Annoyed guest
The hotel provides earplugs in every room for a reason! The first night we stayed on the first floor with other guest above us. We could hear every step they took back and forth. I was extremely annoyed! The friendly office staff moved us the second floor hoping it would be better...but not! The guest next to us bathroom was on the other side of the wall next to our bed and we could hear everything! If you don't like waking up to the sound of other people checking out with rolling suitcases down the walkway...don't stay hear. The reason we stayed here was the hotels location. I would choose another hotel next time.

Great modern biz hotel
Place is pretty cool, great for local business trips. The comforter was very thin and there wasn't an extra in the room so i was too cold to sleep soundly. I got into my room very late so wasn't up for calling the front desk. Would stay again though, love the minimalist vibe.

Close to Stanford Uniiversity.
Very new and modern room with a large screen TV, Keurig coffee maker, rainhead shower and USB outlets. Open air lobby with great outdoor seating area with a fireplace and waterfall.

The Nest Palo Alto, Palo Alto
The staff was great. Friendly, quick & efficient check in & check out. Room was nice but the bed was too firm, and lacked a mini fridge. So for a 2 night stay, we couldn’t store perishable, snacks, meals or cold drinks. The local area was too loud at night to get a restful sleep. The walls between rooms were pretty sound proof but did not block out noise from the parking lot, which the rooms face. So we heard every car door close, people speaking on the lot and the traffic from the nearby main strip.

not special
Nothing special about the place. Pillows were uncomfortable, wish there was a mini fridge, wish the gym was a little more secluded, lighting in our room was really dim, needs to another shades along with the existing black out shades, space was very small.
