The second sink (in an alcove adjoining, but separated from, the bathroom) would be particularly handy for couples. Ditto the desk which is cleverly designed to serve as a breakfast table (with two chairs of... More

This was a fun getaway to a wonderful hotel. The service was excellent, staff genuinely friendly and property located within walking distance to downtown Palo Alto. The room was beautiful with a fireplace and nice sitting area. We enjoyed the charming character inside and outside sitting by the fire pit in the evening. We will definitely be back!!

i didn't stay in the hotel, but had a business meeting over a latte and bagels. comfortable place with overstuffed chairs and the staff leave you alone, without hovering over you. lots of small groups of people having animated discussions. it's very close to stanford and the VC capital of sand hill road.
