I travel frequently to the bay area and the Crowne is my first choice. The rooms are large and the beds and pillows always make for a comfortable nights sleep. One of the best things about the hotel is that they have two restaurants onsite. There's a japanese / sushi restaurant at the front but I tend to make my... More

My girlfriend and I have stayed at hundreds of hotels and I have traveled the country for business and I have to say that, yes, this property is very nice, the executive suite that we had the pleasure of staying was incredible, but one of the highlights of our visit was getting greeted and checked-in by Zaneel (sp?) at the...

This was my first trip out to the San Fran area in years and I followed a friends advice to stay at the Crowne Plaza. It turned out to be a very good decision. It's only a 1/2 hour from SF airport and an easy drive. Rooms were very clean, comfortable and modern. There is a Japanese restaurant, a sports... More

We stayed at this Crowne Plaza twice during the holidays. The first time was Thanksgiving night, and the second was Christmas Eve. Both stays were perfect. Crowne Plaza is a first class hotel, with first class amenities and service, and very reasonable rates. The rooms are very comfortable, with excellent beds and linens to go along with them. The bathrooms... More

Standard Crowne Plaza hotel. Two main restaurants: Club House Bistro (sports bar) and Japanese food. If you stay in Executive Tower, free breakfast on 7th floor. Free airport shuttle that leaves every hour on the hour.

After our flight was cancelled we were placed at this hotel by the airline. We arrived in the middle of the night to discover a huge party in full swing. Slightly worried we checked in and were warmly greeted. Our room was clean and had a nice modern feel. Once the door closed behind us we couldn't hear any noise... More

While traveling from San Diego to Grants Pass, Oregon between Christmas and New Years, we overnited at the Crowne Plaza in Foster City. Outstanding! Initially we were wowed by the luxury of the lobby and our satisfaction continues as we proceeded and entered our room. This hotel has it all! I highly recommend it for a short stopover or extended... More

I've stayed here for a week while on a business trip. Good hotel, comfortable rooms, good sleep. Ideal if you have a car - close to the airport and companies, about 30 min to downtown San Francisco. The airport shuttle is a plus. Good WiFi signal in all areas. The breakfast was rather dissapointing for the price, though sufficient. Nice... More

I have stayed at this hotel on approx four occasions and I really like it. It's conveniently located between the airport and my office in Redwood City. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and if you do stay in a suite (I was pleasantly surprised to be upgraded once), this was a huge suite with lot's of nice touches in... More
