Owner description: This 285-foot tower furnishes an outstanding view and houses the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution, and Peace.

I always take our visitors up on the tower (it is, however, closed during vacation times). One can see the whole campus from up on top, and far beyond. It's a great place to visit if you are on Stanford campus.

Enjoyed the interesting view of the campus from the tower and loved the two historical collections regarding Lou and Herbert Hoover.

My review is somewhat limited, since my many visits were for medical reasons i.e., many Doctor offices on some floors). The Tower and associated building is interesting from an historical & architectural view.

You need to visit the Hoover Tower if you come to Stanford U. You get a great view of the area and you can even see the city of San Francisco. You get to appreciate the wind if you like that. The staff member is helpful if you have any questions.

You can see to San Francisco on a clear day, which Palo Alto brags many of. And fun to see the campus. Parking is a nightmare, bring lots of quarters.
