The Clement Hotel resides right in the beating heart of Palo Alto, steps from Stanford University’s scenic Arboretum Grove and within an hour of San Francisco, San Jose, scenic nature preserves and the beaches of the Monterey Peninsula. But it’s not just the location that make this brand-new property a catch: Its signature offering is its extensive all-inclusive program, which covers so much more than just breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks.
You’ll certainly receive those things, but you can expect them to be of a noticeably higher quality than usual. Meals highlight what’s fresh and in season, in flavorful dishes of California favorites, while the drink menu features a range of beers and Napa and Sonoma wines. The dining spaces are lovely, too, like an open kitchen, an outdoor dining terrace with a fire pit, a living room with a fireplace and a rooftop pool deck. Not that you have to dine in one of these at all – you can also order treats directly to your room. Nor do you have to dine during designated hours, as a well-stocked guest pantry is also included and open 24 hours a day.
There are just 23 accommodations here, all styled to feel like private residences and inspired by NorCal’s laid-back vibe. Luxurious additions run from sumptuous Matouk linens to a 65-in. IPTV by Samsung and a Nespresso Vertuoline coffeemaker. One Bedroom suites comprise a separate living room and bedroom, plus a bathroom lined in stone, with a soaking tub.
The Open Kitchen is where your three daily meals of fresh California cuisine are prepared, all included with your stay. They’re served either in this space, in the indoor dining area, by the outdoor dining room’s fire pit, by the living room’s fireplace or upon the glamorous cabana-lined rooftop deck. Look forward to dishes like breakfast paninis, oysters Rockefeller and handmade fig-and-gorgonzola ravioli, and drinks that range from Spring Jade tea to select Napa Cabernets and Sonoma Chardonnays. A fully stocked guest pantry is available 24 hours a day.
Palo Alto’s greatest hits are within easy reach of your accommodation – the Stanford campus is across the street, and downtown’s shops, restaurants and spas are an easy walk. Napa Valley wine country, the Monterey Peninsula, San Jose and San Francisco are all close enough for day trips. Don’t miss the Baylands Nature Preserve, known as the Bay Area’s largest tract of undisturbed marshland and just 15 minutes from Clement’s front door.
How to Get There
Enjoyed a lovely staycation at The Clement Hotel in Palo Alto. The service, accommodations, and food is top-notch! The rooftop is awesome and features a pool, hot tub, and cabanas. I look forward to staying at the hotel again!
We could not have been more impressed with this hotel experience. Upon arrival we were greeted with a warm smile by our personal concierge, Bernie, who was a spectacular host for us during our stay. The suite we stayed in was lovely and the amenities, specifically the rooftop pool and cabanas, were stunning. I want to make sure to comment on the food and drink because we were pleasantly surprised at every meal. At breakfast the eggs Benedict was delicious because of a homemade hollandaise sauce that contained just the right amount of creamy and spicy. At dinner the gnocchi was clearly homemade and came out perfectly. We also enjoyed the beef tenderloin that was cooked perfectly. The cocktails were great but even more impressing was the quality of wine from the Rose to the Zinfandel. Just splendid. Thanks Bernie!
I stayed one night in late September 2017 but never got the time to review it. I took a stay-cation and decided to treat myself, not only the hotel room was top-notch quality, the service and food were superb! From check-in, the receptionist was so courteous and introduced me the space before taking to my room, and the staff asked when I'd like to have dinner and what I'd like to have, and the dinner was brought up right away when I went down. They offered vast variety of food, dessert, and drink. The pool on the roof was beautiful, and you could see El Camino Real from the roof top. The room consisted of a living room, bedroom, and a spacious bathroom, and it provided everything I needed/wanted. When I checked out the next day, the staff was also very courteous and friendly. Overall, I could say this is my best hotel experience ever! You feel you're like a VIP there. Good food, superb service, beautiful room! I'd totally go back again!
So I stumbled across this gem by chance.
Honestly this is the best business hotel I have stayed at and I had just come from the Ritz Carlton in Dallas. The staff were exceptional. The hotel perfect. I will Be back. Aaron
I have not stayed here but book rooms often for my boss. They are the easiest hotel to work with that I have ever come across, and I have booked with probably hundreds. They are willing to do anything they can to make their guest experience wonderful.
