Covenant location, and ample sub terrain parking. Check-in was breeze and the staff was polite and helpful. Arrived into a king bed room overlooking the nicely landscaped courtyard. The bed was comfortable and bathroom a fair size and clean. AC worked extremely well. Courtyard was great to meet-up with friends or family. The pools are small. Two bars within the... More

We chose the Courtyard to be our base for a week of wandering and jazz at the Stanford Jazz Fest & Workshop. This was a home run location and service team - only diminished by somewhat noisy ac units in the rooms. But who cares - we could get to Stanford for music in 15-20 minutes despite on-campus construction. El... More

There are a bunch of "cheap" hotels on El Camino. Of course they are not actually cheap because it's Palo Alto. But this is one of the better ones. Good service, clean room, free Internet, decent cafe on premises, free parking. I booked via Priceline. Overall, a good experience for a convenient business hotel.

First room: 259 on the interior court yard. Nice and quiet. I could even open my window (all 4 inches) and it was still peaceful. The A/C at the end of the hall way was noisy as heck, but with door closed didn't notice it much. Only problem: the carpet was wet, as if it had been cleaned but not... More

I have to say that we were a bit disappointed when we got the Courtyard with a Priceline bid. This was based on past bad experiences with Courtyards in other areas. Boy, were we surprised! The pictures online do not do this place justice. It is very nicely appointed with warm, inviting, comfortable common areas. The back deck area has... More

This a good, clean Courtyard, nice lobby and restaurant/bar area. It is 2 or 3 miles from Stanford University with plenty of restaurants in a 2 mile area. It is a good Coutryard to stay in. Overall, a good pleasant stay.

We met up with family here from Europe and had two rooms for three nights, at opposite ends on the second floor, which was fine. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed. In our case, Housekeeping was thorough and efficient. The breakfast and snacks for purchase were good, and the coffee was great. Internet access was a breeze.... More

Well run Courtyard with excellent housekeeping team keeping the rooms clean (I'm sorry others found their room/bathrooms with hair - ugh - saw nothing like this). Up to date property with nice happy hour atmosphere. Parking garage is free for guests. 10 minutes from Stanford campus, including the AMAZING Cantor art museum and new Bing Hall for live music. We... More

For its price, i wanted to give this hotel a 5 star rating. Rooms are clean and big, free wifi, bathrooms are clean, location is central to touristy areas, free snacks and juice in ground floor, lots of good restaurants close by. However, i will subtract 2 stars because like the previous review we found hair on the bedding and... More

We stayed at the hotel in June attending my brothers graduation. We had 4 rooms in the hotel and generally it was ok, my brother and his wife had paid for an upgraded room which included a hot tub. On getting out if the hot tub and grabbing towels, rolled into on of them was a huge amount of pubic... More
