Hotel has been updated recently. The room are big, clean, functional and good wifi. I stay in the area on a regular basis for work and this hotel is my preferred choice. Tip, pick up a meal at the Safeway in the San Antonia shopping centre and cook it in your room. Beats eating out every night.

We have stayed at this hotel on several occasions and always have found the hotel to be wonderful. The recently renovated rooms are outstanding. The front desk, housekeeping and breakfast staff are just awesome. The complimentary breakfast is excellent and the breakfast room well laid out. The location is very close to access. We really enjoy our stays at this... More

I have stayed at many Residence Inn Hotels and love the convenience and space. The Los Altos location is very convenient and while on El Camino is tucked away behind Box Headquarters so fairly quite. The suite was modern, fresh and newly redecorated. The staff was very helpful and incredibly nice to the entire party for our entire week's stay.... More

A bit worn out, but good for a family. Service minimal and indifferent. Very expensive for what it is. Breakfast included and easy to get to many places. Many other options along the same street. Occasional happy hour good for a glass of wine with nondescript food.

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
