It's a great hidden treasure in the middle of Palo Alto
I can't wait to go back. The rooms are so beautiful and the bed was so luxurious. I so wanted to take the pillows home with me

Cute hotel with a boutique type Palo Alto feeling. The food & service are great and they do a really wonderful job for private parties.

We had our team holiday dinner here and it was amazing. The dining room is the perfect size, spacious and yet surprisingly intimate. The chef crafted an inventive menu that displayed a wide array of creativity and scrumptiousness. I'd highly recommend the hotel, and its staff, if you're looking for a luxury boutique hotel in Palo Alto that will cater to your needs. It's a great spot for wedding receptions, team dinners or other events that require a bit more space than your typical restaurant might be able to provide you.

Great place for a wedding reception. I came here last night for my friends' wedding and it turned out to be an excellent place to host a reception/dinner/entertainment. The dining room was smaller than most other places, but for a smaller wedding reception, it was perfect. The fillet mignon I had was excellent!!! The dance floor was small but large enough to fit a live band, also.

Beautiful small hotel with flare in the middle of DT Palo Alto. It's a short walk down University Ave to Caltrain if you want to get around the Bay Area or up to the city. Convenient location with lots of shops and restaurants in the area all in walking distance. They have meeting room and banquet space. Lovely courtyard and I like the lights in the evening.

It's in Palo Alto, so it's nice. I came here for a networking event. Parking nearby is horrendous so be prepared to walk. Otherwise the hotel is a good experience -- nice decor, good ambiance.

Great hotel in downtown Palo Alto. Nice rooms that have great beds and look like they have been redone recently. They always provide great service and it's right in the middle of downtown PA.

Beautiful hotel in downtown palo alto, giving visitors walking-distance access to many of palo alto's top restaurants and attractions. Many of the rooms have verandas that overlook the central courtyard. Room service is provided by the excellent Italian restaurant downstairs, Il fornaio. The only drawback is the lack of a pool, but to cool down in the summer months travelers may go to the beach or the spa.
