Dinah's Garden Hotel is ideally situated for business at Stanford, Palo Alto and/or Mountain View. The buildings are thoughtfully laid out with a limited number of rooms in each. The onsite swimming pool and Poolside Café are pleasant and comfortable. Additional water features include fountains in pools and rivers of moving water that are home to ducks and fish. The sound of water is soothing. An onsite dog walking area is lovely with wonderful landscapes and bench sitting areas. Parking is convenient to each room. The history of the property dating back to the 1920s in interesting and a testament to the long-term pride in this property. I have two more trips to the area planned and will be selecting Dinah's Garden Hotel for both visits to the Bay Area.

Great stay. Everything good! Awesome room upgrade, convenient car charging, great food. All staff were attentive and upbeat. This is now my go to place when in that part of the Bay Area. Hope to be able to take advantage of the other amenities during my next stay.

Hotel and grounds are beautiful and well kept. We always stay here when we are in the Bay area. Being able to eat while sitting at the pool are makes a nice dining option. The help is especially polite and helpful when needed.

We have stayed here often. Business took us here every 3 weeks since December and we have stayed in the Garden Suite. Second floor, no one above us, no one to the bedroom side either so nice, a bit loud at times when people are leaving, tho that is recent as more people are staying here. Landscape is really pretty and restful, the building and lobby looks well-maintained, as does the interior of our suite. The only complaint I have is with the "suite" designation. It is large, it has a door closes off the bedroom so that one person can sleep while the other reads in the living area, but there is no microwave, no real fridge, the wet bar fridge is full of drinks that you can buy, but you have to bring your own cooler if you want any food from home. The bed is really nice and firm, not hard. Parking is plenty. Staff pleasant, offer free newspapers, large lobby, good Wifi. Would and have stayed here every time we have been in the area. Everything in room was clean. Two robes, one pair of slippers available for use. Large bathroom. They offer discounts as well, so take advantage of any that are appropriate.

This was our "home" during my visit to Stanford Hospital for outpatient surgery. It was extremely quiet, nice sized room, peaceful grounds and a great rate for Stanford patients. Also, fabulous salads at the restaurant, friendly folks and minutes from Stanford.
