“Woodsy Sophistication!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

The Stanford Park Hotel is a beautiful "old world" hotel, nestled in a woodsy area off the main street in Stanford. It's so charming, reminiscent of East Coast luxury hotels found in New England, the Adirondacks, etc. We loved it! Every amenity provided, perfect little touches in the room. Wonderful! Seems to be mainly a corporate property, prices midweek are high. So any weekend stays are a good value.

This is the first time I have stayed at the Stanford Park in several years. It has improved with time. The room was comfortable and the reception, bell service, dining and housekeeping staff were all well trained and friendly. Excellent value.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the railroad side.

Dear Fred,

Thank you for your return visit to the hotel and for your very nice comments. When we decided to renovate the hotel it was to refresh and update rather than change the warm comfortable feeling so many of our visitors enjoy. It is nice to receive confirmation that were successful. I am delighted that we met your expectation with the service and value provided and hope this means you will visit more frequently.

This is my third stay at the Stanford Park. As usual, it was wonderful. The location to all activities in Palo Alto - Menlo Park can't be beat. If Stanford is your destination, this is the hotel. You will be pampered during your stay.

I stayed in Stanford Park Hotel last week for three days. It is an exceptional Hotel. I came to town for business for the first time. Staying here made me feel like I am on vacation after work every day. It is a very special Hotel. I travel frequently worldwide . But this hotel amaze and surprise me in excellence, detail and quality in each and every way. The service from check-in to restaurant to housekeeping was superb. The detail in every way was excellent. The rooms are very beautiful in every sense. The outside seating both inside yard and outside very special. The landscape is very peaceful. The restaurant service and food were excellent. This hotel exceeded my expectation in each and every point of view. I am very picky and very hard to please, but this hotel offered nothing but excellence in each and every possible way. I be traveling to Palo Alto for business often and this hotel will be my number one choice. This hotel would be an excellent choice for a romantic stay since it offers nothing but joy and beauty.

We have stayed at the Stanford Park Hotel numerous times because we can always count on superb, friendly service, and luxurious, comfortable rooms in this hotel that is warm and inviting throughout and very convenient to Palo Alto and Stanford. Even the gym is first-rate with plenty of modern equipment, space, and even complimentary fruit-laced water and apples. The warm chocolate chip cookies available in the lobby at night are a special treat, too. The real standout feature is the service--everyone we've encountered at the hotel over many years is professional, genuinely friendly, and eager to please, making a visit to the hotel a pleasant, uplifting experience. ---Jeanne F

This hotel is perfectly located for anyone visiting Stanford University. The room was very nice and quiet. The bar serves unique drinks and has a great wine list. We signed up and borrowed two bicycles for an entire day to cruise around Stanford Campus. The hotel is also very close to the shopping center that has stores.

Room Tip: Ask for one away from the street for the quietest rooms.

I love staying at this hotel. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the grounds are lovely and the pool is a very secluded spot to enjoy a little 'me' time. And I love the new firepits in the courtyard.

A favourite highlight for me is the staff. The Bellman, Nicolas, always has a warm greeting for me and is super attentive to each guest. Elizabeth on the front desk almost greets me by name, which is a nice treat for a road warrior like myself.

Karen, Toronto

Room Tip: They're all good rooms.
