“Stuck in another era.”
Reviewed 20 May 2012

What could be a fantastic hotel is not as it needs remodeling desperately. The whole property is stuck in a 60s Hawaiin theme. Roooms are clean and ours had a great double sink in the bath. Unfortunately it appears the rooms and hotel have not had a major renovation in decades. The elevators have got to be the slowest on record. The staff was friendly and helpful. Over all an okay hotel but not up to Crowne Plaza standards simply because of the outdatedness.

We have used the Crowne Plaza hotel for 2 previous reunions of our retired/former military association and were pleased with our stay. We booked again for 2012 and could not have been more satisfied with the services provided by the Sales Manager, the Meetings Director, the Banquet Manager, and the Banquet Captain for our events. They were informative,helpful, and easy to work with. We found the rooms excellent, and the coffee shop staff efficient and friendly. The front desk personnel were helpful in every respect. The General Manager promptly followed up on the results of our event. Although we're a small group, we did use 24 rooms, had about 60 members at our reception and 112 members at our banquet. We will most certainly use this hotel again for the 4th time when we reunite on the West Coast in about 2 years. Highly recommended: *****!

Stayed here for a few days for a conference.

The hotel had good amenities with a pool, ample parking, fitness centre and fantastic Sushi bar on site.

The room was large by European standards; however some of my colleagues from the US moaned they were a bit on the small side - come on how much space does one person need anyway!

Staff at front desk were particularly unhelpful and disinterested but the other bar staff/cleaning were all very jovial.

Located close to the interstate and only a short drive to downtown and right next to fashion valley mall.

Overall a good hotel, would recommend this over the Town and Country next door.

This Hotel had everything available we needed. It was close to all area attractions. The staff were professional and attentive to our needs. Everyone was super friendly. I would definitely stay at this Hotel when in the area. Could not ask for better service.

As advised by fellow travelers, I requested golf course view when making a reservation via Courtyard website (very low non-refundable rate by the way), and it was fantastic as the room was on 8th floor - very peaceful and quiet.
Yes, the hotel was built long time ago and you can tell right away by the building layout and room design. But they do the best with it - everything is clean and comfortable.
Parking is extra, but with low room rate, it was still cheap compared to the same level of hotels in the area.
