I traveled to Palo Alto on business and stayed at the Creekside for a few days and what a treat. The hotel was located close enough to everything I needed and ended up making a business trip into sort of a vacation. Even though I was at a conference for ten hours a day, coming back to this hotel every night was something to look forward to. Definitely not your typical hotel by any means.
The property is broken up into several types of buildings all mixed in with tons of trees, plants, water features and gardens so it makes for an interesting experience just walking around. It felt so relaxing and peaceful everywhere I went. The room was fantastic, I ended up on the third floor and had a balcony in the front overlooking a big area, including a stream and bridge. There was wildlife all over and the sunrise and sunsets were sort of amazing.
The hotel is not new at all and I was completely impressed by how well everything was maintained and kept up on. My room had an amazing retro feel to it with lots of light coming in from both sides. It was clean, beds were really comfortable and the pillows were great as well.
There is a great restaurant on site and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and a full bar to hang out in. Also a connivence store on site with liquor was nice. The front desk employees were super nice and helpful for the entire stay. I noticed the property also had electric car hookups and plenty of parking. I will stay here again for sure. Its not a newer property but its got a certain magic that you just can't find very often.
