“Always Exceptional”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

This is such a lovely place to stay when visiting Stanford. It is 3 minutes from campus and across the street from a fabulous shopping mall with several restaurant options. It has a beautiful courtyard, a welcoming restaurant/bar, and a well equipped fitness center. The rooms have every amenity including free water and wifi. But it's the little things you notice. Warm, fresh baked cookies in the evening, free wine tastings every weekday, and free bicycles for borrow. The pricing can get high and is very variable depending on whether you're there during the week or a weekend, but this is our place of choice when in town.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms near the dumpsters--lots of noise in the morning.

Stayed here for 2 days with husband on a business trip in May. Check in easy, efficient. Our room was small and odd shaped, but then again we'd requested a quiet, out of the way room, which it was. Best thing about the hotel is that it takes business seriously: there's the WiFI, the 24 hour business center with free printing, the Wall Street Journal. Hotel was tastefully decorated, and clean. Pool was pleasant. Location great for Menlo Park. Only "heads up" for guests such as ourselves coming from Europe-- the restaurant serves ver-y generous portions. One could easily split an entree for two. Highly recommend for those doing business in the area.

Green Features: Rather odd that they are proud of being "environmentally friendly" as during our stay the air-co was on-- as well as fireplace. (US hotels in general have to make it easier to open windows at night to sleep in cool air instead of using air co.)

I visited San Francisco on a long weekend, June 24 to June 26. I tried to arrange a residence around Pebble Beach and have a tour along 17 Miles, but found no room was available even you could afford seven hundred dollars a night. Then I used Google Map, searched hotels around San Francisco, check their prices and rankings, double check with Tripadvisor. It seemed Standford Park Hotel can offer a good price in this kind of long weekend holiday. It was just as good as the Tripadvisor ranking showed. I really enjoyed my stay there.

This is a top notch hotel with top notch staff. We enjoyed not only the lovely ambiance of the hotel, but also our comfortable room and the wonderful amenities. Our breakfast was delicious and the service was excellent. The location was perfect for our trip to Stanford. We can't say enough about how great our stay was here. Unfortunately, we were only there one night, but look forward to returning. We highly recommend the Stanford Park Hotel.

Room Tip: I'm sure any room would be perfect. Our room happened to face the busy street, but besides havi...

Hollywood has created a California which many never find when they visit, much to their disappoinment. This hotel delivers, by offering a sense of the generous suburban California story, for real. Relaxed, comfortable and friendly. Many homely rooms facing a green courtyard. And, I did not feel the constant clamouring for tips which impoverishes so many hotel and restaurant experiences in the United States.

Stanford Park Hotel made us feel very comfortable ---- the room, the food and the environment. Everything is perfect! Especially it is so closed to Stanford campus. The next day we visited Stanford campus and looked around "silicon valley" guided by friends. We will stay in this hotel for the future trips for sure.

I stayed a couple of nights on business. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are pleasant, the food was fine and the general ambience is classy. Good selection of interesting beers. There is a nice courtyard where you can sit out and enjoy the sunshine. A very good choice for Stanford or Palo Alto and I would stay again.
