10/10 Exceptional

Perfect stay for a Stanford college visit
Everything about our stay was fantastic! The room was clean, comfortable and walked right out to the heated pool (the LED lights at night made for an extra vibey experience). The blood orange scented toiletries smelled incredible and were an extra nice touch, as was the complimentary coffee, tea, and water. Service was friendly and helpful, and the food at the poolside restaurant was surprisingly delicious. Getting up to Stanford (the purpose of our trip) was an easy bus ride or Uber, or a relatively pleasant 3 mile walk if you’re so inclined. I realized after we left that we were supposed to receive a complimentary bottle of wine that we never got, but that’s my fault for not remembering or asking about it.

We will come back for sure
The room was very large with a steam shower and exercise equipment in the room. Everything was cozy and comfy and it was the perfect place for my hubby and I to get away from the kids for a couple nights - and the restaurant kept us so well fed!! So yummy
