This is a popular hotel given its location in Silicon Valley near Stanford. There are not many decent hotels in this area. The front desk staff is always friendly. Tyler is my favorite and does whatever he can to make me feel welcome. The quality of the experience is consistent - even the darling women who service the Happy Hour... More

Overall, this hotel was nice for a week stay while attending classes at Stanford University but the remodel definitely impacted the comfort. Positives-quiet hotel set back from the road, free underground parking, nice variety for breakfast changing some daily, decent fitness room, nice suites that make a lengthy stay more comfortable. Negatives-recently remodeled room had some issues, construction made for... More

This is my third extended stay. To tell you how much I like this hotel, my recent assignment is 30 miles south in San Jose, but even though there are two Residence Inns between here and San Jose - this is my home away from home. The breakfast varies every day! The staff are all attentive and have been here... More

We were very impressed by the Residence Inn Palo Alto/Los Altos. The location is very convenient to anything Stanford. El Camino is a busy thoroughfare, but the hotel is in the back and shielded from street noise. Dozens of restaurants within easy walking distance. They have a huge underground gated and secure parking garage (free parking). Rooms are large, a... More

I stayed here for three nights, the reason I choose it was the proximity to the place I was visting and my previous experience with the "Residence Inn". The room was perfect, and so was the service. The Morning breakfast was sufficient and i assume its a standard spread across all Residence Inn, as it was the same as the... More

We stayed here for three nights during a visit to Stanford medical center. It's primarily an all suites hotel. We prefer a suite, and for that reason chose this over the highly recommended Stanford Park Hotel (the latter was priced more than twice the cost). This hotel is either new is or maintained exceptionally well. It's set back from the... More

This is a nice hotel. Walmart,Ross and other shopping places are very close. There are good restaurants near by. Public transport bus stops are very near by. There is social time in the evening where they server snacks and beverages from Monday to Thursday. Ambience is good. It has kitchen and with all the basic utensils. One can easily prepare... More

Been staying at the Residence Inn a couple weeks for business now and I absolutely love it. The rooms are very clean compared to other hotels I have stayed in. They offer a full hot breakfast every morning and dinners Mon.-Fri. nights. The hotel gym is a little bit nicer than most I've seen. It also has a fire-pit outside... More

We have stayed here several times And would stay again. The staff is very welcoming; this last visit we had a trailer and someone came out to help us park and invited us in for dinner! Spacious rooms but most have one bed and pull out sofa bed. Excellent breakfast.

For this stay, the hotel was unfortunately out of double bed rooms, so I slept on the pull out couch they provide in the room. While the pull out bed is good enough to sleep in, I would recommend avoiding it if possible. Otherwise the hotel staff was overly helpful - They also provided finger food "dinner" the evening of...
