First, the bad which ended when Manager Peter Houston made a supreme effort to alievate my concerns. My $865 night room was beyond dated, it was dark and very oddly configured.The makeup mirror was bolted to the wall at almost 6 foot high. The furniture was dated and, frankly, a bit tired looking. The view was the freeway and a...

I made some mail order just before Christmas but I was only arriving after the New Year. The FEDEX delivery was scheduled to arrive before Christmas but due to the holiday season, there was a lot of uncertainty. I emailed the hotel and was assured by the Front Desk that they will be expecting my delivery and will keep it...

This place is different from any other hotels I have stayed, mostly are big name franchise. Not sure if it's because it's location, which is a couple of blocks from Stanford University, or the designer unique touch. It carries certain academic atmosphere and feel warm and home. We saw most guests are at well established age. However, my two preteen...

Made a reservation for my parents who were coming into town. The front desk staff were extremely helpful, accommodating, and polite. In fact, when my folks arrived early, the staff found a room available for them even before the official check in time. Everybody made my folks' stay welcoming and pleasant. I will definitely recommend the Stanford Park Hotel to...

My wife and I visited over the Christmas holidays. The hotel was beautifully decorated and a warm welcome was given by the staff. Hot cider was nice on our chilly afternoon arrival.

I have stayed here perhaps a dozen times over the years. Good value (particularly when the academic term is not on-going, as Stanford is walking distance away); friendly; clean, etc. I have always received great upgrades and late check out, but this time was special. Upgraded to suite and 2.5 hour late check out. For a small hotel it provides...

If wanting to be close to Stanford University or downtown Palo Alto restaurants, then both are walkable from this hotel. The staff has a nice personal touch with opening doors, and warm smiles when interacting. It has a boutique hotel feel, and highly recommend.

The hotel is a good 30-minute drive from SFO International Airport and Uber would cost about $35 - $40. It is so much nicer in person than on pictures.

As someone who stays a month's worth of nights annually at the Stanford Park, I appreciate its location, the quiet rooms, the helpful staff and the easy in/out at the hotel.
