Downtown Palo Alto, where Garden Court Hotel is located, has one of Northern California's best climates, so any time is a great time to visit. Known for its cool winters and warm summers, the weather here rarely reaches extreme temperatures. (The temperate climate makes it a good year-round destination for those who want to try out Palo Alto's golf courses.) Also something to consider when organizing a trip to the boutique hotel: the activities of nearby Stanford University. During fall's football season, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel fills with Stanford alumni and fans from the opposing Pac-12 team. Likewise, friends and family members of graduates take up temporary residence at Garden Court in June around commencement.
