Nobu Hotel Palo Alto King room

Experience a luxurious, intimate stay in the heart of Palo Alto and Silicon Valley. Our boutique hotel has 73 rooms and is home to the critically-acclaimed Nobu Restaurant. Boasting views of the city, Santa Cruz mountains, Stanford University, and the Bay Area, Nobu Hotel Palo Alto was designed by Montalba Architects in Los Angeles.

The calm and tranquility of a Nobu Hotel stay is just what we need right now, where soothing, natural light elevates rich stone, teak wood, and Venetian plaster ceilings integrated throughout the hotel design. Japanese minimalist furniture and fixtures provides an aesthetically pleasing experience, like George Nakashima’s legendary chairs and John Wigmore’s ethereal light sculptures.

Below, local experts in our Nobu community curated a Microguide® for you to explore Palo Alto and other nearby points of interest. Because of these unprecedented COVID-19 times, we encourage you to check each location for current hours of operation and social distancing requirements.
