  • Crowne Plaza Irvine - Orange County Airport

    This hotel is great for one type of guest, the traveling business person. It is a short cab ride, shuttle, or even walk given the weather is nice away from the airport. It has all the amenities such a person would want such as a clean weight room, lap pool, basketball court, and even a small putting green. This is where the fun stops. Building appearance from the outside looks modern and dignified, upon entering it is a different story. There is a light pink or purple or combination of the both the hotel uses as its central color including inside the rooms. Speaking of the rooms, they are pretty standard. There is a large dresser with a small desk adjacent and large bed taking up the majority of the space. Overall it is a fine hotel close to the airport.

  • Crowne Plaza Irvine - Orange County Airport

    I had serious mixed feelings about this hotel. The location was great for business travelers - located in the center of Orange County’s business district, but still within 15-30 minutes of local attractions including South Coast Plaza shopping center, Orange County Performing Arts Center, John Wayne Airport, Newport Beach and Disneyland. The hotel from the outside looks modern, unfortunately the decor in the lobby area and the rooms were outdated and a little too cookie cutter. The peach-ish tan color scheme in the rooms just seemed so neutral. A pleasant surprise was the great activities at the hotel including a full-court basketball court, putting practice green, indoor heated pool, spa and fitness center with both cardio equipment and free weights. The employees were quick to greet you and ensure your needs are met. The hotel is comfortable and convenient, but I wasn’t wowed in my experience.

    Staying here for a conference. The hotel is well equipped to do so. Very nice setting and the meeting rooms are adequate. I like the fact that there's free wif-fi in the entire building no matter where you are. the restaurant is very good as well.

    Our first impression of the Crowne Plaza Irvine came via our courteous and professional host, Gabby, who assisted us with directions to the hotel. We arrived early and our room was not available yet, which was okay because we were ready for lunch. We gave Gabby our number and headed out on the town. Within minutes of leaving Gabby called to say our room would be ready when we returned. It was nice to have someone take the time to keep us informed. And,s he was also very helpful by providing suggestions for local places to dine and explore on our trip.

    The room was very spacious and comfortable. There are dataport available at the desk so we could hook into our laptop, and there is voicemail so we would not miss any messages while we were out. If we needed print out a presentation or additional services, the business center was available 24-hour a day, and there wireless high-speed Internet access in lobby so we could stay connected to the office.

    In the evening we decided to order take out and just put our feet up. With the Crowne Plaza Sleep Advantage® Program you enjoy Quiet Zones, which is great. And, the special Sleep Amenities like Lavender spray for your pillow made us feel right at home since we use lavender at night on a regular basis.

    When it came time for breakfast we enjoyed the Breakfast Buffet, which had a great selection of fresh produce as well as common breakfast selections. There is also a Chef on hand to cook a omelet if you prefer. The waitress and waiters were always there to refill our coffee before we asked. There was also a Lounge, and a nice gift shop on site so you can purchase any necessities needed during your trip.

    The excellent service we received during our stay at the Crowne Plaza Hotel really stood out because the staff anticipated what we would need. From calling us about our room to providing great directions when needed them; everyone who we spoke to was very helpful. This is especially great when planning a conference or business function at the Crowne Plaza Hotel; knowing their professional team is there to assist you takes off the pressure so you can focus on the business at hand. And, they speak several languages; including Arabic, Chinese, English, French, as well as Spanish, which is important when it comes to communicating and understanding your business or personal needs.

    With the Crowne Plaza Hotel being located near the Orange County Airport, and the highway is just up the road it does offer a ideal location for business function. Not only do they have shuttle service to the Airport, they also offer service to area businesses.

    When not working there are plenty of attractions to enjoy nearby that include Disneyland and California Adventures. For those who want to shop there is The District, Fashion Island, and the Irvine Spectrum Center, which has beautiful European architecture. Nearby is also the Performing Arts Center and South Coast Repertory Center, and plenty of outdoor recreation to enjoy. So whether you are traveling for business or pleasure the Crowne Plaza Hotel offers everything you need!
