This Residence Inn, in the heart of Silicon Valley is a great value. Staff is well-trained and provides a high level of customer service
Easy access to major freeways
Everything you need is nearby
No matter what my request the staff works to find a way to meet my needs.

Room Tip: Main building most convenient

A good value if you utilize the the extras perks provided by the hotel. The extras include: above average free breakfast buffet, evening free happy hour and dinner. I shared a large 2 bedroom efficiency style suite that included a fireplace. Free parking in underground garage keeps car dry and comfortable temp regardless of outside conditions. Staff was polite and friendly. Easy choice for future silicon valley trips.

This hotel was comparable to other Residence Inn properties we have stayed in. Clean, comfortable room. Quiet (we stayed on the top floor as suggested by other reviewers). The bed was too hard for my taste and would be improved with a good mattress pad instead of a very thin one. Nice facilities. Breakfast was very good. Housekeeping staff was great. Wifi was slow as others have noted; fine for answering email, but do not count on streaming a movie. Quality choice for business travel.

Going to Box HQ for a week or a night -- plan ahead and reserve a room here. Very nice hotel, but location is all about this deal. Literally 100 feet from the hotel's backdoor to the Box reception desk. If you don't have a card you will need to walk around.

Very slightly dated furnishings (this must have been one of the early updates), but everything is clean and well maintained. Friendly and helpful staff. Small workout room, but all machines seem to be in good working order.

Residence Inn offers rather standard amenities for the typical business travellers like us and for this branch at Palo Alto, somehow it feels more welcoming than the others being located in a quiet corner off the busy El Camino Real street.

The location is superb for it is only a few minutes walk/ drive away from many food options and there is a Wal-mart and Target nearby too.

The 2-bedroom suites we booked was clean and the living area and kitchen area was great for quick business meetings and meals too.

The only downside was that the WIFI did not work well during our stay in April'12.

The nearby Vietnamese restaurant serving pho is a must-try if you like noodles.
