Visited during Stanford graduation weekend. Staff was very courteous and professional even though they were busy. Restaurant was magnificent. Great choices. Rooms were spacious and extremely clean. Enjoyed the pool area and the valet service was great around the clock. It's our choice everytime we visit Palo Alto.

This Westin property is really not a Westin property. It was up until recently the Saint Clare hotel. An older, smaller hotel. The rooms are TINY! So beware if you are going as family of 4! The overall hotel is fairly simple and small. They do have Il Fornio a decent Italian restaurant downstairs which is good and convenient. The... More

No value add for the price we paid. Hospitality had no warmth. The best part of the hotel was their restaurant that served excellent tasty choices for breakfast and dinner. The room had no extra amenities but the bed was very comfortable. I find it expensive place to stay in.

Kind of funny that a hotel located in Silicon valley didn´t manage to provide a working wifi within the room. Very tasty breakfast, clean spacious room with balcony to garden. Large bathroom, terrific shower!

We stayed here for a night during the week between Christmas and New Years and so we got a good rate. There is a lot of construction in the hotel and so their bar and restaurant are off-limits right now, though they have a deal with the next-door Sheraton. This is a short walk to downtown Palo Alto which was... More

Are you looking for a hotel that still charges for Internet even though it's already 2015? Welcome home. This property offers all the latest amenities and has a sharp Tuscan architectural design. The rooms are clean and the lighting is decadent. Really enjoyed the design of the bathrooms. Really up to date! However, there are not electric plugs by the... More

Been to a few Westin Hotels in the US lately and found them interesting and exiting. This hotel was much more average and traditional with a small check in area and bar. Lot's of walking around to find the room.

Very light and clean with nice sized rooms, the only drawback of this particular hotel is the cost soars because of demand. The location is perfect as you are in walking distance of downtown Palo Alto.

OK hotel but not for 400 USD. Charge you for Internet and for some reason, I have been woken up by fire alarms in middle of night 3 times in 10 night stay. Other than that, it is what you might expect from a Westin. Good location with respect to Palo Alto and Stanford. I would not stay here if... More
