Upon entering the hotel our family was offered fresh baked cookies and very personalized service. When we walked in we noticed live music on the patio and groups of people smiling throughout the lobby. The decor resembled a magical new england bed and breakfast coupled with timeless memories of Stanford University. Our family had multiple rooms and each one had... More

We stayed at the Stanford Park for a family wedding. The hotel and its staff were so accommodating; from the front desk to the valets..everything was perfect. We stayed on the 4th floor where it was quiet and peaceful. The beds were cloud-like..so comfy. We didn't really get to enjoy the outdoor amenities (since we were doing wedding stuff) but... More

The hotel staff is courteous and responsive to any concerns. The room was very nice. Even though you faced the main road, the walls and windows were sufficiently sound proofed that we never heard the noise. We stayed for 3 nights. The hotel is an easy in and an easy out off the street. Parking is easy. It was very... More

It was a nice surprise to see the location of the hotel. It is across from the Stanford Mall and 5 mins from the campus. Rooms size and beds were perfect and the pool was amazing. Love the outdoor seating and the firepits.

This is a very nice hotel, quiet, clean, close to Stanford University. It has a very nice patio for dining. The entrance is really attracting, wood furniture. It has a business section as well. The parking is also very comfortable. The restaurant is very nice.

The room was very clean. bed comfortable, housekeeping great - room smelled good and they brought me a clothes steamer. In the room was a package of oreos, a granola bar, a bag of chips and two bottles of water - nice touch! There are lots of cool little alcoves and sitting areas, as well as two fire pits outside...

If you are headed to Silicon Valley and need a place to stay for business this is a very nice fit. The hotel has all of amenities you would expect; plus, the lounge is very nice for a business cocktail. This is solidly a four star hotel. It doesn't quite have five star service but it doesn't advertise that either.... More

We come to Palo Alto for several days each year to visit with relatives. We stayed at several other hotels in the area until we discovered the Stanford Park Hotel approx. 12 years ago.
