Over the last 4 years, I have stayed at numerous hotels in the Palo Alto area, and none come close to my great experience at the Westin. It has the best location to Stanford & downtown. It is always immaculate (the room, lobby, fitness & pool areas). The room rates are always reasonable for the value you are receiving. And...

This lovely hotel could appear to be too much like a museum where everything is beautiful but you don't want to touch it. The staff made all the difference in providing warmth and personality. Our check-in was prompt and efficient, though they won our 4 year old's heart. She was given a Westin kids pack that had a wonderful sun...

The valet met our vehicle immediately and unloaded our baggage onto a cart (hanging the jackets, of course!). We were checked in and shown to our room in a very prompt and courteous manner. We were given information about the area and engaged in pleasant conversation on the way to our room. Our bags were brought into our room and...

The Palo Alto Westin is located conveniently on the corner of El Camino & University, a short walk to the shops on University and a short drive (or brisk walk) to the Stanford campus. Caroline & Jonathan were very helpful in making sure my request for early check-in was accommodated. The staff in general was courteous. The 5-story building is...

Stayed here on business several times. All good experiences. Service is always attentive, rooms always clean and comfortable. Those are the most important things for me. Lobby bar lacks something. Nothing wrong, just no real draw to it. I've never eaten at the restaurant but it looks good. Gym can get busy in the early am (5 treadmills, a few...

This is a great property. I have stayed here numerous times and always been happy. I was here two separate times in December for numerous nights each time. The staff was great and always eager to help. Sunday brunch was awesome. I find it refreshing when you walk past the front desk and the staff say hello and ask if...

I have stayed here no less than 20 times for work. The location and staff cannot be beat. The price of the rooms varies so greatly that it goes from great deal to rip-off depending on the cost. But there really is no better place to stay in Palo Alto. It's a short walk to downtown PA for dinner. The...
