I love this boutique hotel. The service is great, rooms are large, fantastic location except for the trains on one side of the property. Would recommend this hotel for any short stay business travelers

HORRIBLE SUBSTANDARD MANAGEMENT

It is a very nice property that presents well. It is located right next to train tracks with commuter trains running very frequently. It feels like an earthquake as they pass. We arrived to find no bellman at front lobby. Eventually we the found front desk. We arrived at 3pm and room was not ready. We waited in a very nice courtyard for about 40 minutes. I had to go back to front desk to inquire and room was suddenly ready. Bellman finally appeared to get our luggage. As we entered the elevator there was a very powerful mold smell mixed with potpourri which would indicate excessive moisture in the elevator shaft and management wanting to mask the smell.

We went to suite 343 which was small and had a very unusual configuration. Room had a cooler not a refrigerator which had a plate of rotten fruit in it. Bellman asked if we wanted a refrigerator. Neither of us knew how to respond to the stupidity of the question. Why have a cooler the same size and shape as a refer but then offer a refer. How about we get rid of the coolers people. Alice had text me in advance to see if we needed anything. I had asked for a hot water kettle which was not there. Bellman said he would take care of it and did. I asked at the front desk for kettle and extra wash clothes. Never got the wash clothes and had to call again later that night. Went to check out restaurant (Menlo Tavern) which was mediocre at best on dinner menu. Went to Flemings instead a block away. Maitre d' explained the restaurant had recently changed management and was different from hotel management. I can imagine how bad it was before. Very unusual that he felt he needed to explain that.

That night we tried to shower but the environmentally friendly practices of this hotel are so excessive that there was no water pressure. Faucets were fine but the shower heads are so restricted they whistle. The shower spray is stronger in the cheapest of RVs.

I tried to use the safe, but it was dead.

There are no "Do Not Disturb" signs so employees enter the room anytime they want when you are gone.

We were in town as my wife was having surgery at Stanford Hospital. Around 8 pm on the second day my wife was being released and I had to get our luggage and get back to pick her up ASAP. As I parked at the lobby to load up luggage I was grilled by the bellman about parking there. I was the only vehicle at that time and there were 5 vehicles parked there all day earlier. The last thing I wanted to do was pay this guy to get my luggage. I made two trips to the room to retrieve it myself

Bottom line this is a nice hotel with Motel 6 management. You cant charge $600-1200 for a room and give the substandard level of service that is prolific at this property. There is only one opportunity to make a first impression and this hotel fails on far to many of those. There are much better hotel choices nearby.
