I like the Sheraton Palo Alto for various reasons. First the location which is within walking distnace of a wide choice of restaurants downtown. I like the proximity to nice stores like Palo Alto bycilcles and the proximity to the Stanford campus which is ideal for running or walking.
In addition to this the staff of the Sheraton Palo Alto is particularly friendly... must be the weather or the location, but they rank to the top of my list of hotels for friendliness, going to extra mile to help out and so on...
And this is consistent at each visit!
Of course the rooms are very nice and clean.
The lounge also has very good breakfast food.

Rated 1 out of 5 by UWS2 Disappointed
Room was too small for the furniture so there was no comfortable place to put a suitcase or sit. The walls were so thin that we heard offensive noises everytime someone walked by, flushed a toilet or took a shower in another room. We even heard the housekeeping staff's chatter outside our room in the hallway and their storeroom across the hall. We also almost lost our luggage because the bell capitan put it away without telling us after we checked out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by breeeeeett Overall, not very good
Obviously, this is the Sheraton, it has many nice features, but all in all for the price you are paying you don't get a very nice place. Here are a few of the problems: very few outlets (in case you need to charge things), air conditioner was very loud and barely cooled the room, no mini-fridge, fire alarm forcing us all out into the pool area in the night, etc.

The Sheraton at Palo Alto is in a great location. The general environment of the hotel (bot inside and outside) is quite nice.
But one thing that I am complaining about is: the drain of the bath tub in my room is kinda clogged partially, which make the water accumulated during showering... This makes me very uncomfortable and really shouldn't happen at a Sheraton. I only stayed for one night so I didn't even bother to contact the facility management. But it is rather disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DiZylk Quietly Perfect!
I was surprised how clean and quiet our room at the Sheraton Palo Alto was. The short walk to the award winning Reposado was so convenient.Also, the hotel was directly across from Stanford. We will definitely stay at the Sheraton again. Thanks!.

Sheraton hotels are excellently represented by this property in Palo Alto. We have racked up four stays under our SPG account here. Each room we have stayed in is very clean, spacious and recently remodeled. The lavatories are well lit and allow enough space to get started for the day without interrupting others in the room. We’ve started many mornings off with prompt and personalized room service on the balcony overlooking its courtyard full of lush gardens, a babbling brook leading to the pond filled with Koi, all opening to a row of cushy lounge chairs surrounding a rejuvenating pool. Did I mention it’s next to the main restaurant and bar where one can sip drinks with fellow guests until moonrise, or dine al fresco at their Sunday brunch buffet? We love this location especially because it is quietly nestled between Stanford shopping center; located just across the street. Staying on University avenue allows one to walk around the plethora of shopping, café dining, or just enjoy the beautiful neighborhood of old faculty homes. Though the Hotel provides excellent dining, it does provide a refrigerator for all the organic goodies one can pick up at the local market. This comes in handy after using the indoor exercise room. Don’t forget to utilize the ample covered parking around back if needed, and the friendly staff who are there to aid around the clock. So if you are looking for that weekend getaway, stop off between travels, or planning an event please call upon the Sheraton Hotel Palo Alto!

Rated 3 out of 5 by docMB Seriously? No refrigerator?
For the amount I paid to stay at this hotel, I was significantly disappointed in the in-room amenities (or lack thereof). No fridge! Not even for a mini-bar. Costly wifi! Ridiculous parking costs! With this being the recommended hotel for a wedding we were attending, we had high expectations. The staff was only moderately helpful (asked me if I preferred to receive points or $5/day for the green-program. I responded $5 credits. Had to come back to the desk two days later to get the vouchers because they'd signed me up for points after all.) Even with the sign on the door, the housekeepers cleaned the room. The remote batteries in my sister's room died and the hotel tried to charge her for the replacement batteries. Bottom line: stay somewhere else.
