“Good location for marina and restaurants”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Chose this hotel because we were visiting friends in Palos Verdes nearby.

Approached by road from LAX and unnerved by sight of large power station close to hotel but shouldn't have been as you mostly forget it is there during your stay.

Minutes from beach and pier. 19 miles of running and bicycling paths immediately outside. Ask for sea view. Breakfast in Rubys opposite hotel. Dinner in Kincaids over the water to watch the sunset

Grand reception area and lobby replete with large fish tank. Popular with wedding parties. Large quiet bedroom with good-sized bathroom. Writing desk and chair in room.

Pool, jacuzzi and European spa plus free use of the ginormous Gold's gym located at south end of the hotel. Complimentary transportation to area's shopping malls.

Reef Bar offers cosy drinks place at the end of the day. Friendly cocktail waiter.

For peace of mind and security I opted for the parking which was $23 per night in the hotel's secure car park, although there is plenty on-road parking round about.

Room safe broken pre-arrival. Fixed on engineer's second visit. No servicing of room on Sunday. Room fridge was like a deep freeze, with no obvious temperature control, froze a bottle of champagne!

VIP Tours pick up/drop off from hotel for all tourist destinations in LA and surroundings so this makes a good destination if you want to stay out of LA on the beach. Although we would probably elect to stay at the adjacent, more up-market Manhattan Beach nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view.

Your comments were overall very complimentary, and I thank you for that! I am sorry about the problems you experienced with the in-room safe and refrigerator. My biggest concern is that you did not get service from Housekeeping on Sunday, I will follow up on that with our Executive Housekeeper.
Hope you come back and stay with us again soon, I think that Redondo Beach is even nicer than the beaches to the north of us, but I am a BIT prejudiced, I will admit!

Was looking for a quick get away near a beach with some fun activities and great weather. Redondo Beach was a good choice. Crowne Plaza is in the middle of all the action with a short walk to 2 clean beaches, restaurants and the Redondo Beach Pier. Unless you plan to go travek around town, a car is not required. Parking is almost $25 a day, so I suggest renting a car locally for the days you need it.

Everything you need is less than a 15 minute walk away, or you can rent a bike from the hotel and go to Hermos or Venice Beach along the paved paths.

I enjoyed using the Gold's Gym next door and the hotel pool was a great place to relax.

They certainly have a great location but the rooms are well under par. For a Holiday family hotel they need to take some queues from their brethren. I have stayed there 4 times in the last few years because they were the cheapest for our group to stay for some national meetings in Torrance. The breakfast at the local restaurant is good but they were way over priced compared to the bar across the street. In the end if it suites your needs to be in Redondo its not bad but its not that great and the parking ramp has a very severe angle at the entrance and exit.

I am sorry that you were unhappy with the condition of you room. We are starting our renovation on September 2nd and expect to complete it by December 15th, and you will be thrilled when you see the new scheme. I only hope that you will return again; it seems that you stayed with us several times in the past.
Regarding the garage, this is the first time I have seen a comment about the angle of the driveway. Due to the way the garage is situated off the street, there is not much we can do about this, but it does provide a convenient, secure place for our guests to park their vehicles.
We look forward to your next visit.

HORRIBLE... Wallet and Iphone was stolen room was disturbed
The staff appologized and DID nothing and never took responsabilites for anything claiming that their insurance departement will help me wich they never did

I also called the police that told me that lot's of incidents happen in this hotel.

I got NOTHING except free phone calls to cancel my credit and debit card ..What a Joke

Also rooms are dirty and hotels need lot's of updating

Take care and you ever go there BE SAFE !!!!

The hotel from the lobby looks great, but the rooms are definitely in need of updating. They were clean, but the style of furniture looked old. The bathroom was marginal. Water would not drain quickly in the sink, and the wallpaper was peeling up at the seams. Flushing the toilet sounded like you were in a airplane bathroom, it was very loud and obnoxious. We had a hard time getting a room the weekend we were there because of the ESPY's and wanted to stay close to LAX. Would not stay there again for the price that it cost us, over $300 with taxes and parking, which is too much for a outdated place like this.

Overall, it was a good 2 night stay at this hotel. The room was spacious and clean, but in serious need of updating. The bathtub was a little disconcerting, Rusting on the tub floor looked like blood at first glance. The tub did not fuly drain while showering (room 2025). The bathroom doors were annoying, noisy, and old. The pillows gave me a sore neck the next morning due to going very flat during the night. The staff everywhere was cheerful and willing to help, especially the bellmen. One bellman came all the way out to the parking lot to help with our luggage. Another bellman helped us by filling up a cooler with ice for a picnic we were going to. And, he even loaded it into our vehicle for us. The "water view" room that I booked was non-existent, unless I hung my head over one tiny corner of the very tiny balcony and squinted one eye, then maybe I could see an itty bitty dot of water. Breakfast was not included in our reservation, but that's okay because Polly's across the street on the pier was outstanding. (cash only place/ATM nearby). Appreciated the laundry room close to our room. Excellent safe location near pier, shops, restaurants. Small pool and jacuzzi, both full. Older women using pool for water aerobics kind of discouraged us from taking advantage of the pool. Good deal providing access to Gold's Gym next door. Annoying parking fees of $23 a day. Despite all the negatives, I enjoyed my stay due to the overall attitude of the staff. Here, service made all the difference. Without them, the Crowne Plaza would have disappointed.

Room Tip: Ask for description of water view when booking a "water view" room.
