This is the hotel that my company puts me up in when I'm in the area on business. As such I really just sleep there and have never used the pool or bar.
The location is great. It's on El Camino at the end of University Avenue across the road from Stanford University. It's a short drive onto highway 101. University Avenue has plenty of restaurants and coffee shops all within walking distance. The area has an old town feel to it and a trip to the local cinema may well convince you that its the 1930's.
If you are a light sleeper it is worth requesting a room with a view of the courtyard. If you don't ask you will probably be given a room at the back of the hotel which has the commuter train line running by which can be very nosy early in the morning.
The only other issue I have had here was with a credit card. I came back one evening to find that I could not get into the room. When I got to reception I was told that my credit card needed extra verification so they locked the door so I would come down to see them. Now could they not have left a note explaining that in my room?
I'd happily stay there again as the location in Palo Alto is good.
