Superb 9.0 From 120 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
The hotel felt really welcoming and peaceful/quiet. It was great location, walking distance to a lot of restaurants, and only 24 minutes from the airport. They also offered many unexpected amenities such as beautiful chocolates waiting for you in the room, slippers set out upon arrival and hot tea and coffee available. I would absolutely stay here again!

Very Good 8.0
It was a lovely hotel but very over-priced. For that price, it should have included free parking and breakfast.

Gorgeous property conveniently located in downtown Palo Alto. I can’t stress enough how lovely the hotel is. The bed was super comfortable and the room as a whole was luxurious.
Dona, us2 night family trip
Good 6.0
This property should have better service given the prices in s three night stay we received no refreshing of the room unless we requested it . It is it a top experience to return to a room at 4 pm and have to see a rumpled bed and breakfast dishes

n oasis
The check in was fast and easy, the room was lovely and very quiet. It was easy sleeping past 8am. The hotel is an oasis right in the middle of this little town, with much to do within walking distance.
Charles, us1 night business trip

Outstanding accommodation, and five-star staff
The room was comfortable and pleasant. But the greatest asset of this hotel is the staff. Every staff member I encountered went above and beyond normal service I encounter at other hotels. It started with the doorman, who crossed the street to help with my bags; he had a smile like Charon’s in John Wick, and always remembered me when I came or left the hotel. The front desk manager went out of his way to find me a room for early checkin, and knew my name the next day when I checked out. The next day he emailed me to inquire if I had left some clothing behind that housekeeping found (it wasn’t mine); however NO other hotel where I left something behind has ever initiated contact to return the item. When I returned from dinner I decided to make a cup of tea from the lobby service; a housekeeper noticed that it wasn’t hot, volunteered to heat it for me and then brought it to my room. The small gestures of the competent staff make guests feel like the staff really cares about their comfort.
