Garden Court Hotel - Palo Alto
The hotel is tucked away but very quiet and nice. The staff, valet, bell man, front desk, housekeeping, and room service, were all wonderful. The room was big and very clean. The bed was very comfortable. However, I could not find an extra blanket to use while watching tv in the living room. The food was delicious also.

Awesome hotel. Question Saturday night booking
Great hotel. Clean classy convenient. Only issue is that is a courtyard style hotel and has weddings that noise spills out into courtyard. Still hearing wedding enthusiasm at midnight.
