Powered by AI

The Stanford Park Hotel garners frequent praise for its amenities, including an inviting courtyard and spacious rooms, with service that caters to both personal and professional needs. While its prime location near local attractions is often lauded, opinions on value vary, with some questioning the service-cost ratio. The hotel's atmosphere, with live music and elegant decor, adds to its old-money charm. Rooms are generally celebrated for their comfort, though some guests mention maintenance and noise issues. Service is typically regarded as attentive, despite occasional housekeeping concerns.

Hotel's Favorite
5.0 of 5 bubbles
I loved walking into the lobby, with a fire and the smell is amazing. Staff was very helpful. The hotel is modern and stylish. They have fire pits outside, and you can even do smores, great for kids. Our room was very nice, and big. Tvs could be updated.

Love the location, right near Stanford University, Stanford mall and University Ave loaded with restaurants. A small hidden gem in my opinion, we look forward to going back.

The Stanford Park Hotel has lovely large rooms, a beautiful setting, courtyard, the rooms are so tastefully furnished and the bathrooms are truly beautiful. I was made to feel so welcomed upon my arrival and I was happy to see them reopen. I felt totally secure with all their attention to covid security and atetntion for the guests. I look forward to my next visit there over the holidays.

At this time it might be a suggestion for hotel to offer mask in room just in event a guest needed one.

Lorraine, Thank you for trusting us with your safety and giving us a vote of confidence by staying with us. It is difficult to travel, much less know what you might encounter from a cleanliness, sanitation, practices and protocol standpoint. I am glad to know that you were pleased. We look forward to your return visit over the holidays and NEVER hesitate to let me know if we can do anything that will make you more comfortable or that might make your stay more enjoyable. Thank you for your suggestion about offering a mask in the room. We struggle with knowing what the right thing and the best thing is, so we elected to have masks, gloves and sanitizer available but not place them in the room. Again, we are trying to figure it out and your thoughts are helpful in guiding future decisions about the best practices. The items are always available and ample supply at the desk so we will make sure that we highlight that fact based on your suggestion. Until we see you again, be safe. With sincere appreciation, Patrick

I needed a hotel to stay in my last night in town and I decided to treat myself to this hotel. It was wonderful. They sanitize each room with a sanitizing mist and provide a goodie bag with water and snacks. This is a luxury hotel and while the pub was closed it is understandable. The hotel desk managers were spectacular and really made the extra effort. A++ for this property! The ode to famous Stanford grads in the hallways is also a very nice touch. Rooms are excellent.

The Stanford Park Hotel was great. Alarica arranged all the traditional special touches, including rose petals and something to eat and drink, with ease. She took so much stress and planning off of my shoulders at just the right moment. She deserves special recognition! Room service was amazing too. I would normally expect room service to be, well, barely edible, especially when ordered after hours. This was literally some of the best food we've had, even for a restaurant. We highly appreciated staying here and only wish we could've stayed longer.

As soon as we entered the lobby we were greeted by two friendly faces welcoming us to the property. All details were explained followed by a complimentary glass of red wine for me and my wife.
The room was clean and well presented and received a wonderful cheese platter upon arrival followed by a bottle of wine (it was our anniversary).
We then dined in the restaurant and were treated very well and most importantly the quality and value were top notch.
The pool area was a big hit for my son and had a wonderful time.
Upon departure, we received a friendly farewell and the bill was up to date and accurate.
What more can I ask from one of our favorite getaway properties.
Mr. Lane (General Manager) runs a tight ship.

The hotel offers no breakfast nor lunch service. Our room was above the outdoor restaurant, which played loud music throughout the day despite offering no service until dinner. The room was not cleaned for an entire day although we were out most of the morning, then had the Service Request sign on the door for 3 hours in the afternoon, then asked for cleaning at the reception desk. We were told that no cleaning is offered after 7pm (at $480 per night, really?). Poor service throughout our 3 night stay, particularly given the price point.

Truly a gem! The rooms were beautiful, large, welcoming, (and most importantly in 2020) immaculately clean. The staff was warm and exceptionally helpful, especially at helping you navigate our very, very stressful new normal of traveling during COVID. All COVID policies and procedures were in place and actively being enforced, and while dining amenities were temporarily closed on-site, the staff went above and beyond to help us find food in the area (so many options!). As strange as traveling these days is, Stanford Park still made it feel like a treat. Absolutely adored my experience there and can't wait to return!!

My family stayed at the Stanford Park Hotel for a week. This was our first time here. We had no problem checking in and easily got to our room. The room was plenty large for a family of 3. Two queen size beds, well stocked bathroom, and plenty of closet space. We were able to open up the windows to enjoy the refreshing Pacific breeze. Décor of the hotel was a mix of classic, contemporary, and modern. Entire hotel was super clean. We really enjoyed winding down for the night outside at the firepit and making s'mores with our daughter (s'more kits were available at the front desk). Started off each morning with a fresh muffin and coffee at the front desk. Everyone who worked at the hotel greeted us with a smile (even though they were all wearing masks, you can tell they were smiling) and were very helpful. WiFi signal was strong everywhere I needed it. Work out room was clean and full of modern equipment (including weight machines, free weights, treadmills, peloton bike, yoga, etc.). The library was a good quiet place to sit and do some work and a computer and printer were available. The heated pool was beautiful and well maintained. I couldn't find anything I disliked about the hotel. We will be staying at the Stanford Park Hotel again for the next time we're in the area. Thank you to each and every employee at the Stanford Park Hotel for making our trip so enjoyable!

Solid as usual - good gym, good Resturant, great service (a bit short staffed but who isn’t right about now).

Rooms are old fashioned but always meticulously clean and well appointed.

I left some clothes to be dry cleaned, asked for a few extra items - everything was taken care of in their quiet professional manner.
