Cardinal Hotel temporarily closed

(updated May 29, 2020)

We continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 here in Palo Alto and as it affects domestic and international travel. In our best efforts to evaluate an unknown and constantly changing environment, we struggle with the decision of when to reopen the Cardinal hotel to our loyal guests, valued colleagues at Stanford, many local business partners and travel agents around the globe. We will update our website regularly and hope to have good news soon.

Our decision to remain closed is in response to concerns for the health and safety of guests and staff resulting from COVID-19 combined with the current “shelter in place” orders of Governor Gavin Newsom that continue to impact the general business environment of Santa Clara County and thus Palo Alto.

Please accept our sincere apologies for any unintended impact our closure has had on your travel to Palo Alto. We wish you all continued safety and health and look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back to The Cardinal Hotel.
