Very Good8.0
Mila, us1 night trip
The Westin Palo Alto
Nice stay for a quick visit near campus.
It was close to the Stanford campus and also to shops and restaurants—with in a few minutes walk.
Sarah, us3 night trip
The Westin Palo Alto
felt like a 4-/3+ star hotel at most
The front desk representative that checked us in was very unfriendly. There's no greeting, no smile and her attitude made us feel that we might have owed her $200 since 1995. We honestly felt that she disliked us and trying to give us the worst room in the hotel. However, a more mature lady that checked us out was really nice and made us feel that it's the kind of service that the Westin brand should carry.

The Westin Palo Alto
Nice place to stay in Palo Alto
Great location - walking distance to Stanford, downtown Palo Alto, and just yards from the train station. Room was quiet and comfortable.
Craig, us2 night trip
The Westin Palo Alto
Poor night workers
Front desk night clerks were horrible & took over 3 hours to take care of noisy room next to us from 1am-4am on Friday. The manager took the night off our room but I had to deal with the lame from front desk on Sunday who took 45 mins trying to get us a taxi when Uber was running late & we finally got an Uber but almost missed our flight.
