I had stayed at this hotel a year ago, so thought I'd try again. Convenience to my reason for being in Palo Alto was great, but I found the experience this time less than appealing. The hotel is far overpriced for the quality. The bath is far too small, especially for 2 people in the room. Room service was fine, as was the patio dining. Perhaps when the new lobby area is completed it will warrant another try.

This hotel was trendy and modern but at the expense of comfort and practicality. The furniture was cool looking but uncomfortable to sit on. The full length mirrors were positioned such that you couldn’t actually look at your whole outfit because of furniture. The ultra modern lighting wasn’t very bright and made tasks like ironing difficult. However, the rooms were clean, the bed comfortable and the staff great. Valet parking is $45 a day. Park under city hall instead. The location is great for accessing downtown on foot.

From the moment we stepped out of our car through the smooth checkin process with Jazz into our lovely suite, Nobu Palo Alto more than exceeded our expectations. Ivy their text concierge was fantastic and booked us a lovely day of shopping and dinning for our anniversary. Truly a 5 star experience.

Stayed at Nobu for a night as part of my wife's birthday evening celebration. The entire stay was absolutely perfect! The hotel itself was very clean and welcoming and the room was beautiful, relaxing, and well equipped.
I was especially blown away by one of the hosts, Kaushnik, who contacted me several days ahead of our stay to inquire about how he could help make my wife's birthday even, more special. He upgraded us to a great suite on the top floor and set us up with a few extra nice surprises and ammenities in the room. Among the amenities was a birthday card signed by Kaushnik and a few other staff members... Which was a really nice touch.
All in all, five star hotel, five star ammenities, and 5 star staff and service! Would definitely stay at Nobu again.
