This hotel is not a super-luxurious place, but if you choose carefully, you can get a great room and have a nice stay. Yes, the feel is a little 1950s, but the pool is clean and quiet with good lounge chairs and towels, the courtyard pond and waterfalls sound nice and are surrounded by lots of trees and plants, and the food is decent. The place is clean and, when I visited last week, was nicely decorated for Easter brunch.
Make sure to request an courtyard-facing room, and if you can, pay extra for the club floor with breakfast included. The club rooms are much newer and nicer and include better bath amenities, bathrobes, Starbucks coffee, turndown service and breakfast and evening snacks in the club lounge. The breakfast is about the same as what you would get in a Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn Express, but in more exclusive surroundings, with nicer staff. I didn't get a chance to check out the evening snacks, which are offered Monday through Thursday.
Yes, the heaters are a little loud and they dry out the air in the room. If the weather is nice, though, you can leave the heater off. I never used my heater. And as for the trains passing by, you don't hear them if you are staying in an courtyard-facing room.
That said, if you get an outside-facing, non-club room, you won't be as happy.
I stayed last week for $120 per night in a huge, courtyard-facing club room on the top floor. It was a great value with the included breakfast and evening snacks. It's not a luxury hotel, but it's nice and I will be going back the next time I'm in Palo Alto.
