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

The staff make this one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. Welcoming, attentive, keen to help and please, they made us feel like we were their most important guests. The children loved the outdoor pool and the bikes, which we used almost every day. The location was excellent too: close enough to walk to downtown Palo Alto for... More

My favorite hotel in Palo Alto by far! They have so many free luxuries at the hotel from chocolate chip cookies in the evening to wine tasting after business hours. The staff is very courteous and attentive and they even had live music.

I've been staying at the Stanford Park for many years as it feels like a "home away from home". While many things change, the good feeling and vibes at the hotel don't as they continue to reinvent themselves but never forget or depart from the core of what the hotel stands for--an excellent facility with superior staffing and service.

The pictures do not do this hotel justice. The rooms are nicely renovated with quality amenties. The restaurant & bar are fantastic as well. The hotel is centrally located near shops and restaurants. The courtyard is great. The hotel also offers freshly baked chocolate chip cookies in the evening. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.
