Palo Alto, California
Reviewed 20 July 2016

Location: Located on the edge of Palo Alto downtown, makes this hotel a great location for a base to walk around this charming city. Room: Very comfortable and it feels very homey. Furnished with high end amenities. Services: Something that they need to work on. When we arrived to the hotel to check in, no one was helping us and...

The reviews on here made this sound like a world-class boutique hotel. It's nicely kept and central but truly didn't offer anything special or memorable, and the desk staff often seemed bewildered by basic requests.

We upgraded to a room with a balcony. Just a wonderful room with high quality touches, an inviting fire place, and large bathroom with beautiful touches. Ultimate luxury, wish we could have spent the entire time inside the room and on the balcony! A perfect place to re-connect and relax while being inches away from dining and shopping and the...

The room was perfect! Someone put a lot of thought into anticipating any needs. A nice large desk made it easy to work in the room. Any office supplies you could possibly need were in the desk drawer- a stapler, tape, paper clips, scissors, even white out. I am a bit of a bed and linen snob and these were...

My wife and I stayed two nights on business. Room was very nice, quiet and well maintained. Great staff. Restaurants all around. The restaurant in the hotel was good. We stayed on the third floor. They fresh fruit they provided every morning was an added treat.

We really enjoyed this hotel. The rooms are very pretty and clean. We stayed in a suite and it was very nice. The bathroom was a little small with only a pedestal sink, but it was marble and pretty. I like more space in a bathroom, especially a suite - but this is not a bad feature, just preference. The...

My daughter has had several trips to Stanford for Dr appointments. This hotel is close to the hospital and is within walking distance to restaurants and stores. The rooms are beautiful and the beds are comfortable. The pastries they put out in the lobby in the morning were yummy. All the employees are very helpful and kind.

Best location, nicely furnished with the family run feeling. If you can find a room there it is the best place to stay in Palo Alto. Staff is very efficient and the food is great, the rooms are spacious and the amenities are incredible
