Fantastic stay beyond words

Impressive clean welcoming hotel! Easy access from car to room, from room to lobby, pool, and restaurants. Comfortable beds and whole experience sleeping there two nights!! We enjoyed the spotless pool and spa. Once again cleanliness was amazing after staying in absolutely disgusting overpriced hotels in the Bay Area and SF.

Great weekend get away

It was a nice hotel with really nice staff. The room was very clean and elegant. The one complaint I have is the bed was very hard and the pillows were too soft. Woke up with a neck and back ache the next day. Other than that it was a good deal.

Great Find in Foster City

The Crowne Plaza in Foster City is a real gem. The rooms are spotless and the staff friendly and extremely helpful. Although the hotel is located close to Hwy. 92, the rooms are really soundproof - I couldn't even hear a thing from the room next door. There's several nice restaurants in the restaurant and other restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. I like to stay there when visiting family in the area but it is also very close to the San Francisco airport.

The whole Bay Area real close!

The place was very appealing, rooms very clean, staff efficient and the place overall very comfortable. The biggest plus is that the hotel is located in a nice area, with plenty of shopping places within walking distance, and freeways close by that can take you from San Francisco to the East Bay in minutes! Parking was not a problem - and it was free, while all hotels in San Francisco charge outrageous fees for parking. Great place for the money, and close to SFO!

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

There are plenty of excellent food (low cost) around the area, and a Costco store, where we bought our wine and cheeses, and saved the happy hour charges at bars or restaurants!
