This is my third stay at this hotel and I can say that they are a friendly and welcoming bunch. The continental breakfast buffet is a delight. Not sure you'd want to have it every morning though - It's a buffet. I always look forward to having the combo pizza from the in house bar. I'd totally recommend, if you're...

Uyi, I am all about service, and I'm glad you felt welcome. If you're into bacon, I would give our Carbonara pizza a try the next time you're at our Bistro. Thanks for your support!

The hotel itself is very nice both in the lobby, restaurant areas and the rooms themselves. The staff was friendly and professional, room service was quick and easy with a very nice selection of food. The food was also very good. Nice location to the interstate and state highway.

Yep thats right business n pleasure. Good location between san jose and san fran, next to the freeway but not all noisy. Clean rooms, clean location, decent food and ok customer service. Shame food is not available around the clock from what I remember.

Kami, I might have to steal "pleasuriness." That's awesome. Since your review, we've actually put out new menus in all our food outlets, including room service. We now proudly serve food like Fish n Chips, San Francisco style clam chowder, prosciutto and arugula flatbread, and fresh mozzarella burrata. More over, we've also changed purveyors for some products to boost food...

Stayed 3 nights while working in San Mateo. Was convenient to get to the office. Reception employees were kind and helpful. Shuttle to SFO is handy. Great sushi restaurant on site. No coffee shop or drug store in walking distance. Still a good choice.

I'm glad you enjoyed our hotel's amenities. We do have a gift shop that carries some drug store items, and our Cafe Florian opens @ 6am and has an espresso machine that can pump our coffee shop drinks like machiatto, latte, cappucino, and the like. In term of walking distance, Bridgepointe shopping center is less than a 1/2 mile from...

Here for a conference at the hotel. Conference area is not huge (which I like). Property has three restaurant options, include a sushi, which is quite good. Staff are pleasant, great check-in host. Rooms are nicely equipped, and easy to work in. Work out area is moderate in size, but isn't one where they just converted a guest room. It...

Very nice upscale hotel in Foster City, California. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty and were very professional and accommodating.

Stayed at the Crowne Plaza while visiting family for Thanksgiving. Location is right by 92 freeway and is great to travel to surrounding areas. Although we didn't do this, they had an incredible Thanksgiving Day brunch. If not for having plans, would have definitely taken advantage of this. Only issue was that I found the bed to be a little...
