Experiencing the Epiphany in Palo Alto
By Norah Bradford
Palo Alto may be less well known to many travellers located some 25 mins south of San Francisco's airport SFO and about 45 mins in traffic from the City itself. Better well known perhaps is the University
of Stanford and the Technology companies which were born in the town including Google and Facebook to name but two.
The leafy low rise town exemplifies low-key and at a passing glance you would not figure that the town is amongst the most expensive with the best educated citizens in the United States of America.
Not only for business travellers, but also for those seeking a home from home to explore South of the Bay area the Hotel Epiphany is a natural choice. Technology tourism is also catered for as the Hotel is next door to one of the first offices ever used by technology giants Google and Facebook.
Given this lineage the Hotel Epiphany established by JDV Hotels fills the void in the town for a boutique luxury hotel experience which blends in with the town and its hunger for technological entrepreneurialism.
The rooms are well appointed with frette sheets on the beds and excellent toiletries selection from Malin & Geotz. Rounding off the feel are large screen LCD televisions and a Lily espresso maker not to mention the Revo SuperConnect radio which blends cutting edge technology with old school looks.
Venturing out from your room, the hotel has a restaurant which, for breakfast, serves one of the best café latte's you could hope to taste. Lure + Till managed by Chef Patrick Kelly partners with local farmers, fishermen and foragers to create a genuinely fresh dining experience.
After taking in the ambience of the hotel and the town you will probably feel like wanting to start your own technology enterprise. Fortunately The Epiphany Hotel is ready to help you with the Tinderbox Boardroom, Accelerator business suite and conference rooms.
