3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

if you have business in the San Mateo area the hotel is a convenient option. rooms are functional and adequate. the sports bar is the highlight with great screens and pretty good food. the Japanese restaurant is also not bad. there are also good dining options in the nearby Bridgepointe Mall area.

I called the front desk to ask about a reservation as I was booking it online because I wanted to make sure they had what I needed. I called Friday July 2nd very late at night and the male who picked up was extremely rude to me and told me to go back online and figure it out because he... More

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.

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
