Crowne Plaza Foster City - San Mateo
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Foster City
Reviewed 16 February 2012

The hotel is located 10 minutes from the airport and you can get to San Francisco in about 30 minutes with good traffic. Located next to the 101 highway.
Lobby of the hotel is nicely decorated and there are 3 places to eat at the hotel; a pub, sushi place and the main lobby cafe.
Rooms are clean.
The hotel is a good fit for business travel to the Bay area.

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the highway. It's a little bit noisy if your bedroom faces the highway...

I stayed at this hotel for six days which can seem like forever when you are on a business trip. After the second day, I felt like everyone knew my name and asked how my day was. The breakfast food was excellent and worth every penny for the buffet. They had so many choices for dinner that I didnt even get to try it all before I left. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone near San Francisco!

Room Tip: If you can afford it get one of the executive suites. The walk out balcony was amazing and it was gr...

I stayed in the executive tower on the 7th floor. Despite looking out over the freeway the noise level was very low and I slept well. Otherwise the room was generally OK.The breakfast included in the rate was very poor. The breakfast menu in the main area was much better but of course you had to pay for it. The gym was small with little choice of equipment. The main desk was efficient and helpful.

Room Tip: If you're in the "executive" tower then get a high floor. If you're in the main b...

Our family of three from Sacramento spent a night at this hotel with the expressed purpose, then, of leaving our car at the hotel while we traveled in Chile for 2 weeks. As a package arrangement, charges for our room included the room, parking for the duration of our travels, and shuttle transportation from the hotel to the airport in San Francisco and back, on our return. There are a number of such offerings in the Bay Area. Our choice was a very good one.

The hotel was modern, clean and quiet with free Internet and a good exercise facility. The breakfast offering in house was robust and very good. We ate dinner the night of our stay at the Asian restaurant in the hotel and thought the food qutie good and reasonably priced. Staff was friendly and helpful.

The shuttle worked well. Travel to the airport was efficient and on-time. Note that the service to the airport is available hourly, on the hour. On return, the process is to call the hotel and notify it of the need to be picked up at the airport. That worked well, without undue delay. A caveat: the hotel is positioned approximately 10-15 minutes away from the airport, which is not as close as some of its competitors. That said, a major advantage of this hotel is the opportunity to park the car in a covered (but still outdoor) parking lot. Pricing for the package was competitive.

In future travel when use of the airport in San Francisco is in our plans, this hotel will be our choice.

Great hotel for accessing the business district in the region, close to restaurants and SFO. The outside rooms are noisy so get an inside facing room overlooking the restaurant.

Room Tip: Get an Inside facing room away from the night club
