Positive Reviews

Friendly staff.

Staff is on hand to ensure your stay is comfortable and meeting your expectations. If you have any requests or needs, be sure to let hotel staff know so they can help - they are also available if you need suggestions on sightseeing around the area.

Spacious and quiet.

Rooms at the Westin are spacious - even more so if you upgrade to a suite. Rooms are well decorated and feature plush amenities - the rooms overlook the courtyard so there's little noise to worry about during a stay.

Nice amenities.

Enjoy using the amenities throughout the property because they are up to date and well maintained. During a stay, you have many facilities to use including the fitness studio and pool in particular - while they might be smaller than you'd find at other hotels, they are in good condition.

Negative Reviews

Pricier rooms.

Given the location and demographics, the room might seem a bit expensive for some guests. Located near Stanford and within driving distance of many top technology companies, the Westin is a popular spot for high end travelers to stay which means prices are higher than other Westin locations.

Seasonally busy.

During the school year in particular, the Westin could reach maximum occupancy when Stanford's football team is playing at home - it's a good hotel if you're going to a game as everything is within walking distance and the school is adjacent to the hotel.

Standard hotel.

While the hotel is well cleaned and maintained, it is fairly average in design and amenities. For the price, you might expect more personalized service or unique amenities, but the provided services are standard Westin.
