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.

This hotel and staff have been a fixture in my life for nearly twenty years, thanks to an annual meeting in the neighborhood. Every year, the visit is enjoyable in a new way. The experience is predictable but not static. Amenities continue to evolve. The food is excellent, and service is on par with the best local restaurants. The visit... More

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. Since that time we never consider staying anywhere else. We appreciate the courteous friendly employees and the efficiency and thoughtfulness of the hotel which is manifested... More

Lovely hotel in a great location. I always stay here when in the Bay Area. It is comfortable and downtown Palo Alto, Palo Alto Caltrain and Stanford are just a short walk from the hotel. Rooms are beautiful. If you are a runner there are terrific places to run including the Stanford campus.

Stayed at the SPH this weekend and was pleasantly surprised by how nice this property is! The front desk staff was very welcoming, my room was large and comfortable. Bathroom toiletries were beautiful. The hot chocolate chip cookies at 9PM were such a treat - along with the salt water taffy and caramels at the coffee station. All in all,... More
