Welcome to Hotel Keen

A Sleek Hotel in the Heart of Palo Alto

Step into downtown Palo Alto’s Hotel Keen and discover our Keen Sense of Style. Sleek, modern and compact, our intimate boutique hotel sits at the nexus of Silicon Valley and Stanford University.

With a simple, form-meets-function aesthetic, we offer a blank canvas for innovators and entrepreneurs to share, come alive and thrive. Designed by Orlando Diaz-Azcuy, Hotel Keen is a contemporary landmark at the center of a landscape buzzing with high-tech energy and creativity. It’s a place where the Stanford campus and the bistros, cafés and fashionable restaurants of University Avenue can be reached with just a short walk, and the corporations and start-ups of Sand Hill Road and Silicon Valley are accessed within minutes.

Hotel Keen… A place like no other in the heart of Palo Alto.


Where Downtown Energy Meets Modern Amenities

Join us each evening for wine tasting in the lobby from 5:00pm - 8:00pm.

Palo Alto’s top eateries and things to do are just moments from our front door. Ask about our favorites or take a walk and let impulse be your guide.

Need a jolt? Fuel your day (or night) at our 24-hour coffee and Nespresso bar...Because viral can happen at any time – and we’re ready.
