Downtown Palo Alto is rockin’.
If you haven't been in some time, check in to the new Hotel Keen, which opened about a month ago.
The chic, minimalist design feels like a boutique W Hotel, and the plush, cozy beds make you wish you could take one home (they are custom-built).
The hotel is within walking distance to bars (check out Coconuts Caribbean Restaurant and Bar for specialty mojitos), restaurants (Macarthur Park for Jumbo Diver Scallops or tasty BBQ), nightlife, and a short drive to the shore.
