So enjoyed our time at this oasis of calm !! What a beautiful and absolutely spotlessly clean hotel. Everything was perfect from the best beds ever to the great relaxing ambience from the garden setting. The breakfast restaurant is serviced by professional waiters and was a very pleasant experience. It was like a mini Italian vacation and the location gives...

From booking the reservation last minute on the phone to arriving and having special treats brought up the staff could not have done a better job. They were so sweet and really on top of everything we needed. They were the most professional and responsive group of workers I have experienced in a long while. Can't say enough about how...

The front desk staff is extremely friendly and efficient both for check in and out. Room was very well appointed especially the bathroom with jacuzzi bath and separate rain shower. The...

We were amazed at the wonderful service provided us at the Garden Court Hotel by Angelo and the other staff at the front desk. Also, the caring nature of them exhibited as they knew my sister staying with me had fallen on a walk in the neighborhood. They asked about her several times and made sure I knew they had...

Visiting Palo Alto this is a great hotel to retreat to after a long day of technology visits. It is comfortable and clean. Has great beds. Internet works well. Has all the facilities you need. Walking distance to Stanford and the center of the city. Missing a training room. Otherwise perfect to stay when in Palo Alto.

The amenities of this hotel are exceptional and the staff are incredibly accommodating and extremely friendly, especially Angelo. He went above and beyond to fulfill all of our requests. Of note, the complimentary chocolate truffles made on site along with the port makes for a fantastic end of the day treat! I am hoping to come back to Palo Alto...
