A Silicon Valley Escape

Stanford Park Hotel sits at the crossroads of Stanford University, Silicon Valley, and some of the region’s top culture and attractions. Stroll along Palo Alto’s University Avenue for unique shopping, top-rated restaurants and nightlife, or explore Menlo Park’s quiet, yet vibrant town of pleasant, tree-lined streets. To see the golden age of American garden design, we suggest the Filoli Gardens, or visit the Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden, a historic Palo Alto treasure. Dozens of wineries and local breweries are within driving distance, and Stanford Park Hotel is also close to some of the top venues for events and festivals, including the Shoreline Amphitheater and the SAP Center at San Jose.

The tree is depicted on the city of Palo Alto’s official seal and is more famously seen on the seal of Stanford University. It is presumably the origin of the city’s name.
