Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. Last week, I wrote about my recent stay at the boutique King George Hotel near Union Square in San Francisco. The hotel is part of the Greystone Hotel Group which has a few boutique hotels along the West Coast. Recently, my girlfriend and I stayed at the Creekside Inn, another Greystone Hotel, down in Palo Alto, a short drive award from Stanford University. We stayed there Friday night in mid December and the property was very scenic and quiet. Here are some photos from near the hotel lobby. As it’s name would imply, the hotel is near a creek and there are a few bridges that cross over the dry creek. Check in was very quick and we drove our car closer to our room.
There was a very comfortable king bed in the room and next to the bed, there was a tablet with hotel info, nearby restaurants, and points of interest around Palo Alto.
In the corner, there was a table with 2 chairs, and an overhead lamp. The was also a dresser and TV along the front wall.
There was also a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. We were only there for 1 night, so we did not use any of those appliances. There was also a closet with an ironing board, umbrella, safe, luggage rack, ice bucket, hairdryer, and robe.
The bathroom was very modern and had a big sink with plenty of counter space and a few bathroom toiletries.
The half shower with nice, but I really wish the shower door was longer to keep more of the hot air inside. There was a second robe in the bathroom, so my girlfriend and I could each wear our own.
Off of the bedroom, there was a small balcony overlooking the courtyard. At night, there wasn’t much to see, but during the day, the view was much nicer. The fountain in the courtyard was relaxing.
After we walked across the street for breakfast, we sat by the fountain and relaxed. The fountain is very calming.
If you have business near Palo Alto or are visiting Stanford University (or Stanford Stadium for a college football game), this hotel is very close by (roughly 2 minutes away). If you have any questions about the hotel, please let me know. Have a great day.
