About Garden Court Hotel

A perfect location for the San Francisco Bay Area Peninsula, San Jose, Silicon Valley and a 1/4 mile from Stanford University. This European, contemporary –chic style hotel is 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 have loads of natural light 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.

    We had our wedding at the Garden Court Hotel about a month ago and we could not have been happier. We received sooo many compliments about the elegance of the location. Our guests still tell us that the food was AMAZING and it was the best food they've had at a wedding. Seriously! Jesse, the venue's representative, was amazing to work with. A really great guy! He was super accommodating with our requests including working with us to bring in our favorite wine for the reception. He worked with us on getting a room for the groom to get ready in, the day of the wedding. We can't stop gushing about how absolutely beautiful the location was and just how it was all absolutely perfect. Even after the wedding, Jesse and the team were very responsive in helping us book our complimentary honeymoon in Spain (5 free nights in sister hotels in Spain, woohoo!) that comes with having your wedding with them. Thank you Jesse and the Garden Court Hotel.

    My wife and I recently got married at this hotel in June, 2015. We hosted a mid-sized (about 70 people) wedding ceremony and reception. To make it short, we had a highly positive experience working with Garden Court Hotel. Kelly was our event manager. From the beginning of the planning to the actual wedding date, our impression of Kelly was professional, experienced, friendly, and meticulous. She worked with us very efficiently to get all the details right. Often times she made great suggestions which we took and ultimately made the event felt more complete to us. On the wedding date, pretty much all the important things went as planned and we were able to relax and enjoy as much as we could, thanks to the organized efforts of GCH. We were happy with our decision to go with this venue and would recommend it to our friends. Garden Court Hotel is an exceptional venue with excellent service for a very reasonable price.

    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!

    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!!!
