Professional, Friendly, and Flexible

I had a wonderful experience planning my wedding with the Sheraton Palo Alto. Kristina Tobin (the Events Manager) is a top notch professional, as well as warm, humorous, and flexible. She is extremely knowledgeable and works closely with you to bring your vision of your special event to life. I was continuously impressed by her knowledge, patience, suggestions, and flexibility throughout our planning discussions. The extended staff (chef, banquet manager, etc) were all equally warm, engaging, and honest about what would work ideally with my vision. They have a 3 room setup (ballroom, dance floor with glass atrium ceiling, and cocktail area) all side by side for seamless transitions of your guests from one function to the next. The hotel premises are elegant and kept meticulously clean inside and out by the hardworking friendly staff. The complimentary parking and competitive rates truly sweetened the deal. I would highly recommend the Sheraton Palo Alto and especially Kristina Tobin to anyone considering a wedding in the South Bay area!

Kristina Tobin was awesome!

We had our wedding reception at the Sheraton Palo Alto this past July, and Kristina Tobin was our wedding coordinator at Sheraton. She was definitely one of the best vendors we've worked with. She was not only incredibly professional, she was also very friendly and kind.
She accommodated all of our requests, and made our wedding reception exactly the way we envisioned. During the entire process, Kristina also gave quite a bit of tips and suggestions to make our planning smoother. We are super grateful for everything she has done, and we highly recommend this venue and Kristina!

We had our wedding reception at Sheraton Palo Alto Hotel after a wedding ceremony at Stanford Memorial Church. The location is so convenient and our wedding coordinator Kristina Tobin was amazing. She really understood what we were looking for and helped us make every single detail perfect for the day, from the layout of the tables to all the details of the room decorations. For catering, we went with the Hibiscus Wedding Package. It was of great value and has all we need covered. Food was delicious too. We got tons of positive feedback from our guests, especially on the Half Moon Bay Baked Cod. Overall the day was a great success. We would truly like to say "Thank You" to Kristina Tobin for making it a sweet memory for us.
