Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CaptB Comforable room
My overall experience here was good. The staff was friendly. The facilities are great and location is nice. There were two reasons for downgrading my experience. The room smelled a little murky. A little musty, a little dirty. Nothing that a carpet shampoo wouldn't care of I'm sure. My room was on the 880 side of the hotel. The road noise is noticeable, but not enough to keep me from sleeping. A light sleeper might wish to be in another room.

Without doubt I choose CROWNE PLAZA over other mid-East Bay Area hotels - the staff is friendly, attentive, and takes sincere interest in my stay quality.
Whenever visiting the Nor Cal Semiconductor area, I always check room availability at CROWNE PLAZA first - and its room rates are very area-reasonable.

I have stayed at this Crowne Plaza multiple times. Front desk service was very good. Room was dark & quiet at night. Wi-fi was decent (1 meg download in the evenings). With the exception of the lobby (which is quite nice), the facility & breakfast felt more like a Holiday Inn than a typical Crowne Plaza. The price when I stayed was very affordable (comparable to a Holiday Inn Express).
Easy access to I-880. Good for business in Oakland, but a bit far away for vacation in San Francisco. I had a free drink & breakfast coupons as a Priority Club member.

I like the location of the CP, close to all my customer in this area, cross the fwy is the shopping mall, and great Chinese food near by. I special like the "quite zone", which the hotel pre-screen the guest, who like to be relax in a quite floor. The breakfast food may need some improvement, but it serve my need as a quick a easy BF.

I travel alot, and stay in many of the Holiday Inn products12-15 times per month
This facility is a Crown Plaza ?? supposed to be the upper end of the Holiday Inn group. It hardly resembles any Crown Plaza I have ever been in.
The front desk staff cant be any better, they are professionals
Beautilful woman named Natalia give her a raise, main reason for returning is her service level . Robert excellent too. new guy they are the night check in crew
The bartender(paul) is also excellent, and entertaining as evidenced by many travelers who return often and he knows their names.The food is pretty good too, no need to leave for a restaurant. Recent chef change has helped alot
The issue I have with this place is the rooms. depending on what room you you get in the "Tower" tubs have rust on the drains, plumbing fixtures are old, bad tile,old dated furnishing. No microwaves or refridgerators, just very low end room for a hotel that is a "Crown Plaza". The Holiday Inn Express right across the freeway is much nicer, but they also charge more, but have no bar or food.Too bad. Overall its a great value. The owners just need to spend a buck and upgrade...please. does corporate ever come by and see this ?? guss not

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JGH0408 A nights stay for me while on the road needs some help.
I stay at the Union City Crowne Plaza 2 to 3 nights per month while on business. I have stayed here over (25) times.
The first floor rooms have a musty smell due to a moisture problem. The hall ways are either cold during the winter months or hot during the summer months.
The worst part of the stay has always been the bathrooms which have never been cleaned to Crowne Plaza Standards I'm sure!
Hair on the floor and rusty tub drains along with dim shower lighting is the downside.
However, I find it hard to beat the service that I get from other facilities that I stay at over (100 ) nights per year.
The front desk (Robert) & (Natalia) are the BEST IN THE BUSINESS!! They both will go over and above to find me a room when I call. "Yes, Mr. Hansen your room will be ready when you arrive . This is called................" GREAT SERVICE!!!
The Cons:? I don't want to drive anymore than I have already put myself throughout the day and would like to complete my stay with an in house dinner. The dinner menu is "OLD" and never updated! Fresh vegetables and non frozen foods do not exsist here! The Menu needs help before the ship sinks!!
I do eat on site only because I enjoy the company of the Lounge Captain (Paul) who has a great entertaining personality and knows how to treat a guest of this establishment. If Paul is not the best bar tender of an in house lounge, then I don't know who is! Paul greets all guest's that enter the room with an welcome greeting and "What can I get you".
This again is Called "GREAT SERVICE"
The menu must change from the frozen vegetables and canned sauce items that should be disconcerting for this establishment.
I hope management reads this review and responds.
