Westin Hotel in Palo Alto

Having some extra time to explore, we walked by  the nearby hotel from Sheraton, it was the Westin.  We were gonna  go for a walk at Stanford University  campus but we were  worried that we  might miss the buss that would pick us up to go to Google headquarters.
  The beautiful  rock display in front of the hotel really captured our attention.  Whoever thought of this idea is brilliant because you can't miss this kind of  landmark when you are looking for this specific hotel.
 I am almost scared to  get underneath it but we had to take pictures in there lol.  I have never stayed in Westin Hotel yet but looking at the pile of  cars in their  parking space, I would say that they have a lot of clients there.
We got to see  some parts of Palo Alto, Mountain View, and San Francisco.  It was an amazing journey for all of us.  Maybe next time we    go to California, it would be for vacation purposes only so that we could  really explore  the different cities.

What a beautiful experience. I've never been to California surprisingly even though I have family there. That pic under the statue came out beautiful!

I've never been to any U.S. state, so I can only imagine with the help of your photos what it would be like for me (for us) to visit these places in California that you mentioned.

I have never been to California but I have been wanting to go forever. It is definitely a place full of life and places to explore. I would take the walking route as well to take in all the beautiful architecture and people.

Looks like a great hotel. I like Westins.

Amy Glass said...

I have never been to San Francisco. I love the rock display, and you are right that it does make for a great landmark. I would love to visit some day. And it looks like you were having nice weather for a walk!

Sue Lau said...

Love seeing the sculpture! It sounds like a really nice place. And pretty hard to miss considering this "stop and look" piece of art! I will have to drive by and see it next time I am out there, even if I don't have a chance to stay there.

I would have been scared to get underneath that rock structure as well! Looks like you guys had great weather for exploring in California! I loved the weather when we were there a couple years ago much better then dreary Washington rain!

That is definitely a neat set of rocks. My family will have to visit it if we ever make it out of Oklahoma. It's been so long since we took a family vacation outside of the state.

That is a cool rock column! I've never been to that area of California, but I have stayed in a Westin hotel before. They are really nice hotels. I hope you had fun visiting the Google campus. Did you go back to visit Stanford later?

Adanna said...

This is so awesome! I love architecture and I love traveling and checking out new places by foot as well. How did you like Google headquarters? I imagine it to be very creative and fun.

Rochkirstin Santos said...

Wow, you visited a lot of places in a short time. The stone display looked really gigantic. How long did you plan for that journey and the itinerary? Did it include a lot of costs? I'm sure the kids did enjoy the travel.

That rock display is beautiful and unique! Makes for a great picture with friends or loved ones visiting this hotel.
