Room door issue
Had issues with door of room 113.Didnt notice the first time walking out of my room to get a meal. Came back used card to enter room., but when I came back from get a soda from the hotel mini store, notice the door was ajar. I tried several time to just close the door with out slamming it with hand and the door wouldn't close ever time. So most likely my door wasnt closed when o left out to go out of the hotel to get a meal. The door should be heavy enough to close shut on it's own.

Amazing staff and perfect location!
It’s the cutest little hotel. If your looking for a chic but quiet hotel this is the spot! Amazing service!!! And the staff was more than accommodating for our needs!!

Hotel Keen, Palo Alto
The hotel was conveniently located near the Stanford campus and an excellent selection of restaurants and shops. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The room was quite small with no view, but it had everything that I needed to be happy.

Great room—clean and small. Exactly what I needed for a quick business trip stay. Desk attendant was a little slow—but overall, good stay!

Great boutique hotel and great staff
My 15 month daughter and I did our first father daughter trip. The staff was amazing and friendly. They helped us out 5 different ways and made a couple accommodations. Parking can be challenging but all of palo alto is right outside the hotel. You can walk to Stanford too.
