This hotel is a hidden gem. It is tucked next to a creek. The rooms are large (especially for a family of 5) and lots of thoughtful amenities such as robes, bottled water and a safe. The staff was very friendly and helpful. An attached restaurant is an added bonus. We were given free drink cards for happy hour. Also,...

I stayed here for 5 nights because of a conference being held at this hotel. On the whole, it was great. Clean rooms, ambiance, convenience. The one thing I would note is that the hotel "up-graded" my reservation automatically to have something like a "value getaway" -- paying extra each night for a wine reception, and a driver to take...

We had a good stay here. The room was very clean, beds very comfortable and the staff very nice and helpful. We also had good room service and tasty food from their restaurant. This place is very quiet and when you enter the premises it feels secluded from the main road it's on. The gardens and fountain adds to the...

I overnighted here and found it to be a really comfortable stay. For starters, the desk clerk happily let me check in early, which was a big bonus. I found that same kind of service and cheerfulness from all of the staff. The room overlooked a woodsy courtyard. There was no traffic noise. Everything was spotlessly clean and in good...

The hotel is set in beautiful, tranquil gardens with a calming creek running through the site and is perfectly located within minutes of the all the amenities of Palo Alto that is full of charming restaurants, shops and cafes.

My wife,son and I stayed here for a weekend a while back. It was very clean and comfortable . We went swimming it was clean also. This first night there I sat on the balcony and watched the traffic. Pretty peaceful. My son took the cutest picture on the bridge over a small pond. I enjoyed this hotel and would...

This location is very nice, feels almost tropical, it was raining for 2 of the 3 days we were there but was still nice, we had a room on the 3rd floor and our biggest problem was the antiquated elevator, it was VERY slow and kinda scary, we could not get the doors to close and the elevator to operate...

The room was above average being that it is located in Palo Alto, California. The technology was up to date as far as request for room service, etc. However, the magnetic card strip kept demagnetizing throughout. Changed at least four times in a three day stay. Food was overpriced and not consistent to finding more food options like vegan and/or...

The hotel is set back from busy El Camino Real and so is very quiet with beautiful gardens. Relaxing and lovely. The room I was in was remodeled to very nice but showed a bit of age. Everything clean and thoughtful (iPad for ordering food).
