My sister booked a room block at the Stanford Park for her wedding guests, and it was one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. (They also gave us a phenomenal rate!) The staff were incredibly helpful and solicitous, down to the cleaning staff greeting me with smiles when I walked by. The room was sparkling clean and the... More

From the time we booked our communication from the hotel staff exceeded expectations! To start with, they assisted us in arranging transportation to and from the hotel. Then the manager went above and beyond in helping us to leave creative surprises in the room of the "parents of the bride". All of this on top of...an excellent location where we... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Stanford Park Hotel. I stayed here once before 5 years ago, and while my tastes may have refined during that period, the Standford Park Hotel still provided everything needed to satisfy them.

My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Stanford Park hotel.

If you are one of the many people who come to our area, the best place, by far, to stay is the Stanford Park Hotel. The location, the property, the rooms and the restaurant/bar are magnificent. It is a very comfortable and relaxing place amidst the raging hectic life outside of the hotel. I highly recommend it.

From start to finish the service we received was poor, and at times, comically so. The hotel itself is nice enough but not nice enough to justify the prices. Rooms are large and comfortable but those that overlook the courtyard are noisy and the nearby train shakes some of the rooms. Our problems began shortly after check-in when we were... More
