We really loved this property. Palo Alto is quite nice, the Stanford Shopping Center is in walking distance… they have bikes to use… and then the property itself is just so lovely. Landscaped beautifully, nice courtyard, great staff. The room was a good size, and comfortable. They have yummy chocolate chip cookies at 9 pm. Wish they were a little... More

We have stayed on an annual basis over a period of more than a decade at the Stanford Park. The staff is outstanding and accommodating, the rooms are comfortable, the service is excellent, the hotel's location is a great asset, and recent renovations have improved an already fine property. On our most recent stay, one of the managers went out... More

Loved this hotel! Great location. Can easily walk the town, if you are interested in taking in the sights. Nice outdoor fire pit area for wine at night, or to just hang out and catch up with friends. Wine tasting included in the evening, and warm chocolate cookies at night. If you are in this neck of the woods, I... More

We have been staying at the Standard Park Hotel for over the past 17 years. There is always a warm welcome from the doormen and the staff. The rooms are large, up to date, clean and comfortable. The food is excellent and the bar comfortable. And at 9PM there are warm chocolate chip cookies. It is the closest thing to... More

It has been a while since I have stayed at The Stanford Hotel. I arrived early and was pleasantly surprised that my room was ready - unexpected but most appreciated. The room was a fireplace corner room overlooking the pool courtyard and had windows that opened up so you could catch the lovely breeze. Also, they left two bottles of... More

The restaurant in this hotel is excellent. Wonderful breakfast with outstanding service and attention. The bar/lounge area was very cozy in the evening with great appetizers. A quiet outdoor lounge area with fire pit was relaxing.

Dear 2E2mu7, I am thrilled you had opportunity to experience the great ambiance of the Menlo Grill Bistro & Bar. Chef Nate has introduced several summer dishes that really showcase all the delicious fruits and vegetables that are in-season. One of my favorites is the grilled fruit & vegetable skewer seasoned with red quinoa, Moroccan spices and minted yogurt. It... More

We had a great 3 day weekend over Memorial Day. The property is very nice and within walking distance to downtown Palo Alto and other amenities. The room was lovely as was the very friendly and attentive staff. This is a wonderful spot tucked away in Menlo Park. We have been back twice within 6 months and both times were... More

Beautiful hotel. Every room is furnished with antique furniture rather than the usual Ikea crap. The staff was super friendly, I had some good conversations with more than a few of them. I actually forgot my laptop in the safe, they agreed to hold on to it for me until I returned. Got it back just the way I left... More

Our goal when renovating was to find a balance of style and comfort, yet a reflection on the traditional, simple elegance we are known for. We look forward to your return and... More

First time here; visiting family in the area but convenient to Stanford University and business. Staff was tremendous -- attentive, knowledgable. Free bikes, warm cookies and the outdoor patio with firepits added warmth to the surroundings. Rooms clean, spacious and attractive.
