Let me start by saying, we are huge fans of the Starwood chain. We have a lot of family in the Bay Area and when we come for a visit we will stay at the Westin in Palo Alto (if there are no rooms available with our family). If you are attending any Stanford sporting events, choose this hotel, it... More

This is a really nice convenient hotel if you are visiting Stanford or the Palo Alto area. You are within walking distance to Town & Country Village which has a number of really nice restaurants. The only gotcha is that they charge for parking other than that the hotel is very nice.

Pros: Location is convenient to university Ave. Room size is nice. The pool looked nice (but I didn't go in). Prices were reasonable for the area I guess. Cons: my biggest issue with this place is housekeeping. There was a stain on our duvet cover. It was late at night so I just kicked the duvet off the bed and... More

The Westin is spotless and the beds are so comfortable you get a very good night sleep. Our room had a large bathroom with bath tub and separate shower. I specified that I did not want to be near the elevators and the front room clerk honored my request. Very good internet connection.

The hotel was superbly located on El Camino. It was quiet, efficiently run, and priced appropriately. The staff was smiling, friendly, and helpful. The underground parking was a bit tight coming up to the street. So, be careful.

Beautiful well-appointed room with luxury size spa like bathroom. Our bed was so comfortable and the room so spacious. We booked through booking.com for a great price and only wish we stayed here longer than a night to truly enjoy all the amenities.

Our friends are staying in the Westin for 12 days; on their third day, when we tried to telephone them, the hotel operator answered the phone while giggling. They did not say any greeting (no "How may I help you?"). When we asked for the call to go through to the room, the operator -- still intermittently giggling -- said... More

This was my first trip to the Bay Area and The Westin Palo Alto played a big role in making it a success. I was there for a wedding (7/28 - 8/3) and most of the guests chose to stay at The Westin. It is also walking distance from Downtown Palo Alto. I stayed in a double room with my... More
