I am also fasinated by the whole deal and hope I get to see what they are doing on a monitor.
Everybody: More info on Palo Alto
1) They are giving Stanford patients a 50% food and drinks (non-alcoholic) coupon for thier resturant - eat-in - Saves a lot of money so ask for it.
2) There is bottled water in the room for $3 for a 1 liter bottle. I drank one cause the water here is nasty. My husband thought that was terrible to pay that but I was tired and did not care.
3) Internet access it $9.95 for 24 hours. I used my iphone or went to the lobby and used the complimtery computers there. Friday when I am recouping in the room I will pay the $ for it.
That's all I can think of now, oh, the beds are awesome!!
The shopping center is so cool and we enjoyed it very much. Bus ride is free! Bloomindales, Macy's, Neiman Marcus, Crate and Barrell plus many, many small shops and many designer shops!! Michael Kors!! OMG!!
There is a market there also, Andronico's 500 Stanford Shopping Center - that has a deli, bakery, salad bar, olive bar and drumroll please..... 1 gallon bottled water for $1.49!!! David got a big fat pastry for his breakfast in the morning for $2.12 since I can't eat after midnight.
Oh yeah, the handbag I was going to buy is still in Nieman Marcus
It was a Louis Vutton and it was $1100 with a $438 charm attached. I took a picture of it to remember it by. I will post that later.
One more thing. There is a McDonalds in the Stanford shopping center and it does have a $1 menu.......
The flowers and palm trees are amazing here. It is a very beautiful place to visit.
