Centrally located Palo Alto hotel. Easy walk to University Avenue restaurants and shopping, and to Stanford. Easy to drive to from one direction but complicated from the other (due to nearby railroad tracks).

Good location to downtown

Overall a good hotel. Room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was very good with generous portions. No freebies, no frills. Trains run frequently along the back side, No alarm clock needed, it will wake you up. The staff is excellent, customer service was fantastic, I would recommend this hotel on that alone.

Would never stay here again!

Upon checking into our room almost instantly there was a loud humming noise, this came and went every 30 seconds! When we called the front desk they said it was the elevator! Would relocate us but only had 1 choice a room with 2 double beds! Also in the middle of the night loud alarm to vacate the room! Sounded for approx 30 min which turned out to be a false alarm! Also smoke coming through the vent in the bathroom! Very disappointed in the Sheraton!

Incredibly noisy, couldn't sleep due to noise.

There were noises coming in all night that sounded as if someone had left a shower on all night long. Cannot explain where the noise came from. I am glad we were there only one night.

A little pricey, but worth it.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
It's conveniently located next to downtown PA and across from Stanford. The $10 charge for wifi was unecessary, and the room service was a bit pricey, but overall it was a really nice place to stay. Instead of paying $20 for a burrito though, I'd recommend walking 2 blocks to the 24hr Subway on University.
