Here for a conference at the hotel. Conference area is not huge (which I like). Property has three restaurant options, include a sushi, which is quite good. Staff are pleasant, great check-in host. Rooms are nicely equipped, and easy to work in. Work out area is moderate in size, but isn't one where they just converted a guest room. It...

Very nice upscale hotel in Foster City, California. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty and were very professional and accommodating. The shuttle bus drivers were always prompt and got us where we needed to be. Room service was great as was the morning breakfast buffet. The bed was very comfortable and refreshing. There were a couple...

Stayed here for a week on my business trip to Foster City. The location is perfect and staff is very helpful. The gym is good. And like the lobby and ambiance. It has a good in-house bar. Quality service levels are excellent!

Stayed at the Crowne Plaza while visiting family for Thanksgiving. Location is right by 92 freeway and is great to travel to surrounding areas. Although we didn't do this, they had an incredible Thanksgiving Day brunch. If not for having plans, would have definitely taken advantage of this. Only issue was that I found the bed to be a little...

A bit dated in the lobby etc but I'm a fan of this hotel. Rooms are fine. A bit generic and average but not at all bad. Lobby is huge and there is a giant area for breakfast w a koi pond etc. All good although something about it reeks of the 90's. There is a very large sports bar...

I work in both SF and Sj when I go up to northern California and this hotel is at a great location for me. Near the airport and halfway between the two expensive Cities and I get a great rate. Free Parking, Free Breakfast (when you book the right package) and I stay in executive suites that have breakfast served...

This is my second time staying at this hotel, so I knew what to expect. It's fine for a mid-range business hotel. The rooms are quiet, the beds are comfortable, the locations is OK, and the free parking is appreciated. Where this hotel is lacking is customer service. When I arrived, there were two people at the check-in desk. One...

Located right by the beautiful bay, but don't expect to see it. Views from this hotel include the parking lot, the street, the freeway. For the first 30 hours of our 48 hours we couldn't get over the smell of bleach that inhabits the lobby and hallways. We couldn't eat there, again the bleach smell. We booked this hotel based...

We travelled on an extended family vacation. Didn't feel like dealing with rental houses to took up 4 rooms at the Crowne Plaza. Great hotel staff. Easy driving to various area in SFO area. Rooms and bathrooms were clean. Breakfast was pricey for 12 people. Overall positive experience

I was trying to decide where to stay after arriving at SFO, and decided to head south. I ended up here after booking on Hotwire. The hotel was fine, there was no charge for parking. The front desk staff was nice, and the hotel had an interesting setup (with a waterfall). The room was clean and comfortable. The wifi also...
