodating, if you want a quick place to stay for a rest and do not care about the little things that make 4 star resorts special, this place should fit your needs

Room Tip: make sure you specify a smoking or non smoking room, and try to get a room that does not have a view...

Pros: Located in quiet Redondo right near the pier and waterside activities. Spacious lobby. Lots of meeting space. Good Priceline rate.

Cons: Priceline guests will get a handicapped or smoking room. My second time in the same handicapped room. Wi-fi is an extra charge. Parking on-site is $23.00 per day. Meters near hotel have been changed to 24 hour enforcement. Walk 3-4 blocks into residential area to park for free. Cleaning in rooms spotty... don't look behind the furniture (which is worn, scratched and stained) Electrical in room needs upgrade, even the 6-outlet tap added to the outlet near the desk is totally worn. Jiggle the cord to get something to work!

Very clean and comfortable hotel. The view from our room was great, facing the ocean and Redondo Beach Pier. Great rooftop pool and tennis court. The pool was very warm and open year round. Nice sleep package with eye mask, lavender pillow spray and ear plugs. Walking distance to shops and restaurants on the Pier. Made for a great night walk, all the way down to Redondo Beach for a nice toe dip in the ocean! Very friendly people working at the registration counter. Everyone had smiles on every time we went downstairs.

Room Tip: Choose a room that is not on an angle, ocean front/street front was incredible with great views.

located overlooking the water and Kings Harbor this is a great spot to access the beach but not the craziness of being on the beach. This is the harbor area where the blue whales came past recently. On the 4th of July you can see great fireworks displays. They offer some great places to eat close by or if you want just walk over to Whole Foods a block away and get some grub for your room. Staff was good and they also had a very nice health club set up. I would highly recommend this if you are staying in the area.

Room Tip: the view south or west or east are good. skip the north facing. Be sure to rent a bike and ride up...

The hotel was great for the price, we got an awesome deal for $55.00 per night. The location is ideal for being literally steps from the boardwalk. The rooms are adequate and clean. The pool and jacuzzi were clean. The pillows could use an update though. Parking in my opinion was a bit much at $26.00 per day. The weather while we were there was rainy so that put a damper on our beach time, but otherwise, it was decent.

I will be sure to share your positive comments with the staff. I'm glad that you found your stay to be a great price/value as well.

Please also come back and visit us after we undergo and extensive renovation early next year. I'm sure you will be more than pleased with the new room design.

Regarding your comments on parking charges, I assure you that these charges are fully disclosed on all of our web listings at the time of booking. As you might imagine, parking is tight around the area due to the waterfront location.

Thanks for your comments.

We decided to stay in Redondo Beach at the last minute and got a room on Hotwire.

Nothing special, but overall a good hotel with a Gold Gym connected so you can get your workout on 24/7. Parking is expensive, but it seems as if it is at every hotel (parking is kind of like the baggage fees for airlines!)

The beds were super comfy - the only thing that got me was they had a 30" tube TV. I'm not a diva or anything, but I feel at this point every hotel should have flatscreens. Just to keep it looking modern at least.

Overall the service was great and it was perfect for what we needed. Im sure I would have a lot more to say about the area and ammenities.

Actually in a nice location opposite the Marina, but a bit dated. Check-in was very fussy and talkative, in the end the bill the next morning was still not accurate and did not match the check-in commitments. Anyway, rooms are the usual standard, time for a renovation or make-over. The Portofino 100 meters down the Marina is the better choice.
