About

#3 of 27 hotels in Palo Alto
Nobu Hotel Palo Alto – a 73-room boutique hotel in the heart of Silicon Valley has recently unveiled a completely brand new hotel including an exclusive Nobu Ryokan guest experience on the top two floors. You will arrive by way of a grand spiral staircase with floating stone treads and a carved teak handrail, set above the globally acclaimed Nobu Restaurant. Then you will be welcomed into a light-filled lounge with rich wood, Crema Marfil stone, Venetian plaster ceilings, and luxurious furnishings like George Nakashima’s legendary chairs and John Wigmore’s ethereal light sculptures. Designed by LA-based Montalba Architects, the Hotel will also feature a new façade of chiseled stone, textured with waves of cream and gold. The peaceful and buoyant design will express subtle echoes and contrasts with the hotel’s commanding views of the city, Stanford University, the Santa Cruz Mountains, and the surrounding Bay Area foothills. Enjoy world-renowned Nobu hospitality, Palo Alto-style.

This is the best spot to stay in Palo Alto. Great central location is mixed with a modern chic space. Rooms are very comfortable and well designed. Nice amenities and balconies add to the ambiance. Feels very Japanese minimalist but also comfortable . You also have access to Nobu restaurant which is superb. This is truly the best spot to stay in the area.

Hotel's Favorite
We happened upon Nobu by chance after the hotel we booked in San Jose looked like a war-zone. What a sheer delight. The rooms are not big (but the wall-mounted TV is huge). It has every modern convenience including a Nespresso coffee machine and a TOTO bidet-toilet. (A real pleasure if you’ve never seen or used one.). The bedding and bed itself are pure pleasure. The room has a balcony (pretty unusable given the fires) and has a sheer curtain and a blackout curtain that are operated remotely (push a button). The bathroom is wonderful. Good size and great light. Finally the location is right downtown and the bottom floor is a Nobu restaurant. Fabulous food but very pricey. Probably more than 20 restaurants (all serving outside) are within walking distance.

We picked Nobu randomly and were thrilled with our experience. The room was great, the TV huge, the bidet a plus. We ate dinner in our room and the meal was excellent, preceded by an unexpected free drink from a roving bar cart. The staff was very efficient. Wish there w as a Nobu hotel in more. Sports in California. The location is also very central.

I recently visited the Peninsula to take care of some business and needed a place to stay. I discovered that now there’s a hotel in downtown Palo Alto. Nobu is a great hotel with a fabulous location. I only need to visit Palo alto two or three times a year and this hotel is in downtown Palo Alto . it’s walking distance to all the great restaurants. And because Of the location I didn’t have to drive around for an hour or more looking for parking. The hotel is one of the best- great rooms, views, amenities, and hotel staff. the trick is to figure out which side of the hotel is going to give the best views and I think I found it, I got the view to the east on an upper level floor.

*That which gives one’s life meaning Stayed two restorative nights in a street facing room with a balcony. It was immediately clear that Nobu Hotel offers a singular experience. Subtlety, grace, beauty, and seamless efficiency are key experiences here. With its scale somewhat grand along a main avenue of downtown Palo Alto, the lines of its exterior design give quiet clues of its elegance that vibes with the feel of both the neighborly and upscale shops around it. The contactless check in was smooth and reception staff were kind and helpful. Between nights, we enjoyed a hike along the Stanford satellite dishes that was recommended among a printed list of others provided. The room itself was serene and graciously planned for relaxing, with linen kimonos and cotton slippers behind sliding closet doors. Japanese refreshments and service ware with nice teas and coffees were impeccably presented in a pretty, shelved alcove with a refrigerated drawer among the others below for belongings. The lighting was customizable, with settings for different times of day/moods, affecting both fixtures and window treatments. Neutral tones and natural, high quality linens added to easy luxuriating. Best hotel bed I’ve ever slept on—competes with my organic latex one at home! Overall wonderful experience, with the bonus of teaching myself how to tie an obi! To go further into the heights of the sublime, visit the lounge and restaurant! Superb!
