ABOUT

This luxury boutique hotel is considered an ideal destination wedding venue.  Family and friends may stay in modern, guest rooms, attend the ceremony, dine and dance at the reception, and then gather the following day for a farewell brunch.

Situated in Palo Alto’s lovely downtown district, neighbor to Stanford University and central to the San Francisco Bay Area Peninsula, this hotel offers a myriad of Silicon Valley sites, entertainment and shops to enjoy during any guest down time over the celebration weekend.

The details of a wedding at Garden Court Hotel are planned and orchestrated seamlessly by an accomplished on-property team.  The Garden Court Hotel team is world renowned for their skills of quiet observation, anticipating guests’ needs, and delivering service with a professional warm and gracious style.

Each of the three main event rooms have an abundance of natural light during the day, and in the evenings are transformed into romantic settings.  Easy California style entertaining with outdoor space adjacent to each room.  All encircles an open-air courtyard and fountains adding to the romance and charm of the property’s landscape.  In the evening, the gardens come to life with thousands of twinkle lights casting a soft glow in the outdoor spaces. The on-site chef and event team can create a customized menu for the reception inspired by Mediterranean and Californian cuisines using local and regional fresh ingredients.  While all menus and beverages are provided through the hotel, favorite wines and champagnes may be arranged for a small corkage fee. With elegant ballrooms, striking Mediterranean architecture, and luxury accommodations, a Garden Court Hotel wedding is truly memorable.
