Highly recommend this hotel for business travel and possibly vacationing in the Palo Alto area. Very close to the Stanford Mall. Friendly staff and luxurious accommodations. The complimentary wine tasting and cookies were an added bonus. I was very impressed with the outdoor facilities for people to relax and unwind. The Menlo Grill restaurant served a good menu and was... More

This was a fun getaway to a wonderful hotel. The service was excellent, staff genuinely friendly and property located within walking distance to downtown Palo Alto. The room was beautiful with a fireplace and nice sitting area. We enjoyed the charming character inside and outside sitting by the fire pit in the evening. We will definitely be back!!

i didn't stay in the hotel, but had a business meeting over a latte and bagels. comfortable place with overstuffed chairs and the staff leave you alone, without hovering over you. lots of small groups of people having animated discussions. it's very close to stanford and the VC capital of sand hill road.

Excellent hotel, and wonderful staff. What made this a 5 star experience instead of 4 was the hard work of the front desk associate Brandie, who took amazing care of my husband and myself, and moved mountains to get us a room during a sold out week. She was so helpful, worked hard and took out the stress from travel... More
