Fodor's Review

A 12-story hotel with an enviable location on the beach and next to a historic pier, the Crowne Plaza is also 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. The hotel has been upgrading all rooms to include new beds, microwaves and refrigerators, high-definition TVs, and a fresh contemporary look, so be sure to ask for an already renovated

room. The hotel's restaurant (not bad) and bar have ocean views, too—for a fabulous So-Cal moment, grab a seat on the patio if the weather's good.
