We originally chose this property simply because of its proximity to Stanford Medical Center. This hotel has now become one of our favorite hotels. The staff is remarkable, they all embrace the true meaning of hospitality. This unique hotel is immaculate and with the many lovely courtyards one could easily imagine being in Italy. Some of the rooms are small but extremely well appointed, comfortable and cozy. The bathrooms are very large, very beautiful. The underground parking is convenient, as is its location near Stanford Shopping Center, Stanford University and as mentioned, Stanford Medical Center.

This hotel is truly exceptional in style, service, and personnel. You are really taken care of as an individual, and the staff understands the needs of a business traveler. Rooms are spacious and modern. Location could not be better. Overall, exceptional.

This would be your normal soulless, cramped four star hotel were it not for a unique design that must have been inspired by the Riddler: the hallways are literally destined as a maze, making it quite a challenge to find the elevators. Oh, the hotel also hosts noisy late night parties in the function rooms, providing free music to the bedrooms whether you like it or not.
The beds are nice but the room wet aid in was relatively small with a window that looked out at a window of another room. Surprising Palo Alto is not exactly a cramped city.

I stay here on business regularly and always get a great welcome. The rooms are spacious and it's a nice location right across the street from the mall and a short walk to the parade of independent shops and the lovely bakery. The breakfast buffet at hotel s great with a chef to cook eggs etc. great fresh juice and good service. Outdoor pool is lovely if weather warm enough.
