This was my first stay at the Stanford Park Hotel, and it was a first rate experience. The property is beautiful, and they had an amazing Christmas tree up in the lobby area for the holidays. Also, the Menlo Grill is excellent-I had a delicious dinner (perhaps the best pork chops I have ever had) and breakfast. Highly recommended if...

The Stanford Park Hotel was beautifully maintained and had excellent service. The in-house restaurant served a wonderful breakfast. In our case, it was not included, but the prices were reasonable for the area and the food and service were excellent. Plenty of parking, and a quick walk to the Stanford Park Shopping Center in Palo Alto. The open air tables...

A top-level hotel in every way. Rooms are immaculate, restaurant very good. They were kind enough to offer me a ride from the hotel car over to campus one morning, and helped arrange a cab at another time. Efficient staff who take seriously the job of attending to guests.

First and foremost, very polite staff at this hotel. Rooms are large, comfortable and clean with fireplaces (unusual!). Terrific bartender in the friendly uncrowded bar made for a relaxing evening. Thanks to front desk and bell staff for helping with logistics. All told, just what you'd want in a business hotel and seems like it would be good for couples...

The Stanford Park is an inviting, well located and comfortable property run by a very friendly staff. The public areas are well kept and welcoming both indoors and out. The staff was helpful to a person. The rooms are amply sized, comfortable and clean, though maybe a bit of updating wouldn't hurt. I have stayed in a number of hotels...

I stayed here during the recent reunion at Stanford and the stay was excellent. The location was fantastically close to the Farm and all area freeways. The room and indeed throughout the interior was classically appointed. Room was spacious, comfortable, and stocked with nice amenities. The Menlo Grill was casual but food was excellent.
