    Stylish and clean rooms. Great service and friendly staff. Also, the location is right in the middle of Palo Alto down town area , very convenient to all shops and restaurants. My favorite hotel in the Bay Area!

    Great hotel, great location, and great staff... but the prices can be astonishing too. That said, there aren't many affordable options on the area. This has the benefit of being very close to downtown.More
