I looked very carefully for a Palo Alto hotel for business meetings. This happened to be a week when all hotels from SFO to San Jose were booked. But the Courtyard by Marriott on El Camino Real found us three rooms and we came in hesitant due to some of the negative reviews. They were pretty much wrong!
First, this property is nicely updated. The lobby, breakfast eatery, and bar area are reasonable and comfortable. The rooms are nicely appointed, and only could be improved if the carpeting was fully replaced. Additionally, the wifi was nicely robust and allowed us to do all the business necessary.
The outdoor courtyard is spectacular. We watched some workers putting the final touches on new brick walls around the seating areas outside of the lobby, and it will be in great shape in days. Two gas fireplaces allow for pleasant evening outdoors.
Most important... the staff. We arrived at 12:30 am -- and the attendant was great. During the day, we experienced tremendous breakfast staff and desk staff. I'm happy to say that made this stay a "5".
