    Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto
    East Palo Alto, CA
    #1 in Best Hotels in Palo Alto
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 709 reviewsTripAdvisor (709)
    Free WiFi

    Located right off Route 101, the sleek, reflective shape of the Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto catches the eye of many passersby. But, like many Four Seasons properties, there is more to this hotel than its attractive design. Travelers relish the soothing brown decor and the state-of-the-art furnishings and bathroom fixtures found in the hotel's 200 guest rooms and suites, as well as in-room amenities such as L'Occitane bath products, down bedding and flat-screen TVs. And the on-site Quattro restaurant earns praise for pairing delectable Italian dishes with Californian wines. The Four Seasons also houses a full-service spa, a rooftop pool and a fitness center. But lodgers offered mixed reviews for the customer service: Many guests said they experienced friendly staff members that made their stays memorable. But others noted they encountered unhelpful and even rude employees and spa attendants.

    #4 in Best Hotels in Palo Alto
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 82 reviewsTripAdvisor (82)
    Free WiFi

    This Silicon Valley property in Palo Alto, California, exudes luxury. Previous guests claimed that The Clement Hotel's customer service is truly unmatched, adding that the all-inclusive perks, such as all meals at the restaurant, a fully stocked guest pantry and valet parking, more than justified the expensive rates to stay here. Inside the 23 guest rooms and suites, amenities like Matouk linens, flat-screen TVs, Nespresso coffee makers and minifridges are provided. Each space also features a stone-lined bathroom with dual sinks, a glass-enclosed shower, a soaking tub, upscale bath amenities and heated floors and seats. After settling into your digs, head to the rooftop, where a heated pool, cabanas, a whirlpool and panoramic city views are offered. Or, catch up on work in the business center or private boardroom. A fitness center is also available on-site. When you're ready to venture off-site, you'll find many Palo Alto businesses and the Stanford University campus nearby and San Francisco's sights about 30 miles away.

    Downtown Palo Alto's Garden Court Hotel features Mediterranean-inspired accents with stucco walls and wrought-iron detailing. Each of its 62 guest rooms features a marble bathroom (complete with an overhead rain shower), Italian linens by Rivolta Carmignani, fireplaces and plenty of natural light pouring in from expansive French doors that lead out to private balconies or terraces. Recent guests note the Garden Court's attention to detail: After all, it's the little things  a well-equipped gym, a complimentary continental breakfast and his-and-hers bathrobes in the closet  that count. One thing to note about this hotel: There is no on-site restaurant. However, the property does provide coffee, tea and pastries in the morning and cookies and fresh fruit throughout the day. Recent guests also suggested grabbing a meal at the nearby Italian restaurant, Il Fornaio, when hunger sets in.
