Staff was extremely friendly, especially Tony at the front desk. I have stayed here several times. Tony not only recognized me when I checked in, but noting that I had been there before, he upgraded me to a junior suite. It was a really kind and unexpected thing.

stayed at Aria for three weeks. Had a great stay, staff is really nice. Rooms are comfortable, housecleaning is great too! Breakfast spread is decent in the morning. Absolutely loved the freshly baked choco chip cookies at the front desk every evening :)

Has the worst management when it comes to dealing with customers and issues professionally. They had barged in my room as I was packing bags little by little into the car and they ran across my service dog that was in there and claim my dog had bit them and dogs were not allowed. First off, Service animals are allowed... More

Anyhow, she said "no one is around! Just use your underwear!" I about died! So funny!!! Then she offered me a fresh cookie. I... More

I had the misfortune of having to stay at Hotel Aria which was booked through Hotels.com. When I got into my room it was dated, dirty, and smelled. Even though the hotel is in beautiful Palo Alto I honestly felt unsafe there. The locks on the doors are very old and anyone could break into the room with ease. I... More

Spent one night here as a result of a last minute trip that made it difficult to find any available rooms in Palo Alto. The motel was basic and offered what you needed, not much more. Facilities were clean but dated. Pricing was high like all other places in the area: $350 for a last minute stay. Didn't try breakfast... More

Stayed here for a week in a king room. It was very spacious. The kitchen area had several cupboards though I wasn’t sure why as there were no plates, cutlery or anything else of that nature. There was a large fridge and a microwave. 2 large settees which I realised were sofa beds, a dining table and four chairs plus... More
