Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 March 2012

Best luxury hotel in the area. Quieter and more low key than Rosewood Sandhill. We never stay anywhere else. Also, very convenient to Stanford.

I stayed here for a week for work. As expected from Four Seasons the hotel is great and I had a good stay. If you want luxury, stay here. I'm a business traveler, however, so even though I enjoyed my stay, I probably won't stay here the next time. There are a lot of other good hotels in the area that are much cheaper that provide as good a service.

Location
Its right off Highway 101 in East Palo Alto. So its somewhat convenient to get to and to drive to work from. However, it makes for a lousy view from your room. Its about 30-minutes from SFO and a short drive from down-town Palo Alto where you can find a lot of good restaurants. University Avenue in down-town PA is a nice place to walk around, hang out, or just have a cup of coffee.

Amenities
The rooms are, as expected, very clean with executive style furnishings. Internet wasn't included and though they have a huge parking garage and plenty of parking around it, you are still charged for every night that you park your car by the hotel even if you park it yourself. Valet parking is, of course, more expensive.

Service
Staff at the lobby were very nice though the staff at the door just ignores people.

Wonderful place...great service and excellent location. Well laid out room with space for everything...and very nice bathroom. lovely sleep worthy bed!

Service stands out...just ask for it..and it appears in no time.

The restaurant is average, especially so since it's in the vicinity of a hundred brilliant eating places on University avenue.

Only paid 269 instead of normal 419 per night. Got lucky I guess. Food was excellent both room service and Quattro.
Highly recommend it while visiting Stanford.

The Four Seasons Palo Alto is an extremely clean, high quality hotel. The doormen are very friendly and polite without being overbearing, and the receptionists work quickly and are responsive. The rooms are spacious, the bed supremely comfortable, and the L'Occitane products in the bathroom are well stocked and have a refreshing lemon scent. The bathrooms all have a double sink, so that's convenient if you're sharing the room.

When checking in I personally prefer to face the entrance because you can see palm trees and people sitting outside of Quatro, the bar by the driveway. The other view is of the highway, which I don't think is particularly nice. The hotel is very accommodating - when I wanted to trade rooms for a different view, they promptly moved me, no hassle whatsoever.

The service is first rate. I forgot toothpaste and a razor, and someone was up 5 minutes after my call to bring shaving and dental kits. Room service is also top notch and reasonably priced - the banana split is enormous, with fresh caramelized bananas and more than enough ice cream.

The Four Seasons Palo Alto is also very good with late check out. I've had no problem getting a 1:30pm checkout the last couple times I've stayed there, despite the hotel being entirely or almost completely sold out.

To get to the Stanford campus, the shopping mall, or the cafe/shop area, you do need to get in a car. It's a short and pretty drive, but a car is needed nonetheless.

Room Tip: Face the front entrance of the hotel.
