Historical Traveller Reviews of The Westin Palo Alto Hotel

Very nice!

from MissBonie
The "Heavenly Beds" are heaven. The room was spotless. The staff was excellent, helpful and gracious. Only miss was there were no vending machines and I couldn't get a Diet Coke anywhere in the hotel on Sunday morning.

A Great GetAway

from LaWa
My husband and I stayed here for a wedding in Palo Alto. I loved this hotel. Mostly because it was everything you want in a upper end hotel, it was nice; it was clean; and the service was excellent. The hotel is nice, but the set up is maze like. We had a great corner room with extra windows. The beds are great, and I can rarely sleep in a hotel bed. Everytime we left our room, we would return to find it cleaned up. Very friendly, attentive service. Went above and beyond the call of duty. Nice pool and hot tub! Great hotel - will stay there again!

Quaint and Elegant for Silicon Valley

from rwaites
I stayed at the Westin Palo Alto on my last business trip to the area and enjoyed the stay very much. Every person on the hotel staff I came into contact with treated the guests with great respect. The hotel is located close to downtown Palo Alto and Stanford. It is a good location to stay if you have business in the area. The executive suites are huge and contain superior furniture and equipment for business use. The atmosphere at the hotel is very comfortable and elegant. You get the feeling you are in a much smaller hotel since the hotel rooms are built around a number of small courtyards with fountains and gardens, including one with a very nice swimming pool and a terrace around it. Good for sunning. The furnishings are upscale and very comfortable. I highly recommend this Westin.

Much Improved!

from ------
This hotel has much improved since my last stay in March 2005. I had two rooms booked starting on Thursday until Sunday. The rate was an amazing $144/room/ngt.
Pool facilities were clean and well serviced with Westin staff. Room Service was outstanding and top notch with service and quality. My only negative comment is the lack of recognition you receive as a Starwood Gold Member however this concern is not isolated to this hotel; I have experienced this problem at most Starwood Hotels; that is something the corporate office needs to address globally.

Stayed here one night while visiting Stanford with my daughter.
Room was OK, but not worth $319. I expected better for a Westin. As is often the case, the pictures on their website look much nicer than the real thing. On the plus side, within walking distance of shops and restaurants and across road from campus. "Heavenly Bed" had scratchy sheets and comforter that felt like weights on top of me. Room was very hot when we walked in, expecting AC after touring campus on a very hot afternoon. Disappointing but apparently the best of Palo Alto.


from JBond214
Stayed here for a buisness trip. My room was large and very clean. Very close to Stanford's campus. The business center was small - but suitable for my purposes. I'd recommend staying here for buisness or pleasure.

Great Hotel

from s Mom
Nice hotel with GREAT service from all staff. Pool area is nice but very very small-- not a place for families. Great for couples or business travelers. Great food. Parking garage has a strange design that makes it VERY hard to get in and out of. Would stay here again. The hotel is very clean and the beds very nice.

Nice place

from TravelsWithDoggie
The Westin in Palo Alto has lovely rooms and very high end feel to it. This makes it even more suprising that they allow dogs which they quite happily do. The rooms are bright with very comfortable beds, downtown is just a block away and the staff is quite helpful. All in all it was the experience a hotel should be.

Moldy courtyard and chemical smells

from 1travelca
The first thing I noticed when I got out of my car in the self-park underground garage was an overpowering smell of chlorine. Not sure if it is from pool equipment or what but it's unpleasant. I didn't think much of it, but after being in the hotel room for about 30 minutes my eyes and throat started burning. I don't know if it was something in the room or from that smell in the garage. On top of that, the room faces a courtyard which seems to be constantly wet due to a bunch of fountains (and probably all the recent rain). There is a terra cotta tiled rooftop in the courtyard, feet from the hotel room window, that is completely covered by mold. I had enough at this point and left after only an hour or so. Might be an okay hotel for people that aren't allergic to anything (they also accept pets and they don't have any non-pet rooms).

Great place to stay!

from wclodfel
I stay in Palo Alto about 15 nights per year and alternate between here and the Stanford Park. Typical Westin hotel, meaning well above average. Great location for getting to campus, walking downtown, etc. Highly recommended.

Top Local Tips for Palo Alto

great shooping and walking! downtown palo alto, stanford shopping center and menlo park (santa cruz street) are fun shopping areas........all are walking distance from the Westin.

Restaurants walk up and down University Avenue for a number of great restaurants

Discovery Museum and Zoo For a great morning with your little one, go the the Palo Alto Discovery Museum and Zoo - made for 2-5 year-olds, it's a great interactive morning and chance to see some of the native species (along with turtles, frogs, etc.). Designed for little ones.
