Discover Why We’re “Where to Stay” in Palo Alto!

Whether you’re planning a family vacation, a romantic weekend getaway with someone special or a budget-friendly business trip to Silicon Valley, The Zen Hotel offers the perfect accommodations for leisure and executive travelers seeking a relaxing, comfortable home away from home in Palo Alto. 

Leisure Travel

The Zen Hotel is especially convenient if you’re visiting friends or relatives attending Stanford University: we’re located just minutes from the campus, yet still close to the San Francisco Bay area’s top attractions. Stanford University itself is a fascinating place to visit, with its unique 19th century architecture and an array of art galleries. You can also delve into the past at the Historic Red Barn or take a self-guided Outdoor Sculpture Walk.

We’re also just a 20-minute drive away from Santa Clara, where you can catch a San Francisco 49ers game at the new Levi’s Stadium. The Zen Hotel also offers the perfect location for those taking in a concert at the Shoreline Amphitheater.

The Golden Gate Bridge, Hoover Tower and other attractions are within easy reach. Enjoy a show at the West Bay Opera, catch a San Francisco Giants game or roam the Stanford Shopping Center.

Plan your itinerary before leaving the hotel by using our free wireless Internet access. And when you’re back from a fun day of sightseeing, unwind in our serene Zen garden or watch your favorite shows on a flat-screen HDTV. And there’s also no need to skip your workout while traveling: you’ll find a well-equipped fitness center right on-site.

If you have any questions are area attractions or would like assistance in arranging a tour, just ask one of our friendly staff members.
