Stayed a weekend to attend an event at Stanford University. The hotel is well maintained, clean and updated. Spacious rooms, very quiet and comfortable. Staff is very nice and helpful. The hotel layout is a bit confusing at first, but it allows rooms to have views of various scenic courtyards. The street access for cars is a bit difficult. Southbound access requires a U-turn on El Camino. However, once familiar, it is not an issue. Guest parking is relatively small. Large cars will find it challenging. Overall, a very nice hotel that seems to fit the Westin upscale image.
My room 1059 is located facing the parking lot, car's lights all night reflected on the window,
guests running up and down the stairs, slamming of doors, a very heavy thump on the upper floor, dogs barking (if I had known of you allowing dogs, I would have never stayed.
On the other hand the food was great, I will go back for the Onion soup and Panna Cota
This is a great hotel with an excellent staff, nice rooms, and within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. They provide water, coffee, snacks, and internet access for free so you don't have to be annoyed with little things during your stay. I'd strongly recommend it if you are going to Menlo Park or Palo Alto.
We celebrated our wedding anniversary with dinner and a stay at the Garden Court. Staff were very helpful. The rooms are beautiful and spacious. We had a balcony that overlooked an inner courtyard. The hotel offers room service breakfast but instead we had breakfast at the Il Fornaio adjacent to the hotel. A lovely experience all around and well worth the price.
Let me just say this hotel was very nice on the inside, not so much on the outside. The staff was very friendly and helped my friends and I get to downtown Palo Alto with little trouble. The staff was more than happy to answer any and all questions regarding the area which was nice because we all were not too familiar with Palo Alto. The room included: free wi-fi, free breakfast (toast and mini cinnamon rolls), a refrigerator, microwave, starbucks coffee in the morning, ironing board and iron. We were set! I would definitely recommend this hotel for the weekend or even just for the night, it's well worth it! Oh and P.S. the beds were very comfortable!
