I recently visited Stanford University on business and the college put me up at the Stanford Terrace Inn. The lush grounds were very inviting, with a pool in one area and a gazebo and multiple seating areas in another courtyard.
The room was huge, and I double-checked with the front desk to see if they were all that size. They are, but it seems to waste a lot of space. There was a desk and a loveseat and chair, plus a king bed and armoire. There were two televisions (one inside the armoire; one wall-mounted) and enough floor space for a pair of couples to dance without running into one another. An adjacent dressing area with a vanity was also huge, with a large separate bathroom. There were patches on some of the walls where it appeared repairs had been made but not painted over.
It seems like redecorating to make better use of the space would increase the appeal of the rooms. For example, there is enough room to include a small table and chairs.
However, the hotel was clean; the staff was extremely friendly and went out of their way to accommodate my requests. If visiting Stanford again, I would stay here.
