Crowne Plaza Hotel Corobici
Ranked #17 of 78 Hotels in San Jose
Reviewed June 26, 2014

Held a four day meeting at this property and was very impressed with the level of service we received. The food was also quite good for being banquet food. There is a lot more meeting space than you would think although some of it is strangely configured. The traffic getting to the hotel in the morning was a bit tough for the participants but it's location makes it a perfect compromise for participants traveling from both directions.

I was again more than satisfied with my stay. This is truly a five star experience the hotel has everything you need and no reason to leave the property should you be so inclined. I enjoyed the restaurants and casino and even bought some small gifts at the gift store. They have a very nice casino with polite staff and although I lost yet again, I had a great time. Room was nice, mini bar, coffee maker and plenty of pillows. Internet worked great throughout the hotel and my room.

Stayed five nights in a king bed room on 6th floor which includes the club room. That amenity was very nice, very comfortable, with a nice panoramic view and a free breakfast and happy hours. The food was always fresh, tasty, and well presented. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The guest room itself was very clean and comfortable but we wished it was a bit larger for a five night stay. (typical American expectations I admit). It did have a GREAT A/C, TV, bed, pillows, linens, and comfortable but tight seating area. The bathroom was clean and nice but only one sink which disappointed my wife. The shower was very clean with good hot water and good water pressure, but we wished the shower itself was a little larger and more comfortable getting in and out of. The bathroom is a little crowded for two people trying to get morning ready at the same time. The hotel has a huge open atrium with a bar/lounge area, shop, and a casino at the opposite end. There is an excellent Japanese restaurant in the hotel with very good food and excellent service. One of the best things about the hotel is the HUGE fitness center with an outdoor courtyard spa/hot tub. There is also a huge courtyard pool with lots of undercover seating and tables. Immediately adjacent to this is a very nice American style restaurant for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. There is not much around the hotel except some commercial businesses but you can walk a block or three to a Burger King, McDonalds, the Central Park, and the National museum. I am not sure but I do believe there are a couple of local restaurants within walking distance as well. Be careful of the bustling speeding traffic and the crumbling curbs and broken sidewalks. But the streets are surprisingly clean with no trash or debris blowing around. I would not recommend walking around the area late at night, same as thousands of other city areas around the world. Yes, I would definitely stay at the Crowne Plaza again.

On the positive side, the hotel is clean, safe, comfortable beds and quite spacious rooms, polite staff, handily situated between airport and central San José, However, the décor needs a major overhaul - I stayed on the Club Floor and the rooms are decorated in orange, brown, and mud green - like walking into the 1970s. Bathrooms are spacious but the baths themselves are tiny and uncomfortable. My shower head was old and spattered out water all over the place. No shower gel or bath gel amongst the toiletries which was very strange (nice high quality shampoo, conditioner and body lotion was a plus). Location is handy but depressing - views of a run down high way and shopping centre. Breakfast on the Club Floor was unacceptably poor - very minimal choice, fruit looked and tasted as though it had been out since the night before, coffee tasteless, orange juice was not fresh and tasted cheap. Front desk staff were friendly and polite but didn't seem very well trained - I asked where the nearest beauty salon was to get a blowdry and pedicure and could I get assistance to make an appointment; it took at least 10 minutes for the lady at the front desk to find out (surely this can't be an unusual request at a 5 star international hotel?!) and then she called a taxi and handed me the phone to tell the taxi driver where it was as she said she didn't know! All in all, an ok experience but I would not choose to stay here again.

This was one of many hotels I stayed in on my trip to Costa Rica and it was one of the best for cleanliness, service and quality. My boyfriend and I had our things stolen (not in San Jose) and needed somewhere nice to relax and catch up on sleep. We were very pleased to have found this place. Very clean and spacious rooms, and the service was excellent. The girls at reception were especially friendly. Recommended, we would have stayed longer than the on night but unfortunately the prices increased during the week as it's popular during business hours.

Room Tip: Great if needing to visit an Embassy (UK, US…) in San Jose.

The hotel is located quite far from the city center but there are some restaurants and shops in the nearby. The staff at the front desk were really friendly and professional. Our check-in took only few moments, my IHG Platinum status was recognised and we got a very nice upgrade to the Club floor. The room was spacious and clean, the same bathroom. WiFi was fast. Club Lounge offered some good snacks, drinks and small breakfast buffet in the morning. Service was good too. The hotel has small outdoor pool with bar/restaurant. Overall very nice experience.

Well the Casino isn't quite beside the bedroom but its on the ground floor within easy reach if you fancy a quick gamble.
As a city hotel this is pleasant enough and certainly functional. Staff are pleasant. Food in the restaurant is good and plentiful. The hotel is within a 15 minute taxi journey of the centre of San Jose (about US€6). There isn't much of interest in the general vicinity of the Hotel.
Ok for an overnight stay.
