The Westin is a nice hotel located right across the street from Stanford campus. It has all the immenties one would expect from a hotel of its calibre including a pool which is actually quite small. The rooms are at best mid-sized and at worst small. The Westin was clean and our stay pleasant but it was far from spectacular.... More

We checked in at around 8pm and front desk staff was all smile and greet you as if you were the first guest... More

In general I found the hotel to be suitable. Good location near Stanford University and close walking distance to a lot in Palo Alto (University Ave strip, Town and Country, hospitals, university, train station). Room was fine, nothing special but was clean and updated enough. The pool area is small, but also fine. At first, at check-in I thought the... More

this hotle is great and very well located. Just in front of a nice park and next to Stanford university, if you live to jog, it is simply perfect. Beds are very confortable and the services are great. Staff is well trainned an pay attention to customers... I would go back there again anytime. Price was reasonble for Palo Alto.

We've stayed at the Westin in Palo Alto many times. The kids love the pool (and ordering ice-cream poolside). I like the quiet morning tea by the fire in the lobby. Very comfortable rooms, good breakfast, fitness center. Rooms are very comfortable. Friendly front desk service -- easy check-in and check-out. Great location for Stanford visits and not far from...

Wonderful hotel. Modern, beautiful decor. Great staff. Sure to stay there again. Close to Stanford - I walked there, took me some 20 minutes to the Quad. Route is with palm trips. Go and see the nearby little art village - great restaurant there too.

Hotel location is convenient to Stanford University, the train & University Street - all are walking distance. The hotel lobby is inviting with a small bar on the first floor and full service restaurant on the 2nd floor. Rooms are styled as you would expect at a Westin - for certain the Heavenly Bed, ample workspace & neutral decor. The... More

I am currently staying here and it is fabulous. This is such a beautiful hotel, clean, elegant, quiet. The beds are so comfortable, huge room and super clean. The pool is a little small, but seems to be the right size for the hotel. I had dinner last night in the restaurant on the second floor and the service was... More

Sorry this review was written late. I finally put the Trip Advisor App on my phone. I was at the hotel in March and will be back again next week! I love this hotel when I am in the Palo Alto area for work. The staff members are awesome. The restaurant has great food. And the location is awesome! Easy... More
