A gorgeous garden setting and water fountain welcome guests to this property along Matadero Creek. Inside, they find contemporary style and convenient amenities, such as a 24-hour fitness center, free wireless Internet and classic American food and drink from on-site Cibo Restaurant & Bar. A complimentary local shuttle service means many guests don't need a car, but free parking means no added costs for those who do.

Rooms

The spacious rooms with contemporary decor and furnishings are outfitted with either one queen or two double beds and are all nonsmoking accommodations. Luxury linens, eco-friendly bath products and free high-speed wireless Internet access are standard amenities, while suites also have kitchenettes. Each room features a private patio that looks out over Creekside's lush garden property.

Property features

Guests can keep in shape with a workout in the 24-hour fitness center or a swim in the outdoor heated pool. In the mornings, coffee-and-tea service is available in the lobby, while evenings bring a complimentary wine reception. Classic American fare is served three times a day at the on-site restaurant and bar, Cibo, and is available via room service. Perhaps the best perk of all, though, is the free hybrid-car service that shuttles guests between the hotel and locations within a five-mile radius. Guest parking is free, too.

Stayed there on a business trip, exceptional staff

I travelled to the hotel on a business trip, and stayed there for a week. Besides the fact the hotel is very accessible - located on El Camino Real, had ample of parking space (and also offering electric cars charging stations, should you need this kind of service), and the staff were fabulous, especially after my journey back home, which took nearly 24hrs due to distance, when I then realized that I forgot some important valuables at the hotel. I called them, and although it was over a day since I left my room and I had assumed any belongings that were left there are now long gone - they immediately agreed to try and retrieve my items, and once they did find them - they agreed to mail it over to me at NO CHARGE besides the actual shipping fees which I obviously paid for, while keeping me updated and being SUPER FRIENDLY. I've really never expected a service that good from a hotel, and I couldn't thank the hotel staff enough for going through the efforts of making sure that I get my valuables back. Back to the hotel itself - while from the outside some of their buildings might be looking aging, they are actually in a good shape with the rooms interior in actually very good shape as they looks to be renewed and very clean. Also a pool, a restaurant and a deli are available on site, though I haven't had the chance of trying them out. Would definitely come again.

Close to HP Corporate HQ

I attended a training session at HP Corporate headquarters and wanted to minimize the morning commute. The hotel is conveniently located and very comfortable. It was just what I was looking for.

Clean, comfortable, and a good value

A good value hotel option in Palo Alto. You can walk to numerous restaurants, and are just a short drive from Stanford and downtown. The room was big and comfortable, and grounds were nice. The staff was very friendly - they even upgraded us to a deluxe king without any prompting (the room was available so we thought we'd surprise you).

Nice Hotel but Could Be Better for the Price

No Room Service. No vending machine with food. The only vending machine with drinks on the premises was broken one night. The convenience store on the premises closes at 8pm.

Stay In Palo Alto

Hotel was great. People were very friendly and helpful. The room was very dark at night. We should have had a night light option.
