I booked Dinah's Garden Hotel through 'name your own price' on Priceline, where they said it was a 3.5 star property. Based on my experience, I would rate it a full 4 stars. Very friendly and customer service oriented front desk staff made check in a breeze. My room was large and very nicely appointed. I really liked that there was a small fridge, as well as a little sink and utensils in the kitchen area. And each morning they provide two Ghirardelli chocolates and fresh fruit at no charge. The grounds are beautiful - My room had a small private patio right on a koi pond, with lush landscaping. The pool is great - large, and easy to get in and out of. Ther are two restaurants on the property, as well as room service. The property is split up into several buildings, but there is ample parking around each one, so you never have far to go. And even though the hotel is situated right on busy El Camino Really, you really don't hear any street noise (at least I didn't in the building I was in at the back fo the property. Check out was also easy. I stay in Palo Alto about once a year, usually for a long weekend, and I've stayed at various other hotels. But now Dinah's is going to be my hotel of choice in Palo Alto. Sure, the Westin is closer to campus, but it's also (generally) much more expensive, and frankly, I preferred Dinah's.
