We are finishing up a 5 night stay at this property, our third stay in 6 years. We were assigned the executive tower on floor 5. No gala was planned, and everything was quiet. Rooms have been redone in contemporary style. Sushi restaurant changed hands but food there and at restaurants still good. When our son only ate oatmeal at... More

Just spent 2 nights there. Really nice hotel recently renovated rooms, polite staff. But the loud music kept us up very late. Bring ear plugs if you plan to sleep. We called the front desk a couple of times and we're told they were having a "gala" and the music would stop after 11p. We'll my flight was at 630a... More

My employer has an office in San Mateo, and so I frequently stay at hotels in this area. On my last trip, my standard hotels were all sold out, and so I stayed at the Crowne Plaza for 4 nights. The staff were very kind, but the hotel itself was fundamentally gross. The first (non-smoking) room smelled strongly of smoke,... More

the receptionist was not friendly at check in. She did not smile not one time! I was there for my retirement party so while i checked in i asked about the party :she acted as though she didnt know what i was talking about! I was disappointed i paid 112.00 and breakfast was NOT included. Never again!

I stayed here because it was within easy walking distance of where I needed to be for a business trip. The hotel provides a shuttle bus service to and from SFO Int Airport but they only run every hour on the hour. My experience was that even if you ring to let them know you've arrived at the airport and... More

I purposely chose this location because it was decently close to SFO but far enough away that we would not be subjected to the noise from the air traffic. I checked in close to 3pm and was offered a choice of different rooms in the 2 different towers. The front desk was nice enough to let me know up front... More

The Crowne Plaza in Foster City is really nice. I found the staff friendly, the rooms were big and the beds comfy. Breakfast is everything you could possibly want! The waffles, pancakes, maple syrup and strawberries were my favourite. Huge mountains of them laid out on the table, heaven. Not good if you're on a diet at any stage! There's... More

This is a hotels that is appropriately rated 3.5 stars. Sadly, it has the potential of being a 4.5+ star property. It looks like management is neglecting key areas, cleaning, maintenance and promptly fixing dings and scrapes that so quickly accumulate. The rooms are nice: furnishings and bedding is the rooms are comfortable. The common areas are nicely appointed but... More
