Fodor's Review

A 12-story hotel with an enviable location on the beach and next to a historic pier, the Crowne Plaza is within walking distance of downtown restaurants and nightlife. All rooms have balconies and ocean views of some sort—ask for a room on the west or north side to catch the sunsets. A 2014 makeover gave the hotel a fresh contemporary look, and all rooms now have new beds, microwaves, refrigerators, and high-definition TVs. The hotel's restaurant (not bad) and bar have ocean views, too. For a fabulous So-Cal moment, grab a seat on the patio near the fire pit if the weather's good.
