    Lovely boutique hotel in the center of downtown Palo Alto. Room was quiet and well appointed and the bed was very comfy. Bathrooms are a little tight. There is a nice complimentary continental breakfast that is provided each morning on every floor.

    I attended a conference at this hotel. I was impressed by its valet, kitchen service, conference room setup, presentation equipment, besides its court yard for us to take fresh air during breaks. Highly recommended for business events.
