My husband and I booked the NYE package which included the room, buffet dinner, buffet brunch, two rooms for dancing, and champagne toast. While it was a lot of fun, I heard from others we were with that had attended the same event previously that the food options were not as good/plentiful as in years past. The rooms were nothing over the top, but were clean and comfortable. We were booked in a room facing the freeway, so the noise level was more than I would've liked. (I live 1/4 mile away from a busy freeway and don't notice that.) The front desk staff member who helped us wasn't too friendly - sorry, I have high expectations for hospitality staff - but the NYE event greeting committee was more than welcoming! Overall, I would recommended this hotel, but ask for a room not facing the freeway.

I recently stayed at the Foster City Crowne Plaza after my mother passed away and the Crown Plaza was fabulous. The check in was smooth and the staff extremely friendly and efficient. The room was clean and well appointed - I especially liked the free computer. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom stocked with plenty of towels and nice amenities. The room was also very quiet which was so important as I needed sleep. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. I loved the free parking and easy access to Highway 92 and Highway 101. Loved the hotel.

I always stay here when I am on the peninsula. This may be the best Crowne Plaza I have ever stayed in. Honestly, the best staff in the game.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MD19426 Nice place near everything
Walking distance to a variety of businesses as well as a nice shopping center and restaurants. Only complaint was the gym. Old equipment, a little dirty but 24 accessability. Room were good and clean. Make sure you stay on top of getting your club points. Mine were missed last visit, but Priority added them right away.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CrownePlazaHotelGuest About average
I stayed here for 3 weeks for work and was overall pretty happy with my stay. For a Crowne Plaza and 3.5 stars it's a great hotel, but there were a few quirks.
- great gym
- hotel restaurants
- free breakfast for executive tower guests
- free parking
- front desk staff
- non-executive tower rooms are outdated
- Cafe Florian staff could use improvement
- the free internet is really slow (there are paid upgrade options)
- not much to do in the area

The hotel and staff are both are great. It would be nice if there were more places to eat within walking distance.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by okbyme What? No restaurant on Friday nights?
Because of "the economy" the restaurant is closed for dinner on Fridays, maybe Saturdays too, I don't know. We had to eat in the Club Bistro bar/lounge and the food was late and cold. The server couldn't have cared less. We were not offered a refund or discount. We ended up not eating 2/3 of the meal.
Breakfast the next day in the restaurant was wonderful. We had a caring and prompt server who saw to our every need. The room was very comfortable and offered a choice of pillow types (including my choice of soft and squishy). There was a convention going on in the hotel, so people were noisy in the halls late at night.
We appreciate that the Crowne Plaza offers a discounted rate for Harvest Festival goers and that's why we stay there.

Great Hotel. Stayed in the Executive side.
The Fitness facility in the 4th floor catwalk helped me to maintain my fitness needs. This sites has pulley machines, pull-up/dip bar, dumbbells (up to 50lb), elliptical, recline bike, and treadmills which had media displays.
The Tokai Japanese Sushi in-house restaurant had fantastic food. My favorites were the 101 and Victoria Secret specialty rolls. Many evening meals were spent with colleagues/friends there.
The Club Bistro is a great place to unwind. Trivia Tuesday was a fun way to challenge the brain while sipping my favorite beverage (Maker's Mark and Diet coke with lime.) and snacking on appetizers Friday and Saturday were hopping starting with a live DJ at 9:00/10:00 and dancing till 1:30 am. It was a Halloween weekend and Saturday also had a costume contest. People were friendly and no issues. Great Techno/House/Dub-Step/Hip-Hop/Latin music.
Over-all a great stay and highly recommended.
Location was close to SFO (9 miles), Half Moon Bay, San Francisco, etc.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dazzy8203 Satisfied stay
I would consider myself pretty selective when choosing a hotel to stay in. I wasn't too familiar with Crowne Plaza, but because of location I was forced to give it a try. I was completely satisfied with my stay. The lobby was nice, the room was nice, the bathrooms nice. I didn't have to pay extra for parking (that is huge in the bay area). My only complaint would be that I was on the first floor, but I didn't ask for anything different and somebody has to be put there so... I WOULD recommend Crowne Plaza :)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bobbydrk Comfortble, but Silly
I often stay at the Crowne Plaza for work trips. The office is located near by and I enjoy walking to work.
The hotel has always been clean an up to date. Definitely a higher end hotel. It's comfortable and very quite inside the hotel.
But beware the hotel is close to the highway and depending on your room you might get some traffic sounds.
My biggest complaint is about the internet. They have a Free Wi-Fi, if you can stand to use it. It's good for things like reminding you what it was like to be on dial up. Part of my development team is in India. I had hoped to have a meeting this them from my room, but the Internet was too slow.
In fairness to the hotel, you can pay to upgrade and get a real connection. I just feel it's silly that in this day and age you are going to charge $10 a night, to have a valid internet connection. I've already paid a decent about amount of money to stay the night, now you are going to nickel and dime me.

Being here, for a near-by convention, we found the staff to be very helpful whenever needed and always provided a smile and a solution. The room service was on time and warm food always ( even as we came in late from our convention booth time ). All employeee's shown as to the pride they take in representing this hotel and the professional teamwork that each department has achieved. working together. Thank you for the pleasant stay and we hope to return to this property in the future.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Anonymous2012 Too loud to sleep
My bf and our 2 young kids stayed here recently while on a weekend getaway to a music festival, we only stayed here becuase we needed a place to sleep and it had an indoor pool. It was nice enough except the beds were uncomfortable and at night it was really loud. They were playing loud music in the courtyard in the middle of the hotel until 2 am. Also, we were annoyed they didn't have a microwave in the room, and the fridge was very small and didnt work properly so we really couldnt use it. Overall, we probably won't be staying here again anytime soon.

I enjoyed myself recently at your Foster City, CA Location. It was my 45TH anniversary for the Class of 1967 From San Mateo High School and my brother's 50TH. I was able to have fun at both.
The staf,f especially the maintenance department, made our stay a wonderful event..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Grandmacarol Room odor
There was an odor in our room that caused my allergies to keep me up all night. We checked out as quickly as we could in the morning. We were supposed to be in a non smoking room but I think the odor was caused by some kind of masking of smoking odor. I blame myself for not asking for a new room when we first got there but I thought the smell would be better after running the air conditioner, but I was wrong.

This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel for an event. The room was excellent. The dinner was horrible! This time I ordered the pasta dish (it was supposed to be risotto but came as spiral pasta) and it was totally overcooked and smelled awful. I am not a picky eater but I couldn't eat this.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 12thfairy Warning
I have stayed here at another time and it was fine. However, I must warn anyone who just may happen to be placed in a room that is above The Bistro/disco. This proved to be the worse experience and to top it off the room was on the freeway side of the building so lots of noise until well after 2:00 am.
Also other guests wandering the halls were very noisy and inconsiderate.
I did mention this upon checking out and was offered an adjustment of which I greatly took and appreciated.
Just make sure you request a room in the other tower away from all the noise.
