The hotel is remodeled and worked well for our needs. We spent little time enjoying it as we were out with family most of the time but enjoyed the layout of the room. The bathroom has the closet inside which for us was not a problem but could be if one needed to get something from their bag.... Comfortable bed... More

This hotel is a bit tired but a good option with comparatively cheaper price in Palo Alto. The staff was great and I enjoyed the happy hour! I bring my iPad during my trips and I wish this hotel can also provide modern service for techy travelers like me. I used Foli app on my iPad to ready digital magazines... More

The rooms were quite new and clean. The light coming in from the balcony at night was not cool, especially in this age. Request: cut the lights at 11 or so. We had to use towels, blankets and the robe to try and block the light. You could do this at the bottom of the curtain, but not at the... More

Thank you for staying with us and noting the clean room. I have discussed your comment regarding the light at night and we will work on blocking the light from entering the room. I also spoke to our Chief Engineer to have the light on the balcony shut off later in the night. More

I have to make periodic trips to the Palo Alto area, and have to say that this is the best place to stay in that the staff takes the time out to make you feel at home as much as possible. They invite you into their house as a guest and actually treat you like one. If you have an... More

Walking in the hotel i was greeted by the valet parking which were extremely friendly. When I got to the Front Desk, the gentlemen was on his phone and didn't acknowledge me.

Have been staying in the hotel several times now. Rooms and service are ok, but not what a European Traveller would expect from a Crown Plaza. Issue is that this hotel is a franchise and the owner seems to hardly invest. Prices are clearly to high for the quality of rooms and service. They now additionally introduced a parking fee... More
