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.

Hotel Keen, Palo Alto
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!
Laura, us1 night business trip
Hotel Keen, Palo Alto
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.

Very Good8.0
Short on expecatations
Clean and modern, just very, very small rooms. No closets, no seating, small work surface/desk. Hard to relax unless you are laying in bed. No premium cable channels except ESPN's. Poor lighting. The bed and pillows were great. Bath nice as well. No gym/fitness center. Not at all what I expected for the price.
