    Its location is good. Very close to Stanford Uni, El Camino Real, Downtown Palo Alto and CalTrain Station.

    The place is convenient and staff nice but the walls are paper thin.

    They recently finished renovation of the lobby and conference center. Good place to hold a large event.

    The hotel seems extremely dated, and the location is deceptively inconvenient to the University Ave strip if you're on foot.

    Huge room, pleasant staff and convenient location but so noisy! The walls are like paper so you can hear the trains, traffic and just about everything from your neighbours. Light sleepers be warned!

    I don't know what enjoy more about this place... The trains that run right behind the hotel or the fact that you can hear elevators running from just about anywhere. #argh

    The walls are so thin I can hear the guy next door's iPhone vibrate.

    Checkout the koi pond and try to stay zen about this hotel. They charge $9.99 a day for Internet which should be a crime. Protip: book a $69 shuttle to SFO with the front desk to save $$

    The walls are super thin and the cable TV was super pixelated and not functioning half the time. Great location right by the Caltrain Station, but not the greatest property.

    Ask if the lounge is open beforehand - they keep closing it often. Pack a warm sweater for winter - hotel halls are cooooold! Read more

    Small bathroom compares to the Westin next door. The AC unit is in each room which is fine but it says the establishment is older. The Westin has central AC & newer.

    Dated, paper thin walls, flaky wifi, pool rarely cleaned of dead insects. But good location, friendly staff and a bit of a sun trap

    The swimming river is really murky and has giant fish that attack you. Bring a mask and a spear.

    nice hotel..I recommend it! but when ordering room service beware on top of tax they add a room delivery fee and a tip tongue total!

    Love the location, the pool area, and the koi pond serene ambiance. Dislike the old rooms, noisy beds and 90s style alarm clocks.

    Gym open from 6am to 10pm. Get there early. Treadmills are all taken pretty quickly and BONUS-- there is a basket of head sets if you forget yours. Like I always forget mine. Happy Sweating!!

    Terrifyingly difficult to find your way around the complex. Other than that, pretty good!

    Overall a nice place and great location. The wireless internet is pretty weak though. Barely worked in our room and I wasn't able to pick it up on my iPad in the lobby.

    The Starwood preferred rooms are amazing minus the heavy doors in the place that can wake you up when neighbors leave or enter their rooms.

    Ask for a garden facing room, that way you'll not hear traffic or Caltrain. Wifi worked fine on 2nd floor room 2046.
