We were here on business & used limited facilities, so can only tell you about that. The bedrooms were very spacious and do too was the bathroom. I returned to my room after the first night and house keeping had not visited my room, so I requested they did. Breakfast was superb and there was plenty of choice from th buffet to a la carte. Service was good. The bar closes at 23.45 so don't stay here if you want a late drink.

The hotel was well located for Silicon Valley and the Stanford Mall and, of course the Uni. Certainly would return.

Park the car and leave it. The Westin is conveniently located with walking distance of Stanford University (across the street) University Ave. shops and restaurants, Stanford Mall (Macy's, Bloomingdales, Microsoft and Apple stores etc.), Town & Country shopping center (more shops and restaurants) and Cal Train. We used SPG points and enjoyed their pool, cozy bar, and great location to visit our son and his wife.

I stay here annually when I travel for work, and this place never lets me down. The front desk staff are the best and the most helpful. The valet parking attendants are the friendliest and most professional. The rooms are so very nice and spacious, clean and so relaxing. I cannot think of anything bad to say about this hotel at all!

A great place to stay for Standford Football. Our upgraded room was large and comfortable. Saturday we walked a few blocks over to the Stanford game. Sunday we had wonderful brunch, complete with chocolate fountain. We will do it again next year!

The Westin Palo Alto is a very nice hotel - rooms, amenities and location are quite good. But it's really annoying 1) to be charged for internet access and 2) then to be double charged - twice. I am still trying to get the extra charge removed from my bill a week later.

Room Tip: This hotel has a lot of very long hallways. If you want to be close to the elevator, make sure to as...

Last Saturday my family and I attended the Stanford vs. Washington State football game and decided to book a night at the Westin Palo Alto for the night. The Stanford stadium is a short walk away from the hotel and very convenient. After a great football game, we walked back to the hotel for our relaxing night's stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was outstanding! Plenty of room for our family of 5. The beds were amazingly comfy. Our balcony/patio from our 5th floor room had a great view. We ordered room service and the food arrived quickly and was delicious. We went for a swim in their very nice pool as well. All in all a great stay and I will stay there again the next time we go to a Stanford football game.

Room Tip: Go for the 5th floor if you want nice views of the South Bay.

I always love staying at the Westin in PA - so close to downtown and easy to get to the Caltrain, grab a cab, walk to the restaurants,etc. The room, lobby, hotel bar and gym are all really nice. Very clean, quiet, and overall a great place to stay.
