The Parmani is well located, comfortable, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They are always willing to answer any questions I might have. On my next trip, I will definitely plan to stay here again.

We asked for a 5 star hotel and were told this hotel rated as a 4. Given the costs of rooms in the area, we booked with the agent for 2 nights. When we arrived the place was not clean, smelled and we refused the stay. For some reason the hotel would not cancel the two nights of reservation fees.... More

Dear ecparr, I apologize that your travel agent misinformed you regarding the star rating of our hotel. As you know, the hotel does not have any connection to your travel agency. A minimum amount of research online regarding our hotel would make it plainly clear that a 5-star hotel we are not. Unfortunately, we do not control the booking fee... More

Old fashion motel feel. Big room, clean, quiet but NOTHING fancy. Friendly staff. You get what you pay for when compared to other hotels in the area. Wifi does not work, and pillows on bed could use an upgrade. Good location, will stay there again when we come back to the area.

My wife and I stayed 3 nights while attending an event at Stanford University. The location is great with access to local and shuttle buses immediately at the hotel. Staff are very helpful. Rooms are updated and comfortable. This is an older style of motel, very well updated. Parmani is an outstanding quality/value!

The week prior, we stayed at the Comfort Inn and that place was dreadful with a very tiny room. The Hotel Parmani had a much larger room at a better price. Plus, it's right next door to the Fish Market that is a very good restaurant. We had a 7 AM check in at Stanford Hospital so we left before... More

We booked for 11 nights the room with the two separate rooms with 2 twin beds. That was the main reason we have chosen this hotel (the good critics and Palo Alto area as well).

We stayed here to attend a memorial service at Stanford. It is very reasonably priced for California, comfortable beds, has a continental breakfast and very kind staff. The rooms are well appointed and clean. In walking distance of many amenities.

This property is walking distance to my place of employment. When I come to town, this is where I prefer to stay. Property is clean and convenient for me. Staff is friendly and helpful. I'm not a "fussy" person and my budget may be limited at times....so this works for me. Everyone is different.
