I have been staying in Palo Alto on business for 20 years and have stayed, and continue to stay, at all of the best hotels in the area. This hotel is routinely the best value based on price and the quality of the accomodations and service. Also, it has particularly friendly staff and management who have been with the hotel for many years and provide a friendly face for business travelers away from home.
The hotel routinely upgrades the accommodations, including recently. The lobby, restaurant, ballroom, outdoor patio, and guest rooms are nice and updated. The guest rooms are spacious, with excellent bedding and linens, LCD televisions, and seating areas. I personally prefer the tower, but travelers with small children and plans to use the pool might consider the courtyard rooms which have a pool view and easier access.
If you have a chance, book the Beatles Suite which commemorates the Beatles visit to the hotel during a tour many years ago. The Beatles Suite is on the 8th (top) floor of the tower and as I recall it is decorated with memorabilia such as the security plan for the hotel that night with the expectation that thousands of fans would swarm the hotel. Quite unique by comparison with the typical business hotel
The location on El Camino Real is very good for visits to Sand Hill Road, Stanford, HP HQ, the Palo Alto Square offices and downtown Palo Alto's restaurants and shops. The hotel has good access to interstate 280 and 101 for rides down to San Jose or up to San Francisco. Nearby restaurants that I like include Hobees (breakfast) and Fuki Sushi (dinner).
