What a confusing hotel! On the one hand it looks cool with its shingled exterior. It offers taffy, apples, fruity water and cookies at night. There's books to borrow. A trendy restaurant in the lobby and reasonably spacious rooms. Then night falls and the place is just annoyingly loud with the wrist types of random noises. First there are endless... More

I've spent 5 nights here in early August 2016. The rooms are absolutely fantastic and so is the service. The staff at the reception desk is really friendly. They provide you with rides to and from the hotel. Preferably let them know in advance such that you don't have to wait. You can also get a bike at no extra... More

What a lovely, peaceful, conveniently located hotel. Me and my partner stayed here for one night on the weekend to combine pool with some shopping. It was great!

I travel to Palo Alto fairly regularly, and have been disappointed by the hotel options until I found the Stanford Park Hotel. Staying in or near Palo Alto is an expensive proposition -- and oftentimes hotels don't over a level of service, amenity, or convenience anywhere close to their price point. The Stanford Park is a great exception to the... More
