Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dano007 Definitely a Place To Stay
The Union City CROWNE PLAZA staff always makes me feel at home; there is no other East Bay area hotel at which I would rather stay!

The CROWNE PLAZA staff ALWAYS makes me feel like a VIP; the front desk staff is ALWAYS attentive! Natalia always makes me feel that I am the most important customer at the front desk - she epitomizes hotel staff standards!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by math1957 Great Service
The desk staff and team were responsive to my needs as a business traveler and I set up my room as a temporary office with their help. They were attentive and responded quickly and affirmatively to my requests. Thanks Union City Crowne Plaza team!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ADesertHare This property should not be a Crowne Plaza
My primary complaint: where is the hot tub? I'll tell you where. It's under about 6 feet of concrete and was there the last time I visited this property. A reasonably disgruntled employee explained that the owner of this property decided that instead of fixing a broken hot tub heating system, they would just backfill the hot tub and fill it with concrete.
Mind you, the hot tub is still listed on the website for the hotel. If I had known this, I would have much rather stayed at the Holiday Inn Express down the street which has provided wonderful service, a working hot tub, and a free breakfast.
Why not just get in the pool? Because it was filled with sunken leaves and didn't look like it has been maintained for a while.
Second complaint, I'm staying in the "executive tower" room. Would you expect that down the hall where there's a sign that says "Vending and Ice Machine" you would find a working vending and ice machine? No! You find an ice machine that is out of service and a Coke machine with a sign that says that Coca-Cola is taking the machine out, so go to the first floor. In fact, the three floors below also have this same sign and broken ice machine. There's nothing executive about this.
The room was reasonably clean and appointed except for towels which seem to be in shortage. I got one face cloth and two towels for a king room. Well, good enough, I guess.
Finally, while I don't play tennis, what is with the "tennis court" on the garage? There's a sign for a tennis court, there's a fence to go around half of a tennis court, and then there's a big leafy puddly mess missing any sign of a court.
This property suffers from neglect. Missing amenities, musty smell, poor maintenance. Long and short, avoid this property and go down the street to the Holiday Inn Express. My opinion of the Crowne Plaza brand has been lowered by other properties, but this one pretty much says that Crowne Plaza is a hotel that IHG wouldn't even want to convert into a parking lot.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by dauatx the staff was the best thing about it
this property is in dire need of a renovation, it's pretty disappointing how wildly different the crowne plaza brand/properties are. businesstravelers want consistency and reliability in the accommodations provided in a hotel chain/brand, and i was really disappointed with this crowne plaza. found hairs in the bed which makes me doubt the sheets had been cleaned. building itself is a bit run-down, rooms are dated and dingy-feeling.

Second stay here and both times the friendly and attentive staff made any imperfections forgettable. Especially enjoy Paul the bartender. He is a professional bartender , friendly and makes everyone feel welcome.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry90 Dark and. Dirty
Overall the rooms are dark and dirty. Curtains were stained and dirty. When asked to have them replaced were replaced with curtains that were less stained and dirty, but stiill stained. Planned to stay for 3 months and had to leave after 3 days, and move to another hotel. Hotel serves buffet breakfast that is always cold.
