Fabulous 8.6 From 461 reviews

Good 6.0
We loved the staff, location and service of this hotel but the sound of the fan/heater was excessively loud, and prevented us from getting a good nights sleep. Further, the walls were very thin. We could hear the elevators and the comings and going’s of others even though our room was far from the elevators (perhaps it was because we were facing El Camino?)

Pleasantly surprised.
Palo Alto hotels are really expensive. We stayed in a 4 star hotel last time. Crowne Plaza is rated as 3.5 Star, and let me tell you it was much, much nicer than the 4 star hotel. Friendly helpful staff, very clean, nice pool, nice restaurant and bar, small snack store. I won’t hesitate to book here again.

Loved our stay.
Had an awesome stay. The staff were amazing, so helpful and friendly, the room was great, the breakfast also. It was quiet and peaceful while in a great and location and had a unique style and an interesting sense of history while being current in all amenities. We will definitely make it our place to stay when we return to the area.

Clean and comfortable
Comfortable hotel in Palo Alto. Liked the self serve convenience kiosk and night time relaxation packet. Bar food is tasty, which is good since there isn't much around.
Vanessa, ca1 night business trip
Good 6.0
No view in room since they are painting the wall.
There was no indication that they are painting on the wall outside at the time I booked the rooms. There was no view at all since it was all covered with plastic film. Not pleasing to see all the dirt that is trapped on the outside and felt like a prison since there was nothing to see at all. Furnitures seems outdated but I guess they want to keep the cabana feel. Closet is somehow in the bathroom which is kind of weird. I booked two rooms. One TV stand comes with some sliding door that almost fell onto my toddler while the other room doesn’t even have the sliding door at all. I think it is common enough for the sliding problem that I am not surprised they actually removed them. No one swims in the pool since the weather is cold but there was a lot of fallen leaves which prompted to think they don’t maintain it often. Hotel came with breakfast but the menu needed to be better. After turning in our orders the night before, we got calls like 15 minutes before our schedule time to request us how we wanted the eggs to be cooked? They should have indicated on the menu to prevent the waste of time to confirm customers’ request in my opinion.

Nice and comfy room
The room was really nice and clean but the windows were covered in some film so we had no view whatsoever sort of felt cave like they should take that stuff off. We also had problems with the keys not working correctly and had to change rooms before we even got her first one in that instance the door didn’t lock all the way. Room813 was The second room we were assigned to and again had trouble with the keys and actually even locking the door and closing is behind us

Pleasant stay!
Nice hotel! Clean and not too many guest. Pool was open so it was nice to go hang by the pool for a bit. We were bummed to lean that the gym and the sauna were closed. 🙁 Our room was clean and comfortable!

cold shower
The facility was okay but we had to take a cold shower in the morning due to lack of hot water and there were no cups disposable or otherwise in the bathroom.
