We spend 4 nights at the hotel. From check-in to check-out, enjoyed every minutes of it. The hotel is very very close to Stanford, which makes it very easy for us to attend events there. Within walking distance are shops and restaurants. The hotel public area is under renovation, cannot wait to come back when the project is all done. Thank you to CAT, Front Desk Service Agent for her hospitality and great services.

Good hotel with all necessary amenities. We got upgraded to a suite. The room has a chimney which is nice. The big plus is the continental breakfast which provides a good variety of good quality and healthy choices.

This wasn't a very relaxing weekend stay for us. The "Preferred Starwood Member" room we received was fine, but nothing extraordinary. It was a nice, larger size room and nicely furnished, but again, nothing special. As others have commented, we had to go next door to the Sheraton to eat, but I think that's a temporary situation while they remodel. The walls and floors are very thin and you hear every conversation next door to your room and every footstep above your room. The train noise was excessive and kept us awake until 11:30 pm on Saturday night when it finally stopped. On Sunday morning, I was awakened at 9 am by the cleaning folks across the hall yelling to each other and vacuuming. I opened the door twice to ask them to please stop, but they were too far inside the room and yelling too loudly to hear me calling to them. We wouldn't recommend. Oh, and if you self-park your car ($20 instead of valet at $25), approach the toll booth slowly when you exit, as it's a real sharp turn and easy to damage your vehicle.

I spent a week at the Sheraton right next door, you actually share the parking lot, then I moved to the Westin expecting a much better experience, it was the opposite, I feel robbed! The restaurant you have to use is the one at the Sheraton, the rooms are way smaller, the room service is a nightmare and you don’t have a bar, coffee or a place to have breakfast here. By far the worst Westin I have ever stayed, as a chain they should keep the standard or remove the name to a much much cheaper brand, long story short, don’t over pay if you need a hotel in Palo Alto, stay at the Sheraton, don’t trust the photos at the website, the photographer is a magician! The staff is very kind and try to make the best out of an awful place, but the facilities are not at a decent standard, everything at this hotel is either broken or age worn.

Response from JuanR6362, Guest Services Manager at The Westin Palo Alto
Responded Jan 3, 2020
Dear Petricioli, Thank you for your review and for your recent stay with us. We are currently updating our property, and as you noted our food and beverage options are different than what we normally offer. While we know that this presents a unique circumstance for our guests, we are glad we are able to offer in-room dining throughout the day as well as welcome our guests to our sister property, the Sheraton Palo Alto, immediately next door. We appreciate our guests' understanding as we conduct these updates and we are very excited to share our new look later this year.

I had a big room with a good sized bathroom that included both a shower and a separate tub. When was the last time you saw that in a hotel? There were enough plugs in the room, but only two at the desk. Others were on one nightstand, with a variety of charger cords on the other. Okay, but not idea. Gym isn't gigantic but had four or five treadmills, some bikes, and a bit more. Good enough. Location is fine, just a few blocks from downtown and from the CalTrain. I would stay here again.
