Visiting silicon valley for three days for work
Commuted to San Jose to avoid the uglyness of San Jose- Palo Alto really is charming and this hotel is perfectly located to enjoy Palo Alto.
The hotel- pretty bland from the outside
Located by the side of the road- though no noise from my room overlooking a parking lot.
Self Parking at 10bucks a day is totally fair- 15 bucks for valet
Room was spacious and the linens of good quality- nothing earth shattering- but nice.
Good sized TV
Toileteries were nice and all the little extras were there- q-tips etc.
What I didnt like:
Internet- 15 bucks a day but you can only connect one device at a time! C'mon guys.
Some rooms have this overly elaborate dual shower head in the room which looks impressive- but frankly the pressure wasnt great with one head...tried with two....underwhelming.
Gym was nice- a bit cramped - especially the dumb bell area....really weak....but the cardio machines were adequate.
Pay TV prices were too high for my taste
Pool looked nice but was too small to merit jumping in....towels nicely rolled up on the loungers....just not enough time for me to make the effort.
What I liked best?
The staff. I don't say this often, but I had consistently pleasant interactions with every single member. Restaurant recommendations, recommendations for a run around Stanford campus, etc etc....nice people!
Special note to the service where they can lend guests sneakers, shorts, socks and a t-shirt for a workout- LOVE IT.
Overall a pleasant stay. I would stay again and recommend.
