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

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Rooms are on the small side
  • Some rooms have freeway views
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

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.
