About Garden Court Hotel

A perfect location for the San Francisco Bay Area Peninsula, San Jose and Silicon Valley. This European, contemporary –chic style hotel is the only luxury boutique hotel in the City Center of Downtown Palo Alto, California.

Five star services are personable with extraordinary attention to detail.

The open-air interior courtyard and central fountain create a lovely ambiance and a private world in the center of everything.

Event spaces sorrounded with natural lighting and at dusk the gardens come to life with twinkle lights. Each space has an adjacent outside balcony or patio offering the perfect blend of indoor-outdoor flow for your party.

Guestrooms have been completely remodeled and offer elegant luxury with modern sensibilities with the intimacy only a small hotel can provide.

    Best. Wedding. Ever.

    Wonderful venue, incredible staff. Delicious food, professional execution. Everything was stinky and Juli Calderon was an absolute dream. Thank you for helping us celebrate the beginning of our marriage with a bang!

    An Amazing Wedding Reception Experience

    Words can not describe how appreciative I am of Jesse! He was our point of contact throughout of wedding planning process when we selected to host our reception at the Garden Court. Jesse was great in providing us feedback on our plans and making spot on suggestions to make sure everything went off without a hitch.

    If you are planning a wedding reception, I highly recommend doing it here - not only is the food amazing (I was getting compliments all night), but the Terrace room on the 2nd floor is absolutely lovely - the beautiful dome windows and private balcony are just perfect for family and friends to take a breather and go outside to chat and get some air during the festivities.

    There are also so many amazing perks with hosting a wedding here - among those complimentary stay in one of their lovely suites and also complimentary stay at one of the sister hotels in Spain for 5 nights. I was really touched when we entered our suite at the end of the night and saw rose petals trailing to the bedroom and decorating the bed in the shape of a heart. Everyone I interacted with from the Garden Court was so amazingly sweet and helpful and I received endless compliments on the venue and food.

    I love shooting at the Garden Court Hotel in Palo Alto! The staff is highly professional and their clients are treated with the kind of care you'd expect from the best of hotels. Downtown Palo Alto is charming and has great little spots all over for making unique wedding photos. The courtyard at the hotel is stunning and looks amazing at night. You really have to check it out!

    Garden Court Hotel is a charming gem in Palo Alto. The rooms are updated and tastefully modern, yet the courtyard has an Old World feel. At night the courtyard looks extra lovely with lamp posts and stringed lights. Wonderfully romantic spot for a wedding and the staff here takes excellent care of you!

  • In Full Bloom Wedding Florists

    GCH is my favorite venue to do business with; not only is the entire staff a dream to work with because of the team spirit & kindness, I just love the atmosphere. I feel like I'm in another world in Europe, especially w/ the amazing dishes they serve. I've been here as part of networking groups/ guest at weddings & parties & also as the floral designer working for clients weddings & parties. The whole gamut & I always leave with a very satisfied heart. Oh- I've also delivered flowers to the room of the brides & just love the room decor! What an awesome hotel in the heart of Palo Alto!!!
