Second time staying here, its a nice hotel, clean modern (ish) and has a pretty garden/terrace area. Nothing hugely special about this place, but is very convenient for a business trip. It does have some cute little touches though, they offer tea/coffee and fresh cookies at 9pm which is a really sweet touch.

Perfect location! Beautiful hotel not too big....not too small....just right! The staff is amazing and accommodated all our requests.....and so friendly! The room was perfect, overlooking the courtyard....and the Menlo Grill was yummy (we ate all but one meal there). We will definitely stay there again when in Palo Alto

This is second time that my wife and I have stayed at this property. It is perfectly located near, but not in downtown Palo Alto. Excellent service, comfortable room. There is some noise from the nearby train but I suspect that most convenient hotels in Palo Alto suffer from the same problem.

The rooms are large, the beds are comfortable, the hotel has some decent facilities (swimming pool and gym) and the staff is friendly. So why only a average rating? The hotel is located adjacent to some train tracks and my room happened to be at that side. For whatever reason every train passing sounded their horn resulting in so much...

Greetings Jurgen R, Thank you for sharing your review, there is no doubt your fellow travelers will find it very useful. I am sorry that the proximity of the train disturbed your sleep.

Best quaint boutique type hotel in the area. Walking distance to downtown convenient for train access and near a nice shopping area. The food is fantastic and the court yard makes the ambience at dinner better. Whenever I'm in the area I choose to stay at this wonderful hotel.

I travel to the area for business a lot. This is hands down my favorite hotel. The staff is always friendly and professional--they do the little things too (e.g., dropping what they are doing and running to the door to open it for you). The property is beautiful. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. Huge bonus is the on-site...

Just held our 1st quarter Board meeting here and it was perfect. The staff was amazing, the attention to detail was on point. First board meeting I did not have to reset a dozen things before it began. Well done to everyone!

The hotel was solid in that the room was clean, hotel was conveniently located for me and a couple of snacks in the room was a nice touch. However at over $700 a night, it is extortionately priced. Bathroom was somewhat dated and this is not a luxury hotel. When I pulled in I saw rooms along busy El Camino...
