We felt very comfortable here A review of Sheraton Palo Alto Hotel
We left the Days Inn in Palo Alto to stay here. Our room was exceptionally clean, was very nicely appointed (most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, stone tile bathroom, everything we desired already in the room), and the staff was very friendly. We have a dog, and surprisingly for such an upscale place, she was welcome everywhere in the hotel and grounds, even poolside.
We agree with other reviewers that there is a sound problem. We stayed trainside, and the train never bothered us (didn't run at night). However, other guests in hall were continuously noisy, and we heard every sound from every other room.
The location is spectacular - we walked to Stanford for conferences (free shuttle leaves from the motel), downtown for meals (motel is right at the edge of downtown, and took about a mile drive to Menlo Park, as well.
I don't like the added charge of parking ($9 per day). It should be included in the room rate. Very tacky. However, we weren't charged extra for having a dog, which we usually are, so for us it was wash.
We were overall very satisfied with our stay and will definitely return to this motel.
