    Location

    Our room was located in a section that was not handicap accessible. It was noisy because of loud a/c fans and refrigerator.

  • Older travelers
    6.0

    Courteous staff.

    The thermostat in our room didn't work properly. (Check #604.) It either blasted heat or a/c, but didn't stop when the selected temperature was reached. Otherwise, the room was good.

  • 10.0

    Courteous and professional staff

    SO happy we had gotten an upgrade!!! The staff was very friendly and kind as well.

  • 6.6

    They have a great restaurant downstairs by the lobby, pool/spa area was great. There fitness center was pretty good as well.

    The veiw from our room was horrible, they gave us a room that was looking out at an empty wall space. For the price I paid I was expecting more of a nicer view even if it was just of the street. The WiFi did not work in our room, it was super slow. They dont provide you a microwave unless you ask first.

    My husband needed to be near Stanford Medical Center for an appointment. The young man who checked us in, immediately did a map search and printed out directions for our early morning appointment. That evening we had a great steak dinner in the restaurant. Jose was a wonderful and personable waiter and the food was excellent! The steak was prepared to perfection!

    The furnace/AC ran all night. It didn't turn off or on based on the temperature in the room.

  • 8.2

    We loved everything about the hotel but the bed!

    The bed was like sleeping on a slab of granite!

  • 7.8

    I felt good being there.

    Breakfast was ok.

  • 7.0

    The room was spacious , we had complementary newspaper every day

    We travelled with our three month old son and asked for early check in but the front desk could not be less sympathetic , we only got the room early because one of the managers felt sorry about us sitting in the lobby

  • 7.8

    Liked to property and location.

    Room could be a bit nicer but we had a good rate.

  • 8.2

    Dinner was delicious!

    The bed was too hard. I could not get comfortable.

  • 7.4

    The grounds were very nice and the staff was professional.

    No breakfast at all, not even coffee, for a supposedly luxury location. A $12 fee for parking and a "resort fee" tacked on to the bill reduced the value in staying here to none whatsoever.

  • 9.6

    Off the street with no road noise. The staff was super accommodating and pleasant. Close to Stanford

    Love for the sauna to get fixed

  • 7.0

    Good location, pool was nice.

    Rooms at front were noisy, especially when people were standing in car park smoking. Breakfast was not included. This was not mentioned on the booking so I assumed it was. Staff could have been a bit more friendly and helpful when I enquired, they just said its not included.

  • 7.4

    Very good hotel
