The hotel grew on me as I spent more time, especially the staff- who were wonderful people! The chocolates and little notes on the bed added a personal touch. The room was spacious with moveable furniture! Breakfast was average. Overall a good experience, with only one caveat that there is not much choice in their in-room dining options(there is no...

Trendy-cool but not impressed with itself. Professional, welcoming employees, willing to go out of their way for you. Rooms are well-decorated, great linens, clean and well-stocked. Best thing: morning coffee is at the elevator door (how great is that if you're not looking perfect yet!)

Thank you for your great review and for making me laugh. We knew we put the coffee at the elevator landing for guest convenience, but never thought about how the guest might not look perfect! Seriously, we love to impress without acting like we are too cool for school (glad you got it). Thank you for sharing your enjoyable experience.... More

This was a very comfortable place to stay. The hotel staff was friendly. They offer some unique things like board games in the room. The location is very convenient to restaurants and our vendor. I would stay here again.

Hotel Avante is first-class and their employees know how to treat customers with quality customer service. We've stayed there twice in the past 9 months and each visit was met with very efficient check-in, a clean and comfortable room and fine breakfast amenities. The hotel is about 15 minutes from Stanford University and only about 5 minutes from downtown Mountain... More

We have been back to Hotel Avante 3 times in the last year- Emanuel is a fantastic employee and made things incredibly comfortable and warming for us. Such a nice person- We also love the blue paint in the rooms along with the carpet. It is all set up very nicely! -Megan and Cate-

The staff at this hotel was great. They were very professional but were friendly too. It was evident that they wanted my stay to be enjoyable. I liked the fact that the décor was not cookie cutter or sterile like you find in many places these days. The mid century modern theme was fun. The breakfast in the morning was... More

This place is way below standard for the price of the room. I reserved a "deluxe king" for $225 a night before taxes - there was a terrible musty odor in the room when I arrived.

Everyone has those "goto" hotels that you always feel comfortable with making the choice. This trip I decided to step outside the box. So I choose this hotel. This price was great compared to anything in the area. Free breakfast. Workout room. Internet. The room was clean with lots of lighting. Maid service was excellent. Loved the hand written notes...
