To Fellow Travelers, If you are planning a visit to SFO and want to stay at a quiet yet well placed, easily accessible hotel and good facilities, you should definitely go for Crowne Plaza. The room was well equipped and service was great. Morning breakfast could be served in your room if you leave your order before 10:00pm and it... More

Just a crown plaza in the middle of no where. The room was comfortable and mostly clean. Their free internet was slow. Better bandwidth on a 4g phone. The staff was friendly. For $300 a night it was just average

If you need a pitstop before SFO from Santa Cruz or further, this location is next to freeway. Next street is McDonalds and even Target. Free parking. I had a king size bed to share with gf but it's a rather high to climb up. Probably I'm petite. Lol. Only dislike is they place coffee marker in the bathroom. Weird.

I stayed for the first time at Crowne Plaza - Foster City this past week. I had a room in the Executive Tower. As you can see from the photos, the rooms are very spacious, and beautifully decorated with a modern, masculine vibe. Bathroom was great with granite countertop with lots of room to spread out (they were thinking of... More

It's hard sometimes to find a great hotel with lots of amenities but look no further! The crown plaza had good looking rooms and restaurants! If your a breakfast person, the buffet was amazing! They even had an omelette and waffle station! The next time your visiting the bay, you must stay at the Crown Plaza hotel! You won't be... More

Hotel was very clean, staff were pleasant, great bar in the hotel! Called for extra towels and that took a few requests before we actually received any. Breakfast buffet was very good and worth the price.

I called the guest service to ask them to lower the volume, they were not able to do anything. The second time I called, they started... More

We typically enforce a "no party" rule in all guest rooms and handle noise complaints very strictly. Although this is the first time we've heard that our staff has allowed music until 2:00 AM, the behavior of our staff is... More
