711 El Camino Real, (650) 322-7111. 23 rooms; 3 stories. $$$$+. Pool; hot tub; fitness room. All-inclusive: meals, snacks, cocktails, tips, valet parking included; 24-hr. room service. Pets ok.
Built just in 2016, this unusual all-inclusive, all-suite boutique hotel is across the street from Stanford University and within walking distance of downtown--but who wants to leave? The idea is to enjoy all the luxurious amenities.
All meals are included at The Clement Hotel, and guests do not need reservations--you just appear in the dining room when you want to eat. The chef prepares meals to order in an open kitchen area off the dining room. Guests can also dine outside on a patio or have their meal delivered to the room. Additionally, a 24-hour Guest Pantry is stocked with items such as ice cream, fruit plates, and mini Bundt cakes, and alcoholic beverages are included and can also be delivered to the pool or room upon request (when I got hungry after a hot-tub dip, I ordered up a margarita and some delicious housemade potato chips). All this, and rooms have stocked mini bars, too!
Guest suites include a separate sitting room with a coffee table topped with a sweet little live bonsai and several coffee table books, two 65-inch TVs plus a 20-incher in the bathroom mirror, and free phone calls within the U.S. Decor is in subdued contemporary greys and black, and furnishings are stylishly modern. The posh beds are made with deep toppers and Matouk linens. A spacious marble bathroom has a heated white-marble floor, a lovely live orchid, an oversize oval soaking tub and separate rain-head shower enclosure, and a separate closet for the Toto toilet equipped with a heated seat and all the other bells and whistles.
I want to go back now!
