I stayed at this Crowne Plaza while on business for a total of three nights in September 2014. The hotel, as noted in many reviews, is undergoing renovations. This review ignores them, as they will likely be done by the time others visit. Only the pool was still closed when I stayed. The rooms were comfortable, the bed (king size)... More

They just finished the renovation in the main lobby. The rooms are clean and the hotel is very well maintained. The front desk personal was very friendly and made their best effort to accommodate my requests. I stayed at this hotel several times and plan to stay there many more.

The rooms are what you would expect of the Crowne Plaza brand - nicely done and very clean. There were plenty of plugs and the bathroom was a nice size. All was where it should be. Not much to do in the immediate area if you don't have a car but the restaurant in the property was very nice and... More

I stayed at Crowne Plaza Foster City for 5 nights on a business trip. There aren't many choices for hotels in the Foster City area and my colleagues recommended the Crowne Plaza because it offered the 'most hotel like' experience in that area. I'll continue to recommend to my colleagues making the same business trip. Positives 1. Great bed -... More

The room size, quality of bed and amenities are very good. Very comfortable bathroom with storage under the sink to store your own toiletries. They provide a safe and a small refrigerator in the armoire/ TV stand. Our room had a king bed and also a sleeper sofa. The space between the end of the bed and the armoire/TV stand... More

This is a bit of a low frills hotel that serves it's purpose - a room, a bed, food. They've got room service so you can have that quiet night in with your work or a movie. They've got a breakfast buffet with all the right stuff and, hey bonus, it changes slightly everyday. They are currently doing some renovation... More

When there for business. Location was great it was walking distance from Gilead. Staff was very accommodating. Clean rooms, room service was great, the restaurants in the hotel were decent and there is a good Mexican restaurant one block away. I would stay again.

A family member booked 4 rooms for us at this hotel, as we were dealing with a sudden and tragic death in the family and were in town for the funeral. First, let me say that most of the hotel staff could not have been nicer. I am so grateful to them for their compassion and their hospitality. But what... More

I went back to this property after 19 years. I stayed there for two nights for business. They recently went through renovations and it is very nice.

The facilities are good, but the experience is always mixed. Room preference - in particular noise level - is heavily influenced by proximity to freeway, hotel atrium, and/or bistro/bar. Aircon also very loud in rooms. Staff knowledge, responsiveness, and friendliness is highly variable.
