Stanford Park is a beautiful hotel conveniently located not far from Stanford University and University Avenue. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful, and the rooms and grounds are impeccable. The patio/terrace with gas lit fire pits is awesome!

Our son who works for a company near by was able to book our stay here. He booked it for us during our visit to his sister, brother-in-law and children. We spent a week here. The wonderful stay at SPH would be listed among the fond memories for this family gathering! We walked into a grand looking lobby with a... More

I was staying at this hotel for our Christmas holidays with my family for four days. During our stay, my sister got her money (1,000 dollars in cash) stolen in her room. She found out when she came back to her hotel room and immediately reported to the front desk. The hotel suggested not to report it to the police... More

We booked the Stanford Park Hotel to give out daughter the "American Girl" experience. We travelled from Australia, and specifically chose the Stanford Park for this reason. We didn't expect the welcoming letter to our daughter. We didn't expect the complimentary milk, cookies, water, cheese board, crisps and chocolate. We didn't expect the complimentary use of the hotel driver to... More

While colleagues stayed at the Four Seasons down the road in Palo Alto, my boss chose for us to stay here......and boy did he get it right. This hotel has a character and sophistication that is totally missing from the Four Seasons. As an Englishman, it really had a feel of an English country hotel. Very warm, simple but elegant...

What a great find in Menlo Park! We have family in both San Francisco and Santa Clara. We wanted a hotel somewhat in the middle. This was a great location. It's close to the train station, the mall and downtown Palo Alto. The rooms are spacious enough, nice and clean. I will definitely stay here again!

The Stanford Park Hotel is a beautiful property. We have had the pleasure of staying there many times over the past few years. The staff is friendly, the rooms are large and comfortable and the common areas are well maintained. The on-site restaurant is very good too, unusual for a hotel restaurant.
