No major complaints about this hotel other than it's overpriced. Nice looking, fantastic location, friendly staff, quiet and comfortable. Only a couple of oddities. First, the in-house restaurant seems to offer only Italian food. I am originally from Italy, and I'm definitely NOT going to have chicken parm when ordering room service in Palo Alto. Second, instead of flipping through a binder like in every other hotel, in order to find hotel info you have to use a horribly slow "interactive" system that you access through the TV remote. And that includes room service: you might actually starve before managing to navigate through the system to get to the menu. Come on people, sometimes low tech is better (especially when the "high tech" solution is from the 1990's). But those are details. The only real disappointment was with the gym -- tiny and (at least on one morning) smelling like dirty socks. Upon checking out I was told that the hotel offers free passes to a health club nearby, but of course that info -- like everything else -- was only available through the interactive TV system.
