I like this hotel. It is very convenient to downtown Palo Alto, you can walk there for restaurants and shopping. The rooms are big and the beds comfortable. The hotel is right near the cal-train line so ask for a room not facing that, though the trains are not that frequent and don't seem to run much during the night. Highly recommend this place.

I really enjoy staying at this hotel. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The rooms are large with quaint finishes and all kinds of special touches. The beds are among the most comfortable that I have slept in. The restaurant and bar are homely with good food, wine and drinks served in a friendly manner

The location is good, opposite the Stanford Mall, but a little walk to downtown Palo Alto, though there is a complimentary town car service to locations within a 3 miles radius.
I enjoy this hotel.

Great hotel, we had been here 10 years ago and it is even better. Kind service, very good beds in spacious rooms and a very good restaurant serving meals until late at night. Certainly the best place to stay near Stanford and Palo Alto

Room Tip: Rooms towards the patio can be more quiet but I stayed on the side of the street and heard no noise

I stayed at this hotel for a high school reunion. The school got us a pretty decent rate so that helped as I understand this place isn't cheap. Everyone on staff was either helpful, friendly or both. I had a problem with the mini-bar not having the refrigerator working and they were at my door with one that was fully stocked and cold within 10 or 15 minutes. The room I had was great, with a very comfortable king bed. I used both the swimming pool and hot tub and they were both very well maintained and clean. My only objection, and a minor one at that, would be that there is no clock in the pool area. One would be nice. I can't think of any reason not to give this place a 5/5.
One bonus of this place is is proximity to Stanford shopping center. I took a walk over when I had some time and this place sure has changed. It was fun walking all through the place as well as the perimeter.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are somewhat dark but have a lot more privacy. Rooms 168-172 are very close to th...

Dear Winedude49,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us during your recent reunion and for your thoughtful and kind feedback. Your suggestion of a clock outside by the pool and hot tub is a great one. Be assured that there will be one there on your next visit back!

Warmest regards,

Patrick Lane
General Manager

I have stayed several times in the Stanford Park Hotel. Every time I experienced excellent service, very nice food and pleasant, spacious rooms. I particularly like the public spaces at the Stanford Park which are comfortable, encouraging guests to linger. The interior courtyard is a real standout. However, the decor in the hotel has not been updated in some time, so the rooms look rather tired. I recommend the Stanford Park without hesitation, but I would suggest that management consider updating the decor.

Checked in at the last moment. Excellent staff and accommodations. They helped plan business trip to downtown San Francisco via train to avoid morning rush traffic. Breakfast was great. The hotel gave a general feeling of peacefulness. I plan to stay here or at other of their hotels in the future.
