Sheraton Palo Alto Hotel
Ranked #15 of 27 Hotels in Palo Alto
Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

"When are we getting up tomorrow honey? 8.30 - why so late? Are you taking a shower now ... Bla bla bla". This was the conversation going on in the room next to mine at 23.55 in the evening and you could hear every world loud and clear. The first star goes because this is an old hotel in need of an upgrade. The second goes because the aircondition is an old noisy model and the last one goes because you can't get a good sleep if there are people in the room next to you or if your room is facing the train track. Plus point for friendly staff and good breakfast.

This hotel was chosen for us. We found it to meet all of our needs. It has free parking. There is a fun shopping centre and Trader Joe's within walking distance. The bed was very comfortable. Our room had a refrigerator. We turned on the heat because the temperature was cool. There are two windows--one is two storeys high. I appreciate the natural lighting a lot. The room is spacious and nicely furnished.

I can't understand why there are so few "decent" hotels in Silicon Valley. The advantage of the Sheraton is actually has a bar and restaurant (of sorts) but it seems to be slightly schizophrenic - a business hotel that is trying to be a "resort" i.e. built around a swimming pool.
The hotel is very very dull, décor bland, rooms bland, everything is adequate but uninspiring. Surprised that there are no safes in the rooms. Lighting in bathrooms was terrible and not much better in the rooms. Upside is there is a coffee machine, but no mini-bar. I've stayed here a couple of times, and not really by choice - but there are so few alternatives. The Westin next door has a nicer bar and bar menu and it's literally just a walk across the car park.

The room was fine and the bed super comfortable. Bathroom well equipped. Accommodations were pretty dated, especially the sofa section. Strange room layout as well, with a tv unit as a room divider in the middle of the room.
Property centrally located, check in staff friendly. Check out in the early morning not so good - staff didn't have the same professionality. The layout of the property does mean a fair walk from the room to reception or the parking lot.

Frankly not at all impressed by this hotel. Pricey stay for a motel... The rooms are OK, but the A/C heating system makes a terrible noise. You have to pay for everything: wifi 9.95 / day, parking 14 / day (despite the fact that it's pretty difficult to get there by any other means...).

I have stayed at this hotel probably a dozen times, all while my company has selected and paid for it (HQ is in Palo Alto). Generally speaking, the facilities are run down but the day staff is nice. The evening staff is consistently sub-par, with no shyness about wanting to get you off the phone or out of their lobby. The beds are fine but the Roomio TV setup they have is terrible. The dining is fiercely mediocre, and you generally have the feeling that this place was probably pretty nice 30 years ago.

Nice place. Had to pay $14 for parking and 10 for parking. No free breakfast either!! Seems like high end hotels charge fees while middle and lower offer free things. But no resort fees like other places in Palo Alto. Bed comfortable and room modern.
