          The bathroom was quite impressive in design and cleanliness.

        • Older travelers

          Very comfortable and luxurious beds. Very quiet. Very polite and engaging staff.

          At this price point, the bottled water should be free!

          The bed!!

          The Menu and In-Room movie feature on the TV was not working ... a very very big disappointment!!! I stayed with my adult daughter and it was a luxurious one-night "get-away" for us (a dr. appt at Stanford) and we were looking forward to watching a movie together. I know that sounds unimportant, but my daughter has four kids and this was really a one-night treat for us!! Front desk staff did not seem too concerned.

          the hotel room was very clean

          the hotel was over priced, the staff was not well-trained, compare to the westin hotels in other countries. the room was comfortable, but the hotel's other services are not too impressive considering the money i paid.

          The only good thing about this Westin is the location.

          The refrigerator is broken. I asked for a new one(it still didnt work)and the front desk even gave me attitude. And the hotel told me the refrigerator is for free.But in the end,they still charged me 20usd per night for that broken refrigerator. Besides,the Internet is the sooo shitty. It took me five minutes to open one page. Aren't we in palo alto? I will never trust westin again.

          Value for money. Great location. Good service.

          Dirty spots on the carpet. For one day - no hot water in the shower. Paid wi fi.

          Not the cheapest but one of the best in Palo Alto

          Slightly more expensive than similar chains

        • Older travelers

          Clean, friendly, near Stanford where conference took place

          Extremely expensive for one night's stay (arrived at 9.30pm and departed at 7.30am), surprised that internet and breakfast, that are commonly included today, were not incuded in price. This hotel was recommended by conference and we will definilty select another hotel the next time.
