​Marriott Residence Inn in Menlo Park holds grand opening


With a satisfying "snip," Mayor Catherine Carlton used a pair of scissors as long as her forearm to slash the red ribbon at the grand opening of the Marriott Residence Inn in Menlo Park on Sept. 16.

The 138-room hotel, located at 555 Glenwood Ave. in Menlo Park, has been open for four months. It's on the site of a former senior housing facility called Casa de Peninsula.

The grand opening event was a way to thank the city, vendors, and everyone involved for welcoming the hotel to Menlo Park, said hotel general manager Lia Kandel. "We're happy to be part of this neighborhood."

Hotel patrons are typically business travelers or visitors to Stanford, front desk receptionist Jocelyn Angeles said.

Typical nightly rates are $389 for a studio, $409 for a one-bedroom suite, and $419 for a two-bedroom suite. Each room has a kitchen and a king-size bed.

In addition, the hotel has a fitness room, a prepaid coupon for guests to access pool facilities at Menlo Swim and Sport, and complimentary laundry service and grocery delivery service. The hotel hosts a social hour each Monday through Wednesday with complimentary beer, wine and various snacks.

As a "residence inn," this hotel differs primarily from other Marriott hotels by offering kitchen suites, and can accommodate guests long-term, said Ms. Angeles. In addition, she added, "It's more homey and comfy."
