We spent Saturday night at this vintage hotel in downtown Palo Alto. The hotel is beautifully restored. Our room was small but really comfortable. We spent a few hours reading in the comfortable lobby. Lisa, the friendly desk clerk, made us feel very welcome. Because it was the weekend, we were able to park our car for free in the city garage across the street. The hotel is not air-conditioned and it was a warm day, but we left the window open and were comfortable. Our room faced Ramona street and the noise bothered me a little. I could have closed the window. It was so nice to be right downtown with the restaurants and shops.
