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. Restaurant in hotel or other dining and shopping withing walking distance....

I have had the good fortune to stay at the Stanford Park Hotel on three occasions this year and can't speak highly enough of my experiences.

This is one of the most charming and relaxing hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff was wonderful, the rooms are a nice size and the grounds are beautiful. As if that wasn't enough there were little extras that really made our visit-wine in the evening,chocolate chip cookies at night, snacks in the room.... My husband and I agreed...

I've stayed at the Stanford Park >10 times over the past 3 years on business with my most recent stay this May. Bottom line: it's a solid, consistently high quality experience. However, business travelers beware: this hotel has some wholly unreliable wifi. You're better off using your own hotspot or tethering to your phone. I had some international work that...

Stayed here in conjunction with visit to Stanford. Nice spacious, quiet room, and generally excellent service. Only issue was a lack of follow-through by front desk person regarding requests for dining and house car reservations. We would certainly return when we revisit the campus, and suggest you make your reservations early, since pricing model really varies enormously as space becomes...

I love a glass of wine at 5, and I love hot tea and home made cookies at bedtime. My only complaint if you can call it that: keep the wine going till 11 and the wonderful lotion is difficult to get out of the pretty bottles. But great lotion!
