Welcome To Dinah's Garden Hotel

A Unique Brand of Hospitality in Palo Alto

Family owned and operated since 1957, Dinah’s Garden Hotel Palo Alto is a lush oasis in Silicon Valley and voted “Best Hotel in Palo Alto!”

Dinah’s is located on El Camino Real between San Jose and San Francisco International airports just three miles from Stanford University, downtown Palo Alto and Google headquarters. Our well-appointed guest rooms feature unique art, modern amenities and walkways are surrounded by tropical gardens with two Koi-filled lagoons.

The 97 guestrooms and 32 suites are inspired by decorum from around the globe – creating environments that are both relaxing and productive. Boutique and residential in feel, Milla and Raymond Handley created a destination that is refreshingly unique, rich in history and a break from the norm of chain hotels.

Guests enjoy the convenience of having two of Palo Alto’s highest rated restaurants on-site. Whether you opt for a casual dining experience at Dinah’s Poolside Restaurant or the Bay Area’s premier seafood option, THE SEA by Alexander’s Steakhouse, both options are just steps away.

Dinah's is also a perfect option for your next corporate group event. Our team has experience with small meetings and catered events that range from C-level executives to a wedding party of friends and family. In addition, our culinary team is prepared to impress with regional and seasonal organic ingredients.

Although Dinah’s Garden Hotel is a historic location, we are wired to keep up with the fast-paced nature of Silicon Valley with uncapped complimentary Wi-Fi and a full service business center. Come discover why we have been a destination creating a unique brand of hospitality for more than 55 years!
