The hotel was pretty nice and the rooms were very large. This was an unexpected benefit. The bathroom was big too. My only complaint in the bathroom were the pedestal sinks. There is no place to lay a hair dryer, brush, lotion, etc. The food in the restaurant was average but the staff were quite friendly, helpful and offered good... More

We fortunately got a decent AAA weekend rate at his ordinary business hotel. Room was OK except for the tiny toilet and slippery tub with inadequate grab bars. Bed was fine and identical to 10,000 similar business hotels throughout America. Two sleepy attendants working for tips at the entrance became disinterested in us as soon as we said we would...

Dylan and staff are outstanding. Talk about customer service. Clean room and I asked for bottled water and I was brought two free bottles. I asked for ice and he brought that also even though there was an ice maker on my floor. Great experience and I will definitely stay at a Crowne Plaza above Marriott next time. My business... More

We chose the Crowne Plaza for its proximity to the Stanford University campus on a reunion weekend, and it did not disappoint. This is an older property that has been totally refurbished. It used to be the Cabana Hotel, owned by Doris Day. The renovations have kept it fresh and clean. The "extra" that we did not know about is... More

Staff was very nice and helpful from the moment I arrived. Check in was smooth easy and fast. Parking is also an additional charge, cannot remember exactly what the cost was for self parking versus valet parking.
