I stayed at the Epiphany for 6 nights with a group of business colleagues. I was pleased with the hotel's interiors - from the lobby to the bedroom, it was modern yet comfortable. I loved the look and feel of dark wood and metal in the lobby, and the homey yet hip design of the bedroom. No scrimping on bathroom essentials, they used malin+goetz toiletries, and basic necessities were in place. The bed and pillows were soft and comfortable. There was an Illy machine in the bedroom which took care of my caffeine fix. The food at their restaurant, Lure and Till, was delicious and it was a popular place at night. Great location, hotel was beside bars, cafes, and a few shops; and it was a mile away from Stanford.
The major nit that I had was the meal service. We were a large group so getting served at breakfast was a challenge, and there was one time when my breakfast room service order was not picked up. The service staff was quick to apologize though, and they were consistently courteous. Perhaps since the hotel is still new, they are still getting used to large groups and ironing out operational kinks.
Overall, it was still a very decent experience.
