The Epiphany Hotel in Palo Alto is Open and Ready for Your Tech Questions
We always love a hotel opening but we really love an earlier-than-expected hotel opening which is what happened with The Epiphany Hotel in Palo Alto, Calif. when it opened its doors yesterday, instead of on the scheduled date of April 1st. This totally makes up for the hotel not opening last summer.
Staff at the JDV Hotel greeted guests wearing super stylish Taylor Stitch custom-designed uniforms (which hardly look like uniforms considering they are dark denim jeans paired with oxford button downs) and happy faces. Not surprisingly, the first guest at the hotel was a VP of a software company based in Palo Alto.
The 86 rooms at the Epiphany Hotel, which is located a block off from University Avenue (as in Stanford University), come with complimentary high-speed internet access (obvi), Frette linens, Malin & Goetz toiletries, Illy espresso machines, honor bar and dry bar, a work desk with ergonomic chair, 47" Samsung TV and a G-link iPod docking stations which will wirelessly stream movies and video games to guest rooms TVs. There's also 24-hour room service and a turndown service too.
And the hotel is still promising the service of a Technology Concierge who will help you with all thing tech-related. But can they hook you up with a website designer or app developer for a new start-up venture? That remains to be seen.
The hotel's restaurant, Lure + Till, is not yet open but is serving breakfast and lunch through in-room dining. It will open for full breakfast, lunch and dinner service on Monday, March 17th. Previously, the restaurant was to be called Hopkins Tract.
Best of all, the hotel and all its tech-centric amenities won't cost you a fortune, like a hotel in San Francisco might. Rates this weekend start at just $239 a night for a deluxe king room.
