I have stayed at this hotel several times and always had a truly great experience. I am usually here for work and for some reason I drive up from LA (car separation anxiety I guess) and I'm usually so tired from the drive this is my happy place. The bathroom is so beautiful I took Pictures a few years ago...

Very nice little hotel. I loved the coffee and danishes on each floor in the mornings. Fresh fruit in the room upon arrival. The little balcony overlooking the courtyard was also nice. My only negative is that room services is limited after 10pm and there are no local restaurants open.

Although a very brief stay, I found this hotel to be very inviting, with a well trained staff throughout. I had to depart very early, and Karim handled everything very smoothly for my departure, I really recommend this property

This is a picturesque hotel reminiscent of a boutique European hotel, set right in the heart of downtown Palo Alto. Everything about it is first class, from amenities to service to setting. It's walkable to restaurants and shops, but we were happy to see an Il Fornaio restaurant attached to it as it was pouring rain. We were visitng our...
