we had a vip suite in a separate building this time as we needed quiet and last time was so noisy with upstairs neighbours - it was huge and had cooking facilities as well and underground parking but at $350 a night it should be nice

We had a great night here, it's a lovely hotel with so much greenery that you will forgot you're in the middle of Palo Alto. We stayed in the garden suite to get use of the private balcony, which was lovely for coffee. We didn't eat at the hotel so couldn't comment on the food, but we had a lovely... More

My husband and I stayed here with our dog and cat for several days while our home was being shown in a weekend Open House. We had a ground floor garden room at the back of the property with its own (outdoor) entry. It was just perfect for what we wanted -- very spacious, comfortable, clean, quiet, and super convenient...

Loved the gardens and ponds. Our suite was perfect with Asian mid century influence. Will definitely stay here again when in the area. Living area with kitchenette and steam shower was a bonus. Well thought out space.

We found this jewel of a hotel in April of 2014. I could not wait to find a reason to go back and savor the ambiance of this wonderful place. Lagoons with waterfalls and ducks. Huge Koi fish. Real nice walking paths along the lagoons designed with an asian flare of bridges and statues. Lovely, clean rooms, comfortable beds. I... More

Dinah's is amazing! My wife and I stayed 4 nights and loved every minute of it. Our experience of Dinah's made every other stay at a chain hotel feel cheap and anemic. Dinah's is completely one of a kind. Bravo!! First, the staff is outstanding. Every time we had a need, they responded promptly and thoroughly. We arrived well before... More

I stayed here for nine nights in March/April 2014, but for some reason didn't get around to writing a review. Since I just booked another eight night stay for September 2014, I thought it was high time I sung their praises! For my last stay, I arrived before check-in time, but the incredibly professional front desk staff were warm and... More

My wife discovered this gem on a trip to visit our daughter at Stanford University, which is about 3 miles away. The property is set back from the road and is very quiet. It is surrounded by beautiful landscaping and lagoons filled with fish and ducks. With our screen door open we hear the sounds of fountains and waterfalls. It... More

Friendly staff, comfortable rooms, and a beautiful view! Checkout Dinah's Poolside Grill as well. The food was excellent. My only complaint, albeit a silly one, was the fountain in the pond directly outside the room was pretty loud at night when I attempted to sleep with the balcony door open (it was a beautiful night). Regardless, Dinah's is a great... More
