First time here; visiting family in the area but convenient to Stanford University and business. Staff was tremendous -- attentive, knowledgable. Free bikes, warm cookies and the outdoor patio with firepits added warmth to the surroundings. Rooms clean, spacious and attractive.

The setting on Camino Real is no place in the park; it's fairly busy and detracts some from the hotel. The hotel itself is very attractive, the waitstaff are very friendly and cordial. The rooms are nice, but not anything you wouldn't find in a hotel half the price. They serve fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies at 9PM every night and...

A good if rather conservative hotel, with a nice restaurant. Spacious lobby and guestrooms, with traditional decor. It seems popular with a certain crowd, and books up quickly in conjunction with various Stanford events. No bargain rates here. We informed the hotel of our AM arrival well in advance of the trip, but on the day were told we could...

Dear May 347 Traveller, Thank you for taking time to share your thoughts and impressions with other travelers. I am truly sorry you were not able to check -in early on the day of arrival. Our check out time is 12:00 noon and if guests are late in departing, it makes it challenging to prepare and refresh by 3:00pm. Unfortunately...

This hotel is a 15-minute walk from Palo Alto restaurants. I have been there on business, but on my last stay invited some members of my West Coast family. We all had a good time, and will probably make this an annual affair.

This place is pretty and comfortable. It looks and feels like a hideaway resort as you drive into the long tree-lined driveway. The staff is friendly, gracious and accommodating. They are obviously very proud of their establishment and the service they offer here. Our room was bright and spacious. The carpets and furnishings are slightly worn, but you do not...

Quiet luxury. Have stayed many times throughout the years. Returning recently found everything just as perfectly appointed plus a few extra's. Early check-in by text with immediate responses and accommodating to my requests was one less thing to worry about. Needed airport transportation and their referral was on-time-worry free.
