This was our second stay at this hotel and we loved it both times! I think some of the negative comments are due to having to stay in the garden rooms. We've always made sure to stay in the modern tower. It will make a huge difference! The room had a great view, very very comfy beds, a small kitchenette... More

The rooms are pretty rundown, the ceiling has mildew. The windows are filthy, good luck with the bathrooms, really old. It was 100$ a night and worth much less than that. The only nice part was the pool area.

Make sure you ask for a room that is in the Tower. The rooms in the back of the hotel are a bit worn out. I got a good rate of $125, so I really can't complain. Two weeks ago I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express about a block away and paid $169. This hotel is the only high... More

-Invisible staff - no one to greet us or take our luggage. No guests besides weekend partiers. Front desk scatter-brained. -Had to ask 4 times to get a cab called for us. -Young partiers partied in the hallways outside our room until 4am and no one was at the front desk to take our complaint. We phoned nearly 10 times... More

We stayed at the CP Palo Alto while traveling for business. For the price we paid per night, I did not feel that we received a good value. If you can get a room for <$100/ night- that it probably what it is worth. Try to get a room in the tower- I understand that they are much newer and... More

I stayed here for two nites - Oct. 6th and 7th. I had a wonderful time! The hotel really is a great value- paid a little over $100 for this fab Palo Alto location. The service was excellent, the hotel decor, cleanliness, amenities were all great! I'd definitely stay here again. Maybe next time I'll have to take a jump... More

After a very long day of travel we pull up at 7:00 PM on a Saturday. There was no help at the stand to take luggage or vale to park the car. If your on the second floor it seems that no matter which way you go, you are required to navigate some stairs with your luggage. This was a... More

The hotel was quite nice like most Crowne Plaza hotels, however I had to give it this review to hopefully spare other people the frustration I went through. The hotel claims that they have fiber super-fast high speed internet access, but the problem is that many people will NOT be able to get ANY internet access there. Note that I... More

I've stayed there several times and I'm not sure why, but I like it. The location has been good for my purposes, there's nothing particulary wrong and the rooms have been clean. Enough parking space.

Recently returned from a most pleasant one night stay (12/29) at the Crowne Plaza in Palo Alto. While the property is a little older and some of the fixtures have seen better days, the room was spotless and the amenities top-notch. Bed and down comforter very comfy. Free broadband connection. The room faced El Camino but was still quiet since... More
