Beautiful property and super nice staff. I want to give an "Excellent" rating, but a few detractions were evident: for example the coffee pot was not emptied and cleaned, a used coffee filter pack from the previous guest was left in the coffee pot, the tub would not drain properly -- called maintenance man who removed a lot of hair...

Crowne Plaza is a very nice hotel, similar to Embassy Suites. We chose it for a quick overnight stay and great value. It was just $138, with no extra charge for parking. Similar hotels just a few minutes closer to the airport are $100 more per nite and more and several charged extra for parking. Our room had coffee, refrigerator... More

We stay there every time we visit friends in San Mateo/Foster City. Great location, well appointed rooms, small pool and gym, restaurants and night club on site - all the necessary amenities. Not five stars but very functional and convenient.

Stayed here with my wife and daughter on a short vacation to the Bay Area. The hotel is in a very convenient location for our needs. We drove about 7 miles from the hotel to the Millbrae BART station park and ride and took the train into the city most days. The immediate area around the hotel has plenty of... More

This post is an update to my previous post about the Crowne Plaza. I had misplaced some sentimental items and am happy that I found them in my belongings despite my own negligence of not using the safe. April 2015 stay: We had a spacious, clean, comfortable room with an in-room safe, and refrigerator. It was very quiet but the... More

This hotel is brand new!! Check in process was excellent! We are currently here and loving it! But the so to say "club" and so to say "promoter" or "wanna be" should consider who he is talking to. Don't decline someone to get in at 9.00pm because he is wearing shorts, especially when he comes to pick up a drink... More

Can't fault the location, several minutes off the 101, easy access to Bridgepointe business park, you know what you are getting when you stay at any of the chains, big box hostelry, some points in its favour, no charge for overnight parking which can range from $25 - $35 a night all along the 101, and free breakfast which was...

My nephew booked rooms here for friends and family members flying in for his wedding. It was the perfect location - about 15 minutes from the airport. After a long flight from the east coast followed a wedding rehearsal and jet lag, I was eager to check in at the hotel. The lobby is beautiful - lots of glass, tropical... More

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.
