Established by Leiland Stanford Sr., founder of Stanford University, Palo Alto includes portions of the campus, which is walking distance from downtown and Nobu Hotel Palo Alto.  This hip walkable city blends small-town accessibility, posh college life and the technology epicenter of “Silicon Valley”.

Along University Ave, tree lined streets are bustling with cute boutique shops, restaurants and bars just steps from the hotel. Stop by Steve Jobs’ favorite cafe for a coffee or walk a few blocks to the HP garage where the company was founded.

If you need to escape the city, catch the Marguerite shuttle to hike the “Stanford Dish” for a hike or hop off at the Cantor Arts Center, home to the largest collection of Rodin sculptures.
