This hotel is a gorgeous and relaxing place to spend a couple of nights -- and the food is incredible!!!! We even asked the chef for a recipe and he was kind enough to share it with us - when his printer wouldn't print, he emailed it to us!!!! Our room was clean, comfortable, and quiet - the front desk staff was courteous and helpful - and the outside areas are outstanding -- rocking chairs everywhere invite one to just hand out and chill!

The Stanford Park Hotel is literally wedged between a busy roadway (El Camino Real) and the Caltrans tracks. The rumble of frequent trains is audible in the courtyard rooms. The hotel is clean but the lobby bore a musty smell. My room was comfortable but showing some age. The bed was quite comfortable. It is conveniently located to the University and Menlo Park. This is a bit expensive for the location and aged appearance.

I love this place. I have stayed 3 times and it is so delightful each time. The grounds are gorgeous. If you can get a room overlooking the middle courtyard, please do! It is perfect for the East Coasters that get up early and want to open the window to serenity.

Room Tip: The homemade granola is awesome! Ask for just some berries to go with it to make it a complete break...

Great 4 star hotel. Really nice location. Minutes from downtown Palo Alto & Stanford University. We had a 2 double queen bedroom. And they upgraded us to a double bed suite at no extra charge. The pool was amazing. Service was great. Would come with my family again. Loved it!

This is a beautiful hotel-more like a mini resort type with beautiful palm trees, a smiling doorman, outdoor dining, a great pool and super clean rooms. We were there for five great days enjoying time with our family. A great shopping mall is within walking distance. I highly recommend this hotel and the price can be very affordable ,especially on the weekend.

My wife and I needed to stay near Stanford Hospital as our son was having a serious operation requiring a week long stay. We chose this hotel because of its great reviews. It has not disappointed. The room and grounds are wonderful. The staff are delightful. Even the restaurant has been been great. The room is spacious and comfortable. Two sinks, one in the shower and one out which is perfect for a couple. The bed is quite comfortable. Good free wifi throughout the hotel. Excellent fitness center. Heated pool and spa. Outdoor dining area. Even entertainment- steel drum band from St Lucia when we dined. We were married there. Bartenders were honest about any requests for advise and attentive. Free bike rentals, car service, and many more services. Our only very minor annoyances were a bathroom fan that was ineffective and a rain head shower which I like but my wife doesn't. Only half a complaint on the latter as we just put put both types in our bathroom at home. Lol. Our son came through his ordeal well and we thank the staff here for their wonderful attitudes. Nice place to be. Ask for Aaron at the bar. Great guy.

We came for a college visit and chose this hotel based on the reviews. it is an adorable hotel very close to Stanford. The room was clean, comfortable and attractively furnished. The outside patio is wonderful and the food is very good.

if you are a shopper, then you are in luck! The hotel is within walking distance to a wonderful high-end shopping mall!
