The Stanford Park was our home away from home for a week over Christmas while visiting family and friends. Beautifully decorated, very comfortable and spacious room (ours had a fireplace and balcony), and genuinely pleasant staff. All the features of a five-star hotel at a fairly reasonable price. The pillows are fabulous!
The staff is very friendly and helpful; prompt delivery of luggage and other packages from the front desk. The amenities are nice (wine tasting on weekday evenings, cookies on weekends), but you do pay $18/night as an ammenity fee. Might be more worth it in the summer when the outdoor patio and pool/jacuzzi are usable.
Also didn't find the CalTrain noise to be much, despite the track being nearby. The train goes by maybe once an hour and with windows/drapes closed, not too noticable. Couldn't hear it at all when the heater fan was running.
Would likely stay again the next time we visit the area.More
