Took grandson for a Stanford event and stayed here for two nights. Very helpful, rooms and beds are great. Any time we asked for anything, they were on it and wonderfully cheerful about it. We ended up eating at their restaurant several times simply because it was easier. It was ok, although expensive. Would stay here again.

I stayed at the Westin Palo Alto last month and it surpassed my expectations in every way. I especially want to commend Front Desk Supervisor Shavnel Singh for his excellence in ensuring that all of our needs were met. When we had a minor problem with the room he not only solved our problem but demonstrated sincere empathy and concern...

If all you care about is the room and this location is convenient for your trip, go for it. Clean room, soft bed and nice sheets, fine soap and whatnot. Valet is fairly priced and fairly quick. Included breakfast (platinum perk) is limited to some form of warm eggs and muffins/fruit, but that's tolerable. But the late night crew is...

Stayed at The Westin in Palo Alto to attend a Stanford class reunion. Very friendly staff and nice room sizes. Unfortunately the rainy weather did not allow us to use the hotel´s pool. Great place to stay with the family.

$17/night Valet, quick response, very friendly. Quick check-in at friendly front desk. Kind of a long walk to the hotel room. Quick Wi-fi that is a bit finnicky (doesn't totally slow down like many during the evening but latency gets bad or something, some longish delays). Also you have to check your phone constantly to see if it is on...

Spacious room, tastefully decorated and thoughtfully appointed. High ceiling and fresh sheets. It is a quiet enclave convenient to downtown Palo Alto. I will stay here whenever I can. Comfortable desk & huge bathroom, but only one sink.

This place has it all! Great location, staff, decor, restaurant, and accommodations that make you feel at home - so comfy cozy! Even the ice machine entrance (shown) is lovely! I'd go back any time. Won't forget it.
