While attending a meeting at Stanford, I stayed for a few nights at this hotel. Overall, it was exactly what I'd expect from a Sheraton--generally nice, but with nothing particularly interesting. The room was a good size, and my bed was very comfortable. Unfortunately, my area of the hotel is along side a train station that meant frequent trains rumbling by, blowing horns, and ringing bells. I would try to avoid the rear of the property if you can. In addition, it looks like the hotel decor is perhaps 15-20 years old. Starwood folks: if you read this, it is definitely time for some updating. (Though I wonder if they are deliberately trying not to outdo their more expensive sister property--the Westin--which is immediately next door. While this hotel theoretically has a good location, in practice it is a long walk to the main portion of the Stanford campus, and the train tracks make getting to downtown Palo Alto difficult as well.
So while this hotel was "fine," I'd probably try out some other area hotels next time I'm in Palo Alto.
