We checked in for one night and had to jet from SF back to LA.. We had a really nice experience with this Marriott property. The hotel provides happy hour with generous selections including a decent selection of wine and beer. After enjoying some appetizers, I really did not care to go out for dinner! Instead my husband and I...

I'm frequently in Palo Alto on business, and this Residence Inn and the Marriott Courtyard right down the street are my best places to stay. Close to the San Jose airport. Underground parking is easy, check-in is fast and good, quiet, clean they always have Wall Street Journals in the lobby in the a.m., the fitness facility is acceptable. The...

The staff is extremely helpful and very friendly. The room is clean and the area is a little bit away from the street so noise isn't a problem at all. The complimentary breakfast is really good they serve eggs, potato's and all the other basic breakfast items in the morning. Safeway is down the street and there's also a very...

We used this hotel during Stanford U commencement weekend. Of course this is the hotel's busiest time of the year and rates were fairly high. Our two bedroom suite was on the 1st floor. In addition to basic room accommodations, the suite included dishwasher, range with oven, microwave, lounging area and gas fire place. While the rooms were clean and...

I've stayed here many times and the staff are the nicest people. Everytime you walk into the hotel, they greet you and ask what exciting things you've done today and are sincerely interested in the restaurants and events of the day. The breakfast staff are so efficient, cleaning your table when you get up to get seconds and always greeting...

Like all Marriott owned or managed properties, this Residence Inn scores high on my checklist for "return visits." Yes, it is undergoing upgrading (during business hours) which will be beneficial for the long term. "Management Reception" from 6-9 p.m. is included---light meal including mid-quality wine which staff refills at your table without asking. Breakfast buffet is not cooked to order...

That was the reaction of my 6 year-old when we arrived at the Residence Inn and it about summed up our stay. The garage and elevator were smelly and unclean so we had a terrible first impression. In April, the hotel was undergoing a lot of construction so our ground floor room seemed especially awful. In the end, the room...

We picked the Residence Inn for its location, close to a family gathering we were attending. It was a very pleasant surprise. The recently decorated room is much larger than most comparably priced hotels and includes a kitchen with microwave, full-size refrigerator, and even a dishwasher. Check-in was quick and easy. Basic wireless or wired internet is free. Marriott gold...

This is a very convenient location in Los Altos but is set back from the road so it is rather quiet. They have a great little pool area and barbecue area as well. What makes this place great though is the staff. I've never had a request turned down and they go out of there way to accomodate you.
