A good if rather conservative hotel, with a nice restaurant. Spacious lobby and guestrooms, with traditional decor. It seems popular with a certain crowd, and books up quickly in conjunction with various Stanford events. No bargain rates here. We informed the hotel of our AM arrival well in advance of the trip, but on the day were told we could... More

Dear May 347 Traveller, Thank you for taking time to share your thoughts and impressions with other travelers. I am truly sorry you were not able to check -in early on the day of arrival. Our check out time is 12:00 noon and if guests are late in departing, it makes it challenging to prepare and refresh by 3:00pm. Unfortunately... More

This hotel is a 15-minute walk from Palo Alto restaurants. I have been there on business, but on my last stay invited some members of my West Coast family. We all had a good time, and will probably make this an annual affair.

This place is pretty and comfortable. It looks and feels like a hideaway resort as you drive into the long tree-lined driveway. The staff is friendly, gracious and accommodating. They are obviously very proud of their establishment and the service they offer here. Our room was bright and spacious. The carpets and furnishings are slightly worn, but you do not... More

Quiet luxury. Have stayed many times throughout the years. Returning recently found everything just as perfectly appointed plus a few extra's. Early check-in by text with immediate responses and accommodating to my requests was one less thing to worry about. Needed airport transportation and their referral was on-time-worry free. Restaurant in hotel or other dining and shopping withing walking distance.... More

I have had the good fortune to stay at the Stanford Park Hotel on three occasions this year and can't speak highly enough of my experiences.

This is one of the most charming and relaxing hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff was wonderful, the rooms are a nice size and the grounds are beautiful. As if that wasn't enough there were little extras that really made our visit-wine in the evening,chocolate chip cookies at night, snacks in the room.... My husband and I agreed... More

I've stayed at the Stanford Park >10 times over the past 3 years on business with my most recent stay this May. Bottom line: it's a solid, consistently high quality experience. However, business travelers beware: this hotel has some wholly unreliable wifi. You're better off using your own hotspot or tethering to your phone. I had some international work that... More

This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel and I'm still impressed. The place and location is outstanding, easy to get to and from, and within walking distance of Palo Alto, Stanford Mall and the Caltrain station. But honestly, there's no need to leave, the food is wonderful, the service exquisite, and the staff always so helpful. I'm... More

Stayed here in conjunction with visit to Stanford. Nice spacious, quiet room, and generally excellent service. Only issue was a lack of follow-through by front desk person regarding requests for dining and house car reservations. We would certainly return when we revisit the campus, and suggest you make your reservations early, since pricing model really varies enormously as space becomes... More
