First let me say thank you to the Westin Palo Alto Hotel and staff, you were the best. I had knee surgery and stayed here because I had to go to my post op appointment next door. The staff was helpful, courteous, professional and caring. They went above and beyond in every way, my wife had to take care of... More

We've stayed at the Westin several times. The location is perfect if you want to be close to Stanford as we did. The hotel is always clean, service is wonderful and the food is very good. The breakfast buffet includes cooked to order eggs, omelettes, Belgian waffles and more. They even offer gluten free toast.

Love the location near Stanford Stadium and campus. The staff was helpful and friendly. Was given a room upgrade at check in. It was a corner room, with view of pool area. Extremely quiet and the bed was very comfortable. Complimentary Dasani water in room and nightly chocolate always a nice touch. Underground parking at $14 is very reasonable. Staying... More

We stayed here for one night to visit friend in Stanford Univ. I heard the average rate is very high but since we came right after labor day weekend, we got a great deal. The general feeling of this Westin is, well, odd, from the way front desk staff checked us in to the hotel floor plan to the ambience... More

This property is located near the main street, with walking access to shops and restaurants. The hotel is well maintained. The staff is friendly. The hotel has easy access to freeways and is a good central location to stay.

I have stayed at the Westin Palo Alto many times over the years. It is a peaceful, quiet hotel very near to both downtown Palo Alto and to Stanford University. The rooms are well appointed, very very clean, and the staff is friendly and well trained. There is very convenient parking right under the hotel, and the overall level of... More

Facilities are bare compared to neighbor Sheraton, skimpy pool with jacuzzi and small gym. rooms are small but clean. Hotel is very clean and rooms are in good decorb. Very comfy bed and good bathroom with marble floor shower and good quality soap. Excellent location next to campus and PA centre, 5 mins walking distance

We stayed here for a nearby wedding. As expected for a Westin, the hotel itself was very well-kept and comfortable. The staff was great, from the front desk to the valet parkers to the bellman to the housekeepers. An unexpected benefit was the great location. A 5-minute walk away is a shopping center with several restaurants. About 15 minutes away... More

I arrived at 1:00 am and needed a 5:00 wake up to take a call back on my east coast schedule. Actually out if the hotel by 8:00 am for meetings. Not much time for rest and recovery. Every aspect of stay : room/bed; staff; room service; and quiet supported that plan. Will go back next time. Fifth floor room... More
