Visiting Palo Alto this is a great hotel to retreat to after a long day of technology visits. It is comfortable and clean. Has great beds. Internet works well. Has all the facilities you need. Walking distance to Stanford and the center of the city. Missing a training room. Otherwise perfect to stay when in Palo Alto.

The amenities of this hotel are exceptional and the staff are incredibly accommodating and extremely friendly, especially Angelo. He went above and beyond to fulfill all of our requests. Of note, the complimentary chocolate truffles made on site along with the port makes for a fantastic end of the day treat! I am hoping to come back to Palo Alto...

I stayed here while presenting an educational program in the meeting space. First the lobby is on the 2nd floor and very quaint. Fire in the fireplace and wonderful greeting. Very easy to check in and easy instructions to my room. The balcony looked over the interior patio and was quiet and nice breeze. The bed was like melting into...

I was greeted happily by Donovan during my arrival. He has such a pleasant and welcoming smile, instantly offered to assist me with my luggage.

Upon arrival we were greeted at street level and escorted to the reception area. Our room was gorgeous with beautiful linens and Molton Brown toiletries. Our private balcony overlooked a European like courtyard which we thoroughly enjoyed. We look forward to getting back very soon.

We stayed at Garden Court last week for 5 nights in a King suite (#311) and had a fantastic experience all around. I'm a VERY picky traveler and usually stay at a Four Seasons or Rosewood, but decided this time to try this boutique hotel in the center of Palo Alto. The staff was amazing at every level, starting with...
