I have stayed at the Stanford Park for years. Upon arrival, they always greet me by name and are very solicitous of my needs. I have asked to change rooms because I am very sensitive to noise and they have always accommodated me without hesitation. Every member of the staff, gardeners included, are always pleasant and respectful. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The beds are extremely comfortable and the robes provided are comfortable as well. Although located next to the train tracks, the trains have never disturbed my sleep. They have a very nice gym which is rarely occupied. They have a great bar and restaurant. The fresh baked cookies they offer at 9:30 every night is a real plus. We even had one of our holiday photos taken at the Stanford Park. Besides being across the street from the Stanford Shopping Center which has many restaurants and shops, there is also a great sushi place across the street and a popular hamburger joint.

Room Tip: The indoor courtyard rooms are quieter. Rooms towards the back of the hotel are also quieter. If you desire a quiet room, just ask for one. The Stanford Park tries to accommodate your requests. They want you to feel at home. Don't feel afraid to complain.

I have no idea why anyone would want to stay at one of the big chain hotels further south on El Camino Real. I have stayed at the Stanford Park Hotel many times starting with the first year that it was open. It has been and continues to be very quiet, comfortable and convenient. It is an easy walk to restaurants in downtown Palo Alto and to Stanford Shopping Center. I often walk to the medical center and to the rest of the Stanford campus when it is not pouring rain. On my most recent visit, I was particularly impressed with the Menlo Grill, the newly re-organized dining facility.

Just spent 3 nights at the Stanford Park Hotel and it was excellent. The room, the service, the food and the staff were all outstanding. Can not wait to get back to Stanford and stay at the Stanford Park Hotel.

Overall the hotel was just great. It's gorgeous inside and out, very comfortable beds, loved the hot tub and heated pool. But there were some downers with the overall service. Morning coffee at the bar was very slow, why not just have a big (free) coffee urn in the lobby? And nothing but Starbucks? Boo. I thought this area was supposed to have great coffee, couldn't they find a nice local roaster instead? Railroad tracks run very close to one side of the hotel, so weekdays can be especially jarring. But the worst part of the stay was coming home one night to find our door propped open, presumably since the maids left in the morning. Fortunately nothing was stolen, but it was kind of freaky going back into the dark room, not knowing why the door was open! Finally, no soda or snack vending machines in the hotel, except for the $3 cans of soda in the mini-bar. But we'd still go back, the place is just really nice.

Room Tip: Stay on the "inside", away from the railroad tracks.

Two days at the Stanford Park were glorious!! Few people were there, we enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Wonderful service. Felt like we were royalty.
