Upon check - in we were told that our room was upgraded to a "king bed" that was cool. The room had sitting area, a flat screen tv, and a few snacks.The bed was... More

I have stayed here 15 times in the past 5 years. The staff is always v nice, helpful and accommodating. My room is always v nice and comfortable. Recent upgrades are an improvement on what was previously acceptable. It is a joy to return to this, my home away from home, after visiting my daughter as an undergraduate and now... More

I stayed here when some alternate plans fell through; and am very glad I did. The decor is lovely, outdoor patios great, the room was very spacious and clean, and the staff very accommodating. I ate in the restaurant for breakfast, and it was also very good. There is ample free parking. I would highly recommend this, and I am... More

Just a great hotel; cozy, classy, great food in the bar and restaurant, close to lots of Stanford campus venues and shopping center, and helpful staff. Nicely appointed rooms of a generous size with really comfy beds. Particularly fun on a weekend when Stanford is playing a home football game. We go to watch the tennis team too; if you... More

Please come by and let us know what you think. The Stanford... More

We stayed two nights last week, and left wishing it could have been a much longer visit. The property and staff exceeded all expectations. All amenities are 'first cabin' and all staff have the perfect balance of friendliness, courtesy and professionalism, not often experienced these days. For visiting family in Menlo, it was the perfect location. The various thoughtful touches,... More

This is a great place to stay. I particularly find the bar area one of my favourite places. You see people having meetings, getting drinks, working with their laptops - just the overall set-up is both aesthetically pleasing and well designed to for people to work in private or meet with other as desired. I also noticed that they recently... More
