Four Seasons Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto

Four Seasons Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The Four Seasons in Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto reflects the legendary service and commitment to quality of this luxury brand. Upscale touches are everywhere, from the beautifully manicured grounds to the sleek wood-paneled lobby to the spacious rooftop pool with free sunscreen. Rooms are bright and modern with floor-to-ceiling windows, and offer marble bathrooms, deep soaking tubs, and flat-screen TVs. Everything from the spa to the pool is top-notch, but spa treatments are expensive and there is a daily fee for Wi-Fi, making some feel nickel-and-dimed. The hotel is located right off the freeway, and while rooms are well-insulated to shield the noise, some still have unappealing freeway views.
Garden Court Hotel

Garden Court Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Garden Court Hotel is a standout boutique property in Downtown Palo Alto. The hotel's beautiful rooms are the highlight; they have elegant white-and-blue decor, upscale amenities, marble bathrooms, and in many, balconies overlooking the quaint courtyard. Property features include an upscale Italian restaurant, 7,000 square feet of meeting space, and a small fitness center. Though there is no spa, the hotel can arrange in-room massages, and owners can bring pets for a one-time fee (which covers pet-friendly amenities such as beds and treats). Those looking for more features -- such as a spa and a pool -- may consider the nearby, 200-room Four Seasons or the Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park, but guests return to the Garden Court for its elegant rooms and intimate vibe.
Creekside Inn

Creekside Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 136-room Creekside Inn along Matadero Creek in Palo Alto is a functional mid-range option. It looks a bit like a motel from the outside, but the property is pleasant, with tall, shady trees, ivy-covered pathways, and flowered grounds leading to a lovely courtyard with a round, stone fountain. Rooms are comfortable, with chain-like decor but nice amenities, including balconies, iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and microwaves. The bathrooms are basic and clean, but could use an overhaul. The fitness center and pool are both small but useful, and the neighboring Driftwood Deli is convenient. One rare feature unique to the inn is a charging station for electric cars, an increasingly common site in eco-conscious California. The area around the hotel, which includes an auto repair shop, is more residential than it is quaint.
Stanford Terrace Inn

Stanford Terrace Inn Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Stanford Terrace Inn is conveniently located across the street from Stanford University’s southeast end. The Palo Alto hotel has 80 units, all somewhat sparsely furnished with traditional-style furnishings. Rooms are incredibly spacious, though, and even the standard rooms come with sitting areas, large work spaces, microwaves, and mini-fridges. There are even “green” rooms with sophisticated air-filtration systems and biodegradable lotions and soaps. Unfortunately, the floors and walls are too thin, and noise from neighboring rooms is an issue. Overall, this is a great pick for guests visiting the campus who want some extra amenities during their stay -- there's a nice outdoor pool area, a relaxing sundeck, coin-operated laundry, free continental breakfast, free shuttle within Stanford's campus, and a fitness center (though it's incredibly small).
