Landed in San Jose. It was crazy busy with an Anime convention. People with fox tails and mouse ears everywhere. That's cool if that's your thing but we're just a normal average family of five. Been on planes and airports for six hours. We all felt like we could use a little more elbow room. Making the short trip to...

I have been to several Westin Hotels, two on a recent road trip with my dog while my floors were being refinished. It is important to know that pretty much anywhere you stay in Palo Alto during the week is going to be ridiculously expensive. The week-end prices drop substantially. I believe that a a hotel is "dog friendly" when...

I was recently there. The staff are very friendly, from bell desk to in room dining. The hotel is decent, not sure if the room is worth $450 per night. But it is clean and it has one of the best beds, heavenly bed. They offer Starbucks in the room, but I would like them to offer me a hot...

Nice Westin. Very clean, staff is very friendly and overall a nice upscale property. It's very centrally located and easy to get to. I always love staying at Starwood properties because I find them to be very welcoming and calm. This hotel was no different - after a long day of working it was a great place to come back...

Very convenient location - right between Stanford and downtown Palo Alto. Very walkable - awesome for runners with the huge park across the street. Walking distance to the mall, too. Very friendly staff at front desk. Nice room - perfect Westin bed is super comfortable. Downside would be the bar is tiny (and the bartender is plain weird - she...

This was the second Westin I stayed during my California trip, and once again, Westin didn't let me down! The hotel wasn't fancy but very comfortable. It lives up to the Westin name. The bed was great, the service was great, the room was nice. Really, nothing to complain. I also like their TV that comes with a few free...

Stayed here over a weekend to watch a tournament on the Stanford campus. Was fun to run into other athletes at the hotel, as well as see some wedding participants. Room was perfect, including Westin Heavenly Bed and location is awesome - walking distance to campus and both shopping/restaurant areas. Will definitely stay here again!

This is a very nice Westin. My husband and I live in town, and we always choose this place for get-aways. The hotel has a small restaurant, quiet, great food, wonderful service. The beds are VERY COMFORTABLE. We love to use room service here, and all the staff are totally welcoming. Convenient parking garage, seamless check-in and out process, wonderful...

I stayed for 2 days for business. We had a group of 10. The hotel is a typical Westin. Their gym was small and didn't have a club level. It was fine but was more expensive than I would have expected. I'd go back if I were in the area.

This is our second visit to this Westin. My daughter has had to have several procedures at Stanford and this hotel is super close and they give a special rate for Stanford patients. The hotel staff was very accommodating and sincerely concerned for our situation. I notified them that we would have a late check in and asked when room...

“Most of the rooms appear to be on courtyards. It muffles ant street noise and are charming to look at.”
