Welcome to el Prado Hotel

A Modern Hotel in Downtown Palo Alto

Formerly known as the Garden Court, the all-new el PRADO Hotel has emerged from a recent refresh to become one of the most unique hotels in downtown Palo Alto. Framed by charming Spanish architecture, we feature a distinctive European ambiance and bright, airy and open interiors that simultaneously soothe and inspire arriving guests. 

el PRADO, “the meadow” and our hotel draws its name and inspiration from this concept to provide an open and tranquil respite found along a traveler's journey. Effortlessly moving between Old World character and modern comfort, our luxury hotel offers the intimacy of a stately Spanish home infused with contemporary style and sophistication.
