Garden Court Hotel Review

: Located in the heart of downtown Palo Alto on tree-lined University Avenue, this 62-room hotel pairs simple stucco exteriors with charming touches like wrought-iron balconies, a Mediterranean-style courtyard and vibrant fuschia bougainvillea. The property completed a $9-million renovation in early 2010 and offers rooms and suites with plush furnishings and high-end amenities, including Aveda bath products, Peet's coffee, Bose CD radios, nightly turndown service and fresh flowers. Guests enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access, as well as fresh fruit and a free evening port-and-cookie selection in the lobby. There's a small fitness center on-site, as well as efficient meeting space.
