Unwind in guestrooms featuring unique art and modern amenities

Welcome to Dinah’s Garden Hotel

Stay at Our Beautiful Boutique Hotel in Palo Alto

Step into Dinah’s Garden Hotel and you’ll immediately sense this isn’t your typical chain hotel. With 129 rooms and suites arranged around charming tropical gardens teeming with exotic plants, koi ponds and lagoons, cascading water and fountains, Japanese bridges, gazebos and stone sculptures, we offer a quiet escape from the usual corporate experience. Family-owned and operated since 1957, Dinah’s Garden Hotel is a lush oasis in Silicon Valley. Come see why we were rated the “Most Popular Hotel in Palo Alto!” This is where different lives.

From our cozy lobby filled with colonial-era furniture and original artwork from Africa, Asia and India to modern amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi and a full-service business center, we’ve offered Palo Alto’s most unique brand of hospitality for more than 60 years. Guests also enjoy the convenience of having two locally loved restaurants onsite. 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 are just steps away.  Dinah’s is conveniently located on El Camino Real between San Jose and San Francisco International airports, just three miles from Stanford University, downtown Palo Alto and many Silicon Valley Companies including Google, Facebook, Hewlett Packard, Amazon, and LinkedIn.
