Stayed here for one evening while on business in Silicon Valley. It is a short drive to Stanford and close to main street Palo Alto.
If you are looking for a high end hotel this is a very nice one. The staff are very good, welcoming, focused, listen quite well, and willing to walk you to whatever you need on the property. The rooms are not cheap but they are spacious and well appointed. The beds are very comfortable and the bathroom is modern and supplies good amenities. The fitness center is open 24/7 and has a good offering of aerobic and anaerobic machines --- not the most-up-to date --- but good.
There are some things to be aware of however. Don't use the mini bar -- it is very expensive and don't make local calls from your room --- abusively expensive for today's world. A half bottle of white wine, two glasses was $54 and a 40 minute phone call to San Jose was $47. Come on!!
If you are looking to hold a private business dinner for 20, not sure this is the place but the lounge and Madera restaurant are nice.
Net net; if you are looking for a high end hotel, can afford the room rate, and deciding between the Four Seasons and Rosewood, this is a better choice. But beware of the items described above.
