Hotel California is a nice, smaller hotel very close to Stanford University. The staff at the hotel were very nice and made my extended stay very comfortable. I especially loved sitting on the terrace and enjoyed the beautiful flowers and sunshine. I will definitely recommend Hotel California to anyone who is looking for a good value and great location when visiting Palo Alto.
It's the creation of Ray Handley, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and world traveler. Each room is different. Artwork is found throughout. I felt spoiled and a bit giddy here, between exceptional tapas and live music poolside to fine detail, luxurious bedding and a seven foot giraffe in the African Room where I overnighted.
Great location, very competitive prices in an area where hotel room rates are sky high. Great place for the budget traveler.
